Media coverage of Chintamanrao College of Commerce, Sangli Maharashtra, Maharashtra

NAAC report of Chintamanrao College of Commerce

Section 1: Preface
It was during 1958, that the idea germinated in the minds of some progressive and renowned citizens in Sangli, like Shri. B.A. Daftardar, Shri D.V. Chaphalkar, Shri R.V. Desai, Shri Kantilal Shah and Shri Rambhau Hardikar, that an educational institution could be set up in Sangli as a tribute to the name and fame and generosity of His Highness Chintamanrao Patwardhan, on the occasion of his 71st birthday ceremony.

Vishrambag, situated on the outskirts of Sangli had already started developing as a centre of educational institutions, with Deccan Education Society's Willingdon College set up way back in the year 1919 and Walchand College of Engineering, set up in 1947. The need for an institution rendering commerce education was identified. Hence it was decided to establish a commerce college to be run by Deccan Education Society, Pune, having a long-standing reputation of about seven decades.

The college was set up in June 1960, and began its functioning in Willingdon College building, under the able leadership of the founder Principal Shri Devadatt A. Dabholkar. The formal inauguration of the college was made on 12th September 1960 at the auspicious hands of the then Vice-President of India, Dr. S. Radhakrishnan. The college started as an undergraduate college in commerce.

An independent building of the college was constructed in about one and a half year's time, from September 1960, and it was inaugurated on 15th February 1962, at the hands of the then Defence Minister of Govt. of India, Shri Yashwantrao Chavan.

From the academic year 1962-63 the college started functioning in its own spacious building spread over twenty-five acres. By 1985 the college expanded to offer four courses of study namely B.Com., M.Com, D.B.M. and M.B.A.. However, D.B.M. and M.B.A. courses were transferred to a newly set up sister institute, namely, Institute of Management & Research in June 1995.

The Chintamanrao College of Commerce, Sangli (Maharashtra) volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted its self-study report a few months back. A peer team was constituted by the council to visit the institution and validate the self-study report. The peer team consisting Professor Vinod P. Saxena, former Vice-Chancellor of Jiwaji University, Gwalior as Chairman and Professor K.S. Chalam, Director, Academic Staff College, Andhra University as member visited the college on August 21, 2003. Dr. Antony Stella, Adviser of the National Assessment and Accreditation Council successfully co-ordinated the entire programme.

The peer team examined in detail the performance of the institution, its infrastructure, curricular and co-curricular programmes, and other relevant aspects of its functioning. The peer team also held discussions with the members of the faculty, the present students, alumni, parents and non-teaching staff in addition to the members of the Management Committee and the Principal Dr. S.S. Sahasrabudhe.

Based on the above exercise and keeping in mind the criteria identified by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council, the Peer Team has made an objective assessment of the institution and reports as under.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
At present the college has commerce faculty comprising three departments, Commerce; Accountancy; and Business Economics, Banking and Statistics. Primarily the College provides teaching of undergraduate course combinations to the students. In line with the policy of Shivaji University, the college offers limited vertical mobility through its M.Com programme.

Within this range of programme options, in keeping with its mission, the College takes special efforts to prepare the students for suitable careers in commerce. The computer education provided to students needs to be strengthened. The proposal of the college to introduce supplementary programmes for skill development of the students may be given priority.

There are three major departments in the college. For other subjects they invite visiting faculty. Teachers of the college participate, if nominated, in the Board of Studies of the Shivaji University. Recent effort of the college to collect feedback from academic peers and employers supported by the 'College-Business-Community Interaction Cell' established in 2002 is appreciable. Efforts may be taken to systematically analyse the feedback to be presented to the Board of Studies of the Shivaji University for further action.

The linkage with the local industries for on the job training and placement efforts may be further formalized and strengthened.

Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
The college follows the annual system of examination as laid down by the Shivaji University. The students at the undergraduate level are admitted on the basis of merit. Most of the students in the college are from the city and adjoining area. The college has no tutorials for weaker students. To cater to the needs of the students who come from the rural area and from the disadvantaged section of the society, remedial programmes and tutorials are going to be initiated in a systematic manner.

Teaching-learning methods are mostly lecture oriented. Practical training and industrial tours add value to the teaching-learning process. The faculty have to pay attention to the use of more media and technology to enrich the teaching methods.

As far as the teaching faculty is concerned there are sixteen permanent teachers. The student-teacher ratio in the college is 60:1. Five teachers hold Ph.D. degrees, four have M.Phil. degrees and the remaining have post graduation as their highest qualification. Expertise available among the faculty is reflected in the Refresher Courses organized by the college for the Academic Staff College, Pune.

Tests / house tests are conducted in each quarter to check the progress and do the needful mid course correction. Report cards of the house tests are not sent to the parents to inform them of the progress of the students. Seventy-five percent of the attendance is insisted on for appearing in the final examination.

The college is governed by the society hence the faculty are recruited through them. Self-appraisal methods are used for the teachers. They have to submit annual confidential reports for promotions etc. These are also used for performance evaluation and improvement in quality of teaching. However, there is a need for adequate emphasis on faculty development.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy & Extension
Some of the faculty members are involved in research. The college should further insist on field and research work. There are a few teachers who pursue their research work and publish papers in refereed journals. They should be encouraged to take up major and minor research projects in subjects like Commerce and Economics. At present, the research activities are not supportive to the post-graduate courses.

Although the faculty members have the potential for offering consultancy services, its scope has to be strengthened and formalized. The expertise in areas like accountancy has to be developed to strengthen consultancy services.

The college has designated persons as in-charge of allied activities. The extension activities are undertaken as departmental activities by the NSS unit, Population Education Club and the NCC wing. The activities include blood donation camps, HIV-AIDS awareness sessions, energy conservation programmes, training the unemployed in vocational skills and other type of activities. Thus, NCC and NSS units of the college are active in their respective areas.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The campus is built on 25 acres of land near the highway. The vast open land can be developed into green patches. The college can productively utilize the land in planting income yielding varieties of plants.

The college Library has about thirty-eight thousand books and it is housed in a separate building and the holdings are being computerized. Internet facility is available to the principal and college staff for official work. The college has an Audio-video section, and a Seminar room. The computer facilities are not provided to students. However, many of them use computers outside.

There are sports facilities for a number of games like Cricket, Badminton, Volley Ball, and Table Tennis. There is a need to add facilities for the other major sports like Basket-ball and Hockey. At present there is no gymnasium. The sports facilities for girls are not seen. The sports ground is vast and includes turf wicket. There is a small pavilion complex opposite to the cricket ground. The ground needs more look after.

There is a canteen for students. Sanitation and cleanliness are taken care of by the college. Although there is a boys hostel on the campus, no student of the college stays there. There is no demand for the girls hostel too.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The students are informed about rules and regulations governing admission and about the facilities available through prospectus. The college has constituted an alumni association. Only some freeship is available to needy students. There are a few merit scholarship holders.

Students are informed about the career opportunities by displaying advertisements on the notice board. The career counseling centre is in the initial stages. Students have limited interaction and professional support from the teachers. The college conducts Talent Search Contest annually. The prospectus of the college gives the details of programmes offered. The college can develop contacts with recruiting agencies such as industry and business houses for providing opportunities to the pass outs.

Criterion VI: Organisation and Management
The college is managed by the Deccan Education society. The Principal takes keen interest in all the matters of the college. There are separate administration and accounts sections. The office staff is adequate looking to the number of students.

The overall management is satisfactory. The academic session is regular. There is significant focus on 75% attendance during the academic session. Reservation policy of the government is adhered to. The institution maintains confidential reports of the teachers and administrative staff.

The post graduate students may be involved in field work by taking them to nearby industries, commercial establishments, Banks etc to provide practical knowledge of the subjects taught in the class room.

The teaching of Advanced Accountancy, Cost Accounts and Income Tax require practical exercises. Prominent CAs of the city can be invited quite often to interact with the students.
