In a recent evaluation by the National Accreditation and Assessment Council (NAAC) held in the second week of September 2017, Midnapore College (Autonomous) has secured second position in the entire eastern region and seventh position in the whole country. The college has scored 3.60 (A+) as against the city based St. Xavier’s College topping the list in the eastern region with a score of 3.71 (A++) in the third cycle assessment. It is worth accolades that a college based in this small town has meticulously followed every single point raised by NAAC in its latest recommendations as also the new addendum in the the guidelines and the audit observations of the Green Auditor. The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) is an autonomous body established by the University Grants Commission (UGC) of India to assess and accredit institutions of higher education in the country. Dr. Paritosh Nandi, the Green Auditor of the Midnapore College on behalf of Kolkata based company Nandi Resources Generation Technology Pvt. Ltd. speaking about the effectiveness of Energy Audit and Green Audit stated: “ NAAC with its Criteria VII has been instrumental in bringing about futuristic visio which is in line with the governmental goals and priorities. A participative energy conservation in a college or university campus should have a percolating effect among teachers and students, and deployment of renewable energy to the best of an Institute’s capability should also have a converging point at the 175 GW target for renewable energy in the country by the year 2022”.
