Section 2: Criterion-Wise Analysis
Criterion 1: Curricular Aspects
The college has a well-defined goal and objective which is to impart quality education at the lowest cost as per the State Govt. norms. As an affiliated college of Devi Ahilya University Indore, the college follows the syllabi prescribed by the university for the Arts, Science and Commerce programmes at both Under-Graduate and Post Graduate levels, in the annual pattern.

Computer Science, B. Com, Computer Application and B. Sc. Microbiology. The mission of the college is to prepare the students with good academic skills and persons with sound mind and body. In this context the programmes offered are relevant to the mission. The curricula are unitized. To introduce a new programme within the regulations of the present university system, the college takes one year. The teachers who are members of the respective Boards of Studies of the University play a vital role in updating the syllabi and making them more relevant to development in the various areas.
All the laboratories need improvement, moderation and maintenance. The laboratory space provided is adequate for some subjects. Some rooms have seepage problem in the roofs. Some rooms are also utilized classrooms cum departmental office.
The laboratory and field work in the science subjects are not linked to needs of the emerging areas of science & technology and industry or society.
Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The institute has transparent admission procedure. There is no provision for assessing students' knowledge and skills for a particular programme after admission. However, remedial classes and bridge courses are taken up by teachers of all departments. The teachers look after the academic progress of their students through remedial and bridge courses. Tutorial classes are also arranged for weaker students .Advanced learners are encouraged through lectures by guest professors. Apart from the regular class room teaching, seminars are organized at regular intervals to motivate the students to higher studies. The Teaching and learning process is further enriched by the use of video cassettes, CD's etc. Students are also encouraged to participate in intercollegiate seminars, quizzes and debates. Personality development is emphasized in all activities.
The working days of the college are impressive (270). However, the teaching days of the college is 180 days, a bit is in the lower side (usually 190 to 210 days). The percentage of total budget allocated to academic programme is less. The ratio of teaching to non-teaching staff is 68:34. The university follows annual pattern as per the guidelines of the university. The faculty is encouraged to attend refresher courses and seminars to update their knowledge with the recent developments in their subject areas. The college has the freedom to appoint temporary / adhoc teachers with financial support of Janbhagidari Samiti.
The number of faculty participating in seminars, conferences etc. is to be improved (at present only 10 in last two years). The college has self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the teachers. More number of teachers should be encouraged to go for higher studies on study leave. Linkage with national and international level institutions of learning needs to be established. Budget allocation on academic programmes needs enhancement (at present it is 20% approximately).
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
About 10% of the faculties are involved in research. There is 1 sponsored research project in the institute. The teachers are encouraged to publish research papers in national journals. The faculties have so far published 58 research papers in the last five years. The extension activities of the college is a part of NSS and NCC.

The college has good culture of encouraging faculty members to take up research projects and guiding research scholars. The college encourages faculties to publish research papers and books.
The students and teachers needs to be encouraged to participate in extension activities relating to social needs. The college is mostly involved in teaching. However, study leave is sanctioned for higher studies .There is scope for further utilization of student potential for extension activities and outreach programmes especially in the areas of community development.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has a well defined plan to enhance the infrastructure facility through Janbhagidari Samittee and State Govt. assistance. The college has started the construction of a new building which will help in providing more space for laboratory and class rooms . The campus needs regular maintenance.

The outstanding sports persons of football and cricket are encouraged by providing sports kits at 50% cost .The students of the college participated at the State and Regional Sports Meets. At present there is hostel facility for 60 students but there is no mess facility . Janbhagidari Scheme is a source of Strength to augment the financial resources.
Looking at the programmes offered, computerization of the central library is necessary. However, the work has started. Some facilities like Reprography, Audio Video Cassettes and Internet are necessary to keep pace with the developments in both science and technology and humanities. The faculty needs to be encouraged to take up more sponsored projects to augment the facilities of the departments. The numbers of computers in the departments needs to be increased. A work shop and a centre for instrumentation is also a basic necessity for the science departments. Hostel facility should be enhanced and encouraged as it provides a place to learn to live and adjust with other fellow students. This helps to develop good understanding among each other. The annual maintenance is done with the help of fund provided by the Govt. of M.P. The college undertakes maintenance work under the supervision of PWD. The maintenance of sports facilities has to be improved.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression

Alumni association came in to existence in November, 2002 and it is helping in terms of career opportunities, resource generation, course modification etc.

Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The students are encouraged to participate in tests & seminars and group discussion. NCC and NSS activities are in the areas of community development and extensions activities.

More course options to may be introduced to increase flexibility in course combinations keeping in mind the latest trends and societal needs.
