NAAC report of Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil College

Section 1: Preface
The youth of Walwa and Shirala Tehasil were deeply influenced and inspired by Late Mahatma Jyotiba Phule, Rajarshi Shahu Maharaj and educationist of the poor Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil popularly known as 'Karmaveer Anna'. About 26 such motivated youths of Walwa and Shirala Tehasil planted this small sapling of Mahatma Phule Shikshan Sanstha in the year 1954 to provide total education to rural and educationally backward students, in a small and old building of 700 square feet area.

In those days Urun-Islampur was a very small town; nevertheless its contribution towards freedom struggle was quite substantial and that was indicated from the list of great tradition of Freedom fighters from this Tehasil - Krantisinh Nana Patil, Pandu Master, Hutatma Kisan Ahir, Baburao Patankar, Mr. Yashawantrao Chavan Former Dy. Prime Minister of India, Krantiveer Nagnath Naikawadi [Nagnath Anna], Social activist - Acharya Jawadekar, Loknete Rajaram Bapu Patil, Kranti-Agrani G.D. Bapu Lad, Anna Bhau Sathethe novelist and social worker, renowned 'Lavani Samrat' Patthe Bapurao-the folk song writer. The women from this area are also actively involved in freedom struggle and social activities as well, such as Smt. Indumati Patankar, Smt. Rajmati Patil, Smt. Laxmibai Naikwadi.

This Sanstha shouldered the responsibility of spreading education and provided unique opportunities to the brilliant youths of this area. The Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil College, Urun-Islampur was established in the year 1961 with the beginning of two divisions of first year of Arts and Commerce with 95 students. Today it has grown to 2000 students and 17 departments. The hallmark of this institution has been the right combination of value education and development of overall personality of the students through academic, cultural and sports activities. The College has good discipline and congenial atmosphere.

Besides the various teaching departments and administrative block there are central library, computer centre, sports facilities, canteen, welfare schemes, grievance redressal cell and vehicle parking shed. They also have a small canteen and less maintained and partially vacant boys hostel.

The college is funded and managed by the shikshan sanstha. Further, at the beginning of the year the Principal forms different committees for successful implementation and completion of the planned activities. The emotional attachment of the teachers, students, administrative and other staff of the college is appreciable which ensures very congenial and family atmosphere in the college.

Karmaveer Bhaurao Patil College volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and submitted its self-study report 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 during August 19 & 20, 2003. Dr. Antony Stella, Adviser of 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 Board of Management and Principal J.K. Patil.

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
To suit the need of the time and the requirement of the area, the college started with two faculties and seven subjects in 1961. Then with the demand and need of the people from this rural area, the science faculty was started in the year 1970-71. To fulfill the requirement of the post-graduate classes, the post-graduate programmes have been started in the year 1975. New courses have been introduced from time to time keeping in view the needs of the society from time to time.

Today this multi faculty college has seventeen departments and has a total enrolment of about two thousand students. At present the college has in Arts faculty undergraduate programmes in Sociology, English, Hindi, Marathi, Psychology, Economics, Political Science, History and Geography and M.A. courses in Economics, Languages and Commerce. Similarly in science faculty the college has teaching programs in Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. To ensure that the students do not lag behind in the field of information technology, the college has started various short-term courses in Information Technology. In addition, the college runs Bachelor of Computer Science. Besides this, there is NCC Army Wing, and Nature Club and NSS unit. Through these curricular and co-curricular program options, the college meets the objectives it has set forth for itself in a satisfactory manner.

In line with the policy of Shivaji University, the college offers vertical mobility in a few subjects. However, part time and full time self-financing programs of local and national relevance can further be introduced. This will not only generate resources for the institution but will also raise the employability of the students.

Criterion II: Teaching - Learning and Evaluation
Teaching, learning and evaluation are carried out well. They follow the annual system of examination, as laid down by the University. The students at the under-graduate level are admitted on the basis of merit. There are no students from other states. Most of the students in the college are from the adjoining area.

As far as the teaching faculty is concerned there are thirty-nine permanent teachers and five temporary teachers. The student teacher ratio in the college is sixty is to one. However, the teachers of the college are committed to their profession. Seven teachers hold Ph.D. degree and sixteen are M.Phil degree holders i.e. Twenty percent of the teachers have Ph.D. degree, over sixteen teachers have PG as their highest qualification.

Some of the departments namely Chemistry and Marathi have good faculty, while other departments have in-sufficient teaching faculty. The shortage of teachers has forced the college to appoint temporary teachers. The college has freedom to appoint adhoc and temporary teachers. But they need enhancement of emoluments to attract academically stronger faculty and to retain them for a longer time.

There are few participations in national and international seminars. This should be encouraged further which will lead to better exposure and enhance the quality of teaching and allied activities. During last three years, some teachers have participated in faculty development programmes and workshops. There is need for adequate emphasis on faculty development programs.

There is a need of introducing and adopting better teaching-learning methods through they have audio-visual aids.

Teachers are recruited by the committee as per UGC/University guideline. However, there are no appointments for the last two years.

Self-appraisal methods are also used for teachers. Teachers are required to submit annual confidential reports. These are actually used for improvement in quality of teaching.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy & Extension
At present the college provides leave for research activities and this is the only research related support provided by the college. Some of the teachers pursue their research work and publish papers. In languages, Economics, English and Chemistry some research activities are taking place. Funds should be provided in the College budget for initial development of research activity at college level. Teachers should be encouraged to apply for UGC, ICSSR and other finding agencies for research projects and seminars.

Some members of the faculty have the potential to offer consultancy to the local industries. There is evidence that some of the local industries have been helped by the faculty members. This scope and potential to offer consultancy has to be formalized and strengthened.

The college has a designated person as in-charge of allied activities. These include Social Service, Awareness Programs, Health awareness and other type of activities. Two teachers have delivered radio talks on socio-economics aspects at AIR.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The campus is built on 7.25 acres of land and is well maintained. The infrastructure is being used well. Besides, hostels and class rooms the college has separate buildings for NCC, Library, Gym, Open air auditorium etc. Some new buildings are also proposed for future.

The college Library has about Fifty five thousand books shared jointly by the junior college. It is housed in an old building and the holdings are not fully computerized. The library has no Internet, reprography and computer facilities. The college has no Audio-Video section and Language laboratory.

There are sports facilities for a number of games like Badminton, Volley Ball, Basket Ball, Hand Ball, Table Tennis & Judo etc. The sports ground is to be more developed. Students who are proficient in sports are provided incentive. The Gymkana has basic equipment. The college has fourteen room hostel. Looking at the admission capacity, this appears to be less reasonable for the students.

Criterion V: Organisation and Management
The college has a responsive Board of Management. The President and the members take keen interest in the affairs of the college. The Principal takes keen interest in all the day to day matters of the college. Each and every section of the college is personally looked after by the Board and the Principal. They are supported by administrative and accounts sections. However, to bring in more innovative ideas into the discussions of the Board, the Board may consider inducting more members who are exposed to the modern developments in higher education.

The overall management is good and responsive. The academic session is quite 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.

Criterion VI: Healthy Practices
The college has a good number of Healthy practices. A few practices which are worth mentioning under this parameter are recorded below:

Section 3: Overall Analysis
There are many good practices of the college which the peer team would like to appreciate, especially the following:

The college functions in a systematic and cohesive manner.

The academic caliber of students is satisfactory looking at the backward and weaker classes catchment area. There is a mixture of urban and rural background students.

The participation in cultural activities is appreciable.

The student activities of the college including the science club and the college magazine are appreciable.

Looking at the present scenario of the institution, the following suggestions are made for consideration and implementation by various authorities of the College.

While the junior college has stabilized fairly well, the management may pay more attention to consolidating the strengths of the senior college.

There is need of more extension activities and seminars at local and regional levels. The teachers should be encouraged for participation in conferences, workshop, refresher courses and orientation programme outside the state.

The scope and potential of members of the faculty to offer consultancy to local industries may be strengthened.

The presence of large number of minorities in the local community may be encouraged to take advantage of higher education from this institution.

There is eagerness among the students for more sports facilities and activities.

There is an urgent demand for more internet facility for students.

The college can start more certificate and diploma courses in areas like physio-therapy and in areas of local relevance both for resource generation and for providing training in new professional areas relevant to the demand.

The college may place more emphasis on interaction with the society on value education and Gandhian thoughts.

The students should be encouraged to go on education and cultural/ social tours outsides the state.

More books and journals should be added to the library along with Xerox, computer and Internet facilities.

The college may create internal quality assurance cell (IQAC) for continuous quality enhancement and monitoring.

The peer team deeply appreciates the cooperation and courtesy extended by the college Management, Principal, Co-ordinator steering committee-NAAC, Teachers, Student and Non-Teaching staff.

Sundarban species found in Konkan

Pune: The mangrove species Heritiera littoralis Dryand, from which the name Sundarbans has been derived, has for the first time been found in Ratnagiri and Sindhudurg districts by botanists.A research paper about the findings of two botanists — research fellow of the botany department of Shivaji University, Sajid Sheikh and associate professor of Sangli-based Karmavir Bhaurao Patil College, MV Gokhale— has been approved and published by the international quarterly journal on life science Bioscan recently.Gokhale and Sheikh told that the discovery has highlighted the richness of the mangrove biodiversity in coastal Maharashtra. The trees of this species are beautiful and hence called Sundari and its large-scale presence has given the name to the Sundarbans.

The tree, known for its stunning beauty, is known as Looking Glass Tree and the leaves have silvery dorsal surface. In 2009, we found few individuals of these species on the bank of a creek in Ratnagiri. At that time, the proper identification could not be done. However, after going through various reference books, we realised that it is Heritiera littoralis Dryand, Gokhale said.
The botanists studied the regeneration and the flowering of the species besides seedling morphology.

The seeds of the mangroves wash away with tides and germinate in different areas. In such cases, the seedling morphology proves helpful for establishing the species, Sheikh said. In 1901, botanist T Cooke had recorded the presence of the species in Karwar, Karnataka.
The botanists have prepared a nursery of the saplings of this species, which now has 20 individual trees.

There are only 42 individual trees in Sindhudurg and Ratnagiri. These are on the bank of the creeks and face threat due to soil erosion, Gokhale said.Generally, Maharashtra does not get any attention from the Centre for mangrove conservation as the mangrove forests on the west coast are not diverse and rich, compared to those on the east coast. But the botanists differ, Maharashtra alone has 19 mangrove species, of which five are rare. The government should pay serious attention to mangrove conservation, they said.
