V E R S U S
State of Haryana ...Respondents
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAY TEWARI
Mr. Hari Om Attri, Advocate for the petitioner.
Mr. Harish Rathee, Sr. DAG, Haryana.
AJAY TEWARI J. (ORAL)
The petitioner who is a college Lecturer has challenged his transfer from Hisar to Tauru. In written statement, it has been brought out that right from the date of his appointment viz. 2002 till the date of the impugned transfer order 2006 he remained posted in the Govt. College, Hisar and Govt. College, Adampur which is just about 30 KM from Hisar and it was only after such a long stay at Hisar or nearby colleges the
petitioner was transferred to Govt. College, Tauru on administrative exigencies.
The only argument raised by learned counsel for the petitioner is that the petitioner is the sole technically qualified Lecturer who can teach post-graduate classes of Geographical Information System and Remote Sensing Technology and these courses are available only at Hisar.
However, it is to be noticed that no such grouse were raised by the petitioner during his tenure in the Govt. College, Adampur where also admittedly these courses/classes are not available. There is no allegation of mala fide.
In the circumstances, this petition is dismissed. No costs.

The college is able to initiate new programmes after the same is discussed with University and Government. The institution has recently introduced at under-graduate level Electronic Equipment Maintenance course which is job oriented. The students have flexibility to pursue academic programmes.
Since the curriculum is designed by the University Board and as such it in no way reflects any specific goals of the institution. The College is yet to have any mechanism to get student feed back on its teaching programmes. The College needs to evolve College industry neighbourhood networking. Various educational tours are organised for students to visit different parts of the country to get awareness of the socio-cultural set-up of the country.
Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The admission to various courses of study are done on the basis of previous academic record of student and no entrance test is conducted. The performance of students is regularly monitored through periodical tests and assignments. The student's progress is also monitored by five monthly tests in a year and house examination, which is conveyed to parents. The teacher learner interaction is further substantiated by a limited number of periodical tutorials. The faculty at the beginning of academic session fixes target to complete the courses. The syllabi is utilised according to annual system of teaching and during the academic session three house tests are conducted to assess the learners. The classroom instructions are supplemented by extension lectures, seminars, workshops, etc. The teaching in the College needs to be supplemented by communication technology gadgets. The average workload of a teacher is 24 periods per week in an academic calendar, which has 190 teaching days.

There is self-appraisal for assessment of teachers and the faculty performance is also viewed in terms of ACR's and student results. The good teachers lists are forwarded to the state government for conformant of best teacher award, which has been instituted recently in the State. The faculty needs to be exposed to more number of symposia, debates, seminars, etc to enhance the performance. There is a need for faculty improvement programmes to encourage teachers and the faculty may establish national or international academic linkages. Faculty in science and non-science subjects are need to be regular members of academic associations and societies at national or state level.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
During the last 50 years the College has expanded its infrastructural facilities in the form of creation of additional classrooms, new structures for new departments, auditorium, sports facilities, library with 83000 references, parking sheds and a girls hostel. The library needs automation. The library needs to be connected with other libraries to have effective networking of library facility. In order to strengthen library facility the college needs to facilitate Reprography, audio and video system, internet access etc for students and faculty. The institution has computer centre with 24 systems used for academic programmes. The huge stock of information technology gadgets available at the institution need to be optimally utilized as a central facility, besides academic input. At the college premises there is TATA INFOTECH, a private concern, to supplement information technology know-how to the people who would like to avail it of, and the same is available at a nominal fee. The institution has limited number of staff quarters for a few teachers and Principal.
The facilities for sports are 400 mts athletic track, hockey, football, handball, volleyball, kho-kho and basketball court. The College provides support system for games and financial incentive to needy sport students as incentive. The sports activity of the college is diversified. Students have easy access to sports equipments and play games at the campus premises round the calendar year.

The College maintains a good record of success rate. In case of batch I the success rate has been 77.65% and the drop out rate is 23%, while in case of the second batch the success rate is 88% and the drop out rate is 12% at undergraduate level.

Keeping in view the future plans of the College the Peer Team would suggest the following to the College to consider.
while the peer team appreciates the overall mission and goal of educational empowerment, the college needs to identify the specific objectives and make strategic plans to attain the same.
the College may explore the possibilities of few professional job-oriented courses at post-graduate and under-graduate level
the College may explore further the possibilities of additional PG programmes.
while 15% of teachers have Ph.D. as highest academic qualification, efforts need to be made to improve the academic qualifications of teaching staff. The state govt. may encourage the College faculty to undergo M.Phil and Ph.D.
in order to ensure quality education and sustain the same, student feed back needs to be implemented on academic programmes and faculty
the College needs to explore the possibilities of using communication technology gadgets and teaching aid material for post-graduate and under-graduate courses in phased manner. The college may further explore the possibilities of providing computers along with internet facility to more faculty and students.
efforts need to be made for automation of Library in phased manner.
college may explore possibilities of construction of library extension block with UGC grant
a counselling and guidance cell for students may be strengthened further.
the institution and the authorities of the state Government need to fill up all the available vacancies and strengthen teaching wherever the departments have paucity of teachers.
However care needs to be taken to see that all courses and options are taught by regular faculty.
the faculty needs to be more exposed to State level and national level seminars, symposia, conferences and workshops.
faculty members in general and that of science in particular need to make efforts to take up research work, minor or major, from University Grants Commission/Department of Science & Technology and/or any other funding authority.
a formal mechanism for collecting feed back from students on various aspects of their learning experiences at the departmental/institutional levels need to be instituted.
the institution may explore possibilities of further strengthening alumni association and facilitate establishment of parent-teacher association to fulfill its mission and goals.
The existing tutorial classes in every subject at under-graduate and post-graduate level need to be made broad based with grater frequency.
the Postgraduate College needs to optimise the use of its premises by having additional buildings to augment its existing physical infrastructure
being one of the oldest colleges due attention needs to be paid to the maintenance of physical infrastructure and college premises.
the College needs to provide short-term and crash courses to its non-teaching staff towards their professional development.
supporting staff needs to be motivated to undergo training through any non-formal mode/IGNOU to equip themselves with administrative skills, accounting, audit, managerial skills and computer skills.
The peer team is of the opinion that this exercise would be useful to the college to initiate the quality enhancement and quality sustenance strategies towards further growth and development.
