National Board of Accreditation

The National Board of Accreditation (NBA), India was established by AICTE (All India Council of Technical Education) as an autonomous body under section 10(u) of AICTE act, 1987 for periodic evaluations of technical institutions & programmes basis according to specified norms and standards as recommended by AICTE council. It has the full authority to recognise or derecognise institutions and programmes under them. It is the only authorized body in India entrusted with the task of undertaking accreditation of technical education programmes [1]

Following the decision to close down the AICTE in the wake of a corruption scandal, the then Union Education Minister Kapil Sibal announced that the National Board of Accreditation will be elevated as an independent body and become the nodal agency responsible for accreditation in India.[2] The National Board of Accreditation has since become an Independent Society constituted under the Registrar of Cooperative Societies.
