Media coverage of Rayat Shikshan Sansthas Dada Patil Mahavidyalaya, Karjat Maharashtra, Maharashtra
NAAC report of Rayat Shikshan Sansthas Dada Patil MahavidyalayaSection 1: Preface
The Rayat Shikshan Sanstha, Satara, was founded in 1919 with an objective to provide education to slum dwellers, the rural poor and educationally disadvantaged classes. To accomplish these objectives the Sanstha established the Dada Patil Mahavidyalaya in the year 1964 at Karjat in Ahmednagar district. The college is located in the rural area comprising a large population of downtrodden and economically backward classes. The motto of this college is 'Education through Self-help'.
Besides this the management runs 39 Arts, Commerce, and Science senior colleges, 2 B. Ed. colleges, 1 engineering college, 432 secondary schools, 8 D. Ed. training colleges, 25 primary schools, 36 pre-primary schools, 74 cosmopolitan hostels, 8 Ashramshalas, 6 ITIs and 60 ancillary units. These are spread over 14 districts of Maharashtra and one district of Karnataka. It has over 19,000 employees. Perhaps this Sanstha is one of the leading educational organizations in South Asia.
Dada Patil Mahavidyalaya is a grant-in-aid multifaculty college affiliated to the University of Pune, Pune. It started the Arts faculty in 1964, the Commerce faculty in 1965 and Science faculty in 1981. Postgraduate programme in commerce was started in 1981, M.A. in English in 1989 and M.A. in Hindi in 1991. It gained permanent affiliation in 1991.
The college is housed in its own building in an area of 3.15 hectares with a built up area of 27,475 sq. ft. The campus includes classrooms, departments, library, gymkhana, computer centre, canteen, hostel, botanical garden and playground. The management periodically reviews and monitors the requirements and physical facilities of the College.
The college has 37 permanent teachers, supported by 2 temporary teachers, Director of Physical Education and a Librarian. Among these 1 has Ph.D. degree and 10 teachers have M. Phil degree. It has 22 non-teaching supporting staff as per the pattern of staffing of the affiliating University and government of Maharashtra.
The college offers 3 Undergraduate and 2 Postgraduate programmes in Arts and Commerce faculties. There is a certificate course in MSCIT on a self-financing basis.
The college has in all 11 departments: 5 in the faculty of Science; 5 in Arts; and 1 in Commerce. The departments of Hindi, English and Commerce offer Postgraduate programmes.
The student enrollment in the current academic year is 751 in UG and 48 in PG and about 120 in certificate course. The male female ratio of students is 2:1.
The college volunteered for institutional accreditation by NAAC, Bangalore, and the necessary Self Study Reports were submitted in March 2003. The NAAC constituted the Peer Team comprising Dr. K.D. Vasava, former Vice Chancellor of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University, Ahmedabad, Gujarat as Chairman, and Dr. Ravi Korisettar, Professor of History and Archaeology of Karnatak University, Dharwad, Karnataka as member and Dr. Nirmala Jeyaraj, Principal, Lady Doak College, Madurai in Tamil Nadu as member convener.
The Peer Team visited the college on 17 and 18 December 2003. The team was ably assisted by Dr. Antony Stella, Adviser, NAAC.
The team held meetings with the Principal, Vice Chairman of the Sanstha and members of the Local Management Committee, faculty members, the Director of Physical Education, Librarian, supporting staff and also interacted with alumni and parents of students as well as representative group of students.
The team went around the academic complex, administrative section, library, computer centre, playground, guest house, canteen, gymkhana, hostel, assembly hall and other facilities.
Based on the pre-visit scrutiny and verification of facts mentioned in the SSR and a detailed on the spot inspection of the infrastructure and extensive discussion with the concerned the team brings out the following criterion-wise observations.
Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The mission of the college is to educate students from economically backward rural areas irrespective of their caste, creed and religion to help them develop into self-reliant, value-oriented and socially responsible citizens.
The college offers 3 UG programmes in Arts, Commerce and Science and 3 Postgraduate programmes in Arts and Commerce. It runs a certificate programme - MSCIT of Maharashtra State and a computer literacy course. There is some degree of flexibility in the system with a provision to opt for elective or non-core courses favouring horizontal mobility.
Being an affiliated college, the teachers do not have a direct role in curriculum design. However, a couple of teachers get opportunity to serve on the Boards of Studies and Faculty of the University and contribute to updating of syllabus and redesigning of curriculum.
The college takes special care through their 'labour scheme' to address the need of the economically backward students.
It may be worthwhile for the departments to take steps for the introduction of more job-oriented courses. Certificate courses could be offered to equip the students with appropriate skills required to enhance their employability in the local/regional context.
Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
Teachers are recruited to the college as per the norms of the UGC and State Government. Students are admitted through a single-window system and the process is governed by the guidelines of the University. The principal is assisted by an Admission Committee, consisting of two teachers from each discipline.
The teacher student ratio is 1:20 and the college works for about 240 days a year.
The teachers play positive role in addressing the needs of the students. The college provides bridge courses in English, Economics, Accountancy, Mathematics, Physics and Chemistry for those students who are educationally disadvantaged, offering extra coaching classes in addition to regular teaching hours.
Teachers are encouraged to prepare term-wise teaching plans and this is monitored by the concerned HOD/Principal. Teachers are required to submit a monthly report of portions taught and are encouraged to adopt innovative teaching methods involving the use of AV aids, maps and charts.
Study tours are also conducted periodically. The teachers may be encouraged to adopt more innovative teaching methods.
Though the college follows the annual system of examinations, unit tests are given in the first and second terms in addition to model examinations. The test schedules are given to students printed in the college calendar-cum-prospectus. The test performance is shared with the students so as to enable them to improve. Thus the evaluation methods adopted by the college pave the way for continuous improvement.
The college organises seminars and workshops periodically under the University's Quality Improvement Scheme and encourages them to participate in the Faculty Improvement Programme. More members of the faculty could be enthused to participate in national level seminars and workshops.
The inter-library borrowing system is available for the faculty involved in research.
The members of the faculty are required to submit Performance Appraisal Reports annually and this is reviewed by the Principal. General feedback from students is obtained, analysed and steps taken to address the needy areas.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The University curriculum adopted by the college does not lend itself to research activity of students. A few teachers have engaged in research earning M. Phil (7 ) and Ph.D. (1). The Management encourages them to avail UGC fellowships and sanctions study leave and travel grants. Two of the faculty members who have received funding from UGC under the Minor Research Scheme deserve to be appreciated. Currently 4 teachers have engaged themselves in part time research leading to Ph.D. A couple of teachers have published scientific articles in international journals and magazines. A separate research committee has been constituted to promote faculty research. Steps should be taken by the college to further promote research culture among the faculty, which in turn might motivate students to involve in some research on a voluntary basis. The area of research needs to be strengthened further so that more faculty members will involve in research projects leading to publications.
The college has a variety of extension activities involving students in community development programmes through NSS and NCC. AIDS awareness and environmental awareness programmes are periodically arranged to sensitise students. The college was involved in organising the Mahila Shibir to bring awareness about issues of women's health. NSS, NCC and sports students arrange rallies, blood donation camps, health awareness camps and raise funds for national calamities such as earthquakes in Gujarat and Maharashtra. The students improve and develop their talents in co-curricular activities by organising various competitions. The college has a committee for competitive examinations and a Guidance Bureau for counselling. Some teachers are involved in extension services to farmers and guide them about the nature of soils and quality of water.
The NSS and NCC units of the college have been very active involving in varied extension activities. Some cadets have participated in the Republic Day parade and Prime Minister's guard of honour in 2003.
The college may also explore the possibility of linking with NGOs opening up opportunities for collaboration and consultancy services.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The master plan shows the intents of the management to make the college self-sufficient that would meet the continuing demand for space in view of the growing increase in the number of students and expanding areas of knowledge. It is suggested that the projected expansion of the building be completed in the near future. The administrative blocks should be a priority, followed by residential facility to the principal and the multipurpose hall. This would alleviate the pressure on the available space for conduct of activities. The Building Committee looks after the infrastructure, its upkeep (particularly class room and laboratories) and its maintenance.
Efforts are being made to make optimal use of the infrastructure and the organization of work in two shifts does indicate the pressure on the available space and emphasize the need for expansion of the building. During off-hours and holidays, the infrastructure is made available to the outside organizations for private functions. The campus has a well laid out garden and is well maintained.
The college has a separate library building with adequate space (3290 sq. ft.) for stack, reading rooms (both for boys and girls) and magazine section. Presently it has over 46,000 (text books, reference books, periodicals, magazines and journals). The Library Committee looks after the needs of acquisition and proper use of the books, periodicals, magazines and journals. The book bank facility serves the needy. Computerization of the library is a must, which will go a long way in improving the quality and efficiency of the service. This will also help improve the interconnection with the libraries outside the college.
The college has a separate moderately equipped computer centre. However, the number of computers presently available are too small. Steps may be taken to enhance the facility. While six of the departments in the faculty of science have a computer each the social science departments also need such a facility.
There is need to explore the possibility of establishing link with more libraries to cater to the needs of rural students.
The college needs a separate health centre facility to the students and staff, with visiting doctors.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
Student performance at the qualifying examinations is quite high up to 86%, the drop out is low 7-8%. Although this may vary from time to time is a sure indication of the effectiveness of teaching, learning and discipline.
The rural students will be greatly benefited if the college takes steps to offer coaching for competitive examinations and other eligibility tests.
The college publishes its prospectus every year revealing increasing opportunities for higher education in rural areas.
Financial assistance is being provided to students through several schemes. The 'earn and learn' scheme is a good welfare measure, which partially meets the cost of education of the rural poor and backward class students. More than 90% of the students are supported by government welfare schemes. Labour schemes for the economically backward classes to help them earn while learning is a noble initiative of the institution.
There is an Alumni Association active in the affairs of the college.
Good indoor and outdoor games facilities are available, including multi-gym facility.
The college is taking efforts to develop the overall personality of the students through NSS, NCC and cultural activities.
There are 2 programme officers for NSS having 200 volunteers (120 boys and 80 girls). These two units have successfully carried out community development projects in the catchment area of the college. There are 116 NCC cadets (100 boys, 16 girls). Each year on an average 4-5 cadets pass B Certificate and at least 5 cadets pass C Certificate. The participation of NCC cadets and its related activities are also in keeping with the tradition of the College. While the NSS volunteers have carried out rainwater harvesting projects the NCC cadets have represented at the national level events.
Criterion VI: Organisation and Management
The college administration has a hierarchy of officers with evenly distributed responsibilities. This has involved the teachers in sharing the academic and administrative responsibilities. External agencies have no role in the administration and the heads have independence in decision making. The monitoring cell looks after the work efficiency of the staff and prepares the annual calendar of events.
Recruitment of the faculty is done as per the norms and procedures stipulated by the UGC and State Government. The non-teaching staffs are given professional training as and when required.
There is a regular auditing system in the college. Periodical audit of accounts and inspection of the college is done by AGO and the Sanstha. The increasing budgetary requirements for the college reflects its growth in the positive direction and is reflection of a sound position. Office automation is yet to fully carried out.
The Purchase Committee takes care of purchases for the college.
Welfare programmes for students and staff deserve appreciation.
A Grievance Redressal Cell has been established recently.
The Rayat Sevak Cooperative Bank provides loans to the staff, a unique arrangement indeed. The kutumb kalyana yojana is a noble service provided by the management in the event of death of an employee.
Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The following features deserve special mention.
Internal quality check is conducted periodically and assures the quality of service.
The faculty is fully involved in the process of quality management.
The library Advisory Committee, the cultural department (in charge of extra mural activities, the arts circle), NSS, NCC are active and give vibrancy to the academic atmosphere of the college. In addition there is a newly constituted total quality management cell.
Regular assessment of students is in practice,
In accordance with the mission of the Sanstha the college authorities make it possible for students from the downtrodden and economically backward communities to enter into college education by extending full financial support and help them earn their degrees. The college encourages the needy students through earn and learn schemes and helps them by collecting donations in the form of money and learning equipments.
The teachers contribute Rs. 20/- per member towards 'Teachers' Poor Boys Fund' for benefit of poor students.
The college practices the concept of value education for the students through different programmes/activities. The college provides ample opportunities to the students to develop all round personality through its various co-curricular and extra curricular activities.
Remedial coaching and training for competitive examinations are provided on a regular basis.
The college encourages the members of the faculty to actively engage themselves in research and helps improve their academic qualifications.
The Sanstha has an inbuilt mechanism for internal quality check for controlling financial matters and academic performance. The college follows self-appraisal system to assess the performance of the teachers.
The management implements different types of welfare schemes/programmes for both employees and students.
The Rayat Sevak Cooperative Bank provides loans to the staff, a unique arrangement indeed. The kutumb kalyana yojana is a noble service provided by the management in the event of death of an employee. The management also provides freeships to the wards of the staff members. Financial support for medical requirements is taken care of.
Section 3: Overall Analysis
The above analysis indicates that the college over a period of 40 years has been successful in accomplishing its goals for self-reliance and socio-economic transformation as well as in promoting meaningful academic atmosphere in the rural area. Though the Peer Team recorded its observations, commendations and recommendations at appropriate criterion-wise assessment in the above sections, it would, however, like to suggest the following for a holistic development of the college.
The achievement of this college in the area NCC is highly commendable. It has distinguished itself at the national level with 2 or 3 students participating every year at the Republic Day parade. In 2002-2003 one girl cadet represented the state in the RDC parade and Prime Minister's rally. A remarkable achievement of the year 2002-03 is the placement of 58 NCC cadets in army, police, navy, ITBM and BSF services.
The Team appreciates the practice of interlibrary loan and book bank facilities available for the needy students.
Short term courses such as vermi composting, mushroom culture, tailoring, and beautician courses suitable to the local needs may be offered to students to enhance their employability and income-generating capability.
Feasibility of introducing Postgraduate courses in Arts and Science may be explored.
There is need for strengthening the library by procuring more number of scientific journals and popular news magazines. Reprographic facility may be added.
Computerization of the library may be undertaken in a phased manner.
The college may plan to augment the library by installing computers with access to internet.
Career guidance programmes as well as training for competitive examinations are to be strengthened and further activated.
Efforts may also be made to undertake office automation expeditiously.
Attempts may be made to encourage the faculty to take up small research projects suitable to the local context either individually or as a department in collaboration with NGOs.
Conventional teaching may be supplemented by the use of modern audio-visual aids. Presently 1 OHP and 1 slide projector are being shared by a couple of departments.
Class room furniture needs to be replaced in a phased manner.
It is suggested to equip the AV room with adequate facilities including a LCD projector for power point presentations.
The Alumni Association needs be actively involved in the development of the college.
A separate health center may be established with basic facilities on the campus.
The college may constitute a committee for Prevention of Sexual Harassment as per the directives of the government.
Steps may also be taken to open a branch of the Sanstha's Consumer cooperative store on the campus of the college.
The college may take special efforts to improve the communication skills in English.
The Peer Team thanks the Principal, faculty and supporting staff for extending full cooperation to the Team during its visit to the college. The college enabled the Team to make accreditation exercise a pleasant task.
The Team is also grateful to the NAAC for giving the members this opportunity to visit the college.
