Narsee Monjee College of Commerce and Economics was established in June 1964 by the Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal (SVKM), Mumbai. It is a professionally managed Trust and is running many academic institutions under its Umbrella. The Self-Study Report States, 'although the College started by focusing on education to make students self-reliant and to prepare them for careers in the Commerce field, it gradually extended the scope of its activities to include the moulding of the overall personality of the students.' The College is a co-educational institution and is affiliated to University of Mumbai. The instituion receives grants-in-aid of the State Government.

The objective assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the Institution as well as the issues of concern and suggestions of the Peer Team are given in the ensuing pages.

Section II : Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion 1 : Curricular Aspects
N.M. College of Commerce and Economics, being an affiliated institution, follows the curricula and regulations prescribed by the University of Mumbai. Academic bodies like the Boards of Studies and faculties of the parent university design the Curricula for various courses. The University makes periodic revision of the syllabi and the College automatically implements the changes. The course structure prescribed by the University for B.Com. and B.M.S., provides for interdisciplinary/multi-disciplinary approach in teaching programmes and there is some degree of flexibility to the students in choosing optionals/electives. Within the framework of the University, the institution offers a varieties of optionals at the B.Com. and B.M.S. level for the benefit of students. At the B.Com. level, the college offers a number of career oriented optionals/electives like Financial Accounting and Auditing, Business Management, Advertising, Computer Systems and Application, Tourism and Travel Management and Tax Procedure and Practice in addition to many other new and useful core courses. However, the University of Mumbai has discontinued UGC Vocational subjects from the academic year 2003-2004.

The institution started Bachelor of Management studies from the academic year 1999-2000 as a self-financing course. As far as the B.M.S. Course is concerned, it is largely career oriented. The course aims at providing trained managers to industry and other business establishments. There are 15 clubs/associations which conduct various co-curricular activities in the College.

The institution needs to explore the possibility of introducing more electives/optionals at B.Com. as well as BMS level in order to provide wider choice to the students. The performance of students in the examinations is quite impressive.

The College offers quality education in the Commerce & Management streams. Curricular aspects are given priority.

Criterion II : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Teaching - learning and evaluation are carried out in a satisfactory manner in this institution. Admission to B.Com. and B.M.S. is transparent. Students are selected for B.Com. course on basis of merit and also observing the reservation rules. However, B.M.S. students are selected on the basis of the centralized Common Entrance Examination conducted by Mumbai University. The institution claims that it has one of the highest cut-off percentages while admitting students in both the B.Com. and B.M.S courses. The college follows annual system for B.Com. course and semester system for B.M.S. course.

The institution encourages teachers to make their teaching plans well in advance. Teachers are also encouraged to participate in various professional development programmes. The college provides bridge/remedial courses for slow learners and motivate the advanced learners to read good books and articles and also to take competitive examinations. Lecture method of teaching is supplemented by other learner-oriented methods like home assignments, websites for gathering information, guest lectures, project work, case study and group discussion. Modern teaching aids are also used by the teachers. The College communicates to the students regarding the evaluation method at the beginning of the academic year. The over-all performance of the student is assessed through a combination of continuous and annual examination. The College is very strict regarding the students' attendance.

The recruitment of the teachers is as per norms prescribed by the University and Maharashtra Government. In addition to Self-Appraisal of faculty, the students also evaluate the teachers. Interaction with the students reveal that the students are happy with teaching and evaluation in the college.

Criterion III : Research, Consultancy and Extension
Teaching and Research are complimentary to each other. N.M. College of Commerce and Economics seems to have understood the concept very well. The college has potential to initiate research activities. There are three teachers with Ph.D. and 4 teachers with M.Phil out of the total teaching staff 28. One teacher has registered as a full-time research scholar and 8 percent of the faculty are actively involved in research. Faculty members do guide the students in their project work. However, the focus in the college is primarily on teaching. The management needs to initiate to finance some socially relevant research projects at least with partial assistance or to encourage them to approach industry/business/institutional agencies for funding of the research project. A couple of teachers have also published their research work.

There is no consultancy in the college in the real sense. However, teachers do provide counseling to students which would help them in shaping their career. Turning the focus on socially relevant problems and also local problems may help to initiate consultancy.

Narsee Monjee College has been doing appreciable extension through its NSS volunteers and also associating teachers closely in this area. Various awareness programmes like blood donation, Aids Awareness, Literacy Drive, Anti-drug Addiction Campaign, Tree Plantation, Anti-Dowry Campaign and collecting donations for helping families of Kargil war victims, Gujrat Earthquake, Orissa Cyclone Relief etc., are commendable extension activities. The extension activities are also conducted with NGOs. The College conducted some workshops/seminars on behalf of the University. The college has scope for involving teachers in research and consultancy and expansion of outreach programmes through NSS unit of the College.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources
N.M. College is strategically located in Vile Parle (West), Mumbai and is housed in a three-storied building accommodating 30 Lecture halls, 3 computer laboratories with 50 computers, Administrative Office, Staff Room, etc. There is a good canteen also for catering to the needs of students and staff. There is a Health-cum-Counseling Center, which provides free counseling and treatment to staff and students. Hostel facilities are available to the students.

Sports facilities are also available to students both for outdoor and indoorgames. The gymkhana is well-equipped with table tennis tables, carom boards, chess boards and sports equipment for outdoor games such as Cricket, badminton, volleyball, hand ball, etc., The college hires the grounds at various locations in nearby suburbs for outdoor games.

Ishwarbhai Patel Library of the College has around 35,850 books catering to the needs of students and the teachers. In addition to books, the college also subscribes to 72 journals out of which 7 are international journals. The library has a TV Set, VCR, LCD educational video and audio cassettes, OHP, maps, reprographic machine etc.,

The Peer Team is happy to witness the impressive infrastructure available in the college. However, the renovation work of the college be completed at the earliest. In view of the increased and diversified needs of students, more books and periodicals be added to the library. Library needs to be computerized at the earliest.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
There are a number of student support programmes in N.M. College of Commerce and Economics. There are freeships and scholarships for meritorious needy students (Raman Brother Freeships and Ajit Datar Memorial Scholarship). During 2002-2003, as many 68 students in TY B.Com. were receiving state government merit scholarship. The college also provides financial aid to needy students from Students' Aid Fund.

The College does not publish the college prospectus. It just distributes the information sheet to students at the beginning of the academic year. However, the BMS Section of the College publishes updated prospectus regularly.

Teachers of the College provide counseling to students about the various career options and help them in preparation of competitive and professional examinations. There is no formal 'Placement Cell' as such in the college. Talks are also arranged by the college regarding career option/job opportunities etc.,

The College has maintained high pass percentage and the dropout rate is very low. The performance of the students in the qualifying examination is highly commendable and quite often few students get University Ranks. The college encourages students to participate in co-curricular and cultural activities. Many students of this College have won laurels for their outstanding performance in Sports and Cultural activities. Outstanding students in sports and cultural activities get due recognition in the college. The institution has an Alumni association called NaaM. Many of the graduates of this college are placed in good positions in different walks of life, especially in accounting profession. Student progression to higher studies is quite encouraging. However, the peer team feels that the college should make use of the Alumni Association effectively for the development of the college.

The Peer Team, after perusing the Self-Study Report and assessing the various academic and infrastructural facilities of Shri Vile Parle Kelavani Mandal's Narsee College of Commerce and Economics is very much impressed by the vision and goals of the institution in the cause of promoting higher education in the surrounding area. The College has made considerable progress in enlarging its academic activities by offering a variety of electives/optionals at the B.Com level.

The College has impressive infrastructure facilities. Organization and management of the college is efficient and transparent. The institution has earned a good reputation for imparting quality education.

While appreciating the accomplishments of the College, the Peer Team would like to suggest the following for the future development of institution.

*Infrastructural facilities, both academic and physical, need to be expanded for further progress of the institution. The renovation and repair work of the college needs to be completed at the earliest.

*The management may think of introducing Master's degree course in Commerce.

*The institution may think of introducing few more new self-financing courses.

*Only seven out of 28 faculty members hold research degrees. Teachers need to be encouraged to improve their academic qualifications under FIP or through institutional logistic support.

*Critical research and publication need to be encouraged in the institution.

*Teachers may be encouraged to participate and present papers in seminars/conferences. The college may also think of conducting few seminars/workshops every year.

*The per capita availability of books in the library needs to be strengthened by adding more books in different branches of commerce and management studies. A few more good periodical may be added to the library. Library should be computerized fully.

*Greater use of modern teaching aids in the classroom is recommended for effective teaching - learning process.

*Computer labs need to be expanded with more terminals and networking to cater the increasing demand for the use of computers in higher education. More internet facilities need to be provided for the benefit of students and staff. Few more latest computers may be added.

*Formal linkage with industry and financial institutions would help the college in its progress and academic ambience.

High scores push cut-offs for BMS, BMM up by 3%

Mumbai: While the degree colleges in the city declared their first merit list for admissions to degree courses on Monday, many were left disappointed as cut-offs to professional courses soared by as much as 3% compared to last year, with many colleges having cut-offs above 90%.

For instance, the cut-off for BMS touched the skies at HR College of Commerce in Churchgate with 92.3% (for science students). At Vile Parles NM college it was 91.60%. Last year, the cut-off at these colleges was around 88%.
Principal of DG Ruparel college Dr Tushar Joshi said, Though the pass percentage of students was only 69.72% this year at the HSC, number of students scoring in the 90s and 80s has increased. This is one of the reasons behind the soaring cut-offs. Also, most students apply only to top colleges for job-oriented or professional courses, so cut-offs will be above 90.
At DG Ruparel in Matunga, cut-offs were up by a shocking 8% for BMM.

Other popular self-financing courses such as BCom in banking and insurance, BCom in accounts and finance, BCom in financial markets, BSc in computer science or information technology also saw cut-offs ranging between 83% and 93% across colleges.Some top colleges, such as St Xaviers, Ruparel, Ruia, HR, Jai Hind or KC, observed only a marginal increase from 2010. For instance, while the BMM cut-offs at Ruia college increased by 0.34% to 2.84%, BSc bio technology saw a 2% rise, computer science went up by 1.67%. BSc IT (Maths) too saw a 3% rise, and in Bhavans college BSc computer science rose by 6% as compared to last year.

The first list cut-offs are high as most students apply to multiple colleges. Well get a correct picture by the second list. Even then, cut-offs will dip by maximum 2% for professional courses, as seats are limited, said TA Shiware, principal, Hinduja college. The second list will be out on June 22-23.

The faculty and atmosphere at NM College led me to be the confident professional that I am today. Yes, college hours were always fun and the crowd was great, but I never realised how well I was learning at NM. My three years there flew by with interesting presentations, projects and festivals. I can confidently say that I came out of the college, a new man.
Student speak
Saloni Jain, TYBCom
For me, NM College has been one roller coaster ride! I mean right from the very first year till now, my TYBCom year, Ive actually enjoyed each and every day of college. The best part about this college is its infrastructure- all the classrooms are air-conditioned! And believe me, thats something that makes you want to attend lectures

The crowd around in college is very homely. I did not have any difficulty in finding people that I gel with. Theres always someone you can talk to in spite of being new to a particular class. Umang, the annual college festival for NM, is the most exciting thing in the whole academic year. Theres an insane craze and a jolly atmosphere all through the month of August because of this. Not only Umang, but there are so many other active clubs in the college. I was in the Rotaract club of NM and the experience for me has been super because I got to know so many people and make new friends. Its a very good feeling when you know people right from FYJC to TYBCom. However, attendance in the college is quite strict and tends to become hectic. But at the end of the day, the overall functioning and organisation of the college is perfect. The faculty and teachers are very good and we can really see how much effort our teachers put in for us. The library is also brilliant. After college, we basically hang out either at all food joints outside college or at the cafes near by. Sometimes we also go to Juhu beach or to Infinite Mall in Andheri. I am glad I made that decision to Join NM in my FYJC. Once an NMite, always an NMite!

Maharashtra Navnirman Sena (MNS) activists and some students from second year Bachelor of Commerce (Bcom) allegedly assaulted Sunil Mantri, the principal of Narsee Monjee (N.M.) College in Vile Parle. They also allegedly damaged college property including the computers and the furniture.

The MNS activists were protesting on behalf of the second year Bachelor of commerce (Bcom) students who had been rusticated and were denied admission for the third year because of poor attendance. Though the police deny an assault on Sunil Mantri, the principal of N.M. College, MNS activists claimed they thrashed the principal after he used abusive language while referring to party president Raj Thackeray. We registered a case of trespassing and threatening against the activists and some students, but so far no arrests have been made, said a police official from Juhu police station.
MNS activists had approached the college authorities 10 days ago and had requested them to reconsider their decision to rusticate the students. However, the decision was not changed. MNS justified the violence saying that the principal deserved it.

MNS leader Sandeep Deshpande said: First of all Mantri was not giving the results to the students and when we questioned him, he used abusive language while referring to Rajsaheb. Hence we bashed him up and we are not sorry. If the students indeed had low attendance, they should not have been allowed to take the exams in the first place, said Deshpande.
Which college will absorb these students now? he asked while accusing the college of ruining the career of the students.
