History[edit] NBA was established by the All India
Council of Technical Education (AICTE) in 1994 and operated as an autonomous body since 2010.[3] In 2014 it was granted a full membership status in the Washington Accord.[4] Programs accredited[edit] The NBA accredits programmes and not institutes. These include diplomas, undergraduate and postgraduate programs. Accredited fields include engineering & technology, management, pharmacy, architecture, applied arts and crafts, computer applications and hospitality and tourism management.[5] While accreditation is voluntary, in 2017 the AICTE announced that it will not provide approval for institutes which failed to accredit at least half of their programs.[6] References[edit]
