Yes every degree is required to be credited from UGC and NAAC system. This way they make sure that the education that students get is of that specific level and standard.

In case of professional courses, industrial knowledge and the hands on is given. In case of normal courses, no hands on and practical knowledge is served. For some normal courses you may get practicals but not the industrial exposure. This is one reason you can see that professional courses are harder compared to normal courses.

Engineering, Medical, Pharmacy, ITI are some of the places where you can find professional courses. Most of the B.SC, B.COM and B.arts on the other hand are normal degrees. It's hard to get yourself the industrial exposure in those normal courses.
