NAAC report of Shree Khandelwal Vaish Post Graduate MahavidyalayaSection 1 : Introduction
Govindram Seksaria Science College, Belgaum, Karnataka run by the South Kokan Education(S.K.E.) Society was established in 1966 at Belgaum with an objective of boosting education leading to social and economical development of the region. Later, the Government of Karnataka in 1988 recognised it as a linguistic Minority institution. The society also runs 6 other educational institutions. The progress made by the College in promoting quality education reasonably matches with the aims and objectives planned at the time of establishment. The U.G.C. has included the college under 2f and 12B list for the purpose of grants in 1966. The college volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore and submitted its self-study report on 30th November 2001. NAAC appointed Peer-Team consisting of Professor S. F. Patil, Vice Chancellor of Bharati Vidyapeeth Deemed University, Pune as Chairperson, Prof. K. G. Narayana Pillai, Director, College Development Council, Mahatma Gandhi University, Kottayam, Kerala and Professor Rajan Welukar, Officer on Special Duty to Higher and Technical Education Department of Government of Maharashtra, Mumbai, as Members for scrutinizing and validating the self-study report submitted by the College. The team visited the college on 19th and 20th February, 2002. Dr.M.S.Shyamasundar, Assistant Advisor and Mr.B.R.Manjunath, Academic Consultant of NAAC facilitated the Peer-Team Visit.
Govindram Seksaria Science College affiliated to Karnataka University, Dharwad has campus area of about 32 acres and offers education in faculty of Science at undergraduate level including diploma and certificate courses. It has a total of 16 departments with a total faculty of 74, out of which 60 are permanent and 14 are temporary for both aided and self-financing courses. Among the faculty members, 6 teachers are Ph.D. degree holders and 2 are M.Phil. degree holders. There are 58 non-teaching staff appointed for smooth functioning of the college activities. The Peer-Team carefully examined and analyzed the self-study report submitted by the Principal. During the College visit, the members studied the relevant documents, visited different departments and various facilities provided for academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension activities of the college and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The Peer-Team discussed at length with the Governing body, Principal, Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff, Students, Parents and Alumni of the College. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the seven criteria identified by the NAAC, the Peer-Team assessed the institution for the quality of education. The assessment of the institution under various criteria, commendable features of the institution, as well as issues of concern are presented below.
Section 2 : Criterion-Wise Analysis
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
Being an affiliated college, it follows the pattern of syllabi approved by Board of Studies, Faculty of Science and Academic Council of the Karnataka University at the undergraduate level. The college provides 12 undergraduate programmes leading to Bachelor degree in science. Students have to offer a combination of three elective subjects as per University pattern involving twelve different combinations. The college also runs a vocational certificate course and two vocational diploma courses. It is better if these vocational courses are conducted beyond the regular schedule so that regular students can take advantage of diploma and certificate courses and acquire additional skills even as they study for regular degree. Most of the courses are traditional without vocational approach. However, there are sufficient options in core and non-core subjects and student-teacher ratio is adequate in most of the departments. Languages like Hindi, English, Marathi, Kannada and Sanskrit are taught depending upon the choice of the students.
Some members of the college faculty are represented in the Senate and Board of Studies. Though the curriculum and teaching programmes are framed by the University, the teacher representatives in the University bodies get a chance to actively involve in the syllabi and curriculum framing and restructuring. However, a scheme for regular review of programmes has to be chalked out with the help of similar institutions and financial assistance from regional and national funding agencies.
Though the temporal plan of majority of programs is annual, the college may explore the possibility of introducing semesterisation and credit system in all courses.
A systematic feed back from alumni, parents, academic peers and employers are not still practiced. Feed back and its analysis will provide an insight into the strength of the programmes, future expansion, maintenance and improvement of the quality of the programmes. Suitable steps may be taken in this regard.
The college has not been able to interact with other institutions regularly. But it is necessary to explore the possibility of inviting experts and to arrange lectures and other programmes to provide better exposure to students and faculty.
There is a limited flexibility for introduction of courses because of the affiliation system. The college authorities may think of obtaining autonomous status so that, need-based courses can be instituted for achieving their goals. The courses such as Microbiology, Bio-technology, Environment Sciences, Statistics and Information technology could be initiated with an eye on technological and career intended approach matching with the changing scenario. Possibility of networking with the neighbouring Industries and Institutions may be thought of at the time of initiating such courses.
Criterion III : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Admissions are given as per rules framed by the University and Government. Faculty helps the students by counselling to choose right courses suited to their interest. It is noted that the dropout rate of students is quite high and number of students admitted is decreasing every year. Strategy to popularize science among students needs to be planned by the teachers to attract them. At this point the peer team noted that the steps taken by the Physics, Electronics and Computer science departments in this regard are noteworthy.
After admission, through regular tests, tutorials and home assignments, the student's knowledge is assessed. Academically weak and slow learners are identified in each department and remedial coaching classes are conducted and special attention is paid for their academic betterment. In addition their parents are informed of the performance of their ward.
Occasional class-room seminars, group discussions, inter-collegiate and inter-University seminars and workshops are arranged for advanced learners. Such students are provided with additional study materials through library. To motivate excellence in academics endowment prizes are instituted and awarded. Enrichment courses in the form of coaching in entrance examinations to all India administrative and academic programmes are being arranged. Faculty members and ex-servicemen coach students aspiring to join defence departments.
The results of the tests are discussed with students and the academic performance of tests as well as the attendance of the students is informed to the parents. It is preferred to introduce tutor-ward system allotting specific number of students to each teacher so that academic progress of each student can be closely monitored apart from extending the desired help in personal matters at the time of the need.
Teaching schedule made well in advance and displayed on the notice board for students and monthly record is kept in the teacher's diary. Head of the department and the Principal monitor the teaching of every teacher keeping transparency and accountability. The topics are allotted to each staff member at the beginning of the academic year and synopsis of every topic is prepared by the teacher. Evaluation methods are communicated and discussed with the students at the beginning of the academic year with tentative schedule of class test, home assignment and mid-term examination.
It is worth noting that practice of formal feedback from the students regarding teaching performance of teachers is followed. This enables faculty members to know their strength and weaknesses in teaching and academic activities.
A wide range of audio-visual equipments such as slide projectors, OHP, monitor displays are used to supplement class room teaching. Group discussions, seminars, field study and project works are arranged. Students are motivated to see regularly TV channels such as National Geographic Channel, Discovery and UGC.
The appointment of faculty is made according to merit following University/UGC and Government rules. It may be proper to include external experts not connected with the management and HOD of the concerned subject in the selection committee as full-fledged members. It is to be noted that only a few teachers are utilizing the teacher development programs (FIP/FDP) of UGC and other agencies. A few of the faculty have received awards and attained recognition. Some of the teachers have written text- books and popular books in English and vernacular.
The teachers, supporting staff and students maintain good relations. The cordial relationship maintained between the students and faculty of the various institutions in the campus is a healthy step which need special mention.
Criterion III : Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college has only 6 Ph.D. holders and 2 M.Phil holders out of total 74 faculty members. Research programs need to be initiated by the faculty members . At present there is only one collaborated on-going project in the Department of Geology. The faculty has potential to carry out research projects but they need genuine motivation and guidance. Teaching, research and extension have to go hand in hand. Teachers seem to be unaware of the projects of national and regional funding agencies like DST, DBT, UGC, ICAR etc. Teachers may be motivated to explore the possibility of attracting minor and major project-linked funds for research, seminars, symposia, workshops, COSIP, COHSSIP, travel, etc. This will enable to develop infrastructural facilities for research in various disciplines and to create a research environment in the college. Young faculty members should be encouraged to do M.Phil. and Ph.D. under FIP/FDP of the UGC.
The concept of formal consultancy is yet to grow in the college. However, department of Geology do some consultancy in ore-sampling, mineral prospecting and ground water explorations. Some of the faculty members of Botany and Chemistry departments provide informal consultancy to local foundries and electroplating industries. A faculty member of the Physics department has developed a few electronic devices and offers consultancy on them. The college could explore the possibility of establishing collaboration with local industries with an aim of giving consultancy on payment basis.
The college has undertaken a variety of multifaceted extension programmes such as community development, health and hygiene awareness, AIDS awareness, social work, medical camps, blood donation camps, environmental awareness etc. The NSS and NCC units of the college have done a commendable job in achieving their goals and earning the reputation in the university. The college also helps organizations like Rotary Club, Lions Club etc. in arranging youth festivals and street plays. Many of the students have won awards at State and National levels. It is commendable that the college team has won the coveted 'Rangadeepti' trophy in Intercollegiate Youth Festival for two successful years.
Teachers have established eco-awareness organisation called 'PARYAVARANI' which organises programmes for preventing destructive activities in relation to environment. It is commendable to mention that the proposal submitted by PARYAVARANI on 'Sahyadri Ecologically Sensitive Area' to the Government of Karnataka has been accepted in toto. The programmes pertaining to environment awareness initiated by the college is worth emulating by other colleges in the university. The peer team appreciate's the development and maintenance of a garden of medicinal plants in the campus.
Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has a picturesque campus with an area of about 32 acres. The master plan has permitted logical and orderly growth of the campus, keeping adequate provision for future expansion. The campus has sufficient space to accommodate all the existing departments and academic facilities like central library, health centre, separate hostel for girls and boys, parking shed, bank, canteen, administrative building, open air theatre, sports facilities etc. The management generates enough resources to plan infrastructural development keeping in pace with academic growth. There is a continuous development of the campus in the recent past. The laboratories, gymkhana and boys hostel are recently renovated. Management has planned another boys hostel, indoor stadium for badminton and other games. The college utilizes grants from State government, and donations from well-wishers for the maintenance of the infrastructure
The campus facilities are effectively used by this college as well as by Rani Pravati Devi College of Arts & Commerce of the same society. Rani Pravati Devi College of Arts & Commerce works in the morning between 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and Govindram Seksaria Science College functions between 10.30 a.m. to 5.30 p.m. The college library is rich in text and reference books and has over 30,000 books and subscribes to 80 periodicals. It has a spacious reading hall with a capacity of 200 students. It provides book-bank facility to deserving students. The library should subscribe more national and international journals of general and research interest. The facility of departmental library needs to be extended in other departments and existing departmental library needs to be strengthened by buying more reference books. The library needs to be computerized for effective utilization. Setting up a corner for enhancing the information of career potentials of students may be looked into.
The college has physical educational centre with playgrounds for cricket, hockey and football as well as courts for kho-kho, kabbaddi, basketball, volleyball and a 400 mts track. Spacious gymkhana hall with badminton court and stage for drama and cultural events as well as multi-gym facilities are also available. It is commendable that state and national champions are produced in sports by the college, especially in swimming and football.
Facility for staff quarters also exists in the college. The health centre facilities need to be strengthened by appointing a resident doctor and supporting staff.
The management is advised to plan for future infrastructural facilities by constructing multimedia centre and separate computer centre, central workshop and printing press in a phased manner.
There is a canteen housed in a separate building which serves food on nominal rates. However, the canteen may maintain cleanliness from the health and hygiene point of view. There is a consumer co-operative store and co-operative credit Society in the campus. College has an electrical workshop to under take repairing and maintenance of electric equipments and services.
There are separate hostels in the campus with 37 girls residing in the girls hostel and 40 boys in the boys hostel. Both hostels have reading room and telephone facility. Food is arranged on contract system. There is a guest house and an extension counter of Union Bank and IGNOU centre in the campus. The college office is partially computerized .

Criterion V : Students Support and Progression
The college prospectus is printed annually with adequate information regarding courses offered, eligibility and norms of admission, fee structure, scholarship and concessions, the academic calendar and facilities available in the college along with rules and regulations. Most worrying part is the drop-out rate of students. The results are also not very encouraging though some of the students rank in the University examinations. The strategy needs to be developed to increase the results of university examinations.
There is no formal career counselling service. Student welfare officer helps in these matters. Similarly there is no placement cell. Regular counselling service as well as placement cell need to be establish on a priority basis. The alumni association can contribute a lot for the development of educational infrastructure as well as in raising funds needed for quality education.
It is commendable that the college has made a mark in the field of sports at state, national and international levels especially in swimming events. New records is created in athletics. The college organizes a number of programmes and cultural activities for all round development of the personality of the students. NCC (Air wing) has earned the name at national levels and brought fame to the college by winning several medals and awards.One unit of N.S.S. with 100 volunteers is working in the college. It is involved in social work and awareness activities.
Notable feature of the college is that it collects the feedback from the students using questionnaires and is analyzed by the Principal and Management for initiating required actions for creating conducive environment for education as well as for maintaining the desired quality of education.
There are number of welfare schemes operating in the college, in addition to the ones given by the State and National Governments. Many endowments to merit holders are instituted by the college and management. Incentives are given to outstanding performers in sports and games.

The day-to-day administration of the college is vested with the Principal who is appointed by the governing council of the SKE Society.
The organizational structure of the society includes the Governing Council consisting of 15 members which looks after policy matter and overall functioning of the college. The College Managing Committee, the subcommittee of Governing Council, meets every tuesday to monitor and review the working of the college. Several committees such as Admission Committee, Attendance Committee, Time-Table Committee, Library Committee, Gymkhana Managing Committee and Discipline Committee etc. are constituted in organizing and conducting various college activities. Every committee works independently and the decisions taken in the meeting are conveyed to the Principal for further needful action.
The norms and guidelines formulated by the management as well as by the government are followed for the appointment of teaching and non-teaching staff. Additional teaching and non-teaching staff are appointed by the management from their funds for maintaining standards in education. The college has an in built mechanism to check the work efficiency of teaching and non- teaching staff through appraisal report.
There is an internal and external audit mechanism, besides the statutory audits. By and large the administrative staff are students and faculty friendly. The administrative staff need to be trained to modern management techniques.
