Media coverage of Khalsa College of Education, Amritsar Punjab, Punjab

Greece, Russian dancers mesmerise audience

Students, staff and alumnae of the Khalsa College of Education and its other institution had a scintillating experience by watching a rhythmic dance performance by folk artistes from Greece and Russia. The artistes were in the city to participate in the Amritsar International Folk Festival organised by the Punjab Cultural Promotion Council (PCPC).

The artistes engrossed the audience with their breathtaking performance. Students from Khalsa College presented bhangra.

Addressing the audience, PCPC director Devinder Singh Chinna said it was his endeavour to present the glimpse of the culture of Punjab to the people across the world besides bringing foreign artistes in the country so that people, especially students, could become aware of the different societies and their cultures outside India.

He said 40 such festivals had been conducted by the council till now.

The group leader of the Psilorilis Folk Ensemble from Greece, Rinia Botchka, expressing her delight after watching gidda and bhangra by local students said, “It was a great experience to perform in Amritsar and see the culture and folk dances of Punjab. Such festivals also help promoting peace and friendship between countries.”

Isha Kovavira, leader of the Preplyas Folk Ensemble from Russia, termed the experience as a good one as it had helped her group members in acquainting themselves with the culture of Punjab.

Earlier welcoming the guest artistes, Jaswinder Singh Dhillon, principal, Khalsa College of Education, appreciated the concept and appreciated the efforts of Chinna for promoting the culture of Punjab. The artistes also exchanged mementos. Mayor Shawet Malik, Khalsa College Managing Committee secretary Rajinder Mohan Singh Chinna were present on the occasion.

Dhillon elected education panel secretary

Jaswinder Singh Dhillon, principal, Khalsa College of Education, has been elected secretary, education committee of the Chief Khalsa Diwan, despite the fact that the petition of his predecessor, Mohinder Singh Dhillon, dean (colleges) is still pending with the Jathedar, Akal Takht.

The dean (colleges) in his complaint had informed Jathedar, Akal Takht, that he was illegally removed as secretary, education committee, on the pretext that he had not organised education conferences in the past five years.

However, Charnjit Singh Chadha, president of the diwan, said the principal, Khalsa College of Education, had been unanimously elected as the secretary. “With the nomination of seven members of the diwan and induction of five others (two graduates and two scholars from educational institutes and one from a Sikh institution), the formation of the committee stood completed.

In his petition the dean had alleged that secretary (honorary) Bhag Singh Ankhi was not taken into confidence before his unceremonious removal. However, Chadha claimed that the dean was removed as per the constitution of the diwan. He claimed that Ankhi and Dhillon did not attend the two meetings of the diwan which led to the latter’s sacking. He had also claimed that Dhillon had failed to organise the education conferences within the stipulated period as per the constitution of the diwan. Chadha said he had informed Jathedar, Akal Takht, about the proceedings in which Dhillon was removed.

Khalsa College Principal reverted

Dr J.S. Dhillon, Principal of Khalsa College, who had been sent on ‘compulsory’ leave after allegations of embezzlement in students’ fund, misbehaviour and hiring of former students of the college to beat up striking students were levelled against him, was reverted to the Khalsa College of Education (B.Ed college for women) here today. He had written to the management committee to allow him to join Khalsa College, but was asked to join the Khalsa College of Education again, where he joined as Principal today.

When students of Khalsa College got this news, they distributed ‘laddoos’ in the college. They raised slogans in favour of the management committee and the Students Welfare Association (SWA). Gursharan Singh Chhina, a leader of the SWA, in a press note, welcomed the step.

Dr Dhillon had been sent on three months’ leave after a former student of the college, who had recorded the interaction between him and the Principal, made it public. In the interaction, the Principal had allegedly asked the former student to beat up the students who were on strike.

The SWA had held a demonstration and the students had called an indefinite strike. Various student organisations, including the National Students Union of India and the Sikh Students Federation, had supported the agitation. The SWA had alleged that the Principal misused students’ funds for his personal benefit.

According to the SWA, he transferred the money from students’ funds to the Principal’s personal account on June 11, 2004. It had stated that as per university rules, the presence and signatures of two teachers’ representatives and two students’ representatives were necessary while drawing money from the students’ fund.

It had been alleged that the students’ fund was used for the construction of the Principal’s residence. According to the SWA, the college was charging Rs 600 per student annually for the past five years for the construction of an auditorium, which had not been constructed.

Brief History of the Institution

Khalsa College of Education, Amritsar is a Premier Teacher Education Institution. It has its roots in the main Khalsa College, Amritsar (Estd. 1892). Khalsa College Complex is not merely an educational institution, but also a historical monument. It is a rare example of Indian classical architecture of the World, designed by the famous architect, Bhai Ram Singh. He planned the main building in I-E shape that represented an amalgam of four architectural patterns which are Gothic, Rajput, Mughal and Sikhs.

Today the College building has become a subject of interest for archaeological society of the state and country. Khalsa College of Education, is housed in a magnificent building, which was then known as Patiala House . It was a gift from His Highness Maharaja Rajinder Singh Mahindar Bahadur, The Ruler of Patiala, on his coronation on October 23, 1890.

The history of Khalsa College is practically the history of renaissance among the Sikhs. This college was founded by the Sikhs at the fag end of the 19th century to curve the growth of religious conversions of the Sikhs by the Christian rulers.The onslaught of the Western Culture and ideas that followed in the wake of the British Annexation of Punjab, weaned the people away from their own traditions, culture and heritage. The D.A.V. movement started by the Arya Samaj and Aligarh movement proved as a prelude to the Sikhs to start this college for educating the Sikh masses. The Singh Sabha Movement was established in 1873 in order to restore Sikhism to its pristine purity, edit and pubish religious books and enkindle a spirit of religious commitment in the minds of the Sikhs. In the educational field, it yielded the finest result in the rearing up of the great edifice of Khalsa College and all that it stands for.

The main objective of Khalsa College was to spread amongst the Sikhs Modern Education, Science and Technology on Western lines so that the students were kept abreast of the times. Various departments were opened keeping in view this point. In 1954, a B.T. Department was opened to highlight the importance of educating would be teachers. The B.T. department was shaped into a full fledged College of Education in 1959. Initially, there were two units of 100 B.T. students. Subsequently, one unit of J.B.T. and two more units of B.Ed. students were added. In 1969, the J.B.T. class was taken over by the State Govt. It was shifted to J.B.T. Centre, Verka.

Khalsa College of Education enjoys a unique and prestigious position in the field of education. To achieve greater heights, M.Ed. class was added in 1969-70. It is functioning satisfactorily till today and has provided many teacher educators to this region. In the year 1987-88, G.N.D.U. started M.Phil (Education) class in this college. This had to be discontinued in 1995-96 with a plea that M.Phil was irrelevant with the introduction of National Eligibility Test for the recruitment of college teachers. In the year 1991-92, the college took another progressive step and started one year N & E Course, with graduation as the basic qualification. As the State Govt. did not recognize this course equivalent to B.Ed. it had to be discontinued in the session 1994-95.

At present, the college has 200 B.Ed , 25 M.Ed and 40 PGDCA (T.E.) students. Research facility for Ph.D(Edu.) is also available. At present about one dozen researchers are doing Ph.D in Education, under the supervision of Dr. J.S.Dhillon, Dr. J. S.Walia, Dr.(Mrs.) Praveen Thukral and Dr. (Mrs.) Jeewan Jyoti Sadana. The college is planning to start regular coaching classes for UGC/ NET/ JRF eligibility test and M.Phil in Education from the next academic session. It is a matter of Pride that Khalsa College of Education is the first institution in the Northern Region, which has been recognized by N.C.T.E and accepted as Nodal Institution for the North zone. National council of Teacher Education has also made this college a Master coordinating college for conducting Information Communication Technology Camps in Punjab and neighbouring states. In future, this college will act as Multimedia Development and Research center of N.C.T. E.

During the last 50 years, the college has produced thousands of teachers and teacher educators who are serving the cause of education not only in India but through out the world. This institution is the nursery of Vice Chancellors, Principals, Educationists, Scholars, Researchers, Administrators etc who have brought laurels to this institution by dint of their administrative acumen and hard work. As a part of celebration of Golden Jubilee the college has started the publication a Journal of Education – Education : New Horizons, published a Directory of Old Students Association of the College and hold an International Conference of All India Association for Educational Research (AIAER) on Research Issues in Education for Peace and Development in March 20-21-22, 2003. This will be a year of Action and Quality Education with the objective Sky is the Limit .

To achieve excellence, new networkings of the resources have come-up. In this context the college has already planned to add off-line and on-line digital resources and to update the existing infrastructure so that a perfectly conducive learning environment may be created.

Principal in a fix over sons admission

The Principal of Khalsa College of Education, Dr Jaswinder Singh Dhillon, is in a fix as Guru Nanak Dev University, after seeking legal opinion, has reached the conclusion that granting of one-year leave to him during his stint as lecturer in the academic college of the university was not according to the university statute.

As a result, son of Dr Dhillon becomes ineligible for admission to the B.Tech (Electronics) course under the NRI quota with concession of fee as admissible to the wards of university employees.

The department concerned has recommended that the matter may be taken up at the next meeting of the Syndicate to cancel the admission of the son of Dr Dhillon and the student be charged full fee under NRI quota.

As per statute a temporary employee can be granted extraordinary leave for three months at a time, but Dr Dhillon applied for one-year leave as he had to join as the Principal Khalsa College of Education. The legal adviser has opined that the matter may be placed before the Syndicate.

The Vice-Chancellor, Dr S.P. Singh said the matter would be taken at the next Syndicate meeting. He said the Syndicate was likely to ask Dr Dhillon to deposit the remaining amount which is around Rs 6 lakh.

Gurkeerat Singh, son of Dr Dhillon, was admitted on July 9, 2001 before the meeting of the Syndicate was held on July 20, 2001.

However, Dr Dhillon claimed that he had availed the teachers quota strictly as per university statute. Moreover the admission was cleared by the previous Syndicate which could not be challenged. He claimed that other employees of the academic college had availed more leave than he had.

KHALSA COLLEGE OF EDUCATION AMRITSAR Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERS Civil Writ Petition 5466 of 2009

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH


Date of Decision: April 30, 2009

Khalsa College of Education, Amritsar .....PETITIONER(S)
VERSUS
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)

CORAM:
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA

PRESENT: -
Mr. Sameer Sachdeva, Advocate, for the petitioner.
Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab.

AJAI LAMBA, J (Oral)
Learned counsel contends that the petitioner is entitled to release of grant-in-aid.

The same, however, is not being released and therefore, the petitioner-College is not in a position to pay the salaries.

In this regard, learned counsel has relied on the decision dated 21.3.2009 of this Court in Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009 titled ‘BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others’.

Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that the grant-in-aid is required to be released in terms of judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.

In the case of BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr (supra), this Court, while relying on judgment dated 18.12.2007 in C.W.P. No.14340 of 2006, titled `Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others’ and decision dated 24.4.2008 rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others’, has held:-

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgment rendered in Arya College’s case (supra) and decision rendered in C.W.P. No.5393 of 2008, decided on 24.4.2008, in case titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and others’, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 3 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representations to the respondents.

In Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra), the following has been held by the Division Bench of this Court:-

Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed reliance on the judgments State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, 1995(5) Supreme Court Cases 730, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School, 2000(8) Supreme Court Cases 370, and State of Haryana and others versus Babita Yadav and Others, 2004(13) Supreme Court Cases 734, to contend that the paucity of funds or financial contributions cannot be taken a ground to deny the grant-in-aid to Government recognized private colleges while extending such facility to recognized private colleges by the State.

After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, we are of the considered view that the case of the petitioner is
squarely covered by the decision in the State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School and State of Haryana and others versus Babita Yadav and Others (supra). The State Government cannot take up the ground that due to paucity of funds, it is unable to give grant-in-aid to the colleges.

In view of the above, we hold that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid as claimed by the petitioner within a period of three months, after the clearance of the objections by the petitioner. The petitioner shall try to clear all the objections raised by the State Government within a period of one month from today. As far as balance 10% of the amount of grant-in-aid case is concerned, the petitioner may submit a separate representation to the respondents. The respondents are also further directed to release the grant-in-aid to the petitioner in future also in time.

In another judgment dated 19.2.2008 rendered by a Division Bench of this Court in Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007 titled `The Managing Committee, Guru Gobind Singh College, Saghera, Barnala, District Sangrur vs. State of Punjab and Another’, similar view has been taken as in the case of Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra).

It has been brought out that State of Punjab filed a Special Leave Petition before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India directed against the judgment rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India while dealing with SLP No.15798 of 2008 dismissed the petition on 8.12.2008 by passing the following order:-

Delay condoned.
We find no merit in this petition which is accordingly dismissed. However, two months time is granted to the
petitioner State of Punjab to release the amount which is due and payable to the respondent College subject to
removal of objections pointed by the High Court in the impugned order.

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgments to which reference has been made hereinabove, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid due is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representations to the respondents.

Petition is allowed in the above terms.
