Kuwait demands NBA approval of degrees

National Edu News

The Ministry of Human Resources Development has sent a list of premier engineering institutes in the country to Kuwait authorities where thousands of Indian engineers are threatened with job losses after Kuwait decided to recognize degrees only if India’s National Board of Accreditation (NBA) approved of the courses they studied. The Public Authority for Manpower, a government body in Kuwait, had asked the Labour Department to not give work permits to expatriate engineers unless they got no-objection certificates from the Kuwait Engineers Society. For India, engineers were to be issued no-objection certificates only if the course had been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). A high-level Indian delegation which had taken up the issue, decided to send them lists of ‘Non-NBA premier institute’ and ‘Institutes of National Importance’ which has been sent to the Indian Embassy in Kuwait for onward submission to Kuwait authorities. The IITs, IISc and JU have never taken accreditation from the NBA for their engineering courses. Many of the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are yet to take accreditation for their B Tech courses.
