difference between an autonomous and non-autonomous college

Colleges that receive a score of 3.51 or higher on a scale of 0 to 4, or colleges accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA) in three or more programmes with scores of 750 or more in each programme, are automatically eligible for autonomy, according to the rules and standards of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC). Moreover, an autonomous college can design and control its curriculum and academic transactions.
