Nayayadhish Tatyasaheb Athalye Arts And Ved. S. R. Sapre commerce College, Devrukh- 415804, District-Ratnagiri, Maharashtra. Devrukh Shikshan Prasarak Mandal was established in 1927 with an objective to provide primary, secondary and higher education in Sangmeshwar Taluka of Ratnagiri District. Accordingly, facilities for higher learning were created by establishing Nya. Tatyasaheb Athalye Arts and Ved. S.R. Sapre Commerce College by the Mandal in 1972. The motto of this college is : 'Knowledge is Power', and the vision of the institution is 'strengthening knowledge through education'. Besides this college, the management runs Junior College of Arts and Commerce, Computer Training Centre, Vocational Education at +2 stage (MCVC), Junior College of Science, High School and English medium School.

The college is located at Devrukh in Sangmeshwar taluka. It is a rural hilly taluka situated on the western slopes of the Sahyadri mountain ranges in Konkan region of Maharashtra. Presently, the mandal has 13.18 acres campus.

Initially the college was affiliated to the Shivaji University, Kolhapur and subsequently to University of Mumbai in 1974. It gained permanent affiliation within 10 years of the commencement.

The college is presently housed in its own main building with a total built up area of 1545 sq. meters with 17 rooms/halls. The mandal management periodically reviews and monitors the requirements and physical facilities of the college.

The college has 11 permanent faculty members supported by 3 temporary grant-in-aid faculty, 3 part-time (CHB) teachers and a librarian. Among these, 3 hold Ph.D. and 3 M.Phil degrees. It has 11 non-teaching supporting staff.

The college runs 2 UG programmes in Arts and Commerce and a Ph.D. centre in Marathi subject. The students strength in current academic year is 473 in UG and 3 in Ph.D. programme.

The college volunteered for institutional accreditation by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore. The self study reports necessary for the exercise was submitted to NAAC in September 2003. The NAAC constituted the Peer Team consisting of Dr. K.D. Vasava, Former Vice Chancellor of Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar Open University, Ahmedabad (Gujarat) as Chairman and Dr. B.C. Neelakanta, Professor of Economics, JSS College for Women, Saraswathipuram, Mysore (Karnataka) as Member. The Peer Team visited the institution on 8th and 9th December, 2003.

As a part of the pre-visit exercise, the Peer Team members had independently scrutinized the SSR provided to them. The team held meetings with the Principal, members of the Governing Council, Faculty members, supporting staff, representative groups of students of both the Arts and Commerce streams, parents and a few alumni who were available for interaction. The team visited the academic complex, administrative section, library, computer-centre, play ground and sports facilities, guest house, canteen, arts gallery, assembly hall and other physical facilities. The college has 8 departments under the faculty of arts and commerce.

Based on detailed inspection of the available infrastructure, verification of SSR and extensive discussion with the college community, the team brings out the following observations and insights as useful pointers of the quality of the institution.

Section 2 : Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
The institution offers 2 UG programmes - B.A. and B.Com both in Marathi medium of instruction through faculty of Arts and Commerce. It has Ph.D. centre in Marathi subject since 1988. In consistence with the objective of the institution, the management has launched 4 computer courses on self-financing basis for the benefit of college students. These are : (i) Certificate course in Information Technology, (ii) Certificate course in Computer Operation, (iii) Diploma in Computer Applications, and (iv) Basic Computer Training.

In present day university system, the university structures and designs the courses and sets the syllabi. Hence, the affiliated college has no role to play in either framing or updating and modifying the syllabi. In view of this, the institution encourages the faculty to involve directly or indirectly in such process through representation in competent bodies of the parent university.

The college has presently 14 course options under the faculty of Arts (B.A.) and 2 in Commerce (B.Com). These programmes are operated as per the norms and provisions of the parent university.

Criterion II : Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
Teaching and evaluation process is governed by university rules and regulations. Admissions of students to this college are made in accordance with the rules prescribed by the University and Govt. of Maharashtra. Generally preference is given to the in-house students studying in junior college run by the management. However, owing to limited number of students, all the students who apply for admissions get enrolled in the college.

Conventional class-room lecture method is practiced in teaching - learning activities in addition to a few lectures using OHP especially in Geography, Economics, English, Hindi and Accountancy. More OHP and slides projector have to be procured and A/V aids should be utilised.

Teachers are recruited observing UGC and Govt. norms and procedure. Out of 12 faculty (11 permanent and 1 temporary), 7 have undergone orientation programmes and 11 have undergone refresher courses. In the last three years, 4 teachers have attended the workshops organised in Maharashtra and 3 teachers have attended national level seminars. The Peer Team recommends that all the academic staff may be further encouraged to participate in seminars and conferences.

Students are assessed by conducting periodic internal class tests and terminal examinations. The promotion of the students from F.Y.B.A/ B.Com to S.Y.B.A./ B.Com and S.Y.B.A./ B.Com to T.Y.B.A./ B.Com has been done by the institution based on evaluation internally as per university of Mumbai norms. The final year examinations are conducted by the University. The teaching and learning are satisfactory.

There is no ongoing Minor Research Project or departmental research project. Research base of the college needs to be strengthened. The Peer Team suggests that teachers should be encouraged to undertake Minor Research Projects.

The college is mainly operating as UG teaching institution and a Ph.D. centre with one guide. Hence, it has yet to explore its expertise for consultancy work.

The college has 2 N.S.S. units having 200 (114 boys and 86 girls) volunteers. Two programme officers have been entrusted with the responsibility of this unit. The students actively participate in various extension activities like 'gutkha hatao', 'know and save nature', 'clean college clean village', AIDs awareness, health and hygiene, tree plantation and social work through N.S.S.
