As per National Assessment and Accreditation
Council (NAAC) guidelines 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 becomes a part of the institution's system and works towards
realization 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.

per the NAAC guidelines, with the Principals as Chair person.
