  2. The body is formed to monitor institutional performance and quality assurance arrangements which should be, where possible and appropriate, benchmarked against other institutions.
  3. Governing body ensure compliance with the statutes, ordinances and provisions regulating their institution, including regulations by statutory bodies, such as UGC, as well as regulations laid out by the state government and affiliating university.

  5. The governing body should actively monitor that the Institution implements the requirements of state and national governments for reservations of seats and staff positions and provide required administrative to minority groups.
  6. The general principle of transparency of the governing body applies that students and staff of the institution should have appropriate access to information about the proceedings of the governing body. All sorts of agendas of meetings, draft minutes (if cleared by the chair) and the signed minutes of governing body meetings together with the papers considered at meetings should generally be available for inspection by staff and students. There may, however, be matters covered in standing orders where it is necessary to observe confidentiality. Such matters are likely to concern individuals or have commercial sensitivity.
