It is a self-financing institute located in an Urban Area affiliated to Mangalore University and approved by the All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE), New Delhi in 1994. The AICTE has accorded extension of the approval to the Institute for 2006-07 with an intake of 90 vide letter No.440/41-6/ET(HM)/96 dated:23-6-2006 subject to rectification of deficiencies pointed out in the letter. Starting with an intake of 11 students in 1992, the Institute has a total strength of 304 students in 2006-07.

The Institute offers one UG Programme (Bachelor of Hotel Management-BHM), two Certificate Courses (Food Production & Food and Beverage Service) and one Diploma Course in Hospitality Management. The UG programme is of four years duration with semester system introduced from academic year 2006-07. The Certificate Courses and Diploma Course are offered by the Institute, without any affiliation and approval from the Parent University and the AICTE. The Diploma Course is recognized by the Educational Institute of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (EI-AH&LA), Orlando, USA. The AICTE has informed the Institute to discontinue the diploma programme with immediate effect. The Institute has yet to take a decision on this.

There are 15 full-time and 5 part-time teachers for conducting all academic programmes offered by the Institute. The total number of students enrolled during 2005-06 was 90, of which 67 students were from states other than Karnataka.

The Institute is attached to Hotel Pentagon and houses the office, Principal's room, 8 classrooms, 6 laboratories, library with internet facility, computer laboratory, a conference room and separate locker room facilities for boys and girls.

The Management has procured through Deeds of Sales of 12-12-05 and 16-1-06, 5.23 acres of land for the Institute, at a location which is around 4 kilometers away from the present location.

The Sarosh Institute of Hotel Administration has volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted the Self Study Report to NAAC on 28th February, 2006. A Peer Team was constituted by the Council to visit the Institution and validate the contents of the Self Study Report. The Peer Team consisted of Dr. Chandrakant Kokate, Former Vice-Chancellor, Kakatiya University, Warangal, Andhra Pradesh as Chairperson; Prof (Ms.) Shobha Anand Udipi, Professor and Director, Department of Post Graduate Studies and Research in Home Science, S.N.D.T. Women's University, Mumbai, Maharashtra and Mr. Roque D'Cruz, Principal, Institute of Hotel Management, Catering Technology and Applied Nutrition, Goa as Members; and Mr. B. S. Ponmudiraj, Assistant Advisor, NAAC as the Coordinator for the visit. The Peer Team visited the Institution on 24th and 25th July 2006.

The Peer Team carefully studied and analyzed the Self-Study Report submitted by the Institute. During the institutional visit, the Peer Team went through all the relevant documents, visited various departments and the facilities and interacted with different constituents of the Institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and other facilities of the Institution were visited and assessed. The Peer Team also interacted at length with the Management, Principal, Faculty, Students, Non-teaching Staff, Parents and Alumni of the Institution. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, the Peer Team has taken up the assessment and accreditation of the Institute. The observations of the team are recorded in the following sections of the Report.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The Mission of the Institute is to 'Develop Ladies and Gentlemen with attitudes, behaviour, values, skills and competencies expected from global service providers, while providing hospitality education'. The programmes of study pursued at the Institute are aimed at developing competencies which will enable the students to operate efficiently and effectively at supervisory and executive levels in the field of hotel management.

The Institute conducts four years Degree Course in Bachelor of Hotel Management (BHM), One-year Certificate Course in Food Production, One-year Certificate Course in Food & Beverage Service and Two-year Diploma in Hospitality Management. The Institute has established linkage with Educational Institute of the American Hotel & Lodging Association (EI-AH&LA), Orlando, USA for conducting Diploma in Hospitality Management.

The Curriculum for the Degree Course has 7 subjects taught in each of the four years of the Course. From academic year 2006-07, the Annual pattern of the course has been replaced by the Semester system. The industrial training component is not specified in the Curriculum. The subjects like Research Methodology and Research Project do not feature in the syllabus. Application of computers is included in the Third Year level whereas, it would be beneficial if the same is included at the First Year level itself as Computer is an integral part for all day-to-day working.

The subject of Hygiene and Sanitation could be included in the subject of Nutrition and Food Science. Inclusion of subjects such as Food and Beverage Management, Facility Planning, Research Methodology and Research Projects would give greater impetus to the Course.

There are four core subjects in the Hotel Management Curriculum which are Food Production, Food and Beverage Service, Front Office and Accommodation Operation. The subjects of Front Office and Accommodation Operation are not taught in the Third and Fourth Year which limits the entry of the students to only 2 departments after they pass out i.e. Food Production & Food and Beverage Service.

Overall, it has been observed that the Institute gives a great deal of thrust on Management subjects and includes Environmental Studies and Behavioural Sciences in the Curriculum which are of importance for the overall development of the students. It has also been observed that a great deal of emphasis is laid on - On-the-Job-Training, in order to enrich the students' learning ability.

The Principal of the Institute was the Chairperson of Board of Studies in the University. The teachers are actively involved in Curriculum designing of the Courses.

Criterion II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Admission to the various courses is done through interviews in accordance with the policies of the Management.

A great deal of effort is put into improving the English language ability of those students who gained less than 50 percent in the language test conducted by the Institute. Class tests are conducted every month which ensures that the students are well prepared. Remedial Coaching classes are conducted for weak students. The students are given project work in the last year of the course.

The teaching of various programmes is monitored by a disciplined cadre of teachers (14 full-time and 5 Part-time) ably supervised by the Principal. The teachers maintain a diary to ensure that the lesson plan has been followed. However, it would be of great assistance to the teachers if detailed individual lesson plans are made subject-wise/semester-wise. The audio-visual aids are available for effective teaching in the class rooms.

The vigilance is maintained regarding the attendance of the students and reports are generated monthly. The parents of the students are given the feedback regarding academic performance of their wards. Theme dinners and practical exposure assist the students in assimilitating and implementing the theory inputs.

The teaching output would be enriched if the faculty is sent for more short term programmes.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
