The information on Indian education and Indian institutions, here are a few recommended websites which would provide a good overview of Indian education and statutory apex bodies in higher education.
One may begin one’s learning on Indian education system from the official, Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD), Government of India (GOI), website which is www.education.nic.in and the page on higher education is http://www.education.nic.in/higedu.asp.
Information on recognized secondary and higher secondary school boards / councils can be found at www.education.nic.in/circulars/boards.asp
Following are the links of statutory bodies for higher education and their affiliate bodies in India.
Several differences between Indian and U.S. universities exist. Major difference is the role of central or state governments in the field of higher education. Admissions, assessment and evaluations are generally centralized in contrast to the U.S. universities where at graduate level both admissions and evaluations are highly decentralized.
The accreditation by the two official accrediting agencies also provides some idea on the quality of an institution and its programs. For example, NAAC has a grading system in which institutions are graded on an alpha-numerical scale of 95-100 score for A++ grade to 55-60 score for C grade and seven intermittent grades. Similarly the NBA of AICTE accredits programs for three or five years. Obviously, programs with five year validity are better than those that have been given three-year validity
