ASHUTOSH MOHUNTA, J.(Oral)
Ramgarhia College of Education, P.O. Satnampura, Phagwara, has prayed for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to immediately release the deficit grant-in-aid of 95%, which is pending, so that the salaries to the employees can be disbursed by the petitioner in accordance with the Grant-in-Aid Scheme formulated by the State Government.

As per Audit Note dated 30.07.2007 (Annexure P-2), arrears to the tune of Rs.99,15,681/- were due till the Session 2006-2007. It is stated that the aforementioned amount is not being released to the petitioner by the respondents.

Learned counsel for the State, however, submits that various
objections have been raised and the petitioner has not cleared the same and hence, the amount has not been paid to the petitioner. Learned Counsel for the State further submits that the State Government has imposed a cut of 10% from 21.12.2001 and as the cut has been applied to all the grant-in-aid affiliated Colleges throughout Punjab, hence, the petitioner has not been paid the amount as prayed for.

Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed reliance on the judgments State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, 1995(5) Supreme Court Cases 730, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School, 2000(8) Supreme Court Cases 370, and State of Haryana and others versus Babita Yadav and Others, 2004(13) Supreme Court Cases 734, to contend that the paucity of funds or financial contributions cannot be taken a ground to deny the grant-in-aid to Government recognized private colleges while extending such facility to recognized private colleges by the State.

After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, we are of the
considered view that the case of the petitioner is squarely covered by the decision in the State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School and State of Haryana and others versus Babita Yadav and Others (supra). The State Government cannot take up the ground that due to paucity of funds, it is unable to give grant-in-aid to the colleges.

In view of the above, we hold that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid as claimed by the petitioner within a period of three months, after the clearance of the objections by the petitioner. The petitioner shall try to clear all the objections raised by the State Government within a period of one month from today.

As far as balance 10% of the amount of grant-in-aid case is concerned, the petitioner may submit a separate representation to the respondents. The respondents are also further directed to release the grant-in-aid to the petitioner in future also in time.

The writ petition stands disposed off.

NAAC report of Ramgarhia College of Education

Section 1: Preface
The Ramgarhia College of Education, Phagwara was established in 1956 with the prime objective of preparing wholesome professional teachers for schools in the surrounding rural areas to make them efficient and dutiful with special emphasis on their moral growth and development. The College has been offering a teacher education programme at the secondary level and also a Masters degree in education. The campus of the college has a good physical infrastructure that includes Teaching blocks, Computer and other laboratories, Library, Seminar room, Hostels and a stadium for sports activities. The College which is a grant-in-aid institution is managed and monitored by the Ramgarhia Educational Council, Phagwara. It is a co-educational institution admitting 200 students to the B.Ed course through a centralized admission procedure laid down by the State of Punjab. Being affiliated to the Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, the College follows the curricular and co-curricular activities as prescribed by the University for the course. The College also admits 25 students to the M Ed degree course which is as per regulations of the affiliating University The NCTE recognition for the B.Ed course was made in 1996,vide letter No. NRC- NCTE/F-5(4)./96/97/4084(28/10/96) and for the M.Ed. course later in 2000.vide letter No. NRC-NCTE/F/No.3/Pb-16/M.Ed,/2000/16051 dt. 19/09/2000.

The teaching faculty constitutes 24 teachers including the Principal. of the teaching faculty , the appointment of 12 teachers is on a permanent basis and the rest are on adhoc basis in accordance with the revised NCTE norms.. While all teachers have post graduate qualifications, a few of them possess research degrees.. Most of the students admitted to both B.Ed. and M.Ed. courses respectively belong to the State of Punjab..

The College submitted its self-study report in 2004 and the NAAC constituted a peer team comprising of Dr Nandita Sarma , Former Professor of Education, Gauhati University (Chairperson), Prof. J.S. Grewal . Director Department of Multi Media Education, M.P. Bhoj Open University, Bhopal (Member), and Prof. Marcel C. Enos, Principal St. Joseph’s College of Education, Jayalakshmipuram, Mysore, (Member). The team visited the College on December 10 and 11 , 2004 and looked in to the physical and infrastructural facilities, interacted with the Principal, Faculty, Staff, Students, Parents and Alumni. The team verified the documents for further clarifications. The Principal Dr.Shangara Singh Sra, was very helpful in supplying us with the required information.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curriculum Design and Planning
The college admits students as per the directions issued by the Government of Punjab.. The admission process is usually completed by the end of June and the classes start from the first week of July of every academic session. While the Students for the B.Ed. programme are selected through the CET as prescribed by the Government of Punjab, the M.Ed. students are selected through interviews and on the basis of their B.Ed. degree marks. The total number of teaching days in the academic calendar is 180 of a total of 230 working days for both courses. Practice teaching programme is conducted for 30 days, while each trainee gives 30 lessons in each of the two school subjects

The college tries to follow the curricular activities prescribed by the University to which it is affiliated. The theory and practical part of the courses are conducted as per the university norms. While there is a provision for assessing students knowledge and skills at admission, programmes should also be provided to meet with the needs of the disadvantaged as well as the advanced learners.The faculty is encouraged to prepare course outlines for the units in the syllabi that they teach. The only flexibility that seems to exist are in the craft options of the course. Some of the institutions mission and goals have been spelt out in general terms .Most of the college time and efforts are spent in pursuing the theoretical aspects of the prescribed courses of the University. Being an aided institution the college has some freedom to introduce innovations that would benefit the teacher trainees specially since there is the corresponding M.Ed .programme available in the same campus

The B.Ed. students are required to acquire the necessary methodology in two school subjects with special emphasis on development of skills in teaching. through microteaching .They are encouraged to participate in other extension activities organised through school community networking, and have taken up activities like NSS, Blood donation, celebration of days of religious and national importance, etc. with assistance from NGOs , A lot more needs to be still done keeping in view the requirements of the programme. Some co-curricular activities like debates, declamations, workshops etc. can be of great help in promoting and developing the personality of students. At the ideational level some emphasis is placed on the development of language skills in the students. However, with a little more effort on the part of the faculty the students could be helped to acquire proficiency in communication skills.

Within the B.Ed. programme limited course options exist with respect to school teaching subjects and other skill development areas. All these options are in conformity with the University courses and syllabi. In this age of Information Technology the students must be introduced to the importance of Information Technology and Computers for enhancing the teaching learning process.

The College is bound to follow the programmes as prescribed by the affiliating University. The process has made the College functioning and teaching learning process a routine activity devoid of vitality. The curriculum continues to be top heavy with inputs in theory, without innovative practices. Likewise the practice teaching and internship programmes continue in a traditional manner with little scope left for experimentation with regard to new trends. With valuable inputs available in the campus in the M.Ed. department and the need for action research along with the nature of the M.Ed. degree programme the school teacher education programme can be made very useful. The College can add some activities on its own and motivate the students to develop and participate in competitions held by various organizations. The Peer team enjoyed the Cultural programme that was presented and showcased the Culture and traditions of the State. Recently, the College hosted the Inter Collegiate Youth festival in which the trainees projected their talents.

Criterion II: Curriculum Transaction and Evaluation
The College prepares an academic calendar in advance which includes the provision for discussions, seminars and tutorials. Various teaching aids chiefly in the form of models and charts are prepared and used. As per directions from the affiliating university, students’ participation in the teaching learning process is encouraged and the college seeks to provide the required teaching learning experiences as outlined. During the orientation session the students are provided details of the evaluation process and the progress of the students is monitored through the course. Suitable incentives and prizes are also given to outstanding performers. If some brainstorming sessions are held during tutorials some qualitative interaction with the students and teachers can be promoted. While the College encourages participation of students in co-curricular activities, they should be suitably motivated to take part in a variety of activities that contribute to their social development.

One of the parts of practice teaching is Microteaching. In a bid to follow the University curricula the micro lessons are planned and carried out by the students and lessons are planned and delivered skill-wise. Further the link from microteaching to real teaching seems to be missing. It would be advisable to introduce simulated lessons. This would give the students necessary confidence before they launch out into the real teaching process.

The functioning of the library as well as computer laboratory is also linked with the College working hours. There is a felt need that these facilities be made available to the students for longer hours or that their functioning is so arranged in order that the students can utilize these during their free time.

Some of the faculty members have attended seminars, workshops and conferences at the Regional , State and National levels. However a greater participation is necessary specially in the post graduate level for greater awareness of new trends and dissemination of knowledge among all members of the teaching faculty. The College gets only oral feedback from students and the faculty for their self appraisal

Through regular assembly programmes and the celebration of religious and National festivals the institution imparts value education informally. It seeks to inculcate civic responsibility through various social activities and encourages student participation in various competitions for their personality development as well as social interaction in the community.
The use of the Library, Internet, seminars, publications, debates and other cooperative classroom ventures have to be some taken with more seriousness to promote the development and transfer of skills among the trainees.

The College follows the evaluation scheme prescribed by the affiliating university wherein each theory as well as practical aspect is covered under internal assessment and external assessment respectively. The weightage being 28 % and 72 %. The whole process of evaluation is comprehensive and is complex and cumbersome. During the process of scoring for internal assessment confidentiality is maintained. Transparency in this exercise is most desired. The Faculty needs to reexamine the scoring procedure so that the students are given a clear picture of their progress and internal assessment.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy And Extension
The College is devoted to the cause of training pre service teachers for the neighbourhood. In a bid to achieve this objective the faculty has understood the contribution of research in producing good teachers. Research is promoted at both B.Ed. and M.Ed. levels with the constitution of a research committee headed by the Principal. Teachers are encouraged to take up different kinds of research activities including the acquisition of research degrees for which the institution motivates the teachers. The Post-graduate course in Education has the required inputs for the teaching of research methodology courses and there are 4 research scholars who work part time. Relevant details of various research activities, proposals for other research studies and action research projects could have been furnished. The College has been sanctioned a research project by the NCTE on the implementation of norms and standards which is proposed to be implemented with the help of the M.Ed. students rather than a project fellow and the faculty, which is not a very sound proposition.

While reviewing the whole functioning of the College, the peer team is of the view that the teachers need to be encouraged to relate application of some fundamental research work to their teaching, especially in the school curriculum.

The potential lying with the College about teaching methodologies and managing educational institutions may be fully utilized for providing consultancy services for educational management of the schools and colleges in the area. Also there is a need that the College prospectus publicizes the expertise available with the staff in different skills pertaining to the teaching methodologies, educational management and communication.

There is much scope for utilizing the extension activities available in the institution with the appointment of a part time coordinator. Some areas of extension include community development, Adult education, AIDS awareness, working with schools and schoolteachers, organizing blood donation camps, and environment awareness programmes, etc. However, there is scope for the college to take up extension activities in the areas of teaching the socially disadvantaged, out of school and physically challenged children in the rural areas. Students can be encouraged to participate and organize extension activities in the merging areas like gender ratio education, environmental issues and vocational education. The Peer team suggested to the Management to provide suitable Vocational courses in at least one of its secondary schools thereby meeting with the merging needs of the youth and the potential available with the Ramgarhia Educational Council, as this Community is world renowned for its work related activities.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college is spread over 3.50 acres of land. The institution is housed in a good building with sound infrastructural facilities and therefore fulfills conditions laid by the agencies like the NCTE. The required teaching rooms are adequate in number and size but they need to be better furnished with appropriate furniture, blackboards and lecture desks. The college has paid special attention to the development of the All-purpose science laboratory and Computer laboratories however the psychology laboratory needs special attention with provision for suitable furniture and apparatus for experimental work. The Peer team suggested that resource persons may be invited to orient the Faculty in setting up the Psychology laboratory according to requirements of the syllabus. The College space can be used as a good resource centre for the educational needs of the local community. Similarly, the existing resources like computer laboratory can be put to optimal use for College administrative functions l, maintaining student record or examination work, maintenance of stocks of library books, access to Internet etc. Further infrastructure can be better utilized for raising funds and providing community resources.

The College is situated in a clean and pollution free atmosphere, which is a prerequisite for the promotion of good teaching-learning environment. The College has beautiful gardens that are well maintained by the students and staff through the work experience programme. Therefore students need to take advantage and promote the development of their personalities by being involved in such processes related to the environment. Activities like self-help, social service SUPW and living with the environment will be useful. Further the house system can be made responsible for keeping their campus clean.

The College has a library with about 19500 books. Most of these are old textbooks that are quite useful for the students to meet their immediate needs.The library resources include some reference material like resource books, encyclopedia, journals, periodicals etc. The College needs to acquire recently published school text books published by the NCERT and other National level bodies like National Institute of Open Schooling (NIOS), IGNOU, Rehabilitation Council of India, and other organisations The Library subscribes to about 18 journals which are useful resources for research purposes. It is a good sign that the college makes some attempt to add to the stock of existing books annually. With the advent of information technology addition in the relevant software like CD ROMs, can be of great help to the students. Presently, the library is open during all the working days of the session. It is to be noted that the facility is accessible to the students during their leisure time and also during the examination. Space for a reading room is inadequate and the furniture and infrastructure used in the library should be made comfortable and conducive for proper academic activities. The provision of a book bank facility is of great help to the students.

A computer laboratory is established with about five computers with provision for expansion to cater to various requirements. An Internet facility supplements the academic and library resources. The software packages available are mainly MS-office. Efforts need to be made to procure and use educational software to promote computer-assisted learning. Short-term courses can be designed to spread computer literacy among the members of the faculty and non-teaching staff. These courses can be utilized for generating funds. Since the college is organizing teaching learning activities, self-learning packages can be the part of the curriculum transaction. Also there is ample scope for data analysis by the computer laboratory for the teachers or students engaged in maintaining records of examination work or research activities at the M.Ed. level or fieldwork.

The college has made provisions for good sports facilities of various types. In addition to Playgrounds that have been prepared for playing different kinds of games, the students have access to facilities in the stadium that is developed by the Ramgarhia Educational Council. There is a Director of Physical Education and students are motivated to participate in various inter collegiate games and sports competitions The College has organized an Inter Collegiate Sports festival. In addition to this suitable health amenities are available through a hospital maintained by the Management..

At the moment, the college has a separate hostel facility on the campus to accommodate women students with essential facilities. . Student welfare services like provision of a recreation room, television, indoor games can be of great help to the hostel students.. The students participate in different functions being organized for the students in the college and outside the college. They have been winning various prizes and awards for cultural programmes. They have a potential to excel in dramatics, singing and dancing that can be nurtured with motivation and encouragement.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
Of all students who appeared for the University B.Ed examination the dropout rate is almost nil for the preceding period of three years. The pass percentage is invariably almost cent percent. The local schools in the vicinity of the college prefer the products of this institution and nearly 50% of the students pursue further education programmes. Some of the Alumni have occupied prominent positions in other educational institutions at different levels. The College needs to have a formal placement and guidance cell to take care of the placement of their alumni. If students’ grievance redressal cell is formally organised in the College, it will help to air the grievances of the students in the proper perspective.
The teachers and students interact with each other in a very cordial and informal manner. Regular feedback from students if provided to teachers would enhance their participation and they would benefit from the programme.

The College does have an alumni association. While the major function of this body is to keep the college informed about its students and their professional growth, some attempt has been initiated to strengthen the alumni association. Two of the Alumni are National Awardees and one is a State level Awardee. They expressed their views to equip the Government schools in order that they may revive the old glory and continue to provide cost effective education to the community.

The College provides financial help to some students through merit scholarships, loans and other financial aid. Such programmes could be further extended to the larger student body.

The teachers of the College provide personal and academic counseling. Since the student teacher ratio is quite reasonable, the teachers in the College maintain personal contact with every student. Students do consult teachers for their personal, academic and vocational problems.

The added recreational facilities available include Indoor games publication of a magazine, A.V. facilities and cultural and literary activities The College Magazine should contain a larger number of contributions considering the number of trainees.

Criterion VI: Organization and Management.
The College has a well-organized management system. There is a local as well as central managing committee to look after the College management. There are teacher representatives on the College management committee. However, autonomy is given to the College Principal to organize and manage the College. Financial and academic advice by the management is given to the Principal from time to time.

An inspection team from the University after every three years visits the College for the maintenance of standards. The committee of the NCTE has also been visiting the College for maintenance of the norms for the professional programmes. The intention of the College management to provide quality education to the students is quite apparent from the fact that College has been voluntarily inviting visiting committees from the NCTE and the University for the academic, social and administrative auditing. During the past few years such committees have invariably visited the College for the improvement of the professional programmes. One can feel that there still exists a gap between the recommendations made by the respective bodies and the actual implementation of the schemes.

The teaching staff for the college is recruited as per the norms prescribed by the University and the NCTE. The recruitment is made through open selection. The College is committed to follow NCTE norms regarding staff structure. The non-teaching staff is similarly recruited as per NCTE norms. They are also recruited by open selection. The College has a difficulty in regularising the services of the adhoc staff. With suitable lucrative measures being initiated, the College attracts competent and well-qualified teachers.

Performance appraisal of the teaching staff needs to be done using proper self-appraisal proformas. The appraisal of the non-teaching staff is done by annual confidential report written by the Principal of the College. The communication between the staff and the management appears to be direct.

Various welfare schemes for the students are available in the College. The welfare schemes for the staff includes contribution towards the Provident fund and gratuity etc. Special staff welfare schemes as per recent developments need to be added. A grievance redressal cell has been established in the College.

The College needs to give due consideration to the training of non-teaching staff. They can be trained in the use of computers in the office. Upgrading the qualifications of the non-teaching staff will be of great help to the College as well as management.

Annual budgeting and auditing procedure is part of the College functioning. The salaries of the staff are directly credited to their accounts by the management in good time.

The major resource of the College is from the fees collected from the students. The annual tuition fee given by each student is nearly
Rs. 20,000/- including other charges.
