India's higher education system is the third largest in the world. According to the latest report on the All India Survey on Higher Education (AISHE), number of educational institutions are over whelming. The quantitative flare up in higher education institutions has not been coordinated by the quality of the education they provide. Consistency reports on employability by various organizations exposed that there is a dearth of ‘Job Ready’ skills among the graduates and only very less per cent of them were employable. This made the researcher to ponder in a way that, “Is this situation is due to lack of competency of the teachers?”. Hence, the researcher conducted a study on evaluation of Teachers’ competency in Self-financing Arts and Science and Engineering Colleges of four districts in Coimbatore Region. The study used both the primary and secondary data. The primary data were collected with the help of questionnaire among the sample of 460 Students and 196 HODs. The primary data collected have been analysed by using Statistical Package for the Social Sciences (SPSS) software.
