Abstract


There is a belief that ‘the only safe and better way to improve quality of higher education in India is to delink most of the colleges from affiliating structure. Colleges with academic and operational freedom are doing better and have more credibility’1. In order to attain autonomy, colleges are expected to have ‘Academic/ extension/research achievements of the faculty’, as one of the stated objectives to grant autonomy is to ‘Promote research in relevant fields’1.
