Enhancing the capabilities of technical education in India


There are three key institutional outputs from the TEQIP-II Good Governance Programme:

  1. Governance Self-Review
  2. Governance Development Plan
  3. Governance Guidelines Document

More than 160 institutions have prepared Governance Self-Reviews. A number of institutions have also prepared an initial Governance Development Plan/Priorities.

The experiences of TEQIP institutions have been incorporated into the resources of and the Good Governance Programme sections of the website.

Now the focus is on institutions implementing good governance through the documenting of their institutional governance processes and practices in a Governance Guidelines Document. BVBCET, Hubli, as a pilot institution, has completed all three stages of the good governance programme. The principal, Dr Shettar, shares his experience of the process and its relevance in his PPT presentation to institutions in Andhra Pradesh.

The Expert Advisory Group (EAG) has provided written feedback to 142 institutions on self-reviews so far, on behalf of the NPIU. The EAG generic interim progress reports are available on the website:


Our resources section holds a range of resources aimed at governing body members, institutional leaders and managers, state and national leaders, Mentors and Performance Auditors and others interested in governance, leadership and management synergies.
