SECTION 3 - OVERALL ANALYSIS
The Self-study report of the Lyallpur Khalsa College, Jalandhar, and the two-day visit to the college has amply showed that this institution with a pre-partition history in Pakistanâ€™s Lyallpur (now Faisalabad) and its post-partition re-establishment in Jalandhar in 1948, has a long tradition of sincere hard work and excellence by all the scholars. The coordination between the management, the Principal and the faculty and staff has resulted in an overall efflorescence of the institution.
The 28 acre sprawling campus, the departmental buildings, labs, the lush green lawns with students sprouting like multi-colored flowers there in, all create an ambience of good hard work, teacher-student relationship of respect for each other. The information structure provided by the college is good. The newly established IT Department, the Biotechnology, Physiotherapy, commerce and Humanities and social science departments. All have their own space to work. The student facilities like library, canteen, gym, hostel, etc. provide the student with facilitative environment of study and opportunities for development. The open-air theatre and the creative cultural opportunities for students lead to their all round development from nourishing modern yet steeped in culture of Punjab. The administration by the Head of the Institution, Prof. S. S. Chatha, gives the impression of a well-oiled machines wherein the parts seem to work by self-motivation. The Principal, faculty, staff and students all worked in vision with one aim of trying to prove their excellence and competitive edge over others. As an undergraduate college, catering to a large student population through a multi-faculty provision, the college has to a very large extent achieved the objectives and goals of development academically, physically and culturally. It had the tradition of an excellent undergraduate institution of higher learning.
By starting PG classes in the facilities of Science, Arts, Social Sciences, Commerce and management and computer sciences and Information Technology, by offering 10 PG courses and 12 PG Diploma courses in the college has taken a quantum jump during the last 7 to 8 years. Even though in some of the courses in 2002-2003, the college has sent just the first batch of final year students, as in English, the pains taken both by teachers and students have led to some University positions.
Departments like Punjabi, History and English show signs of great research potential. Since the PG department has been established recently, the overall research tradition has yet to take shape, yet there is lots of potential.
COMMENDATIONS AND SUGGESTIONS
The Peer Team after going through in detail the Self-Study Report and after visiting the various Departments and physical facilities of College developed during a short span appreciates the efforts of the Management, Principal, teaching and non-teaching staff in achieving the goals set up at the time of the establishment of the College. The College shows reassuring evidence of planned development. It is commendable that most of the courses are career oriented on a self-finance basis. However sustained efforts are needed to bring this College at the national level. We hope, however, that other basic disciplines in Science subjects, literature and Social Sciences will also be established for wider range of pursuits so that the college can take place as a full-fledged intellectual centre. Also care should be taken to ensure that application based programmes, however, valuable in themselves, are sufficiently based in the fundamental principles of the discipline.
In short, the College shows considerable potentials of growth and desire to achieve such growth, apart from strengthening the existing infrastructure for maintaining the desired quality in each discipline. The recommendations and suggestions given below are intended in bringing about further improvement in achieving the goals of the Management.

Students not a bargained commodity, says High CourtJune 24, 2009
The Punjab and Haryana High Court today made it clear that the students cannot be used as 'a bargaining commodity', while directing Guru Nanak Dev University against withholding the result of Jalandhar-based Lyallpur Khalsa College students.
The varsity was allegedly demanding fine for 'excess admission', on the 'threat' of withholding the results'. As many as 300 B.Com first year students are now expected to benefit from the orders of Justice SD Anand.
In its petition filed through counsel Sameer Sachdeva, the college had earlier sought directions for quashing the varsity's action in 'unilaterally demanding fine and payment of the dues/fees on account of alleged excess admission of students for academic year 2006-07 by way of arm twisting methods'.
The petitioner had contended it was not granted proper opportunity of hearing, even though the college was not at fault, and was willing to justify the entire admissions 'duly approved by the express/implied action of the university, for which the varsity has duly issued the registration cards and examination roll numbers'.
Taking up the matter, Justice Anand asserted: 'The impugned penalty has been imposed by the university upon the college for excess admission/intake. Besides, the university has required the college to pay up fee, etc., obtained from the excess students. The announced threat is that the result of the affected students shall be withheld otherwise.
Counsel for the petitioner, Sameer Sachdeva, states that the petitioner shall furnish bank guarantee to the extent of Rs 2 lakh from today.
Issuing notice of motion for July 8, along with notice regarding stay, Justice Anand asserted: 'In case of an administrative feuding, there is no reason why the interest of the students should suffer. It could be ideal if the university and the college could iron out their administrative creases without holding the students to virtual ransom.
'It is an unenviable state of affairs that the college has had to apply for the restraint of the university from withholding the result. The students cannot be allowed to be used as a bargaining commodity in the process of averred feuding. 'In the meantime, the respondents shall not withhold the result of the students under reference,' the court said.
