Media coverage of Marwari College, Ranchi Jharkhand, Jharkhand
Ranchi: Vocational courses hold out hope for manyRANCHI: There was a time when Jharkhand students had to migrate to other states for pursuing higher studies at undergraduate level. Now that Ranchi University has introduced new vocational and add-on courses in its colleges, students can avail quality education in their state.
The vocational courses usually give on-the-job training and one can enroll into these courses after completing his intermediate. This semester, we will introduce new vocational courses like PG diploma in journalism, TV and video production and functional Urdu and Persian, said Ranchi University vice-chancellor L N Bhagat. Courses like BCA, BBA, fashion designing have also been introduced in many colleges at the undergraduate level. Admission to these courses is usually based on ones performance in entrance tests. Manju Sinha, the principal of Marwari College said, We impart vocational training in subjects including biotechnology, IT, computer maintenance, insurance and human rights and we will conduct entrance tests for admission to these courses.
Students from Bihar and Chhattisgarh are also planning to apply for the vocational courses in Ranchi colleges. Ritika Verma, a student from Bihar said, I am planning to apply in Ranchi Womens College and Marwari College for three-year vocational course in fashion designing as I have heard about the quality education here.
Bhagat said, Besides putting an end to this trend of migration, we would also make efforts to attract students from other states as every college in the city offers quality vocational or add on courses.
Among the vocational courses, computer application and information technology are highly in demand, followed by BBA and fashion designing courses, available in four colleges of the city.
Lack of canteens irks college studentsRANCHI: A canteen is the most crucial part of a students life on the campus as it is here that he makes friends, hangs out for hours biting into piping hot samosas and shares the juiciest of gossips. However, many students in the capital are missing out on this important aspect of college life as many institutions do not have canteen facilities. As a result, students have to scout the neighbourhood for bites.
We have to go out and eat when we are hungry as there is no canteen in the college. There is a temporary arrangement for serving tea but the idea does not appeal to us, said Pragati, a student of Womens College science block.
This college has more than 12,000 students and yet the administration is not making arrangements for their refreshments. Shanaya, a student of the college, said, We have been demanding a canteen for a long time. Even if one does come up in the near future, I wont be able to enjoy canteen life as such because I am in my final year.
Principal Zeenat Kausar said, We have plans for a canteen. The work will start as soon as we get funds from UGC.
Similar is the condition of other colleges. The Marwari College has more than 14,000 students and yet students have to go out looking for food during break. There are even instances of students falling ill after eating roadside food. Two of my friends fell ill after eating chaat from a thelawallah outside the college. We have no option but to gorge on junk food. Even if we bring tiffin where do we eat? Is it possible to eat in front of everyone in the classroom? asked Zeba, a student of Marwari College.
Theres another problem of going out to eat. Girl students become easy targets of roadside Romeos, who wait outside the gate to tease these youngsters. They are aware of our lunch timings and harass us. Sometimes they tug at our dupattas and even slap us on the back! said Sandhya, a student of Womens College.
Other colleges which do not have canteens are Doranda College, S S Memorial College and J N College. The president of the Jharkhand Students Union, S Ali, said, We have been demanding canteens in colleges for a long time but the Ranchi University administration has not been taking our demand seriously. They are least bothered.

The College conducts seminars and workshops by inviting eminent scholars in the field. Although there is no provision for assessing student's knowledge and skill for any programme after admission, the regular course content is enriched by the faculty members through classroom discussion, seminars, project work and by arranging tutorial classes as planned in the Departmental Council Meeting.
The college has a General Studies Paper which is based on value education and taught compulsorily at the third year of the under graduate courses. The College has also organised a national Seminar. An UGC sponsored national Seminar on 'Child Labour' was organised by the Department of Commerce.
CRITERION II : TEACHING, LEARNING AND EVALUATION
In most of the courses students are admitted on the basis of their academic record and as per regulations framed by the University. Admission is done strictly in accordance with the policy of reservation of Government of Jharkhand, being a tribal dominated State. Remedial coaching is not offered at the early stage of admission, but the institution arranges tutorial classes, group discussion, quiz competition etc for the benefit of the students. The college also supplements the lecture method by audio visual system, using overhead projector, slide projector and LCD projector. The College encourages the faculty members to make an effective teaching plan after discussion in the Department Council Meeting. The syllabi is unitized according to the annual system of teaching.

As a result, 55 faculty members participated at the national level seminars/workshop/conferences and ten members as resource persons in the last two years. As many as 5 teachers participated at the international level, with and 4 of them as resource persons. The teachers are also encouraged to participate in the refresher and orientation programmes and avail the faculty improvement programme of the UGC.

A few teachers have experience of guiding research as supervisors for Ph.D. degree. Many of them have to their credit the publication of books and research papers in different journals. 20 percent of teachers are engaged in research. The college authorities should encourage other faculty members to take up research projects and consultancy programmes which will not only enrich the faculty but also be of great help to students. A few departments have received UGC grants for minor research projects. 18 such projects amounting to a total grants of 12 lakhs, are currently in progress. The college encourages the teachers by supporting them with study leave, providing them seed money and adjusting the teaching schedule.

In the admission of students, the college has closely followed the norms of the State Government and the University. S.C., S.T. and BC I have been admitted according to the quota.
The College has also admitted a few handicapped and disabled students. There are 1400 students from other States in UG level while in self financing courses 68 are from other States. The percentage of students appearing for the examination is 90% and success rate is 82%. The progression to higher education is 90% while the progression to employment is 20% to 25%.

SECTION III : OVER ALL ANALYSIS
The Marwari College of Ranchi catering to the higher education and professional advancement to a student population of more than 9000 was coming close to its avowed aim. Its co-educational status and pursuit of vocational courses particularly for girls of the State in a cordial and peaceful environment, have left a positive image in the society and academic circles.
The Peer Team during its interaction with parents and alumini has noted with oppreciation, the positive social propectives the institution enjoys. It is evident that the college has been striving to achieve its in started mission and objectives.
Even while the college is expanding in its functions and getting more modernised in the teaching and learning process, a few qualitative suggestions may be offered for further improvement in the pursuit of keeping abreast of developments and achieving excellence.
In view of the socio economic backwardness of the State and to help out future employment of tribal and Schedule Castes boys and girls, the College needs to provide freeship and scholorships in the vocational courses. This may be raised by aching the local social work agencies like Lions Club and Rotary Club as well as the industrialists and public sectors. Undertakings who need to perform their social reponsibilities.
This will also helps to fill up the reservation quota in the vocational courses.
In view of the large number of boys and girls who emerge successfully from five very useful vocational courses which can assure them of jobs, the college needs to activate its employment cell and undertake state placement. This will also strengthen and sustain the professional courses.
The College with its excellent teaching community, many of whom are D.Litt. and Ph.D. holders and have pursued research and have publications, need to go for PG programmes in selective subjects. This will particularly help the undergraduate girl students who may find it difficult to move out of the city.
Almost all the teachers are handling more than their load of classes. This will reflect on their efficiency and continuing research activity. Efforts should be made to fill up the vacant posts and hire more temporary teachers, preferably from younger age group.
This will also help in bringing down the average age of teachers, and update the knowledge and skills in the college.
The college, for better utilisation of teachers' potentials and their comforts, provide for a departmental room for teachers in all the departments.
The college needs to provide more welfare schemes for the teachers and non-teaching staff, by way of housing, housing loans, loans against provident fund etc. It should provide for scooter stands.
It should seek to expedite the retirement benefits payments.
The College needs to put its grievance Cell in place and strengthen it.
The women's Cell needs to be strengthened and encouraged to pursue its aims. It needs a place for its activities, and an advisory committee to help it plan its activities. The Women's cell should link itself with local NGOs, government departments and international agencies. It should become more active among women teachers and students of both the campuses, by its social awareness activities, extension and research.
The libraries should have a method of weeding out old collections so as to give space to new books with latest knowledge.
The libraries should provide separate place and furniture for the teachers to spend their free time. At present only one (the latest) library has this facility.
There should be a separate common room for women teachers, with attached or separate toilets in each floor.
The college should seek play grounds in both the campuses. The available empty space within the campus or in the neighbourhood should be utilised as sports field.
The college should provide for both indoor and outdoor sports for girls.
The college should provide for separate common room for girls, especially in the boys section preferably near where the girls toilets are located.
The College management should try to get hostel accommodation for its students, starting with a girls hostel. It should explore all possible sources of finance, including the welfare department of government, the MLA local development funds, Lions and Rotary Clubs etc. This will provide protect the girls social security, and their stay in private hostels, besides providing a wholesome environment.
The college should start and upgrade its alumini lists. It should seek devotions for its developmental and extension activities from resourceful alumini.
Amenities like potable drinking water for students, water in the toilets need more attention. With nearly a population of 19000 (including the I.Sc. students, IGNOU students and teachers and non-teaching staff) the college has to pay due attention to such daily needs and maintenance of amenities.
The girls section need more attention. Its teachers and staff should be more closely integrated with the other section, which is the main centre of administration, teaching, and extra curricular activities. Its rooms need better upkeeping. The library and toilets need to be looked into.
Its open space need to be maintained and utilised better, by providing green cover and beautification. At present it looks marginalised and forlorn . It should have more amenities, better maintenance and conducive environment. It look barren and barren and open.
The Principal may visit the girls' campus more often and sort out the problems of girls and women teachers, besides giving them a sense of belonging to the college. At present it looks like another college, but without an identity. It should be provided with a canteen and students' store. The students should be involved in running them.
The NCC girls unit needs little more attention and practice; seem to lack self confidence.
The Department of Botany should develop its botanical garden which will help them in getting specimens necessary for their practical work.
Being located in the industrial belt of the State of Jharkhand, the college can very well take up the consultancy services in the industrial and other sectors. Competent faculty members should be encouraged to offer consultancy which will not only enrich the faculty but will be of great help to the students as well.
Keeping in view the ideal location of the College, linkages with the industries and co-operatives around would be helpful for the institution to strengthen the practical aspect of the curriculam for the benefit of the students. It would be advisable if the College plans to enrich the courses to meet the local needs by conducting a few more skill oriented programmes as well as some socially relevant courses in the context of Jharkhand such as tribal welfare, administration, forestry and environment and status of tribal women. This will also be in accordance with the goals of the College.
The members of the Peer Team would like to place on record their sincere thanks to the Principal, Faculty, Non-teaching staff, students, parents of the students and alumini, for the support and assistance during the visit of NAAC Peer Team.
