Initially it was started as a secondary school in 1939 by Maharaja Ganga Singh. It was upgraded as an intermediate college in 1946. Since 1954 it is imparting education at graduation level. In 1960 it started postgraduate teaching. Presently, the college offers PG courses in seven disciplines and also provides research guidance leading to Ph.D. degree in four subjects. The college was started with the goal to provide quality education to the youth of the area. The college was recognized by the UGC under sections 12(B) and 2(f) of the UGC Act in 1971.
The Government PG College Sri Ganganagar, volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) Bangalore. The institution submitted a Self Study Report (SSR) to NAAC. In response to this request, the NAAC constituted the Peer Team consisting of Prof. L.N.

Bhatia, Prof. of English & Director Academic Staff College, Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar, Prof. Ramesh Mathur, Principal, College of Life Sciences, Gwalior as members. The Peer Team visited the college for three days during August 11-13, 2006. Dr K.N. Madhusudanan Pillai, Academic Consultant, NAAC, coordinated the Peer Team visit.
The College campus is spread over 28 acres of land. The college has various physical facilities to run the academic programmes. It has support services like central library, play grounds, computer centre, UGC Network Resource Centre, auditorium, girls common room, career guidance cell, one hostel, a canteen and parking shed. It is conducting in all, 14 academic programmes in 26 departments covering faculties of science, arts and Commerce. Modern subjects like electronics and computer, environmental studies, commerce are there. There are 45 teachers, out of which 17 are lady teachers. There are 19 and 14 teachers with Ph.D. and M.Phil degrees respectively. There are 23 members on the non-teaching staff. Recruitment of the teaching and non-teaching staff is made as per UGC and state Government guidelines. The college is funded by the state Government of Rajasthan. The unit cost of education at the college including salary component works out to be Rs 7692/- and excluding salary is Rs. 622/-. The college is receiving students from the local catchment area only. The total student enrolment in the college is 2,021 of which 422 are PG students. Only 17 female students are enrolled in undergraduate courses while 55 are in PG classes. The average drop out rate of students is 19 percent. Pass percentage is good, however, the number of first divisioners at undergraduate level is quite less. The college follows annual system of examination with three internal tests. NET and SLET examinations have been passed by several students. Out of the total 285 working days teaching was conducted on about 180 days.
The Peer Team carefully went through and analyzed the SSR submitted by the college prior to its visit. During its three day visit of the college, the team visited all the departments, support services and other facilities. It also interacted with all the constituents of the college, viz; Principal, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni of the college. The team also evaluated co-curricular and extension activities of the college and validated the relevant available information and documents. Based upon the above exercise and keeping in view the seven criteria identified by NAAC, the Peer Team has taken up the value judgment. The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are presented as follows:
SECTION 2 : CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
The college imparts education at graduation level in B.A., B.Sc. and B.Com. and at PG level in English, Hindi, Sanskrit, Political Science, Economics, Geography and History. Redesigning of the curriculum is done by the University to which the college teachers contribute as members of the Board of Studies in respective subjects. Six members of the staff are on the Board of Studies of different subjects. The college has to follow the prescribed syllabi approved by the University. Annually published prospectus gives required information on all aspects of the college. Sensitization of the teachers to regional needs is required. Students of only Geography department go for academic tours while other students have to depend on classroom study and seminars. There is very little horizontal mobility and elective options. Since courses are fixed for each faculty there is hardly any academic flexibility. College has not introduced any new courses in last three years except Military Science under self financing scheme. No modern curriculum is run except electronics and computer. The college may make specific efforts for periodical review of the goals and objectives of the college. Feed back from academic peers may be obtained by the institution for review and redesigning of its programmes. College has not introduced any new programme in last three years although proposals for some programmes are already submitted. The college has not undertaken any faculty improvement programmes for its teachers.
CRITERION II: TEACHING, LEARNING AND EVALUATION
The students are admitted in the college on the basis of their merit in various courses. Tests and tutorials are organized in various departments. Advanced learners are reported to be benefited by seminars. This may be helping a particular student who prepares a particular topic, but not all. Betterment of educationally disadvantaged students is also the responsibility of the teacher and the institution. For their improvement efforts be made for arranging tutorials/ bridge courses/ remedial courses. College does not have effective running of teaching-learning programmes as in Chemistry as there is no teacher in that department. In science subjects it becomes difficult to teach theory and practicals with paucity of teachers. Colleges are not allowed to appoint adhoc /temporary teachers in basic courses. However, adhoc teachers can be appointed for self financing courses. Teachers make their term-wise teaching plan. Three terminal tests are organized to monitor the progress of the students. Besides lectures, the students also learn through practicals and field work where ever it is possible. Teaching is conducted for about 180 days. A teacher teaches 24 periods per week. The entire teaching load is shared by full time teachers. Teachers are recruited by the Rajasthan Public Service Commission. Six teachers have participated in symposia and conferences. 21 teachers have attended refresher courses and one has attended orientation course. No seminars /workshops are organized by the college. A few teachers have published books, however, original writing by the teachers is lacking. Although research work is conducted in some departments but no effort has been made to develop national or international rapport with fellow institutes. This could strengthen standard of research and generate financial resources. The class room teaching is through conventional method. Teachers in the departments of Science and Geography use OHP, Slide Projector, Charts and Maps to supplement their class room teaching. Many of the PG departments organize extension lectures by inviting eminent scholars. The department of Sanskrit organized 51 sanskrit speaking camps in which students of different colleges participated. Two national astrology camps were also organized in which 170 participants took part. The department of Geography organizes survey camps under the supervision of teachers. The drawing and details of work are submitted to the department. The students also participate in door to door sociological survey. The department has also organized adventure camps.
The department of Hindi is organizing a national conference this year with financial assistance from UGC and state government. The department has established links with Jaipur and Bikaner universities.
CRITERION III: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION
Out of 45 teachers 19 are Ph.D.s 14 M.Phils and 12 Post Graduates. Some teachers have taken their research degree by availing themselves of faculty improvement programme. Research activities in the college are minimal. Geography department is relatively more active in its research activities. Out of seven teachers, three possess Ph.D degree. One teacher of Geography has completed four UGC research projects, published 3 books and 21 research papers. He has attended 37 conferences including 2 international conferences. Teachers have conducted research projects on important problems relevant to the society. Sanskrit and Hindi departments have also produced substantial research work. In the departments of Geography, Political Science, Economics, Sanskrit and Hindi together have 8 Minor Research Projects. The total outlay of these projects is Rs. 3,01,000/ (Rupees Three Lac One Thousand) only. Many teachers of the post graduates departments have attended National Conferences while a few have attended International conferences.
The college does not provide any financial assistance and seed money for doing research work. There is no research committee appointed by the college which could monitor research activities in the college. There is only one full time research scholar while 14 are on part time basis. The full time research scholar in the department of Sanskrit enjoys JRF. The NSS Units of the college organize activities in many spheres like AIDS awareness, Blood donation, environmental awareness etc. Students are also benefited through camps, field visits etc. A village was adopted by NSS volunteers where several environmental and social awareness programmes were conducted. There should be a research committee which could decide the UGC priorities for regional problems and encourage the teachers to take up research. There are no research extension plans. Teachers/departments do not publicize their expertise.
CRITERION IV : INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES
Total area of college campus is 28 Acres. The college has an administrative block with account office of the Principal, establishment office and accounts officer. There are 26 class rooms, 06 laboratories, one staff room, girls common room, one office each for NSS, NCC and career guidance cell, an auditorium, one hostel for boys.

The college plans to meet its infrastructure needs through the funds available from state Government, UGC, M.P. and M.L.A. developmental funds, however, no special efforts have been made in this direction. Whatever space is available is being optimally used. Hostel is too small with accommodation for only 50 students. Four units of NSS also help in this effort.
