A unit of 100 students in National Service Scheme is running regularly in the college since 1984. The volunteers of the N.S.S. work with dedication. 'Development of the personality through social serviceâ€ is the motto of N.S.S. The constructive personality of a student is developed through social service of N.S.S. It is very aptly implemented in the institutionâ€™s N.S.S. unit. The Unit of our college was declared the best unit of Dewas District for consequently three years in the year 1997,98 & 99. Students/ volunteers worked for the eradication of social evils through various movements, example - Pulse Polio, Total Literacy Programme, Aids, Removal of Polythene bags and many relevant issues. They worked very constructively in terms of sanitation, water conservation, water recharging and water shed mission of Govt. of M.P. By, blood donation camp and 10-day residential camp in rural areas they set an example for others and exhilarate the importance of social connectivity. Hence they as N.S.S. students proved the worth of being young and energetic in compliance of a number of social service and various activities. The volunteers get certificate of Honor through the University and State Government.
The Principal and faculties of the college decided that we must shoulder some social responsibilities to bring changes in our socio-economic-environmental scenario. In terms of our commitments towards the society we enthused students to participate in various programs, movements and missions carried out by the district administration, Dewas, NGOs and other govt. agencies. Pulse Polio, primary education, health and hygiene, roof water harvesting, ground water conservation, pollution and awareness towards hazardous impacts of polythene are some examples in which faculties and students of this college have participated at large. Roof water harvesting was the programme, which was the need of the time and town. Since the year 1999-2000 college has been organizing these programmes. For public participation we have carried out the whole campaign successfully. Near about 2000 house owners were motivated by us to adopt the technique to minimizing the problem and scarcity of water in our city. The specially designed filter for roof water harvesting was a technical innovation of Dewas, which helps filter, purify and add rainwater to aquifer through the tube wells and dug wells. During last fifteen years water level has been depleting continuously but with our cumulative efforts the ground water level has increased for the first time during the last many years by two meters (as per report of C.G.W.B.). There is no other example in our knowledge of the similar nature where any other educational institute has involved itself for a social cause in such a large scale in this state.
Efforts of our students and faculties have drawn attention of the District Collector, local industrialists, institutions and the citizens, towards infrastructural development of this college. Some examples of their contribution are listed below:
Construction of cycle stand.
Digging of tube wells.
Construction of teaching classrooms (contribution from Sansad Nidhi, Vidhayak Nidhi).
Contribution from M.P. state Janbhagidari Nidhi for construction of computer lab and lecture hall.
Contribution for installation work of water cooler and purifier.
One of the most important vital aspect of education is to make the students sincere and responsible citizens are college makes efforts to inculcate civic responsibilities among the students so that when they step out of college and seek to take part and their place in society they may not experience any inconvenience.

Media coverage of Government Girls Degree College, Dewas Madhya Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh
NAAC report of Government Girls Degree CollegeIntroduction
Dewas is situated at the threshold of a triangle formed by three major cities of Madhya Pradesh namely, Indore, Ujjain and Bhopal on the National Highway No.3 (Mumbai - Agra). Government Girls' Degree College, Dewas was established in 1984. It was established with the motto: 'Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye' which means 'Knowledge alone Liberates'. Keeping this in mind, the main objective of the college is: 'educate a girl and educate a whole generation'. The college is offering three year integrated undergraduate programmes leading to B.A., B.Sc., B.H.Sc. and B.Com. Degrees. The college is affiliated to Vikram University, Ujjain. The college is operating in the existing building since the year 1992. The college functions from 10.40 a.m. to 5.20 p.m., Monday to Saturday, six days a week, optimizing the physical infrastructure. The Department of Higher Education, Government of Madhya Pradesh runs this college, along with many other UG and PG colleges in the State.
The college is recognized by the UGC under 2(f) in November 1991 and 12B in April 1992 of the UGC Act. Its location is semi-urban, the campus area being 7.44 acres. It runs 4 UG programmes, all under grant in aid. Along with these, it runs B.Sc. (Computer Science) and B.Com. (Computer Application) under self-financing mode and B.Com. (Vocational) in Tax Practices and Procedures under the U.G.C. Aided Scheme. It follows annual system. Its student roll for the academic year 2005-2006, is 613 of which 333 are General, 80 SC, 15 ST, and 185 are belonging to OBC category. The faculty comprises of 18 permanent (of which One is on medical leave, one on study leave and one post is vacant) and 2 under Janbhagidari Scheme (for self financed computer courses). Faculty wise teaching staff members are: 6 in Science, 1 in Home Science, 8 in Arts, and 3 in Commerce. Of these, 18 ( 7 Male and 11 Female) permanent staff members, nine have Ph.D. degree and one has M. Phil. Degree. The administrative staff is 5. (1 Head Clerk, 1 Accountant, 1 UDC, 2 LDC) and 4 persons in Class IV staff category. The post of Librarian is vacant. Technical staff includes 5 Lab Technician and 5 Lab Attendants. In the year 2004-05, the college had 180 working days. The number of books in the library is 10,101 and the number of journals cum periodicals subscribed to is 10. The college has established laboratories for computer and different courses of science and home science, with the required equipments and peripherals. It has a vehicle-parking shed, play grounds and common purpose hall.
The college spent Rs.68,49,833 in the year 2004-05 as revenue expenditure for 697 students resulting into unit cost or cost of education per student of Rs. 9,828. The unit cost per student considering only salary component is Rs. 9631 and for all other expenses excluding salary works out to be Rs. 197 per student per year. It has all the characteristics of a government run and managed affiliated college: appointment of staff, transfer of jobs within the State, benefits like State Government employees, its curriculum is the one provided by the university; its final examinations are those given and marked by the university, its degrees are those conferred by the university.
The college initiated the process of introspection of its programmes and activities to identify the strengths and weaknesses. On the basis of which, it prepared a Self-Study Report in the standard format provided by the NAAC, and submitted it in June - 2004. A Peer Team was constituted by the NAAC for the purpose of visiting the college, its composition being: Prof. Hira Adyanthaya (Former Vice-Chancellor of Tilak Maharashtra University, Pune) Chairperson, Dr. S. V. Kamath (Principal, Dr. A.V. Baliga College of Arts and Science, Kumta) and Prof. B.A. Prajapati (Professor and Head of the Department of Commerce & Management, S. K. School of Business Management, Hemachandracharya North Gujarat University, Patan), Member Co-coordinator. The Team visited the college on 1st, 2nd and 3rd September 2005. Prior to that, it had gone through the report in all its details. During the visit it made an on-the-spot assessment of its (1) curricular aspects, (2) teaching-learning and evaluation, (3) research, consultancy and extension, (4) infrastructure and learning resources, (5) student support and progression, (6) organisation and management, and (7) healthy practices. The Team also looked up its facilities and support services and interacted with all its constituents and stakeholders: the Principal, the faculty, the students, the administrative staff, the alumni and the parents.
Based on the above exercise, the Peer Team assessed the college. Keeping in mind the commendable features and issues of concern, the report was prepared. The Peer Team shared it with the Principal and corrections were made wherever necessary. At the end it held an exit meeting in which a copy of the draft report was formally handed over to the Principal.
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The college offers the B. A. (combination of three subjects from Political Science, Sociology, English Literature or Home Science, Economics or Music and Hindi literarature), B.Com.(General), B.Com.(Computer Application), B.Com.( vocational in Tax - practices and Procedure), B.Sc. (two combination of three subjects in each group of: Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics or Chemistry, Botany and Zoology), B.Sc.(Computer Science), B.Sc.(Home Science) at undergraduate level affiliated to the Vikram University, Ujjain. All the courses follow the syllabi prescribed by the affiliating university under a basic course scheme designed by Central Board of Studies, Department of Higher Education, Government of Madhya Pradesh as unified courses and offers internal options framed by the university at different levels. The college follows the university examination pattern covering the theory and practical evaluation proportions prescribed in that behalf. The college has hardly any direct role in framing the syllabus. The department takes one to two years in revising the syllabus. One teacher of English is a member of Central Board of Studies in English and Foundation Course. Three teachers in their capacity as the members of the Board of Studies of the university contribute in framing the syllabi.
There is no mechanism of academic audit in the college of its own except observing the norms prescribed by the university. The college has hardly any autonomy of offering multidisciplinary approach but can exercise the flexibility available within the university norms.
Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
Teaching learning is the most important core activity of a college. Being non-autonomous, it does not have much freedom in curriculum design. However, the college is free to strengthen its teaching-learning process, that is, the way of executing the curriculum its affiliating university has designed for it. The teaching - learning process begins with admission and ends with the university finals. Its admission norms are quite simple for government run grant-in-aid programmes, based on the academic performance. The students are admitted considering the eligibility criteria laid down by the university and the guidelines of the Department of Higher Education, Government of Mandhya Pradesh from time to time. It does not administer any straight post-admission tests to gauge the knowledge-skill level of the newly admitted. In order to equip the students better, the college conducts two internal tests on its own, though it does not carry any weightage in the final results. The individual teachers conduct extra lectures for improving conceptual clarity. But by no means, it can be called as 'remedial classes' as prescribed under the UGC Scheme in that behalf. The students of Home Science visit hospitals, health centers, etc. as a part of the field visit/practical studies.
The syllabus is split into units and unit-wise teaching plans are prepared by the faculty members. Teaching diary is maintained by the teachers and a regular review of the progress is made and in the event of a shortfall, make-up lectures are organized, often implying academic teamwork. Some teachers are using OHP while most of others follow conventional lecture method.
As to the examinations and the modes of evaluation, the students are informed in advance, in fact from the time of their admission. The college organizes internal tests and based on these tests the academic counseling is done to the individual student for improving the performance. The college does not have adequate core faculty of its own for many courses. The major cause in this context is too much of delays in recruitment, transfer, etc being the Government run college. However, the college is making all the sincere efforts to get the faculty under the 'Janbhagidari Scheme'. For some courses visiting and guest faculty supplements the core faculty, from the neighboring Government colleges, which is a good practice.
The teachers are appointed as per the norms. Most of the teachers are regularly participating in seminars, conferences and workshops. Similarly, almost all have attended the UGC sponsored refresher and orientation courses, a mandatory requirement. The college has designed the system of the teachers' self-appraisal for assessing their day-to-day performance.
Some teachers have published articles in national level journals. One teacher each in Physics and Economics has published papers in international journals. If the students getting ranks in the university examination is considered as an indicator of the quality of the teaching-learning done in the college, then the college can claim credit, for there have been some university rank holder students.
The overall impact of teaching learning can be seen in the final year examination results which are conducted by the university. The third year results for the year 2004-05 are excellent, viz., for T.Y. B.A.- 100%, T.Y.B.Com.-100.%, T.Y.B.Sc- 92%, T.Y.B.H.Sc.- 100% etc. with a good number of first class. The results are commendable despite the fact that in some departments the faculty strength is less than the norms. The college has managed the gap by inviting visiting faculty from near by colleges as well as making use of its own retired faculty members.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The research activity is restricted to the work of individual teachers reading for M.Phil or Ph.D. Degree. There are nine teachers who have a Ph.D. degree and three are pursuing. One teacher has M.Phil. Degree. One teacher is a recognized guide for Ph.D. dissertation with Vikram University and one research scholar is working under his guidance. The college provides study leave, and at present one teacher is on study leave to complete her Ph.D. The college provides financial support for attending seminars and conferences. One teacher in Commerce faculty in his individual capacity is acting as a consultant and also as resource person to the different activities related to ground water conservation. Teachers from the departments of English, Hindi, Political Science and Commerce have publications in the national level journals and Economics and Physics have in international level journals. Some teachers are regularly participating in state as well as national level seminars, conferences and presenting papers.
The college has wide-ranging extension activities like- community development, social work, health and hygiene awareness, medical camp, adult education and literacy, blood donation camp, AIDS awareness, environment awareness, water conservation, organizing rallies for creating awareness, etc. The NSS unit of the college carries out most of these activities. The college has one unit of NSS with 50 volunteers. The college does not have its own NCC unit. The college regularly participates in youth welfare activities of the university.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has semi-urban setting and the management has taken all measures to optimize the resources for achieving its students' overall development. All the infrastructure facilities are provided in a campus covering 7.44 acres of land with boundary wall and pollution free environment. There are 9 lecture rooms, one computer lab, one music lab, five laboratory rooms for different departments, a staff common room, one rest room, NSS cum sports office, a lecture theatre, a multipurpose hall and other rooms for office administration and amenities including cabin for principal. All these facilities are created on ground and first floor of the building. Some part of the building is constructed with the help of 'Janbhagidari Samiti'- a public participation scheme. This includes MLA and MP grant. The college hostel is under construction for which financial assistance of Rs. 25.00 lakhs have been provided by the UGC under tenth five year plan.
