National Institutional Ranking Framework (NIRF) is a ranking methodology adopted by the Ministry of Education, GoI, to rank institutions of higher education in India. It considers many parameters such as Teaching and Learning Resources, Admissions and Graduation Outcomes, Perception, Outreach & Inclusivity, Research output and Professional Practices, Infrastructure and Resounce utilisations etc to rank the institution.
This National Ranking system is quality indicator and helps students to choose the best institution for their studies.
Through extreme hardwork by all the team members, Saraswati Dental College & Hospital is climbing steadily on its visionary path to become a Centre of Excellence and a Global band in the field of Dental education, Healthcare and Research.
In pursuance of its Action Plan for performance evaluation, assessment and accreditation and quality up-gradation of institutions of higher education, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore proposes that every accredited institution should establish an Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC) as a post-accreditation quality sustenance measure. Since quality enhancement is a continuous process, the IQAC will become a part of the institution’s system and work towards the realisation of the goals of quality enhancement and sustenance. The prime task of the IQAC is to develop a system for conscious, consistent and catalytic improvement in the overall performance of institutions. For this, during the post-accreditation period, it will channelize all efforts and measures of the institution towards promoting its holistic academic excellence. The work of the IQAC is the first step towards internalization and institutionalization of quality enhancement initiatives. Its success depends upon the sense of belongingness and participation it can inculcate in all the constituents of the institution. It will not be yet another hierarchical structure or a record-keeping exercise in the institution. It will be a facilitative and participative voluntary system/unit/organ of the institution. It has the potential to become a vehicle for ushering in quality enhancement by working out planned interventionist strategies to remove deficiencies and enhance quality like the “Quality Circles” in industries.
