It has also selected nine other colleges in a bid to select the ten best colleges of the State. The State has now over 200 colleges recognized by the University Grants Commission (UGC). The National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) has accredited about 191 colleges of the State.

The list of these colleges has been carried by the June, 2006 issue of the magazine, which has hit the stands today.

Talking to this newspaper here today, Suresh Ranjan Goduka, editor of the Jeevan said that they conducted a survey taking the colleges which secured 75 per cent or above credit points in the NAAC assessment.
