Colleges will be evaluated based on infrastructure, administration, finance, quality of academic input, placement opportunity and student care. Dr. Sudha Seshayyan, registrar of the university, in a circular to principals of all colleges said, the university has proposed to device a robust rating system, to rank the affiliated colleges based on the rating system and to derive set of action points for colleges to improve their performance standard on various evaluated parameters. The survey will start on May 1 and will go on for 11 weeks.

The university has urged principals to make necessary improvements in the college and take up the rating system with full confidence to get the top star status. 
“We will be periodically rating the colleges so as to enable colleges with lesser grade to improve their standards. The university will be employing a separate agency to conduct the grading work,” she said.
Inspection teams from Medical Council of India (MCI) and the university had pulled up several colleges for lack of infrastructure, besides functioning with less number of beds and patients. “Most of the colleges manage to run the college violating all norms. With this audit in process colleges will be forced to provide all facilities else they will be taken to task,” the official said.
