Profile of Dinabandhu Andrews College, Garia

Dinabandhu Andrews College (Govt. Sponsored), a premier Co-educational institution was established in the year 1956 by an order of the Government of West Bengal. The college is named after Rev. C.F. Andrews, a celebrated saint, philanthropist, a trustworthy friend of the downtrodden and a dedicated warrior of Indian Freedom Struggle. He was also an eminent disciple of Mahatma Gandhi and a close confident of Kabiguru Rabindranath Tagore. His great love for the people of India and excellent services and sacrifice for the suffering millions of our Motherland, More especially for emancipation of the bonded labourers in this country and abroad are a constant source of inspiration to all the constituents of the college - its administration, staff members and students.
The college was basically constituted at the fringe of this semi-urban zone of 24 Parganas (South) district with an aim to disseminate the scope of
higher education to a huge number of children of the displaced persons from erstwhile East Pakistan, presently Bangladesh. Moreover, our institution is also providing immense opportunities of higher education to a large number of rural and urban students, a substantial number of which belongs to schedule castes, other disadvantaged and marginalised section of the society.
Initially, the college was providing education in a few specified subjects to only 750 to 1000 students. But at present the roll strength has reached almost 5000 as the college is now offering Advanced Courses in 12 subjects in Science, Arts and Commerce stream along with General courses. As the Day Section of the college had undergone a phenomenal expansion during the last decade, the Governing Body had to take effective steps for opening of a Morning Section to provide the scope of higher education to a considerable number of deserving students.

NAAC report of Dinabandhu Andrews College, Garia

Section I : Preface
Dinabandu Andrews College, Baishnabghata (W.B.) volunteered to be
assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council and conducted the preliminary self study. The Self Study Report (SSR) was submitted to NAAC by the institution. A peer team was constituted by NAAC to visit the institution and validate the SSR. The peer team, consisting of Prof. R.S. Bawa, Registrar & Prof. of Economics, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar as Chairman, Prof. N.K. Dubey and Dr.Durlava Ch. Mohanty as Members and Dr. M.S. Shyamasundar, Deputy Advisor from NAAC, Bangalore as the Co-ordinating Officer visited the institution for two days January 6-7, 2006.

Dinabandu Andrews College, Baishnabghata (W.B.) is an affiliated college under Calcutta University, Calcutta covering a total area of 2.03 acres, the college was established in 1956 to emanate the scope of higher education at the undergraduate as well as post-graduate levels to the desirous and meritorious young learners irrespective of caste, class, religion and gender bias to shape their career in such a manner that they could well adopt to a dynamic information rich technology driven world. The college is having strength of 4533 students in the Faculty of Pure Sciences, Bio Sciences, Arts and Commerce and 107 students in the PG during the current academic year. During the last two batches the drop out rate both in UG and in PG was nil and the success rate was 98% and 95% in UG and 100% in PG. The financial category of the college is Grant-in-aid. The college has UGC recognition under 2f and 12 b since July 1956.

There are 61 permanent members in the teaching faculty, out of which 25 have Ph.D 08 have M.Phil and 28 have PG as the highest qualification besides 54 temporary/ part-time teachers. There are 32 members in the administrative staff and 17 in the technical staff. The unit cost of the college education is Rs.1696/- excluding salary component and Rs.6653/- including salary component in UG and Rs. 5175/- excluding salary component in PG. The temporal plan of academic work of the college is Annual System. The college has support services in the form of Central library, Computer Centre, Sports facilities, Canteen, and Gymnasium.

The Peer Team carefully perused and analysed the SSR submitted by the institution. During the institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited departments and facilities and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were visited. The peer team also interacted at length with the Members of Governing Body, Head of the Institution, faculty, administrative staff, Alumnae, students and their parents. Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by NAAC, the peer team has taken a value judgement. The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are given in the following pages:

Section II : Criterion-Wise Analysis
Criterion 1 : Curricular Aspects
As this college is affiliated to the Calcutta University, Calcutta, it follows the syllabi prescribed by the parent University for Arts, Science and Commerce faculties in the annual pattern. The college offers 18 programmes including PG (Zoology) and Electronics and U.G. programmes in the faculties of Pure Sciences, Life Sciences, Commerce and Arts. The existing curricula for a subject are reviewed and updated by the UG Board of Studies of Calcutta University in compliance with the guidelines framed by the UG Council of Calcutta University as per the guidelines laid down by the UGC. The college introduced PG courses in Zoology and Electronics during the last three years. The college takes about 1-2 years to introduce a new programme of study in view of the criteria and the paraphernalia required by the Govt. for sanctioning affiliation.
There is provision for academic audit by the Calcutta University. However, the academic committee of the college regularly assess the academic progress of each department within a stipulated time period.

It is praise worthy that the college authorities take initiatives for 'On-job Training programme' of sericulture for the final year students at CSR & TI, Murshidabad, W.B., Campus interview for Commerce department, Career Fair, establishment of e-learning course in collaboration with the DOEACC Centre etc.

The college may start more Computers and IT based as well as management courses at UG level and also start some more MA and M.Sc. courses.

Feedback on programs and interaction with academic peers and employers is one of the ways to be relevant in the changing context. Feedback given by inspection teams of the Parent University and UGC are certainly helpful, but not enough. The college could establish a formal system of feedback on programs as well as interaction with academic peers and employers, preferably with an external expert facilitating the proceedings.

Criterion II : Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
The students are selected for admission to various courses on the basis of their academic record. Selection is made mainly in order of merit and the merit lists are published and displayed on the notice board for notification of all concerned. The college publishes updated prospectus every year for information and guidance of the students for admission to various courses.

The college has made provisions for assessing students' knowledge and skills for a particular programme just after admission like class test for students. The college provides bridge/remedial courses to the educationally disadvantaged students. Tutorial classes and special classes are arranged for the educationally disadvantaged students within the routine schedule or beyond the routine in some of the subjects, so that they can cope with the other advanced students. The college arranges special practical classes during summer recess period so that the learners would be able to perform in a better manner at the University final practical examinations.

The college encourages the teachers to make a well-planned teaching plan. The heads of the department of different streams frame module on which the entire course plan of an academic year is covered within stipulated period of time as mentioned in the academic calendar. The teachers also take the advantage of using, models, charts, maps etc. to stimulate the inquisitive mind of the learners who are entering for the first time in the arena of higher education in a conventional system. In the present system of the University of Calcutta the students are assessed at the end of each academic year. The evaluation is done by the college at the end of 1st six months by holding half yearly examination.

The college observed 250-260 working days and 210-220 teaching days during the previous year. The ratio of full-time teachers to part-time teachers is 57:29 and 56:30, and the ratio of teaching to non-teaching staff is 110:45 and 113:45 during the last two years. The evaluation methods are communicated to the students at the beginning of the year. The students are provided with an academic calendar at the time of admission wherein the necessary information regarding half-yearly and annual examinations are explicitly mentioned. The performance of the students of various streams of different programmes are centrally monitored during the half yearly examinations conducted by the College within 5-6 month of their entry into such programmes. However as per recent circular of the University of Calcutta, the evaluation system has been restructured by splitting the three-year degree course in three parts w.e.f. 2005-06 academic year. As per circular, the students for advanced courses will be evaluated by conducting the half-yearly examination and four class tests per subject will be organised by the college authority before the commencement of the University examination at the end of the first year.

The college has 54 permanent faculty members. Full time teachers are recruited by the Secretary (Principal/Teacher-in-charge) on behalf of the Governing Body on receiving the recommendations from West Bengal College Service Commission. While the part time teachers are recruited by the Principal by interviewing the candidates through a small selection committee comprising of Principal, Vice-Principal, Head of the Deptt and Secy. of Teachers Council. However, the Management (G.B.) can appoint teachers on adhoc basis and also for self-financing courses. The college has the freedom and the resources to appoint and pay temporary/adhoc teaching staff. The governing body has the freedom to appoint teachers and to pay them consolidated salary Rs.8000/- from the college maintenance fund as per the latest circular issued by the Ministry of Higher Education and the University of Calcutta.

Some of the members of the teaching faculty had attended seminars/conferences/workshops as participants at National level.

The college follows the self-appraisal method to evaluate the performance of the faculty in teaching, research and extension. The college authorities take full cognisance of the self-appraisal report submitted by the teachers before recommending their cases of promotion/placement to the next higher post and scale of pay to the screening committee. The college collects student evaluation information on campus experience.

Evaluation of the teachers of the respective departments by the students through a questionnaire about teaching methodologies followed by the faculty members. The college has organised a few UGC sponsored seminars.

During the last two years no teachers have applied for taking the opportunity of F.D.P as per norms of UGC. Now the college needs to take the next step and encourage the teachers to participate in faculty development programmes and to act as resource persons at these seminars and also organize more seminars, workshops etc. in the college.

Apart from regular teaching, the faculty is encouraged to take the responsibility of the different committees and improve the efficiency of the college. Being member of the different committees each member of the staff plays a healthy role in directing the affairs of the college and improving the overall performance of the college.

The college may establish more national and international linkages for teaching and/or research.

Departmental societies can be formed which can facilitate holding inter and intra-department competitions like debates, paper reading contests etc. Inter college competitions may also be organised to give better exposure to the students.

Criterion -III - Research, Consultancy and Extension
The institution has limited scope to promote research culture among the faculty and student's. Out of the 54 teachers, the college has already 26 Ph.Ds., 5 M.Phills and 23 PGs. Some of the teachers are engaged in doing some research work under Minor Research project scheme financed by the UGC. The teachers are provided with study leave on demand. The departmental teachers of respective special papers guide their students in preparing their project work. The college is not a recognised centre for Ph.D. Some teachers are engaged in postdoctoral works in their specific fields, some of them have been publishing papers in some reputed journals; some of the teachers are contemplating to apply for obtaining financial support from the UGC under Minor Research Project.

The college has one ongoing project with total outlay of Rs.65,000/- in the Department of Chemistry. Teachers of some departments are generous enough to render there expertise in different programmes whenever they are approached by some institutions for the same. The various extension activities of the college are community development, Health and hygiene awareness, Blood Donation Camp, Aids Awareness, Environmental Awareness etc. through N.C.C. and Students' Union of the college The students and teachers are encouraged to participate in extension activities by emphasising the significance of such activities. The college is providing necessary infrastructural facilities for establishment of a study centre of IGNOU and for holding PG classes of Madurai Kamraj University. The college has taken steps to prevent the spread of Malaria and Dengu among the students of the college through spraying of insecticides in the vicinity of the college campus. The Department of Zoology have conducted a survey to identify Thalassemic population(using HPLC technique) which is unique and useful contribution to the society. Recently the college authorities accepted the proposal for establishing a study centre for activation of Master Degree in Bioinformatics in collaboration with DOEACC, Jadavpur University Unit of Ministry of Science & Technology, GOI. The college also organised 'On the Job Training Programme' for the final year students of the Sericulture Department with the Central Sericultural Training and Research Institute.

National and International collaborations too could go a long way to enhance educational horizon of the college. With this goal in mind, the college could make efforts to generate funds for research. Getting financial assistance for research would further encourage the faculty to engage itself in research.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Process
The college has a campus area of 2.03 acres. The physical facilities include classrooms, Central library, Computer Centre, Canteen, and gymnasium etc.

The college plans to meet the need of augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth by using land/space adjacent to the annexed building where the staff quarters are situated. The college plans to construct two or three storied building to keep pace with the academic growth of the college. In future the college plans to construct another building on the extreme east corner of the college campus. The infrastructure is maintained by the development fees paid by the students along with the grant received from UGC from time to time for the construction of the building. The college makes efforts for optimum utilisation of its infrastructure facilities. The college encourages the use of the academic facilities by external agencies like other colleges to conduct classes in the evening session. During holidays the college premises are utilised by holding various public examinations, organised by PSC, Govt. of West Bengal etc. Efforts are made to keep the campus beautiful and pollution free - two gardens - one on the frontal side of the college premises and other to the backside of the college premises of the annexed building is made. The college authorities are conscious about maintaining the embankment of the pond from time to time. The college has made two small mulberry gardens in the campus for Sericulture course.

The library has an advisory committee. A library committee has been set up by the Governing body to look after the functioning of the college Library. There are 25245 books and the library subscribes to 18 journals/periodicals. The lending of books, purchase of books and stock verification are computerised. The library observes 260 working days and it works for 9 hours daily. The library has added 442 books worth Rs.79598 for UG classes 29 books worth Rs.53297 for PG classes during year before last and 404 books worth Rs.74736 for UG classes and 50 books worth Rs.53212 for PG classes during the last year. Books relating to different competitive examinations for career/service and journals on current information, general knowledge and other documents are available for consultation only in the reading room. The library provides facilities like computers and Internet.

The college provides central computer facility. The working hours of the computer centre are upto 7.30 p.m. during weekdays and Saturdays. The computer centre helps in developing computer aided learning packages jointly run by the departments of Physics and Electronics in collaboration with DOEACC, Jadavpur University Unit, Ministry of Science and Technology, Govt.of India. Computers and their accessories are maintained by each individual department, while the office maintains its computers with all its software and hardware through a person who has been given appointment for preparation of data, their storing as well as maintenance of the same. The college needs to make use of the services of inter-university centres like IUCAA, CEC, INFLIBNENT etc.

The students union organised a 'Blood Donation Camp' to cater to the need of blood by the blood bank authority. The various physical and infrastructure facilities available in the college are Indoor games such as Carrom, Table Tennis, Chess etc. The college authority encourages sports activities by providing necessary help and guidance to the student union for conducting annual sports of the college. Incentives are given to the outstanding sports persons. None of the students participated in state, regional, national and international meets during the last year. The N.C.C. unit of the college is quite active and helps in organising a number of activities in the college apart from doing voluntary duties like traffic control during festivals etc. A number of students have passed 'B' and 'C' certificates of N.C.C. A few students have also participated in Republic Day parade camps.

Hostel facilities are not available in the college campus for the students.
Addition of more books other than textbooks, computer aided learning packages, medical facilities, hostel facilities etc. would go a long way to equip the college to perform its mission more efficiently.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
The percentage of students appearing for the final year examination after completing the minimum period of study was about 90-95% in UG and 100% in PG. Prominent positions like Managers, Surgeons, Directors, Dy. General Managers, Doctors, Engineers, Lecturers etc. are held by some of the alumni. The college maintains the record of alumni and keeps updating this record from time to time. The college does not have any record about the UGC/CSIR/GATE qualified candidates. The College publishes its prospectus every year. The contents of the prospectus comprise general information regarding programs offered, fees structure, faculties of various departments including general and advanced courses etc. The financial aid is made available to the students in the form of scholarships. 335 students received financial aid during the year before last and 406 student's during the last year in the form of post matric scholarship. 59 students received financial assistance awarded from the students aid fund during the year before last and 68 student's during the last year. The college authority also provides support to the meritorious but financially disadvantaged students through payment of college fees from the Students' Aid Fund. Sometimes a few teachers also provide necessary financial support and books on their own to the financially distressed but meritorious students.

The college has not appointed a placement officer but the employment cell works collectively. The teachers take initiatives to make an arrangement for organizing campus interview within the college premises. Recently, the department of commerce arranged for an extensive session by inviting a number of entrepreneurs and other companies who persuaded the students for availing of various job opportunities offered by those companies. The teachers participate in academic and personal counselling. 43 students got employed through personal counselling during the last two years in private services.

The employment cell motivates the students to seek self-employment. The alumni association of the college informally meets very often and took part actively in organising a number of social works for community development which include organising blood donation camp, health check up camp, distribution of medicine to the disadvantaged people of the locality. The Alumni Association has helped the college to start an independent Institute of Management and Technology (DAITM) affiliated to West Bengal University of Technology on the campus. All policies and criteria of admission are made clear to the prospective students through college prospectus. The criteria for admission have also been displayed on the general notice board. The college authority placed admission notice and admission procedures on the college website. The admission policy of the college with regard to overseas students is same as in the case of other students, but a very few students from Bangladesh approached this college for admission. Support services like socio cultural activities; welfare programmes are provided to the overseas students.

The various support services available to students are Indoor games, outdoor games, students' magazine, cultural activities etc. In addition to that students' fest 'Maitri' is organised by the students' union each year in the college premises. The non-teaching staff of the college also brings out their own magazine and arrange their cultural programmes.

The college needs to strengthen the employment cell. The college could form Parent-Teacher Association (P.T.A) and get their assistance in furthering its educational goals. The college would do well by providing more facilities for Games and encouraging the students to participate at inter university and National level competitions.

Criterion VI : Organisation and Management
The college has an efficient internal co-ordinating and monitoring mechanism. Vice-Principal, Accounts Bursar, Administrative Bursar and Academic Bursar look after the internal discipline, accounts, establishment and running of classes respectively. In addition, there are vice-presidents/advisors of different societies who offer timely advice to the students for running the students bodies smoothly. The college principal appoints members of different committees and cells for smooth functioning of the college.

The secretary of Students' Union of the college is an ex-officio member of the College Governing Body. The Secretary of the Union is a member of the Academic Committee. Four elected teachers are also members of the Governing Body of the college and two elected members from the non-teaching staff of the college.

The college has an in-built mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff. The work efficiencies of employees in the departments is checked by the concerned head of the departments but Principal and Governing body are final authority.

The college follows the academic calendar of the University and has formed a special committee for preparing the academic calendar/prospectus of the college. All the decisions of the selection committee are approved by the governing body.

The college follows the Govt. supported fee structure in BA/B.Sc./B.Com and self-financing fee structure in PGDCA/DCA/Visual courses. There is no change in tuition fees during the last three years. The college has a budget of Rs.2,48,03,153.39 and the amount actually spent was Rs.2,53,72,838.05 during the last year under various heads of expenditure. The college has an internal audit mechanism.

Various loan facilities are available to the teaching and non-teaching staff members from bank through the college. This loan is sanctioned as term loan and instalment of repayment is deducted from monthly salary. The purchase of major items is made through committees by inviting quotations and order is placed after approval of the Principal.

The college could do well to mobilise resources, better organise association of past students, form P.T.A., get assistance from society at large and benefit the same society in return. Starting of more self-financing and vocational courses can increase the income of the college.

Criterion VII : Healthy Practices
The college adopted mechanism for internal quality checks. The Principal nominates members of different committees to maintain internal quality of the institution. The powers and functions of different committees are delegated by the principal.

The college imparts value-based education through teachers, extramural lectures, awareness programmes, relief operations, blood donations, community extension activities, observation of pujas, and national days.

Civic responsibilities are inculcated among the students through NCC, Deployment of NCC volunteers in festivals, observation of traffic week, awareness programmes on AIDS, polio, plantation and keeping the surrounding clean, blood donation for sick etc.

The college is geared to achieve its specific goals and objectives through rigorous course work, organising seminars, extramural lectures for intellectual development, by providing study material, computers, and Internet facility to update knowledge, providing facilities for indoor games and Gymnasium for better health etc.

The college has secretary of Students' Union as ex-officio member and four teacher representatives and two from non-teaching staff as elected members of the college Governing Body. The Secretary of the Students' Union is a member of Academic Committee.

The Students' Union leaders work in harmony with the college administration for organising various programmes.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
The Peer Team, after going through the SSR and after its visit to various academic and physical facilities, is satisfied by the progress of this college.
The Peer Team would like to commend the college for some of the positive features of it's approach to quality assurance and standards and at the same time points out some of its concerns to the college authorities for their consideration. The Peer Team would like to commend the institution for the following aspects:

*Better opportunities and facilities may be provided for sports and co-curricular activities to encourage student's participation in University/State/ National level competitions.

*The college may take steps to provide career counselling, personal counselling to encourage students for going in for higher studies and competitive examinations.

*The college may take steps to establish a formal Grievance Redressal Mechanism, and Campus Placement Cell for the students

*The library needs to add more latest text and reference books. The computerisation of the library by installing latest library software may be completed on priority basis. The Library may also be housed in a bigger area.

*Teachers may be encouraged to get more research grants from various bodies like UGC, CSIR, DBT, DST etc. and some matching research grant may be provided by the college.

*Resource generation through self-financing courses and donations may be increased so as to better maintain the existing buildings and infrastructure.

*The teachers may be encouraged to participate in Seminars, Workshops, Conferences etc. and publish research papers at National and International levels.

*Formation of Parent-Teacher Association and better use of alumni association using their services for the development of infrastructure in the college and placement of students may be considered.

*The faculty may be encouraged to undertake consultancy services and research projects in collaboration with business and industry.

*The departments may be encouraged to form departmental societies and organise more student activities related to the subject like debates, paper reading contests and declamation contests and organise Inter College Competitions.

*The college may organise inter college competitions and more departments should be encouraged to organise National Seminars/Workshops etc.

*The college may provide Hostel facilities to attract students from other distant places, especially for girl students.

*Better health care facilities may be provided in the campus and Gymnasium may also be made roomier for its better use.

*The college may construct an auditorium.

The Peer Team is of the opinion that this exercise will be useful to the institution to initiate the quality enhancement strategies towards further growth and development.
The Peer Team places on record its appreciation of the Principal and the entire team for this introspection undertaken. We wish them all the best in their pursuit of excellence in higher education.
