Banki College, Banki, an affiliated college under Utkal University, Bhubaneswar covering a total area of 19.67 acres, was established in December 1961 for the holistic development of learners' personality, making them intellectually sound, morally upright, socially committed and to bring the benefit of education to the door steps of the rural people. The college has been granted autonomous status by the UGC in 2006. The college has 2, 13,270sq.ft built up area. The college was having strength of 1645 students in the Faculty of Science, Arts and Commerce during the session 2005-06. During the last two batches the drop out rate was 22.64%and 29.83% respectively and the success rate was 86.75% and 88.36%. The financial category of the college is Grant-in-aid. The college has UGC recognition under 2f since April 1966 and under 12 B since July 1972.
There are 79 members in the teaching faculty, out of which 17 have Ph.D., 15 have M.Phil. and 46 have PG' as the highest qualification besides one temporary and 2 part-time teachers. There are 42 members in the administrative staff and 20 in the technical staff.

The Peer Team carefully perused and analysed the SSR submitted by the institution. During the institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited departments and facilities and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were visited.
The peer team also interacted at length with the members of governing council, the Principal, faculty members, alumni, administrative staff, students and their parents. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by NAAC, the peer team has taken a value judgement. The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are given in the following pages:
Section II: Criterion-Wise Analysis
Criterion 1 : Curricular Aspects
Being affiliated to the Utkal University, the college follows the syllabi prescribed by the parent University for Arts, Science and Commerce faculties in the annual pattern. It offers a number of UG, Vocational and Hons. programmes. The college offers a number of subject combinations and students can opt any subject combination out of those available.
The programmes are flexible enough to offer the students time frame matching student convenience, horizontal mobility, elective options and non -core options for their benefits. The existing curricula are reviewed annually by the University and updated from time to time as and when necessary.
Vocational course in Industrial Fish and Fishery was approved by the UGC in 2002-03. The college is also offering career oriented add-on courses like Office Mgt. & Secretarial Practice, Marketing Advertising and Accounting System. Certificate course on Food Preservation and Processing in collaboration with Ministry of Food Nutrition, Govt. of India had also been started. Entrepreneurship Development Programme for women is also organised in collaboration with Small Industry Service Institute, Govt. of India. The college requires six months to one year to introduce a new programme of study. University designs the curriculum through Board of Studies and Academic Council in which the senior members of staff play an important role.
The college follows academic audit by the university. The university appoints a committee to visit the college before granting affiliation to any specific subject. Being an affiliated college it has to follow the curricula of the University. While the updated curricula of the University have been prepared on the basis of UGC's model curricula it takes care of the quality aspects of the education. Various co-curricular activities of the college help the students for their overall performance. The mission of the Institution to achieve excellence in education is reflected in the curriculum of the University and facilities provided by the Institution.
The college may start more Computer and IT based as well as Management courses like BCA/B.Sc.(IT), BBA etc. and also start some MA and M.Sc. courses. The college after getting autonomous status has started B.Sc. Biotechnology course although no admission could be made in the current session.
Feedback on programs and interaction with academic peers and employers is one of the ways to be relevant in the changing context. Feedback given by inspection teams of the Parent University and UGC are certainly helpful, but not enough. The college could establish a formal system of feedback on programs as well as interaction with academic peers and employers, preferably with an external expert facilitating the proceedings.
Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
The students are selected for admission to various courses on the basis of their academic record. However, the admission to honours courses is conducted after counselling. The college publishes updated prospectus every year for information and guidance of students for admission to various courses.
The college has made provisions for assessing students' knowledge and skills for a particular programme just after admission like class test for honours students. The college provides bridge/remedial courses to the educationally disadvantaged students. After pre-test and test examinations the poor performers are identified department-wise and the departments take special interest in updating the knowledge of educationally backward students. The advanced learners are encouraged to go ahead of the rest through handouts, journals, department seminars and special care.
The college encourages the teachers to make a well planned teaching plan. Teachers prepare lesson plans at the beginning of the session. At the start of each session, the syllabi is unitized according to teaching schedule. Lesson plan is prepared keeping in view the syllabi and available teaching days. The completion of courses is monitored by the Principal by convening departmental meetings and staff council meetings.
The college encourages the departments to supplement the lecture method of teaching with other learner-centred methods through seminars, project assignments, study tours/field trips, surveys, exhibitions, educational CDs etc.
The college observed 240 working days and 180 teaching days during the previous year. 90% classes are taught by full-time teachers. The ratio of full-time teachers to part-time teachers is 80:03 and the ratio of teaching to non teaching staff is 80:62 during the last two years. The evaluation methods are communicated to the students at the beginning of the year and are clearly mentioned in the prospectus and college calendar. The staff council reviews the performance of the students and discusses the remedial measures to be taken. The Principal also convenes departmental meetings on the issue.
New faculty is recruited through Staff Selection Board, Govt. of Orissa. The teaching positions are sanctioned as per work load prescribed by the Department of Higher Education, Govt. of Orissa. However, the Management (G.B.) can appoint teachers on adhoc basis and for self financing courses. The college has the freedom and the resources to appoint and pay temporary/adhoc teaching staff.
The college follows the self appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the faculty in teaching, research and extension. As per govt.rules, every teacher submits a self appraisal which forms part-I of the CCR form. The college collects student evaluation information on campus experience. The college has conducted a few seminars / workshops during the last few years. 31 teachers got the benefit of the faculty development programmes during the last two years. Three of the faculty members have received teaching awards. Many members of the teaching staff had attended seminars/conferences/workshops as participants at National level, and a few have also acted as resource person at national level.
The college encourages the teachers to participate in faculty development programs. Now the college needs to take the next step and encourage the teachers to participate as resource persons at these seminars and also organize more seminars, workshops etc. in the college.
The faculty contributes to the administration of the college in many ways e.g. as members of the different Committees, cells, societies and unions nominated by the Principal. Some of the teaching innovations are like use of overhead projector, slide projector, maps &charts, seminar presentation, organising study tour/field trips, Entrepreneur Development Programme (EDP) and awareness programmes etc. For teaching and research linkages have been established with Central Institute for Freshwater Aquaculture , Berhampur University, Institute of Life Sciences, CRRI, CIFT, CIFNET, RMRC, State Pollution Board etc. However the college is yet to establish more national and international linkages for teaching and/or research.
Departmental societies can be formed which can facilitate holding inter and intra-department competitions like debates, paper reading contests etc. Inter college competitions may also be organised to give better exposure to the students.
Criterion -III - Research, Consultancy and Extension
The institution has limited scope to promote research culture among the faculty and student's. Being an under graduate college the students are not involved in active research. Out of the 78 teachers, the college has already 17 Ph.Ds., 15 M.Phils. and 46 PGs. The teachers are provided study leave for research on demand. 35 % teachers are engaged in guiding research scholars. One full time research scholar and 09 part time research scholars had been registered by the teachers of the college.
Four faculty members had been awarded Ph.D. during the last five years. Presently the college has three on-going minor research projects which are funded by the UGC. Some faculty members are writing popular articles in news papers, working for Radio and Television and involved in other extension activities.
The college is yet to make arrangements to provide financial support to research students and publicise the expertise available for consultancy services.
The college has designated a person for extension activities on additional charge. The various extension activities of the college are community development, Health and hygiene awareness, Social work, Medical Camps, Tree Plantation, AIDS awareness and environment awareness. Outreach programmes such as Flood relief, Population education programmes, Safe drinking water have been carried out by the college. The students and teachers are encouraged to participate in extension activities by emphasising the significance of such activities. The college plans and works for the extension activities along with NGO's and GO's and a training programme on Leather, Coir, and Bamboo was conducted in collaboration with NGO- Anchalika Adibasi Harijan Kalyana Samiti, Banki. The college also provides training on food preservation, fashion designing, interior designing etc.
National and International collaborations could go a long way to enhance educational quality of the college. With this goal in mind, the college could make efforts to generate funds for research. Getting financial assistance for research would further encourage the faculty to engage itself in research.
Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Process
The college has a campus area of 19.67 acres having a built up area of 2,13,270 sq.ft.. The physical facilities include 36 class rooms, 38 labs, boys hostel, girls hostel, guest house, reading room, auditorium, gymnasium, Staff quarters, NCC rooms for boys and girls, separate boys and girls common room and different play grounds.
The college plans to meet the need of augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth with the help of available adequate facilities. In future if new programmes are introduced, the college can handle the same by running it in a different shift. The infrastructure is maintained by the construction committee by engaging an engineer on part time basis.
The college makes efforts for optimum utilisation of its infrastructure facilities. The college encourages the use of the academic facilities by external agencies like guiding school teachers for organising exhibitions in schools and lending microscopes, slides and specimens to nearby schools for exhibition purpose. Efforts are made to keep the campus beautiful and pollution free through normal NCC and NSS camps, awareness programmes and tree plantation programmes etc.
The library has an advisory committee. There are 40,484 books besides, the library subscribes to 35 journals/periodicals, a reading room equipped with Internet facility. The library observes 240 working days and it works for 9 hours daily. The library has added 370 books and 02journals worth Rs.55585 during year before last and 847 books, 02 Journals worth Rs.155109 during the last year. The book bank facility is provided to the students. The library provides facility for reprography.
The college provides central computer facility. The working hours of the computer centre are from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Computers and their accessories are maintained by the teacher in-charge of computer centre. The college needs to make use of the services of inter-university centres like INFLIBNENT etc. The college provides first aid and medical consultancy services to the students, living in hostels. The various physical and infrastructure facilities available in the college are indoor stadium, play field, basket ball court, badminton court, multi gymnasium etc. Incentives are given to outstanding sports persons. Students participate in Inter-College sports and games including indoor games at the university level. During the last year two students participated at regional level and two students participated at national level.
Addition of more books other than text books, computer aided learning packages, medical facilities, additional hostel facilities etc. would go a long way to equip the college to perform its mission more efficiently.
It is praise worthy to note that a research journal titled, 'Current Concern' was published to promote research from the session 2004-05 basing it on a particular theme of current interest. Annual magazines and quarterly/monthly wall magazines are published inviting articles from students to promote their creative potential.
Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
The percentage of students appearing for the final year examination after completing the minimum period of study was about 90%. The progression to employment and further study (UG to PG) was 20%. Prominent positions like IAS, IPS, Doctors, Judges, Managers, Lecturers etc. are held by some of the alumni. The college maintains the record of alumni and keeps updating this record from time to time. Six students passed the UGC/CSIR/GATE examination. 04 students passed the TOFEL and 04 students passed the Orissa Administrative Service examination. The College publishes its prospectus every year. The contents of the prospectus comprise admission rules, course structure, subject combination, fee structure, general information etc. The financial aid is available to the students from the central govt., state govt and from other institutions. 49 merit scholarships, 07 Bidi scholarship,08 scholarships for physical handicapped, 274 scholarships for SC/ST and 40 Sanskrit scholarships were delivered during the last two years. 312 students received financial aid during the year before last and 296 student's during the last year in the form of merit scholarship, and free studentship.
The college has an employment cell and a placement officer. The function of the employment cell is notifying career opportunities, helping in personality development , conducting meetings on careers etc. The placement officer takes care to intimate vacancies, opportunities and different schemes available for students. The teachers participate in academic and personal counselling. 14 students got employed through placement service during the last two years in local/central/state government services.
The employment cell motivates the students to seek self -employment. The alumni association of the college meets once a year to discuss various aspects of development of the college. All policies and criteria of admission are made clear to the prospective students through college prospectus supplied with application form. The admission policy of the college with regard to overseas students is same as in the case of other students, but till date no overseas student has approached this college for admission.
The various recreational / leisure time facilities available to students are indoor games, students magazine, outdoor games, nature clubs, debate clubs, cultural programmes and audio video facilities. In addition periodicals, journals, quiz journals, development books in the reading rooms, garden, parts in the campus, pond site and riverside are available for the students.
The college needs to strengthen the employment cell. The college could make efforts to strengthen its alumni and get their assistance in furthering its educational goals.
Criterion VI : Organisation and Management
The college has an efficient internal co-ordinating and monitoring mechanism. Vice-Principal, Accounts Bursar, Administrative Bursar and Academic Bursar look after the internal discipline, accounts, establishment and running of classes respectively. In addition, there are vice-presidents/advisors of different societies who offer timely advice to the students for running the students bodies smoothly. The college principal appoints members of different committees and cells for smooth functioning of the college.
The college has an in-built mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff. The work efficiencies of employees in the departments is checked by the concerned head of the departments but Principal and Governing body are final authority. However,
The college needs to establish formal in-built mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff.
The college follows the academic calendar of the University and has formed a special committee for preparing the academic calendar/prospectus of the college.
The college follows the Govt. supported fee structure in BA/B.Sc./B.Com and self financing fee structure in PGDCA/DCA/Visual courses. There is no change in tuition fees during the last three years. The college has budget of Rs. 2,48,03,153.39 and the amount actually spent was Rs.2,53,72,838.05 during the last year under various heads of expenditure. The college has an internal audit mechanism.
The various welfare programmes available in the college are dispensary, indoor stadium, multigym, working labortories, plantation, research labortories, remedial coaching , career oriented courses, training programmes, etc.
The college has grievance redressal cell which deals with the grievances of the employees and others. There are three different committees constituted for redressal of grievances of students, boarders and employees.
Various loan facilities are available to the teaching and non-teaching staff members from bank through the college. This loan is sanctioned as term loan and instalment of repayment is deducted from monthly salary. The purchase of major items is made through committees by inviting quotations and finally principal approves for placement of order.
The college could do well to mobilise resources by better organising association of past students and by starting of more self financing and vocational courses in tune with time. Though process of computerisation of library and administration is initiated it needs to be completed on a priority basis.
Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
