Rani Ram Kali as a High School in 1908 was upgraded to intermediate college in 1923, to degree level in 1946 and finally to post-graduate college in 1951. It is situated in the heart of the town and covers a total area of 25.4 acres. The college is governed by a Managing Committee consisting of 13 members and is affiliated to M.J.P. Rohilkhand University, Bareilly. It received recognition under 2f and 12b of the U.G.C. Act in 1951. The college has 4 under-graduate departments and 10 post-graduate departments in the faculties of Arts, Science and Commerce, and has 3959 students on its rolls. It also runs a post-graduate diploma in Clinical Pathology and vocational courses in Industrial Chemistry and Industrial Microbiology. The college has a qualified teaching faculty of 53 regular and 15 part-time teachers. There are 15 members on the administrative and 19 members on the technical staff. The college has co-curricular centres like sports, NSS, NCC, central library, hostel, gymnasium hall, botanical garden, guest-house, vehicle parking shed etc.
S.M. College, Chandausi volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore, conducted the preliminary self study and submitted the report to NAAC in September 2004. A Peer Team consisting of Professor Ram Prakash, former Pro-Vice-Chancellor, Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra (Chairperson), Professor (Mrs.) Indu Mathur, Professor of Sociology, University of Rajasthan, Jaipur (Member) and Dr. Desh Bandhu, Principal, Sanatan Dharma College (Lahore), Ambala Cantt. (Member Coordinator) was constituted by the council to visit the institute and validate the self-study report. The team visited the institution for two days on 24 and 25 November, 2004.
The Peer Team carefully studied and analysed the Self Study Report submitted by the college. During the institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited the departments, Laboratories, Library, gymnasium etc. The academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities, extension facilities, support services were also examined. The Peer Team interacted with the Managing Committee, the Principal, faculty, Non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni of the institution in separate sessions, and then made criterion-wise value judgement on the basis of above exercise. The assessment of the college under various criteria identified by NAAC, the strengths of the institution as well as the issues of concern are given in the following pages.
SECTION 2 : CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
Criterion I - Curricular Aspects
The main goal of the institution is to provide need based quality education with co-curricular and extra-curricular facilities. These goals and objectives of the institution are communicated to the students at the time of admission through prospectus.
It is a multi-faculty college with arts, science, commerce and some supportive and vocational courses. It also offers post-graduate programmes in Botany, Chemistry, Mathematics, Zoology, English, Hindi, Political Science, Economics, Geography and Commerce. The students, thus, have a wide range of choice of courses. Although the courses are reviewed/revised by Board of Studies and other academic bodies of the university every year, the input from the college is marginal. There is little scope for innovation and inter-disciplinary or multi-disciplinary approach in curriculum designing at the college level.
The college provides opportunities for teachers to grow academically. Participation of teachers in national and international conferences/seminars has, however, been almost nil. Certain teachers are taking refresher courses and very few of them have participation in seminars/conferences during the last 5 years.
Encouragement to students through financial aid in the form of scholarships/free-ships is given. This helps the financially weaker students of the college to pursue higher studies.
Co-curricular activities like NCC, NSS take care of community/national interest. The institution is trying to give quality education. Some self-financing courses can be considered a strong side of the institution. They not only bring financial support but also the confidence of self-reliance and responsibility in the institution. There is no proper mechanism for feedback from academic peers or the students.
Criterion II : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The institution as an affiliated college to M.J.P. Rohilkhand University, Bareilly does not have much freedom in curricular aspect. For academic calendar and for faculty recruitment, the college is bound to the affiliating University and to the state government. A few teachers have been members of Research Degree Committee and Board of Studies of M.J.P. Rohilkhand University, Bareilly and in other universities.
The admissions to the college are as per University norms and with due honour to the reservation policies set up by the Union and State Governments. The admission to undergraduate classes is on the basis of the academic record and interview of the students and for M.Sc. classes it is through special entrance tests. For Ph.D., students with minimum 55% marks at PG level are eligible. The college has 3959 students on its rolls from the same state.
There is no make up programme like bridge or remedial courses to the educationally disadvantaged students or the regular extra incentive for advanced learners. The college encourages students by giving different incentives like medals, scholarships from poor student fund and special help. Although college encourages teachers to make the teaching plan, there is no unitization of the syllabi. The college does not have any evaluation of its own. It is the university that holds the annual examination and evaluation. There is no regular provision for extra-coaching of SC/ST students who sometimes need extra attention.
Faculty recruitment is through Higher Education Service Commission and teachers for self financed courses are recruited through Selection Committee of the University. The college does not have freedom to appoint temporary or ad-hoc staff. The college does not have a regular Principal since 1998. Ratio of full-time teachers to part-time teachers is 3.5:1. It speaks well of the college that above 85% of its present teachers are Ph.D.s. However, there is very little evidence of funded research being done by the faculty. Indeed a sustained research culture is yet to develop that would enrich everyday teaching.
The college has been organizing student seminars in Geography, Hindi, Economics, Chemistry, Industrial Chemistry, Industrial Microbiology and Commerce.
There is no specific self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the faculty in teaching, research and extension. The traditional ACR system needs to be introduced.
Total working days of the college are 201 out of which only 141 are the teaching days. The teaching too seems quite traditional. It is the old chalk and talk only. There is less opportunity for students' participation in the process of learning. Modern gadgets like computer, projectors, slides etc. are sparingly used. No supplementary pedagogy is tried with teaching aids or by motivating the students for interactive kind of teaching. None of the departments has been provided with computers.
Criterion III : Research, Consultancy and Extension
Forty-six teachers have Ph.D. and four M.Phil. degree. Eight of the departments are recognized centres for research leading to Ph.D. degree. There is a research committee for submission of research proposals. Adjustments in teaching schedule and other duties are made to facilitate teachers engaged in research activities. Teachers are also given study leave for research purpose. Still the percentage of teachers engaged in active research is quite low.
There is no major research project going on in any faculty - science, arts or commerce.
There is only one minor UGC project taken up by a mathematics teacher in whole of the institution. During the last five years, there has been no report of any publication from departments other than Geography, Mathematics and Commerce. No faculty member has received recognition at national or international level. There have not been visiting experts in the departments and there has not been any consultancy from outside. No department provides consultancy services as of now. The college may look into areas where consultancy services can be offered.
The students have rated their teachers as good and course completion satisfactory. However, they also felt the need for frequent lectures and consultancies by outside experts. There is a library to provide research support. This is the only source on which the researchers and students depend for study. Subscription for subject journals is negligible.
The college has an in-charge of extension activities. There are camps organized through NSS and NCC. The college is collaborating with NGOs and government agencies for social service and environment development activities.
Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college campus spread over 25.4 acres comprises well ventilated class rooms, laboratories (Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Geography, Industrial Chemistry and Industrial Microbiology), central library, administrative block, gymnasium, boys hostel, botanical garden, staff room and a separate common room for girls. Financial assistance is provided by the Managing Committee for strengthening the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth of the college and its maintenance. The campus is fully utilized for its activities from 9 a.m. to 5.30 p.m.
The college has a central library with classified departmental sections. The library is open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on all working days. There are 61006 books in the library including 258 reference books. There is also a book bank of 7092 books. The college is not subscribing to any research journal. It is subscribing to 08 newspapers and also 08 magazines regularly. The reprographic and internet facilities are not available in the library. The library is yet to be computerized.
There is no central computing facility in the college, but there are four computers including the one in the administrative office. There is no health center or health care facility in the college. However, emergent medical help is made available by the college.
The college has spacious playgrounds with facilities for a few outdoor games and a gymnasium with facilities for indoor games such as Badminton, Table Tennis, Carrom, Yoga, Chess and Weight lifting. It has recently received a grant of Rs. 3 lacs for gym equipment. The sports persons besides being given weightage in admission are also given fee concessions and diet coupons. In addition special prizes are given to sports persons selected for inter-university teams. Eight boys and two girls have participated at state level and an equal number at national level. An annual sports meet is regularly organized. Rani Ram Kali Hostel for boys is having capacity of 120 students with a recreational hall. At the moment only 37 students are residing in the hostel. At present, there is no provision of mess or canteen in the hostel.
150 students are enrolled for N.S.S. and 160 for N.C.C. 'B' and 'C' certificates have been passed by 30 and 21 cadets respectively. Besides participation in other activities, 11 cadets of the institution have participated in R.D. camp, Delhi. The college has a Rovers & Rangers unit with 238 students on roll.
Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
The institution has developed formal and informal systems to support the students. The college provides opportunities for the exposure of talents of students through debates, seminars, quiz-contests etc. They reward the deserving students for excellent performance in different fields to encourage their progression.
In certain subjects, students attend classes rarely. Attendance in practical subjects is also thin. During the last 30 years, no student of this college has been detained from appearing in the examination by the university or the college for not attending the required percentage of lectures. The admissions are allowed even after the last date on the recommendation of the university. So the drop out rate is not correctly calculated. Those who submitted the university examination form but did not appear for the examination, are considered to be drop outs which is not correct. The over-all pass percentage is satisfactory though the data regarding the university pass percentage is not available for comparison.
There is provision of indoor games, outdoor games and cultural activities through which the students can operate to express their talent and thinking. Library also provides books on various subjects that can attract student's attention. The college publishes its magazine (Jyoti) as and when possible due to financial constraints.
The institution has a career counseling committee to look after the activities of students guidance for employment and career. There is personal one to one guidance by teachers in an informal way when a student approaches a teacher. There is no placement cell or placement officer in the college and therefore no student of the college has been employed through placement services.
There is no alumni association or any other mechanism of interaction with alumni. A number of alumni have reached very high and reputed positions. Some of them have visited the college after achieving these positions. A regular interaction with alumni and a formal mechanism for this is, however, missing.
Financial aid is given to meritorious students and students in need in the form of merit scholarships, merit-cum-means scholarships and free-ships. SC and OBC candidates get scholarships from the state government and PBF and free-ship at the college level. In 2002-03, merit scholarship was given to 2, merit-cum-means to 32, only means scholarships to 708, from PBF to 42 and free-ship to 52 students. The number in the last category decreased to half compared to that in the last year. These scholarships make it possible for needy students to complete the studies. The institution presently has no student feed back system.
Criterion VI : Organizational and Management
The college is run by Shyam Sunder Memorial Trust and is governed by a Managing Committee of 13 members. There is good coordination between management, Principal, staff and students. Proctorial board is there to ensure over all discipline.
The tuition and other fees are fixed by the state government and the university. The purchase of major items is done by departmental purchase committees. Prior permission and sanction is sought from the Principal and Honorary Secretary. The internal audit of accounts is done by the auditors (C.A.) appointed by the college managing committee.
By way of forming different temporal and spatial bodies, the college devised an efficient internal coordinating and monitoring mechanism. There is no inbuilt mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff nor the college conducts professional development programme for non-teaching staff.
The Grievance Redressal Cell, Alumni Association and Women Cell need to be established and the Career Guidance and Employment Cell may be formalized and strengthened.
The various kinds of welfare schemes available to the deserving students include financial assistance in the form of fee concession and State and Central Government Merit Scholarships. Teaching and Non-teaching staff can get loan from C.P.F. and G.P.F. as per rules.

*A regular Principal should be appointed to improve the teaching-learning culture.
*An effort needs to be made to further expertise by participation in subject related seminars, workshops and symposia.
