Salient Points Discussed:
1. For examination purpose, we need an examination complex. One needs three things
1.1. Place 
we need 4 rooms. 
Rooms for
(a)The controller (b) The deputy controller (c) for the paper distribution and  (d) store the examination papers.
Biometrically controlled.
1.2. Personnel
 2 or 3 clerks and one full time deputy controller, who is very techno savvy, preferably a retired faculty, and with a salary of 35,000-50,000 per month.
Controller of examination will just sign the certificate and schedule the exams, all other exam related work will be done by the Deputy Controller.
1.3. Software 
2. The certificate issued by the thevara college has 10 security features.
3. One needs to conduct a workshop on how to formulate a question paper
4. It is better not to go for question bank in the first itself, better have an external set the question paper, build credibility and then switch over to the system of question bank. 
5. The whole process of valuation is finished within 15 days after the  last exam. Only then, we get the 80 marks from NAAC in this criteria.
6. For degree paper valuation, it is camp valuation with one chief and 4 to 5 additionals. For PG, it is double valuation, both internal and external. If there is a difference of 10 marks, it goes to a third valuation and the average of the two highest marks will be the final marks. For PG, there is no revaluation but they can go for challenge valuation and there will be a fee of Rs.1000 for that and the marks they obtained in the challenge valuation will be the final marks. If there is a difference of more than 10% in the challenge valuation, the students will be paid back the 1000 rupees.
7. Maximum 5 marks is given as moderation and moderation will be given only if it is seen that with this mark, student will pass the paper. The 5 marks can be distributed across the papers. 
8. Principal has to give an affidavit that only 20 % of the syllabus has been changed to the university. If the university hasnt replied within a month, you can go ahead with syllabus revision. The syllabus has to be submitted before the month of October to the university for approval for it to be implemented in the next academic year.
9.University will prefer if only 20 % of the syllabus is revised but from the NAAC point of view, you will score more marks if the revision is more than 20%.
10. When you modify the syllabus, you should incorporate the Skill development, entrepreneurship and employability into it.
11. Board of Studies has to approve Value Added Courses and Add on courses 
12.You can introduce the Deanery System….Dean of Science, Dean of Commerce, Dean of Arts etc. St.Joseph Trichy and Layola College etc has this system.
13. We need Dean of Students Affair, Dean of Research etc
14. Research has a big weightage in NAAC, where 23 questions are research related whereas only 20 questions are there for teaching learning 
15. When you make academic plan, make Short term goals and Long Term Goals.
16. One goal can be to increase the number of students from 2000 to 3000 to 4000 by introducing 10 new courses. We need to focus on vertical and horizontal growth.
17. We need the following policies:
1.Admission Policy-Same as university norms but make elaborate prospectus for each course and for add on and value added course.
2. Reservation Policy- same as that of university
3. Divyangan Policy- They admitted 23 students under this category in the management seats in the last five years and it benefited them a lot in NAAC and other accreditations. The policy for management seat should be included in the Admission policy.
4.Gender Equity Policy
5.Research Policy-the one given in our website has to be further elaborated. There should be a seed money from the management to further the research projects.Thevara gives around 50,000 for minor projects and raises this fund from the institutional overheads from projects written by faculty. They give an incentive of 2000 Rs for publication in scopus indexed journals and if you publish in the CARE list, around 1000 Rs.
6. Consultancy Policy
There should be a consultancy fund set up and the faculty should contribute to it. In thevara, it is 70(for the resource person and 30 for the college, the college will encourage them by giving them On Duty certificate to them, so, both will benefit).
7.Research Ethics Committee
8.Waste Management Policy
9. Energy Policy
10. Environment Policy
11. Infrastructure Maintenance Policy- this policy has to be elaborate one
12.IT Policy
13. Green Policy
18. We need to do
1.    Energy Audit
2.    Environment Audit
3.    Gender Audit (Dr.Sheeba from Kalady University and Dr.Asha from the communications department did a 3 day audit for thevara)
4.    Green Audit
19. They have a policy that No student will go without food in their campus. They have also made 40 hours of social service mandatory for students.
20. What are the welfare measures given for teachers and other non teaching staff by the management is very important and should be incorporated in the HR policy.
21. After being autonomous, the demand ration for a seat has become 1:19 in thevara.
22. Student exchange programmes-students from Afghanistan is coming now to Thevara
