NAAC report of Hooghly Mohsin College

Hooghly Mohsin College, Chinsurah, Hooghly is a pioneering college with rich nationalistic traditions in West Bengal, catering to the educational needs of the youth for the last 170 years. The college was established in 1836 in the colonial period as New Hooghly College and was renamed as Hooghly Mohsin College on its centenary day celebration in 1936 to acknowledge the signal contribution of the legendary Hazi Mohammad Mohsin to spread education in West Bengal.

The objectives and goals of the institution, since its inception, have been to provide opportunities for higher education to students irrespective of their socio-economic, linguistic and religious status; to ignite the flames of intellectual curiosity, independent thinking with nationalistic traditions for nation building.

The college is a Government of West Bengal Institution and also a constituent college of University of Burdwan. The institution is recognized by UGC under 2(f) and is eligible for central assistance under 12(B) of the UGC Act. The college is located in an urban set up in an area of 11.3 acres. The number of students on the rolls is 2517 and the number of sanctioned strength of teachers, non-teaching and technical staff on the pay roll is 89, 53 and 03 respectively. Out of the 89 permanent teachers, 25 are female teachers. Besides 35 part time lecturers and two guest lecturers for Law have been appointed. The unit cost of education for general students is Rs.15,647.00 and Rs. 690.00 when salary component is taken into account and without taking salary component into account respectively. The unit cost of education for Law students is Rs.13,585.00 and Rs.3,794.00 taking into account the salary component and without salary component.

The college offers five academic programmes in both Under Graduate and Post Graduate levels with 23 subjects in an annual system. Semester system with credit based course system has not been introduced. But the courses have been unitized for teaching and students' convenience. Honours courses on 15 subjects of B.A., B.Sc., B.Com (Accountancy Honours). Three general programmes (B.A., B.Sc., B.Com.), 01 Law course and four P.G. Courses in English, Political Science, Commerce and Physiology are offered. Besides, the college enrolls doctoral students in Physiology in collaboration with Zoology. With some restrictions, a variety of course options for students exists. Spatial movement is available. No new programme has been offered except honours in history and university sponsored department of PG course in Physiology and English during the last 5 years but syllabi revision has been made by the University. Feedbacks from students are obtained for course evaluation and teaching performance. Seminars and memorial lectures are regularly arranged. Besides NSS activities, sports and cultural programmes are integral part of co-curricular activities. NCC was discontinued a few years back but the college is hopeful of rejuvenating it shortly.

In undergraduate courses, the admission is made on the basis of marks secured in +2 examinations through counseling process. . In P.G. Courses, counseling is done before admission.

Out of 134 and 73 sanctioned posts of teachers, and non-teaching and technical staff respectively, 89 teaching posts and 56 non-teaching and technical staff have been appointed. The teaching - non-teaching staff ratio is about 1 : 0.63 and the ratio 1 : 0.45 if part time and Guest Lecturer are taken into account. About 48% of permanent teachers are Ph.D./M.Phil. degree holders. All newly appointed teachers have cleared UGC - NET / State SLET examinations. Some 9% of faculty have worked as resource persons in seminars / workshops during the last 5 years. Most of the teachers have attended refresher / orientation etc. courses. The college has a tradition of organizing two invited/ endowment lectures every year. Besides, the college has organized 15 seminars/ workshops during last two years. The teaching is largely by lecture, chalk-duster method.

One major and five minor research projects funded by MoEF, New Delhi and UGC worth of Rs.13,66,970.00 are either running or recently completed in Zoology, Botany, English, Economics and Sanskrit departments of the college. Although college has not signed any MoU for research collaboration with National and International institutions, 13 teachers in the faculty of Science collaborate with other National Institutions. Many teachers have published good number of research and review papers in Indian & Foreign journals, books and book chapters. Two teachers in Chemistry and Physics departments were awarded International fellowships and some teachers were awarded National level awards/ recognition in Physiology, Physics and Bengali.

All departments should be encouraged to submit research projects to funding agencies. The college may further strengthen the very recently appointed research and publication committee committee to coordinate project writing/ submission and provide financial assistance to teachers for preparation of the projects.

The Central Library houses 1,30,000 text books, 10,000 reference level books and 600 back volumes of journals and subscribes to 16 Indian and 1 foreign journals largely in Arts, Law, Commerce disciplines and 3 magazines. The library has e-information resource and a book bank. Some rare books and some UNO & World Bank publications are also available. The library has purchased 3231 books during last two years spending about Rs.4.5 lakh. The library is partially computerized and digitization is being done for some rare and old books. The percentage of library budget is 1.47% of the total budget. Reprographic facility and Internet facility have been provided very recently but linkage with other libraries and Inter-library borrowing facility and Bibliography compilation facility are yet to develop. The library may develop INFLIBNET facility and requires a separate building with adequate space for better management. The college does not have any computer terminal but 48 computers (20 of them purchased very recently) are available in the college. Most of the computers are located in the departments. Computer/ IT courses are not available for students and staff. Although there is no separate Instrumentation Centre but two Science departments in general and physiology and botany departments in particularhave instrumentation facility for their research work.

The college has its own publication of books and a college journal with an ISSN number.

Every year on the average 33 students per year qualify for different examinations
like NET, SLET, TOEFL, GRE, Judiciary and Civil Service, School & College Service Commission. At both UG & PG level, the student dropout is about 13% per year but the examination result is very encouraging.

Hooghly Mohsin College has volunteered for NAAC, Bangalore assessment and prepared a Self Study Report. A Peer Team consisting of Prof. M.C. Dash, former Vice-Chancellor of Sambalpur University as Chairman, Prof. R.M. Ranganath Department of Botany, Bangalore University as Member Co-coordinator and Prof. Noni Gopal Goswami former Principal, Jagannath Barooah College, Jorhat, Assam as Member visited the institution on 20th - 21st March, 2007. The Peer Team perused and analyzed the Self Study Report and examined the relevant documents and visited all the departments, central facilities and interacted with the Principal, Members of Governing Body, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, boarders of the two boys' hostels, Alumni and parents and the coordinator of College NAAC Steering Committee. On the basis this exercise, the Peer Team has assessed the authenticity of the self study report, and the performance of the college. This draft report is prepared criterion-wise.

Criterion-I: Curricular Aspects:
The vision of the college is to achieve excellence by building a strong base for creating a knowledge based institution for the benefit of the society.

The Institution publishes its annual prospectus giving information on course options, examination matter, fees etc. and updates its website periodically with salient features of the academic programme, staff and other aspects. The college is a constituent college of the University and offers annual system of teaching and examination. The institution provides good number of course combinations in Arts, Science and Commerce and course options as approved by University of Burdwan. The subjects offered by the college are English, Economics, History, Political Science, Bengali, Philosophy, Sanskrit, Hindi and Urdu in Arts faculty and Botany, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics, Physiology, Zoology and Economics in Science and Commerce (Accountancy). It also offers a 3 year LLB course for graduate students. Although semester and course credit system is not followed, the courses are unitized and updated periodically keeping the current trends at National and International level. Many teachers of the college participate in the Board of Studies and Board of Research Studies of different subjects of the University and contribute in curriculum design although it will be prudent to offer more course options and combinations if the college gets autonomy. Spatial movement can be made more openly.

College does not conduct entrance tests or interacting sessions before admission to assess aptitude and motivation of prospective UG students and to assess their knowledge and skill for any particular course, as per the existing Government rules. The admission in UG is based on marks secured in +2 examination. However, in four Post Graduate courses counseling is done before admission and in some honours programmes, counseling has been introduced recently. The number of applications for admission is usually five to seven times more than the available seats. The College conducts number of seminars/ workshops and invited and endowment lectures, which provide opportunity for participation to students. Computer application/ IT courses are not offered as separate subject.

In Commerce and Mathematics, there is provision of computer courses. Collaboration in running some interdisciplinary/ multidisciplinary courses in allied departments, job oriented diploma/ certificate courses, Spoken English etc. may be introduced. The English department having a good base may take a lead to collaborate with language departments to develop a language laboratory to offer comparative literature courses.

Criterion-II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation:
The teaching is largely lecture, chalk-duster and OHP methods. The college is yet to develop LCD projection facilities in a large scale. Some of the science departments have overhead projectors.

The teachers are appointed through the Public Service Commission of West Bengal as per the norms of the Government and University of Burdwan. Out of the 134 sanctioned teaching posts, 30 vacancies exist. 15 vacancies of physical instructors and demonstrators have been abolished by the Government. Part time teachers have been appointed to lessen the pressure on permanent teachers. In four Post Graduate Departments except one, Professors have not been appointed. The permanent teacher-student ratio is about 1:28 and the ratio of permanent teachers & supporting staff is 1 : 0.91. Most of the teachers are qualified as 48% of the teachers possess either Ph.D./M.Phil degrees and most of the teachers have passed NET/SLET etc. examinations and many are very experienced. Most of the teachers have participated in refresher and orientation courses and attended National/ International and state level seminars and workshops. Some teachers have availed faculty development programmes and visited other institutions on Scholarship/Fellowship programmes. Although bridge courses are not offered but the college conducts tutorial classes, periodical class tests, half yearly and annual tests before the University examination. The examination results in UG & PG are very encouraging. Every year some students secure first class and also ranks in the University. Teachers share administrative responsibilities by becoming members of different committee and on the average every teacher spends 6 hours per week for administrative work. The college observed 186 teaching days in 2005-06.

Criterion-III: Research, Consultancy and Extension:
A research culture exists in many departments. One major research project is recently completed in Zoology department and seven minor research projects are running in Botany (2), Economics (1), English (1), Sanskrit (1) physiology (1) and Bengali (1)departments. The teachers have published 97 papers in National and International Journals during the last 5 years. Besides, 27 books have been published and a number of papers have been published in college journal. Teachers have also presented papers in many National and International Seminars. Physiology and Zoology departments collaborate in guiding Ph.D. students. Besides one student works for Ph.D. in Hindi. A faculty member in Physics was conferred the best thesis award by Indian Laser Association in 2006 and is awarded a Royal Society fellowship to work in Oxford University. One teacher of the department of Chemistry has been awarded BOYSCAST fellowship under DST programme in 2007 to work in Barcelone, Spain.Many teachers collaborate with other Universities for research work. However, the college has not signed any MoU for research exchanges with any other institution and has not developed linkage with industries.

Since the college has developed a good research base, its staff members should try for patenting activities in future. There is scope in Science departments & Commerce department for this activity. The Science Journal section in the Central Library requires strengthening.

The college organizes many extension activities mainly through NSS wing which is doing good work in a selected slum area. Some Science departments like Physiology, Zoology and Botany also extend their expertise for community activities on health care and creating awareness in the practice of agricultural methods. NSS wing and the Law department also organize Legal aid Camps for girls and collaborated with a NGO for giving sex education to adolescent students. Besides, they were involved in blood donation camps, creating environmental awareness and Medical camps and some other slum programmes. The college has initiated measures to revive NCC in short future.

Criterion-IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resource:
The main campus of the college is located in 4.75 acres of land with 12 buildings interspersed with open space and gardens. Five buildings house the teaching departments; other buildings house students' canteen, Principal quarter, pump house, generator room, a garage, a students' union building, transformer room etc. The buildings used for academic activities, house 34 class rooms lecture hall, seminar rooms etc. The college does not have an auditorium but has a big central hall. There are acute space constraints in all the departments. Library and Law departments require a separate buildings. The open spaces include a volley ball and a badminton court and a basket ball court. The college has recently established a multi-gym facility under additional charge of a teacher. Considering the student strength and academic provisions, there is a need to provide more space for academic and sport activities. The college, however, utilizes the community hall of Hooghly Zilla Parishad on hiring basis when required. Besides, renovation of the existing buildings with good furniture is required.

The college runs three shifts, the morning shift accommodates B.A./B.Sc. general course students, day shift accommodates Honours and Post Graduate courses and the night shift accommodates Law students and UG-Commerce students. This arrangement negates the space shortage problem although creates lot of compression for a very conducive academic ambience. The college authorities have taken some steps to solve the problem and new constructions are in the pipeline.

There is no central computing facility and terminal. The college plans to create these facilities in near future.

The Library remains open for 246 days in a year and about 12 hours every day. The library house 1,40,000 books and 600 back volumes and subscribes to 16 Indian and one foreign journal. The Library uses TLMs and is not fully computerized for processing books and audio-visual materials. The library has an archives section and admission into it requires Principal's permission.

Digitalisation of old and rare documents are being done with help of central government and there is good progress . The internet facilities are available for staff & students and a logbook is maintained for recording internet use. Xerox facilities have been made available to students very recently. The Library has a small reading room for students and browsing counter. The books etc. are stored in wooden stacks and requires better maintenance facility reasonably well. Reprographic facility is available for students and staff. The Library budget is less than 2% of the total budget of the college. Budget allocation for library may be increased. Steps may be taken for early full-computerization and interlinking with other libraries. The interlibrary loan facility may be introduced. A journal section with adequate reading room facility may be made available.

There is no central instrumentation centre. A constituent college may make efforts to develop that facility, so that repair work and maintenance of departmental instruments can be done easily.

Criterion-V: Student Support and Progress:
The student strength of the college in 2005-2006 was 2517. Female students form about 70% in Arts & humanities, about 35% in Commerce and 24% in Science and about 41% all faculties taken together. Many students come from weaker socio-economic section of the society. All students come from West Bengal.

Some 30 students qualified in NET/SLET examinations during last 5 years. Besides, a good number of students qualify in West Bengal Civil Service and other state level examinations. Some 5% of graduating students are employed annually and more than 90% students are enrolled either in the college or elsewhere for Post Graduate studies. Some 30% of P.G. pass outs usually enroll for research degrees.

The college publishes its updated prospectus annually providing academic and co-curricular facilities available, fee structure, examination schedule, library facility etc. Besides, the college website provides detail information on these and other aspects. The college publishes a literary magazine once in a year to promote creative activities among students and staff. Most of the departments encourage students to publish wall magazines, half-yearly or quarterly.

The college supports economically weaker students by granting scholarships, full and half student tuition fees from endowments, and other provisions on the basis of merit. Student's Union manages Students Aid Fund. The college has established a Placement and Counseling Cell active since 2006. However, this cell is to be strengthened.

The Alumni Association is recently revived and more efforts are required to involve them effectively in the development of the college. Many alumni's were eminent citizens and freedom fighters of India and excelled in different walk of life and have strong desire for involvement for the development of the college. The great Novelist Bankim Chandra Chattopadhyay, the renowned Scientist U.N. Brahmachari, the Legendary Singer & Lyricist Shyamal Mitra and many others were educated in this college and form the list of distinguished alumni. At present many alumni occupy important positions in the society.

Prof. Dipak Basu of Carleton University in Canada, an alumnus of this college has recently donated Rs.1.0 lakhs to the Physics department of the college to institute a scholarhip. However, the alumni activities are to be strengthened.

There is a Grievance redressal cell which deals largely of student problems. The college encourages sports, games and gymnastic activities. Recently a lady instructor has joined. Students have earned laurels at the state level for the college by winning prizes in University sports and games competitions and are being selected in the University team. Although student feed back system has been introduced, the feedback on syllabus and teaching related matters are to be strengthened. All students in every discipline including the final year students should be involved in providing the feed back for syllabus, course coverage, teaching methods and quality, seminars etc. assessment. Departmental students seminars should be a regular feature.

Students of Law are exposed to Mock Assembly, and to observe the proceedings in the Apex Court. The department has one full time teacher and about 7 part time teachers and requires more full time teachers. The college promotes Seminars/Workshops, annual exhibition, cultural programmes including competition and NSS activities involving community activities. The college has two Boy's hostels one for 16 muslim students and other for about 60 non muslim students, very close to the college campus with indoor games and computer and reading room facilities.

Criterion-VI: Organization and Management:
This is a Government Institution. The Principal is the head of the Institution and reports to Government (The Director of Public Instructions) periodically the activities of the college. The Principal functions with the assistance of Teachers Council. The Principal is also a member of the Executive Council of the University on a rotation basis with another college for 2 years at a time. Some teachers are members of Faculty Councils of the University. They take part in policy making process of the University. Some teachers are members of the Boards of Research Studies, P.G. Boards of Studies and UG Boards of Studies. In view of this the academic administration is largely decentralized and Principal is the Chief Lassoing authority and overloaded with administrative work of three academic shifts.

The college has a Governing Body constituted as per University of Burdwan and Government of West Bengal norms. The district magistrate is the President of Governing Body. The Governing Body is represented by the Principal, Vice-Chancellor's nominees, Government nominees, Members of Teacher's Council, non-teaching staff and Student's Union. Governing Body plays largely the supervisory function. Besides, some Committee deal with specific matters like Admission matters, Purchase of materials, UGC-matters, Library matters and NSS activities. Teachers Council meets more often but the Governing Body does not meet regularly. The President and members of Governing Body have, however intense desire to improve the infrastructure facilities and require UGC and government grant.

Monthly performance appraisal reports of teachers are collected and the reports are sent to Government with comments of the Principal. Follow up actions are taken. The college prepares an annual budget and the Accounts are maintained and audited as per Government rules.

The college office and accounts are partially computerized. The salary payments of teachers is made through government treasury and S.B.I. India. But the staff are paid salary by cash. Students fees are collected in the college counter and deposited in the bank through treasury challan within 24 hours. The students scholarship distribution system requires better management. All payment may be made through Bank.

Criterion-VII: Healthy Practices:
Hooghly Mohsin College has 170 years of rich Nationalistic tradition of imparting general education to the youth of undivided Bengal and at present to the youth of West Bengal. The college has recently introduced counseling system in the admission procedure to Honours courses. The Teacher's Council plays active role in formulating academic policies and monitoring students' discipline and welfare. Very good coordination exists between all the stakeholders of the college. The academic ambience of the college is good. One science department has been granted academic autonomy. The college can achieve many good things if autonomy is granted. The college is publishing an academic journal and promoting different teaching departments to bring departmental publications. The institution is the nodal centre for conducting Central Government research project to evaluate the performance of the 'Sarbasiksha Avijan' in Hooghly district. The college has opened its own website.

The NSS unit has adopted a Slum Programme and is actively involved in creating Community awareness in AIDs, environmental issues, women rights, etc. Faculty and student take up public health check up, blood donation camps etc. Besides the college has established a legal aid clinic for socially disadvantaged people. Annual cultural festivals, Science and Art exhibitions organized by college promote creative activity in youth. The college has recently acquired audio-visual devices for teaching seminar activities and screening documentary & feature films of contemporary relevance. The college has recently established a 'Women's Studies Centre' . The student's Union publishes its own literary magazine.

The college has a glorious past and rich traditions. The Principal and staff are dedicated to their official duties. We feel very happy about it. But to cope with the challenge of globalization, technology-mediated education, course diversification, knowledge based education and skill based training, the college authorities may consider the following suggestions to implement to achieve greater heights in the pursuit of excellence.

Expedititious Steps may be taken to fill up 30 vacant positions of teachers and 16 vacant positions of supporting staff. The NAAC Peer Team expresses its concern for existence of so many vacancies in the premier college. The posts of professors in P.G. departments may be filled up on priority basis.

Faculty members without Ph.D. may be encouraged to do Ph.D.

Expansion of physical facilities, especially space is now prime requirement for the college. Government and University authorities including UGC may be moved to look into this matter.

Steps may be taken to raise funds from MP/MLA LAD fund , consultancy service, and from Alumni etc.

The college may be declared as an Autonomous constituent college so that it will be convenient to introduce semester system, more course combinations and options and postgraduate courses in future.

Teachers in all departments may be encouraged to submit research projects to funding agencies. The college may establish an exclusive research committee for this purpose and provide seed money for preparation of research projects.

The Central Library needs to be fully computerized and expanded on priority basis. The library should have a separate building.

Steps to develop a Central Computer laboratory and computer application etc. courses should be taken up on priority basis. Provisions may be made to provide computer training to employees and teachers. A computer literate short term programme on self financing basis may be introduced.

Postgraduate courses may be introduced in strong departments phase wise after solving the space problem.

The college may float job oriented diploma/ certificate courses keeping local problems and need in view, especially in spoken English, creative writing in English and other literature departments Industrial Chemistry, Industrial fishery, Fashion design, Interior decoration, Embroidery and Tailoring , Performing Arts, MOU may be entered into with other organizations for this purpose.

Steps may be taken to develop a Central Language Laboratory for all language (English, Bengali, Sanskrit, Urdu) and literature departments. This may facilitate introduction of teaching of some foreign language and courses on linguistics. Since English department has strong faculty position, it may take the lead and coordinate the activities.

Active involvement of the Alumni association in the development of the college may be expedited.

The Library journal section, especially for Sciences may be strengthened.
The college may encourage inter departmental and inter disciplinary courses in Biotecnology, Microbilology, Environmental Chemistry, Certificate course on medical plants.

The institution may introduce BBA/BBM courses in commerce faculty and specialization in Tax laws and procedures, Entrepreneurship, computer application, marketing and salesmanship, Mass communication and electronic media.

Toilet facilities exist for male and female students. However, more toilet facilities especially for women may be provide in some of the teaching departments. This is suggested by some students.

The college may take steps to open NCC wings, both for male & female students.

Since Bachelor of Law programme is popular in the college and has a separate identity, a separate building and facility may be developed for legal education.

The institution may constitute its quality assurance cell and draw up a perspective plan for future development and academic development to achieve excellence.

The student feedback system of course evaluation and teaching evaluation may be institutionalized and follow up action be taken.

The Peer Team notes with happiness the initiatives taken by the Principal, Teacher's Council, faculty, staff, and students for their efforts to prepare the self study report meticulously for NAAC evaluation and for their continuous efforts to move forward in the process of achieving academic and overall excellence. We wish to thank the Principal, Dr. Debasish Banerjee, NAAC-Steering Committee Coordinator Dr. Soumen Bhattacharjee of the college, faculty members and all stakeholders of the college for helpful and cordial support during the visit.
