Media coverage of Kalyan Mahavidyalaya, Durg, Chhattisgarh
NAAC report of Kalyan MahavidyalayaSECTION I
Kalyan Mahavidyalaya was established in the year 1963 by the Chhattisgarh Kalyan Samiti, a registered society with the main object of providing higher education to the employees of Bhilai Steel Plant whose promotion was delayed due to lack of degree. Initially, Samiti started the college as a night college to benefit the employees and as the success rate in the examination increased and the popularity of the college grew, in 1971 it was made into a full fledged Arts and Commerce day college. The Science courses were introduced in 1974.
The Kalyan Mahavidyalaya is situated on a 13 acre land located in an urban setting in the 7th sector of Bhilai which is 40 Km away from Raipur. The college is affiliated to Pt. Ravi Shankar Shukla University, Raipur.
The college offers UG and PG courses in Arts, Science and Commerce Faculties. While the PG courses are having an autonomous status, the UG courses are governed by the regulations of the University. The college is recognized under 2f of University Grants commission, New Delhi and is covered under Grant-in-aid scheme of the Government of Chhattisgarh. It is receiving 80% of the salary component by way of grants.
Kalyan Mahavidyala, Bhilai offered to get itself assessed and accredited by the NAAC. Accordingly the college submitted its self study Report to the NAAC which in turn appointed the following Peer Team for on the spot visit to the college
Prof. S. Ravichandra Reddy
Professor, Bangalore Univesity, Bangalore (Chairman & Co-ordinator)
Smt. Bandana Chatterji
Former Principal, Shri. Shikshaytan College, Kolkata (Member)
Prof. P.K. Ahuja
Retired Principal, IASE, Bhopal
The team went through the self-study report along with all the Annexure and also the documents submitted by the college during the Team's visit on September 20th, 21st and 22nd, 2004. The peer Team held discussions at length with the Principal, Governing body, Faculty, Non-Teaching Staff, Students, Parents and Alumni. The team went round all the teaching departments, offices and facilities in the college. On the basis of the documentary evidences made available and also on discussions and observations, the team hereby submits the report under the seven criterion laid down by the NAAC.
Criterion I: Curricular Apspects
Chhattisgarh Kalyan Samiti, Bhilai established the Kalyan Mahavidyalaya at Bhilai in 1963. The Mahavidyalaya started in a school building located at Bhilai Nagar and offered LL.B. course. Subsequently, the Samiti procured 13 acre of land in the 7th sector of Bhilai Nagar, constructed a building and started a full fledged college for Arts and Commerce in 1971. The mission of establishment of the college was to provide higher education to the employees of Bhilai Steel Plant. Since its inception, the college has grown and expanded in diverse fields. At the time of establishment B.A. and B.Com. degree programme options were offered. B.A. degree was offered with English, Hindi, Sanskrit Economics, Political Science and History subjects, while B.Com degree was offered with commerce subject only. In 1973, the college introduced Sociology and Political science subjects in B.A. degree. Science stream was initiated in 1974 with the establishment of B.Sc. degree in Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Mathematics as subjects. During the same year, the college also started the PG course in History. In 1981, in Arts faculty PG course was established, while PG course in Science subjects were initiated in 1986. Considering the job opportunities, in 1999 the college introduced Electronics and Computer science subjects both at UG and PG levels.
At present, the college provides 8 programme options in UG and 5 programme options in P.G. of Arts Faculty, 8 programme options (including Electronic Equipment Maintenance) in UG and 7 programmes options in PG of Science faculty and one programme option each in Commerce faculty. The college has communicative English and Insurance as a vocational courses in the Arts Faculty and received permission to introduce B. Lib science at the UG level.
Besides these UG and PG courses, the college also offers PG diploma courses in Accounts and Financial management, Marketing management, Materials management and Entrepreneurship and Human relations in Commerce faculty. Diploma courses were offered in Information Technology and Computer application by the Electronics department. However, due to lack of adequate student strength, the college has temporarily discontinued the latter two courses. Similarly, PG course in Sociology is also not being offered this year due to inadequate student strength.
The college has been granted Autonomous status by University grants commission for running the PG courses and is approved by the Chattisgarh State Government. The UG courses are covered under the Grant-in-aid scheme of Chattisgarh government. The college is affiliated to Pandit Ravishankar Shukla University, Raipur. The PG courses and the certificate courses are self financed. Both UG and PG courses are in annual mode.
There is no scope for horizontal mobility. However, at the time of admission, students have the freedom to opt for change of subjects within a stipulated time period.
At the UG level, the courses are designed by the Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University, with the result the college does not have any significant role in restructuring the curriculum. The teachers who are members of BOS, Faculty and/or Academic Council have been playing an important role in updating of the syllabus and getting the recommendations of BOS approved in the bodies of the University.
In regard to PG courses, the college being autonomous has the freedom to design the syllabus in the different subjects. Each subject at the PG level has a Board of Studies and the Head of the Department is the Chairman of the BOS. It designs the curriculum and after approval by the University is offered to the students. Currently, the college has adopted the syllabus designed by UGC for PG courses with a modification of 20 %.
Though the college is autonomous at the PG level, it cannot introduce any kind of new programme of its own both at UG and PG levels unless permitted by the Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University. Under the present affiliating system, the college requires one year to implement a new programme. Inter disciplinary/multidisciplinary approach is not evident in the programme options. However, the component of inter disciplinary approach is present to the extent that certain subjects like Electronics, Botany, Zoology and Commerce have inter disciplinary topics in the syllabus.
Criterion II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The students are admitted to the UG courses on a first come first serve basis. During admissions, the college follows the minimum requirement of marks and Government norms during the admissions.
At the PG level, as the seats are limited, the Admission committee prepares the merit list and candidates are selected based on the merit list.
After admission, the students at UG and PG level are continuously exposed to curricular and extracurricular activities. These include classroom lectures, practical component in Science subjects, home assignments, seminars, group discussions, study tours and visit to local industries. Besides, in PG courses, the students are involved in project work in the final year.
Bridge courses are not available in the college. In the Arts subjects, the medium of instruction is in Hindi while in Science subjects, though the medium of instruction is in English, the teachers also use Hindi as an instruction medium.
Tutorials are not practiced for slow learners. In certain departments, supplementary coaching is carried out at one to one basis. Similarly, support for advanced learners is not forthcoming. The unit cost of education for under graduate courses for the year 2003-2004 is Rs. 7089/- (including salary component) while for PG courses it has been Rs. 6397/-.
The teaching both in UG and PG courses is carried out in accordance with the teaching plan prepared by the teachers at the commencement of every session. Whenever required, teachers take extra lectures after regular classes to complete the syllabus well before the commencement of the end examinations. Head of each department review the teaching programme from time to time.
Teachers follow conventional lecture method. At PG level, in majority of the departments, overhead project is used as a teaching aid and the students are encouraged to use the same during seminars. Besides, in Botany, Physics, Chemistry and Zoology, Commerce and History teaching aids such as models, charts, and maps are used. The department of English offers Functional English as vocational subject and uses cassette player, TV and mike to teach phonology.
The teachers are recruited according to the rules of the University and Government rules. The Principal and the management can appoint temporary teachers purely on adhoc basis. While the salaries of the regular teachers in UG and PG courses are met by the grants of the Government, the management bears the expenses of salaries of temporary teachers. Currently, the college has 46 regular posts of which only 32 have been filled. Due to pending of writ petition in the High court, the college is unable to make regular appointments. As result, there is a dearth of regular teachers. The ratio of regular teachers to temporary teachers is 33:55, while the ratio of regular teachers to non-teaching staff is 33:38. Majority of the teachers are yet to clear the NET. The temporary teachers are given a fixed salary ranging from Rs. 2000/- to Rs. 3500/-.
Many regular teachers of the college have been the Chairpersons and or members of BOS in their respective subjects at UG level. Since the PG courses have autonomous status, the Head of the department of each subject is the Chairperson of the BOS. Besides two teachers of the Department, the University nominee also represents the BOS. Regular teachers in each department with necessary qualifications have been serving as members of BOE, paper setters and valuers.
The college conducts tests and preparatory examination prior to final or annual examinations. While the dates of examinations for the University announces UG courses, the dates for P.G. examination one decided by the college.
At the PG level, the college has the autonomous status in the conduct of examinations. The college has established an examination section and one teacher has been given additional charge as Controller of examination. Few deputies and administrative staff assist the teacher. Conduct of PG examination, valuation and declaration of result is the sole responsibility of the Controller of examinations of the college. The marks cards are issued by the college and are attested by the University administrator. The Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University issues the Degree certificate. Currently the college follows door evaluation in PG courses. The success rate of students during 2003-2004 at the UG level is 68 % in Arts, 69 % in Commerce and Science faculties. At the PG level, the success rate has been 63 % in Arts, 68 % in Commerce and 65 % in Science faculties. At the PG level, the college has been procuring ranks.
The college does not practice the self-appraisal method of teachers. Following the NAAC format it has just introduced evaluation method of teachers by the wards. However, there is no formal evaluation method of teachers by the students.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Evaluation
Kalyan Mahavidyala has been in existence since 1963. Among the 85 faculty members, 28 have Ph. D degree, 4 have M.Phil and 53 have PG qualification. Several teachers have participated in refresher and orientation courses. Though the college is offering PG courses, the research culture amongst the teachers is evident only in few departments. The PG students are exposed to research culture by involvement through dissertation work in the final year. In the Mathematics department, the Head of the department has made considerable contributions in the field and has published several papers in national and international journals of repute. Financial support has been received from UGC to develop computer laboratory in the Department. Similarly, the Head of the Electronics department has also contributed considerably in research and has been able to receive developmental grant for infrastructure facilities. The Department has submitted application for FIST. In the past, several teachers have minor research grants from funding bodies but during the last 5 years, the receipt of financial support towards research is nil. Several teachers have been writing books in their field in Hindi and publishing popular articles in news papers and lay journals. The college has been recognized as a research centre of Pt. Ravishankar Shukla University in the subjects Hindi, English, Mathematics, Commerce, Electronics and Chemistry. So far 25 students have been awarded Ph.D degree from the college. A research magazine called 'Chhattisgarh Vivek' is published by the Kalyan Study Analysis and Research Centre of the college. Teachers of the college to other colleges can publish their articles in the magazine. The magazine has contributed to research publication of the teachers.
The teachers involved in research are yet to provide consultancy services. As a result linkages with institutes and industries are not forthcoming.
The college promotes the students to participate in extension activities through NCC and NSS units. The college has established a separate wing in NCC for girls and boys and one teacher each has been put in charge of these units In NCC, both boys and girls have achieved recognition both at state and national levels. Many have won distinction in riffle shooting and have participated in RD parades at Delhi and in camps. Both NCC and NSS units have under taken a number of community development programmes. Blood donation camps, AIDS and Environment awareness, medical camps, tree plantation and adult literacy programmes have been organized involving NCC and NSS students. The NSS volunteers also maintain the cleanliness of the campus.
The Peer team appreciates the good work by the teachers and students in/done extension activities. However, it is desirable to encourage the teachers to;
Apply for financial support from other funding agencies of the country
Since considerable vacant land is available, the college may put efforts for the establishment of research laboratories.
Encourage the temporary teachers to register for Ph.D degree on part time basis
Avail career development facilities of UGC
Publish papers in refereed journals.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The Collage has a campus covering 13 acres of land located in the heart of the town. It possesses the physical facilities for running the on going academic programmes. Since, the building occupies only 3 acres of land, expansion of infrastructure in line with academic growth is possible. There is optimum use of infrastructure. UG and PG classes in BA/B.Sc are held in the morning (07.30 am to 01.00 pm), while B.Com and M.Com classes are held in the afternoon (01.00 to 05.00 pm). The Diploma courses in the management are conducted from 06.00 pm in the evening.
Library facilities are available for 207 working days, for 8 hours daily. The Library has 46,763 books for 2,927 students but of these 15,000 PG level books are kept in the respective departmental libraries for the benefit of PG students only. The ratio is reasonably adequate. There are 30 journals for 17 departments maintained in the respective departments. But some of the Arts departments do not subscribe to any journal. The Library is in the process of computerization; it has competed accession by computer. But it appears that the Library does not provide computer, Internet and reprographic facilities to students. Science the college library caters only to UG students, mostly text books are in the library. The reading room facility of the library is limited. It does not have book bank facility or linkages with other libraries. There is central computer facility maintained in the Electronics Department. However there is only one Xerox machines available in the college.
The College has a health center which is open during evening hours and every Saturday. Free medical services and medicines are provided. But it appears that medical check up of students is not compulsory; nor are health records maintained. There is no provision for health insurance. The health centre primarily caters to the poorer section of the society
Classrooms are reasonably well lighted and spacious. The science departments have separate laboratories for UG and PG courses. However, in some of the laboratories require additional space for effective implementation of practical programme. Theory classes are also held in separate classes.
The College has a large Auditorium. In addition, the Electronics department has also a seminar hall with facilities. The Quadrangle of the college is used for conducting activities of students and college day functions.
A separate sports room is available with basic sports materials. The college has won several championships in handball and students have represented in the University cricket, hockey and handball teams both at zonal and national level.
Sports activities can be considered as a strong point of the college. This is possible as the College provides ground (10 acres) for games, financial support in the form of full free ships to students who represent the College in sports meets at the University, State and national levels. Consequently, student's participation in spots at all levels is encouraging. The improvement and maintenance of existing sports ground would certainly attract many more students in the events.
A canteen is located in the premises of the college and is run by a private contractor. The food beverages are sold at low cost. Adjacent to the canteen, the Samiti is constructing a building for the Law College which is nearing completion.
The college has a welfare Programme for its constituents. These include:( i) group insurance for students, faculty and staff; (ii) Kalyan kosh from which the members (teaching and non-teaching staff) can take loans and enjoy other facilities; and (iii) a welfare Programme named Sadasys, Sahayata Yojana. The nature of the last mentioned Programme is not clear. The college has not established any hostel facility for boys and girls.
Criterion V: Student support and Progression
The college publishes prospectus giving all the details required for the students at the time of admission. Financial aid is provided to need students under the provision of Chattisgarh Government for SC, ST and handicapped students. The students of the College are from Chattisgarh with only a few from outside the sate. The pass percentage during 2003-2004 is 68% in BA, 69% in B.Sc.and B.Com, 63% in MA, 65% in M.Sc. and 66% in M.Com. respectively. The drop out rate is reasonably low. Several department promote wall magazines in there respective subject. Common room is available for girl students. As the college is not able to maintain contact with past students, their progression and achievements are no known.
There is very limited academic counseling except at the time of admission and through the Principal's address and speeches by teachers. There is no career counseling nor is there any employment cell or placement officer. In spite of this, 30 students were reportedly employed through placement agencies last year. Career counseling and employment cell are essential features of PG institutions. Hence, this needs to be considered with a sense of urgency.
There is an Alumni Association, but its activities need to be expanded. Its contribution to college revenue or to its betterment need be highlighted.
Criterion VI: Organization and Management
The College is government aided and autonomous college, affiliated to Ravishankar Shukla University, But in spite of autonomy, rules of the Government is terms of recruitment and service are applicable to the staff and its employees. For the teachers, UGC norms are applicable. Autonomy of the college is rather limited to the PG level in the forming of the syllabus and conduct of examination and appointment of examiner.
The organization in terms of management of the college comprises the Principal, Governing body (meeting twice a year), Academic Council, Board of Studies, Finance and Planning Committees. Etc. On all academic matters, Academic council is the main policy making body which approve decision of the Board of Studies, Planning Committee etc. The Principal is the main executive officer whose powers are governed by the Statute 28 of the University. There is a Teacher's Council which meets quarterly, and a Teaching Association which meets as required. Teacher council deals with academic improvement and the Association with the interest of teachers. Monthly meetings are held between the Principal, Chairmen of the Governing body and the Faculty Heads. This seems to be a positive mechanism for coordination between administrative and academic policies. Teacher's participation is ensured in the different academic bodies such as Academic council, BOS and the committees like the ones for admission, examination, finance and building, Participation by other constituents is not indicated. The Principal is the major coordinator between the administrative and academic segments of the college.
The college adopts the academic calendar prepared by the state government and the University with minor modification. This indicates that in spite of is autonomy, the college operates within the framework developed by the Government and the University. This is also applicable to the reservation policy followed by the college.
The major sources of revenue are grants from the State Government and UGC and the self-financing courses of the college. The budget seems to be balanced. A deficit budget has been projected for 2004-2005.
The organization and management seem to be uncomplicated with internal monitoring mechanism and the principal as the major coordinator. Its provides for teacher participation, But there is little opportunity for participation by students a non-teaching staff. The role of the GB is not clear.
Formal Grievance redressal cell for the benefit of the teaching and not-teaching staff is yet to be established. For the present, the teachers and no- teaching staff may approach the Principal to solve their grievances and problems. The college is yet to establish Anti Sexual Harassment Committee. However, the college has an Anti ragging committee for the benefit of girls.
There is no development scheme for administrative staff; welfare schemes are also limited to loans and possibly free medical advice. Grievance redressal cell is also absent. It is not clear if there is internal or external audit or both.
Criterion VII: Healthy practices
The college over the years has attempted to evolve certain practices which would contribute to the health of the college.
Autonomy has provided the opportunity to the college for expansion of the range of its courses. Besides the traditional subjects, it has introduced Science Degree Courses in Electronics, PG diploma course (one year) in management; vocational courses such as EEM (Electronics Equipment Maintenance, Communicative English and Insurance). The Mathematics Departments provides compulsory Computer Application course for other PG science students. Awareness of the importance of value orientation in education led to the formation of a special centre for Research and study in 2000 known as KALYAN STUDY ANALYSIS AND RESEARCH CENTRE. Its activities range from seminar workshop, publication of research magazine, yoga and naturopathy courses. The programmes organized between 2002-04 were Personality Development, positive thinking, Art of Living classes, Human Rights and other value based education. Besides the active role of NSS students in social services through Blood Donation camps, improvement of village and slums, serving the health center, becomes a model of value education in practice.
Civic responsibilities among students are inculcated through NCC activities and sports. Programmes such as Pulse Polio Campaign, Aids Awareness develop the sense of responsibility among students. In all these activities teachers guide the students.
Personality Development of students is encouraged through seminar presentation, research projects at the PG level, For UG students personality development chasses are arranged.
The active role on the NCC, NSS and Kalyan Sodh Centre have created and environment in the college which helps in value orientation and civic awareness. But possibly the activities are confined to limited number of student. The majority of students need the confidence to express there personality.
SECTION - II
The college established in 1963 having merely 100 students on roll has grown creditably to accommodate 2092 students at UG level and 156 students at PG level thus reflecting the spread of higher education to the children of this industrial town. The curriculum prescribed by the University at the UG level in Arts, Science and Commerce subjects is followed in letter and spirit. Being autonomous at the PG level, the college is adhering to the calendar of events and the examinations are conducted as per the scheduled dates. The college is not only making higher education available to the wards in this area, it has largely succeed in generating amongst the boys and girls a desire for education in more and more subjects and ambition to build a career in diverse fields.
In the course of interaction with the students and alumni and parents the peer team came across demands for starting new subjects and for more facilities for career guidance in the college.
Despite the lack of regular permanent teachers, the college with the assistance of a large number of temporary faculty is carrying with teaching and learning programme to the best. However, in the long run, the low salaries provided to the temporary teachers may become a hindrance amongst these teachers to put their best efforts in teaching.
Though the teaching methodology amongst the teachers continues to be primarily based on lecture method, with the availability of facilities, there is a strong realization amongst the teaching staff to shift for modern methodology of teaching and also keenness to learn and to handle teaching instruments. The Functional English course offered by the English department is useful to the students coming largely from Hindi speaking areas. However, strengthening of the facilities and extending the benefit to both UG and PG students in all the departments of the college would go a long way to improve the communication skill amongst the students.
Though the Library both in the college and at the Departments have books, but requires modernization in terms of books and facilities.
Few teachers are quite active in research and publications in national and international journals of repute. These are evidences of a good work being done by a small group of teachers.
The continuous performance of students in sports and NCC is praiseworthy. It is hoped that the managing committee of the College shall soon commence the construction work of Gymnasium and improve the facilities in the play ground.
The college has effectively conducted the examinations of PG courses. However, regular appointment of a Controller of examination and adequate regular staff members would certainly raise the standard of conduct of PG examinations.
The College despite having constraints in finances and facilities is trying to function effectively and impart quality education the wards of this region.
The Peer Team makes the following suggestions for the consideration of the College authorities with a view to implementation in order to provide quality education of high standard.
Out of 85 teachers, all the temporary teachers are working on consolidated salary ranging between Rs. 2000/- and 3500/- only. It is desirable that the teachers are paid proper emoluments so that they are motivated to carry out effective teaching and also take up research and project work with enthusism. This may also help in benefiting the PG students in procuring higher knowledge in the field as also provide elevation of standard and career advancement to teachers.
There should be provision for tutorials so that close interaction between and students be achieved and slow learners are benefited.
Since the number of students at the under graduate level is large, there is a need to divide the students into sections so as to cater to the needs of students who wish to study through English medium.
There is a need to add latest additions and newer books in the library as per requirement of the students. The students should be allowed to have access to books.
Monthly tests may be organized.
Provision of career counselling may be made.
On campus interviews may be organized for PG students.
A cooperative store managed by the students may be of great help and support to them to practice 'Earn while Learn scheme'.
The students may organize more Socio-Cultural activities.
The existing toilet facilities (particularly for girls) may be improved.
Telephone facility (PCO) may be provided in the college canteen.
Expert and specialists may be invited for dialogue with students.
Hostel facility may be provided to encourage the students from far off regions to opt for this college.
Special programme for slow learners / gifted students may be arranged after college hours.
The college should make efforts to establish 'strong room' in the examination section.
The members of the Peer Team would like to place on record their sincere appreciation and thanks to the Principal, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, parents of the students and alumni for their support and assistance during the visit of NAAC Peer Team.
