Jamia Millia Islamia and Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) have been assessed and accredited by NAAC for the first cycle with an "A" Grade, seperate statements from the two university officials said Wednesday.

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) assessment was carried out in the third week of February.

The assessment and accreditation has reinforced Jamia's outstanding credentials as an institution of excellence, the statement added.

Talat Ahmad, vice chancellor, Jamia Millia Islamia expressed happiness and satisfaction at the outcome of the long-drawn NAAC-related preparedness.

"It was a collective achievement of all the stake-holders in the university," the VC said.

However, he chose to underline that new initiatives need to be unfolded to reinforce the activities in relation to NAAC's evaluative parameters to make the institution amenable to the second cycle Peer review in another five years.

The National Assessment and Accreditation Council, in its assessment result of 130 First Cycle institutions published March 3, 2015 after the 5th Meeting of its Standing Committee, has given 3.35 Cumulative Grade Point Average (CGPA) to AMU.

The Vice Chancellor of Aligarh Muslim University, Lt. Gen. Zameer Uddin Shah while expressing happiness, congratulated students, faculty members and non-teaching staff on the historic achievement.

He said that it was a collective effort of all members of the University fraternity, which created a niche for AMU amongst the few best universities in India.

Gen. Shah reiterated that all efforts will be made to garner first position amongst all universities and institutions of higher learning when the AMU goes for second cycle assessment. He urged the AMU community to work harder to achieve the target.

NAAC is an autonomous body established by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country.
