Section 2 : Criterion-Wise Analysis
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated college of the University of Rajasthan, the college follows the syllabi prescribed by the University for the Science and Commerce faculties both at the under-graduate and post-graduate levels in the annual pattern. The Thecollege offers 21 programmes : 05 UG programmes, 08 PG programmes and 08 Ph.Ds.in different disciplines.
*The college is represented at the Academic Council of the University by a senior faculty member who interacts with the parent university on suggestions and observations about all the academic issues and helps in bringing suitable changes periodically. The Head and some teachers who are members of the respective Board of Studies play a vital role in updating the syllabi and making them more relevant to the society and industry. Presently, the college follows newly designed curriculum of UGC as the same has been adopted by the University. This updated curriculum enables the students to compete effectively and confidently in various competitive examinations. The programmes are generally in conformity with the clearly defined goals and objectives of the institution.
Criterion II : Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
*The college has a transparent admission process and the students are selected on the basis of their academic record. The syllabi are unitized according to term- wise teaching schedule. The lecture method of teaching is supplemented by models and charts. Three tests are conducted and the evaluations are communicated to the students. However, the parents are not informed about the wards who do not appear in exams.
*The Government of Rajasthan has an efficient mechanism to recruit qualified faculty through Rajasthan Public Service Commission. At present, the college has a faculty with 105 teachers - 58 Ph.Ds, 12 M.Phils and 35 Post Graduates. However, the perscribed syllabus of B.Sc. Part. I students is not available in the college library.

As many as 26 teachers attended national level seminars and 3 attended international level seminars,12 attended Orientation Programmes and 70 attended Refreshers courses during the last two years. However, there is no institutional mechanism for faculty appraisal by peers and students. National and International linkages for teaching as also for research are non-existent.

Eight departments in the college offer research programmes leading to Ph.D. degree in different disciplines. As many as 19 students have been awarded Ph.D degree during the last 5 years. At present 20 full-time and 01 part-time research scholars and 10% of teachers are actively involved in research. PG students are also encouraged for research projects. There are 3 ongoing research projects funded by UGC with a total outlay of Rs. 3,33,000/- out of which two are minor and one is major project.

*The institute has a library with 1,01,909 books and 35 journals/ periodicals. During the last two years 3559 text books were added at a cost of Rs. 6.24 lacs. However, there is no proper cataloguing system. The refrence section of the library does not have proper sitting arrangement.There is a central computer facility with 19 computers in the college. Five departments have their own computers. The present infrastructure is hardly sufficient to cater to the need of an institution of this dimension. The educational programmes and administration functions efficiently but to keep pace with the academic growth, there is a lot of scope for extension in the future. The science labs need proper updating and renovation.
*In case of sports, the facilities for most of the outdoor and indoor games are available but they are not being utilized to the optimum level. Students are given incentives for sports activities. Five students were selected in the University team last year and participated at the state level meet. However, there is no sports wing.
*There are no hostel facilities for boy and girls.
*The college encourages the use of academic facilities by external agencies. For example, the study centres of IGNOU and VMOU have been set up in the college campus. The maintenance of its infrastructure is done with the help of Government and UGC funds and the fees collected from the students and the Development fund which has being created recently.

Section 3 : Overall Analysis
The Peer Team, after going through the self-study report and after its visit to various academic and physical facilities, is satisfied by the progress of the institution. The college has earned a reputation for imparting quality education both in teaching and research and creating a sense of discipline in the younger generation.
The Peer Team would like to commend the institution in respects of the following aspects :
*Encouragement and the support given by Head of the institution.
*Effective leadership and good human relationship resulting in efficient team
*Dedication and commitment of the teaching and the non teaching staff of the
*Publication of research papers and books, subscription to journals/periodicals.
*Facilitating aspect of the institution to promote student participation and achievement in sports and cultural activities.
*Encouragement for participation in national/international seminars.
*Upgradation of teaching skills through attending refresher courses/orientation
There are, however, some issues of concern that need to be brought to the notice of the institution. These are as follows:
*The college should have basic facilities like canteen, health centre and hostel.
*There is a dire need for having a carrier consultancy cell, the students grievance cell.
*Competent teachers and departments should be encouraged to offer consultancy. This exposure will not only enrich the faculty but also be of immense help to the students.
*There is an urgent need for automation by computerisation of administrative records, students admission records and the library.
*Computer and Internet facilities should be extended in each of the departments as well as library. Also online facilities like Inflibnet and Delnet should also be provided in the library for use of students/faculty.
*There is need for providing intercom facilities in the Principals office, college office, departments and the library.
*The college should have a women cell to take care the needs and requirement of the girls students. Besides, a seperate common room for the girls shold also be provided.
The peer team is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution to initiate the quality enhancement strategies towards further growth and development.
