Application are invited for Junior Research Fellow in Punjabi University



Punjabi University, Patiala, has kept up its spree of winning the highest "A" grade on a four-point scale amongst over 350 universities in the country. The status is awarded by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), which is an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission, for a period of five years. The rare status is given by the NAAC on the basis of overall performance of a University during a space of five years.  Punjabi university was earlier given "five star level" by the NAAC for the period covering March 2002-2007. The NAAC has reformatted the grading system from "five stars to one star level" to from "A to C" grade, equating "five stars" with "A" grade.
