The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has awarded the third highest score to Kirori Mal College among multi-disciplinary colleges in Delhi University. The college was awarded a score of 3.54 and was categorized in ‘A+’ category after two rounds of grading. NAAC teams have been visiting colleges across Delhi University to assess and grade them on the basis of parameters like curriculum, faculty, infrastructure, research, learning resources, organisation, and student services. While Shri Ram College of Commerce (SRCC) was ranked 1st with a score of 3.65, Lady Shri Ram College (LSR) was ranked 2nd with a score of 3.61.
The changes in the college are being attributed to the new officiating principal, Mr. Dinesh Khattar. In the last one year the college has seen a lot of changes like becoming disabled-free by constructing ramps to make the building accessible, and making the administration student friendly. Speaking to DU Beat, Dr. Dinesh Khattar said “It’s a historic moment for the college as this is the highest grade received by a college belonging to the University of Delhi, offering multidisciplinary courses, especially those belonging to science disciplines. This has been made possible due to the exemplary contribution of teachers, students and the non-teaching colleagues. I specially acknowledge the contribution of our illustrious and hardworking students in this achievement.”
Nikhil Agrawal, a student of the KMC said “The administration has become student- friendly. Our grievances are being heard. We all are happy the way KMC in changing. And I hope KMC will reach greater heights in the coming days.” The college has seen a good teacher and student interaction in recent times. Several Innovation Projects taken up by the teachers and the activities of societies also helped in the bagging the good score.
