India has one of the largest and diverse education systems in the world. Privatization, widespread expansion, increased autonomy and introduction of Programmes in new and emerging areas have improved access to higher education. At the same time, it has also led to widespread concern on the quality and relevance of the higher education. To address these concerns, the National Policy on Education (NPE, 1986) and the Programme of Action (PoA, 1992) spelt out strategic plans for the policies, advocated the establishment of an independent National accreditation agency. Consequently, the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) was established in 1994 as an autonomous institution of the University Grants Commission (UGC) with its Head Quarter in Bengaluru. The mandate of NAAC as reflected in its vision statement is in making quality assurance an integral part of the functioning of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs).
The NAAC functions through its General Council (GC) and Executive Committee (EC) comprising educational administrators, policy makers and senior academicians from a cross-section of Indian higher education system. The Chairperson of the UGC is the President of the GC of the NAAC, the Chairperson of the EC is an eminent academician nominated by the President of GC (NAAC). The Director is the academic and administrative head of NAAC and is the member-secretary of both the GC and the EC. In addition to the statutory bodies that steer its policies and core staff to support its activities NAAC is advised by the advisory and consultative committees constituted from time to time.

Swami Vivekananda quotes,
“All power is within you, you can do anything and everything…”
India is one of the youngest countries in the world. Youth plays a crucial and substantial role in the development of our nation. The growing number of youth in rural India requires the right educational infrastructure to develop skills and opportunities to get employed and to become entrepreneurs. Youth are seen as promising resources of manpower for development. The new mantra of the day is ‘Young India - New India’ and implies that the new India is firmly on the shoulders of the youth. If the youth of the nation is put on the right track to unleash their potential, the nation will flourish.
RVS IMS, mostly educating the rural youth, intends to contribute to nation-building by grooming them holistically, empowering them as proficient performers, and enabling them as professionals and entrepreneurs through various measures and activities initiated during the course of study.

Soft skills are character traits and interpersonal skills that characterise a person’s relationships with other people. In the workplace, soft skills are considered to be a complement to hard skills, which refer to a person’s knowledge and occupational skills.
A soft skill is a personal attribute that supports situational awareness and enhances an individual's ability to get a job done. The term soft skill is often used as a synonym for people skills or emotional intelligence. Unlike hard skills, which describe a person's technical ability to perform a specifically-defined task, soft skills are broadly applicable across job titles and industries. It's often said that while hard skills might get someone an interview, soft skills will help that person get and keep the job.
RVS Institute of Management Studies, keeping the above in view, enables various sessions to better students’ soft skills, help them get a bright career start being corporate ready and shape them as better future leaders. In this initiative, regular training sessions are conducted on,
Life skills are abilities for adaptive and positive behavior that enable humans to deal effectively with the demands and challenges of life. In other words, ‘Life Skills’ refers to the skills you need to make the most out of life. Any skill that is useful in your life can be considered a life skill.
They include creativity, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, the ability to communicate and collaborate, along with personal and social responsibility that contribute to good citizenship – all essential skills for success in life, for healthy societies and for employable individuals.

RVS Institute of Management Studies since its inception in 2008, has been a self-financing institution and hence has to generate its own resources to meet out the expenditure on various items and also for further investments on assets for expansion.Mobilization of funds
The funds are mobilized from tuition fees, hostel fees, and other fees. The income from such sources vary from year to year depending on the admissions. As an institution located in a Tier 2 city, the scope for generating funds through other sources like research, consultancy, etc is limited. For almost all the MoU partners, any consulting work carried out is obligatory in nature. In spite of this disadvantage, the institution explores alternative ways to generate funds through research and consultancy, which has begun to see results.
Since resources are limited and requirements are huge, careful rationing of funds for various purposes is done with due diligence.
An annual budget is prepared by the Director and submitted to the CEO. The budget is scrutinized by the CEO and the Governing Council for fund allocation.Optimum Utilization of funds
The CEO monitors the utilization of funds for both recurring and non-recurring expenses such as salary, electricity, consumables, maintenance, etc. Salary for teaching and non-teaching staff is one of the major items of expenditure. Staff and student welfare expenditures are given priority. Library and computer center are areas which require constant attention and financial support. Some of the items of recurring expenses are salaries for housekeeping, security, industrial visits, promotional activities expenditure, the conduct of programs, National & International visits for students, etc.
Quotations are sought from suppliers for the purchase of books, journals, equipment, computers, etc. The quotations are scrutinized based on the parameters of the brand, quality , and price before the decision is made. Care is taken to see that the expenditure lies within the estimated budget. In cases where the expenditure is exceeded, management permission is sought.Financial Audits
The financial statements are audited by internal auditors and submitted to the management from time to time. A qualified Chartered Accountant also reviews the accounts/entries on a quarterly basis. Suggestions/objections, if any, raised by the Chartered Accountant are discussed with the management for necessary action. Every year the accounts are further reviewed and finalized by external auditors and audited financial statements are prepared and submitted to the management. Based on this report the budget for the next academic year is prepared effectively. The external audit helps the management to understand the financial requirements and the suitable actions are taken to utilize the fund mobilized through various sources.
