NAAC report of DAV College

Section 1: Introduction:
The D.A.V. College Bathinda is one among about 70 Colleges and professional institutions established by the Arya Samaj Trust, DAV College Management Committee, with its HQ at Delhi. This college is affiliated to the Punjabi University, Patiala. It is situated in urban area, which is relatively a backward area of Punjab. The main objective of establishing this college was to provide the facility of higher education among the educationally backward population of district Bathinda. It was then in July 1969 this college was established by the DAV College Management, with an additional objective of preserving and transmitting Vaidic cultural heritage to the posterity. The college is situated in a campus of about 23 acres of land, with a well maintained landscape and requisite infra-structure.

The College submitted its Self-Study Report to NAAC in Dec. 2003 and requested for its validation by the expert peers team. The peer team has
Prof. U.S. Chaudhari, former Vice Chancellor of Devi Ahilya Vishwavidyalaya, Indore, as its Chairperson, Dr. Ms. Chanchal Sharma, former Principal of M.A.M. College Jammu, as its member and Prof. B.D. Joshi, Head Department of Zoology & Environmental Sciences and Dean, Faculty of Life Sciences of Gurukula Kangri Vishwavidyalaya as the Member Co-ordinator. The team visited the College from August 20 & 21, 2004.

In the academic session of 2004-05 the college had an enrollment of 2231 students. It comprises 1927 in Undergraduate, 06 in Post Graduate, 60 in Diploma-Certificate courses. There are 304 students-comprises UG & PG courses under Self-Finance programme. The college has 48 qualified permanent teachers, and 40 temporary teachers of various disciplines. There are 43 non-teaching employees. The College conducts six (06) educational programs: (UG-04, PG-01 and Diploma- 01) in 14 departments / subjects. It has a spacious central library, a computer center along with sports facilities, canteen and a grievance redressal cell within its campus.

The peer team carefully perused and analyzed the self-study report submitted by the institution. During institutional visit, the team went through all the relevant documents, visited the departments and inspected various facilities enlisted in the report and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and extension facilities of the institution were thoroughly visited.

The peer team also interacted at length with the Management Committee, the Principal, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, parents and alumni of the institution. Based on the above exercise, and keeping in mind the criteria prescribed by the NAAC, the peer team has made the value judgment. Assessment of the institution under various criteria, commendable features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are presented as under.

Section 2 : Criterion-wise Analysis :
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects :
The college being affiliated to the Punjabi University, Patiala, is fully dependent for the curricular programmes on the Board of studies and Academic council decisions of the parent university. The implementation part is further under the control of the DAV Managing Committee, Delhi. The College offers education in four major faculties of Science, Arts, Commerce & Computer. At UG level College has B.A., B.Com, B.Sc. Med. and Non Med. groups of courses along with Computer application programmes like B.M.I.T. and B.C.A. The P.G. course is offered for M.C.A. Degree only. A P.G. Diploma Course in computer application is also offered by the College. The courses are reviewed and updated from time to time in accordance to the decisions made at parent University level.

Most of these programs in basic subjects are of conventional type, but in the changing scenario of education, some employment-oriented / better to say self employment oriented courses have been introduced, during last three years. This is a sign of marching with time and making available options and opportunities to students. The College offers education in three major faculties of Science, Arts and Commerce.

The college is represented in various academic bodies of the university by its senior faculty members according to seniority. This provides an opportunity to the college to place and push forward its own suggestions and requirements to the university. Besides opportunity of interaction with university peers in the subjects is also to make possible. The teachers who are members of the respective Boards of Studies have a greater role and responsibility to contribute to act as a bridge between the college and the university.

There is a provision periodic inspection of all the activities of the college over a period of three years by the peer team of the parent University .The college has shown its active awareness in organizing various academic activities like quiz competitions, IT festival etc. at the inter collegiate level which offers opportunities of exposure to the students as well as to teachers in interacting with scholars from other organizations, to remain in touch with the recent developments and to validate their own performance to a great extent reflect the mission, goals and objectives of the institution. The college follows an annual system of examinations, in accordance with the policy and rules of the university.

Criterion II : Teaching-Learning and Evaluation :
Admission in the college are made on the basis of a mixed criteria of special entrance test and merit cum interviews, by and large depending on the nature and demands of the respective discipline. Admission to various courses follows the policy of reservation of the state and the central Govt. However, throughout the session, a criteria is followed to assess student’s performance through tutorials and
question-answer sessions in the class room, besides comprehensive class tests and in-house tests conducted in the months of September & December.

The teaching process is also assisted by holding extra classes for weaker students, and financial support in the form of scholarships provided to meritorious but financially handicapped students to advance their educational studies. Coaching facilities are made available to prepare students for national / state level competitions. The students achieving distinctions and place in University merit list are honoured, in presence of their parents in assembly, at the time of annual functions or on some special occasions .

Teachers follow the practice of submitting their progress report of the work assigned to them, in each term, to the Principal. They are also required to submit their annual ‘Self-Appraisal’ report to the management, through principal. The teaching schedule for the academic session is divided in three units and the syllabi is accordingly taught and evaluated. In-house tests are also organized to test students preparation for the financial examination.

Results of the tests are communicated to the students and their parents. This ensures regularity of the students in their classes as well as to appear in these in-house tests. Departmental and staff meetings are held to monitor and to implement the policy of the management and institutional programmes.

The teachers affectionately look after the academic performance progress of their students and solve their personal problems and difficulties. Regular meetings with the parents / guardians are held from time to time, to build a healthy interpersonal relationship and mutual cooperation.

Last year, the college remained open for 285 working days, with 147 days of actual teaching. Apart from the regular class room teaching, seminars and extension lectures are organized by inviting eminent scholars / profession of different academic areas.

Out of a sanctioned 49 positions for teachers. There is a teaching faculty of 48 permanent teachers, 16 are females and 32 are males. This is a good ratio. Similarly among 40 temporary / part timers there are 25 females and 15 males. Among the permanent staff 4 teachers hold Ph.D. degree and 10 are having M. Phil. degree. It is inferred that the teaching load in the peak period is being shared by 88 teachers for a total number of 2231 students in the current session.

The teacher student ratio (inclusive of all category of teachers) for the peak teaching session of college is 1: 29. This is highly satisfactory. The teacher student ratio in relation to permanent positions of teachers is 1:53.4. In view of good results shown by the college it can be said that the teachers indeed do good and hard work. Similarly the ratio of substantive teachers to non–teaching staff 1:0.55. This indicates that the number of non-teachers staff is little on lower side. Therefore, efforts should be made to make an optimum utilization of non-teaching human resources.

The recruitment of faculty is carried out following the Govt. / UGC guide lines. Advertisement is published by the DAV College Managing Committee, Delhi. The applications are duly scrutinized for eligibility and interviews taken by a selection committee to make appointments. The criteria of NET qualification is religiously followed in the appointments on permanent positions.
For the unaided courses teachers are recruited purely on merit basis, as per above stated criteria. The college also has the freedom to appoint ad-hoc / temporary teachers, as per requirements, with the Principal.

The college encourages teachers to avail the faculty improvement programmes sponsored by UGC through the ASC’s available in the region. In the past two academic sessions 07 teachers participated in the Orientation or Refreshers courses.

The assessment of teachers is encouraged following the self appraisal proforma, besides taking students as part of system and getting feed back from them through a questionnaire.

Cooperation of teachers, according to their abilities and inclination is sought by involving them in the functioning of the college through various committees like: admission committee, Library advisory committee, Sports committee, NSS committee etc. This gives ample opportunity to faculty members in sharpening their teaching, administrative as well as extra curricular activities, in general.

Criterion III : Research, Consultancy and Extension:
The college has not been recognized for Ph.D. research program, because it has a limited umber of P.G. courses. Very few teachers are found involved in research either for Ph.D. / M.Phil. or for one’s own development. However, there is provision of leave, in the rules, for any teacher desirous of doing Ph.D. / M.Phil.

The extension activities, the third dimension of University education, is well taken care by the college, through the youth organizations in association with local NGOs and similar GOs, to serve the neighbouring community and society. Students and teachers are encouraged to participate and promote population education programs, AID’S awareness, Medical camp, Community development, and environmental awareness etc. There is scope for further extending and utilizing student’s potential for extension activities and out-reach programs especially in the field of empowerment of women and weaker sections of the society. Mostly the extension services are organized through NCC & NSS.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources :
The college has ample space spread over 23 acres, where- in it plans to extend its existing building for future courses. College has put a teacher as an Estate Officer, besides a building committee to look after the college property & related activities. This is further assisted by a landscape committee headed by the Head of the Botany Department, who has been responsible to plant around 500 plants.

College consists of an advisory committee for library, which has a book bank and29500 books. It subscribes about 50 periodicals. Library remains open 6 days a week during 9.00am to 4.00pm. During last two years books / journals worth
Rs. 63,588.00 were added in the library.

Computer facility is present in the computer department and the accounts department. College has attachment of a local Doctor for daily routine medical help to the students and staff, with indoor facilities for emergency. The physical infrastructural facilities include play grounds for volleyball, Kabbadi & Cricket. Similarly college has a multi-purpose indoor hall got constructed from the joint funds from Govt. India, Min. of Sports & Youth Services sharing Rs. 20 lakhs and a from donation of Rs.11 lakh , from a N R I., besides some funds from state Govt. too, with a total cost of Rs. 70 lakh.. It has a seating capacity of 1000. This Hall has two badminton courts, table tennis court and space for Chess etc. The department is well looked after by an independent Head.

College has a central lawn, with a stage used as an open air theater, for a variety of grand functions.

This college has many achievements in the field of sports, athletic etc.. Last year only 04 girls got Ist position in power lifting at state level event,04 girls got Ist position in power lifting at National level and at the top 04 students won gold medals for India at the International meets. One of its students was a member of National team of Kabbaddi wining Gold Medal at Asian Games in Bussan

The college was able to raise Rs.59,07,900.00 from donations, self financing and fund raising devices. This is indeed a great achievement . This fully reflects the zeal of the college management, its staff and the potentials of the resource generation, even at relatively a small place like Bathinda. This also reflects the future desirability of more of the self financing courses, for the area. College has a well established computer department, established since 1998 and has 75 computers, with server, internet, scanner facilities. This meet out all requirements of computer related works of the campus.

College also provides a separate common room for female students, with all basic civic facilities, including a canteen counter. College also has well maintained staff room.

A few extension works are in progress, in the campus. These include 3-4 new class rooms, a separate reading hall in the library, a bank counter and canteen blocks separately.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression :
The college has been able to consistently maintain good exam results with some merit positions in the University examinations. The drop out rate is very low
( around 10.45%). Though no proper information is available in the records, there is a general observation that 60-70% students are making progression from UG to PG level. Financial aid is provided to the needy students in the form of various scholarships, by the college itself from its own resources as well as by disbursing various Govt. sponsored scholarships and benefits. During last years 06 & 06 and
07 & 04 students got the merit scholarship and National Scholarship, respectively.

The students represent the university at the inter-collegiate, national and inter-university and inter-zonal events. In 2002 College itself organized the interzonal sports, athletic and cultural competitions in its campus.

At the inter zonal Youth festival in 2002-03, eight students won gold medals and six silver medals. One student got Gold & Silver Medal in Tabla Vaadan, at inter university & National level. Similarly, a number of students (6-8) won Gold / Silver medals in fine arts, folk dances / music programs / debates etc. in Inter zonal University events. College Kabaddi team has won championship for six consecutive years. Its D.P.E. has been given an award by the State Governor for being the best Coach in Kabaddi. Students who excel in sports and games and cultural events are given preference in admission and they are also given concessions, free books, library facilities and free breakfast & luncheon during the days of practice and matches. Financial assistance and cash awards are also made available through sponsorships.

A ‘Placement Cell’ under the charge of a senior teacher has been created last year. It has started career counseling & guidance programmes. This is a good futuristic approach to career planning and to general guidance for quality-living.

The alumni association has also been started only last year. Though no previous record is maintained of its very successful alumni but there are around a dozen of its alumni, who hold high positions in the State & Central Govts. administrative services like, IG Punjab Police, DIG Police Investigation, IAS, IRAS, Ex-chairman Railway Service Recruitment Bd. etc. Similarly each year many students qualify in the PMT & engineering examinations. College organizes talent promoting competitions and organize annual prize distribution ceremonies to honour and reward students for the achievements in presence of their guardians & parents.

A Group Insurance Scheme for students is in currency, which is meant to give some relief to the bereaved family of the student on account of accidental untimely death. Under this scheme families of two students were given Rs. 10,000/- each, during the past years.

Criterion : VI : Organization and Management:
The DAV college Bathinda follows the Punjabi University, Patiala’s annual academic calendar, and like all other DAV colleges is managed by the DAV Board of management Delhi, for major policy & planning decisions. Though at local level Principal assisted by its advisory committee is empowered to make all the important decisions related to teaching and local administration as well as activities related to the student and employees welfare. Heads of the respective departments monitor the routine functioning’s of their departments. Staff members are divided into small committees and put in charge of various responsibilities pertaining to the day to day functioning of the institution. The College Prospectus gives all informations in detail and serves as a good guide to the students and their guardians.

There is a bursar who looks after the accounts, a Registrar for administrative affairs, Dean of Examinations, for that purpose under the over all control of the Principal. The academic council of the college helps in the academic affairs. There are teacher I/C to monitor the functioning of various categories of the non-teaching workings. For the non teaching staff there is provision of personal final, maintained with regular progression. College has a purchase committee represented by two teachers. All the major purchases are made through it, by calling quotations / tenders and processed as per standard procedure.

The staff council meetings are held as per requirements and are very helpful sorting out problems of the teaching community. Students problems are sorted out at various levels say Heads, Deans, councilors of the placement cells- created recently and a grievance redressal committee headed by the Principal himself . Loans to college employees from CPF funds are given as per existing rules besides college helps to obtain loans from the banks for various purposes. The Group Insurance scheme for employees is also in practice.

Criterion VII : Healthy Practices:
Following our pursuance of the SSR and visit to various departments and facilities of the DAV college Bathinda ,the peer team has identified some healthy practices in the campus, which are helpful in enhancing the academic ambience of the institution. They are as follows :
*As a matter of facts, it is basically being an Under Graduate College is poised to develop in to a very active center of higher education. It is evident by its opening four self-financing courses during the last three yrs. under regular time schedule, is a step in positive direction, to march with the advancing times and requirements of the youths around.

*The activities with in the campus are monitored at the three tier level, viz. the department committees under HODs, at college level by the Principal and an Academic Council.

Section 3: Overall Analysis:
The DAV College Bathinda by and large, still remains an Under Graduate College. It was established in 1969 in a relatively a backward Malwa region of Punjab to provide for higher education facilities to the youth of the region. The college was started from a scratch within the tents and small sheds constructed in the premises of the Mahatma Hansraj Senior Secondary School. By its consistently good performance of the students in some areas, it is known as the nursery of Medical, Engineering, sports and game’s talents in this part of Punjab. The team appreciate the motto of the college ‘Grow Rich Without Making Society Poor’. This will go a long way in developing a sustainable system within the campus.

The college is imparting education in computer applications through the new courses in PGDCA, B.C.A. and M.C.A. This demonstrates that the colleges is moving and marching with the times inspite of being in a backward area, its self-financing courses have gained popularity and status and they have become a good means of generating funds for the college.
Having gone through the ‘Self-Study Report’ and completing its comprehensive visit to various academic and physical facilities and sport systems, the peer team is pleased to note that the college is progressing well according to its mission and goals.

The college enjoys a good reputation in the city and the adjoining area and has earned confidence of the educated people, on account of its emphasis on quality education and for its insistence on discipline in the younger generation, besides inculcating a sense of values and pride in its Vaidic heritage and Indian tradition.
The peer team is much impressed by the outstanding performance and achievements of the students, specially in the field of sports and games. In view of this fact, the peer team would like to commend the efforts of the institution for the following activities:

*Publication of a good College magazine entitled as ‘SANDEEP’.

*Being able to raise good amount of funds through public operations.

*Being able to win the confidence of the Central Management Committee and reverence of the civil society for displaying consistently good academic performance.

*Gold and Silver Medals have been won in the sports, games and cultural events held at State, National and International level. Its Kabaddi team is one of the best in the state, which has continuously won Medals of top first position nine times during last ten years.

Suggestions / Recommendations:
Having made a comprehensive assessment of the college and prepared the report, the peer team would like to make the following recommendations for the overall improvement and toning up of the college :

*At present the college has Master’s Course only in one subject. Looking to the needs of the youth, more post graduate courses in Arts, Social Science and Science be started. This will help in promoting research activity in the institution.

*The teachers of the college need to be made research conscious and efforts be made to promote research-culture.

*The college may explore the possibility of introducing few more vocational courses with limited seats, to provide opportunities for self employment to the youth. For this purpose UGC’s guidelines be studied and necessary assistance may be sought.

*Similarly the college has ample scope to start a number of allied courses specifically for female students, in the areas of home making, arts & crafts, beauty and health parlour, interior decoration, fashion designing, nursing etc. At a small scale self-financed programmes within affordable fee will go a long way in providing opportunities to the local female youth population and in generating funds. Some of these courses can be started in the afternoon sessions, when the peak working hours of the college are over. After surveying the immediate and future needs of the students a few skill-oriented certificate courses may also be introduced.

*Among the new courses Horticulture, Seed Technology, Environmental Science, Psychology, Life Science (Zoology, Botany), B. Pharma,
Bio-technology and Bio-informatics may be considered for their introduction.

*Access to computers and student support services (like placement cell) need to be further strengthened. The counseling and guidance cell is also expected to evolve suitable strategies for career planning and general guidance. Placement activity and counseling can be combined together.

*The college must strive to involve itself in the UGC sponsored schemes like COSIP / COSIST etc.

*The teachers may be motivated to introduce self-appraisal mechanism for their own assessment and rating. If they like peer-rating can also be employed.

*In view of increased work load at various levels, an increase in the substantive positions of the teaching faculty & technical non-teaching staff is also required.

*The hostel facility must be created for both the sexes inclusive of the reading room facilities there in.

*Efforts be made to develop a ‘Learning Resource Centre’ in the college.

*In view of the fact that college is administered under the D.A.V. Trust of Education, it is strongly expected that college would soon start course in Sanskrit subject at UG level.

*Library Staff may be trained in house for modern classification system. More text-books of recent additions in all subjects be added to the library.

*Role of the Alumni Association in various development projects and programmes of the college needs to be encouraged.

*A course in spoken English can be started. If possible a language laboratory may be developed. P.G. course in Information Technology, as envisaged by the college, be started as early as possible.

*The scheme of ‘Earn While You Learn’ may be introduced for the benefit of relatively financially handicapped students, at various levels.

*Yoga, Judo, Archery and Value Education classes may also be started. Similarly formal diagnostic and remedial classes may be started for educationally disadvantaged and underachieving students.

*Use of Audio Visual Aids be promoted in the classroom teaching and learning by establishing on AV Centre in the college.

*Permanent Health Centre may be opened in the college for providing health services to the students.

*Gymnasium and sports facility be made available to the female students by restructuring the time schedule fixed for boys.

ACKNOWLDDGEMENT : The peer team extends its sincere thanks to the students, alumni, teaching and non-teaching staff, Principal, Management and parents of the students for their active support and co-operation for welcoming the Peer Team of NAACs and making its working smooth and stay comfortable. We further wish good luck to the college authorities in their future ventures for growth and development of the college.

MG DAV College Bathinda ……PETITIONER
State of Punjab and others ……RESPONDENTS


Mr. Aman Chaudhary, Advocate for the petitioner.
Mr. Vijay Kumar Chaudhary, Asstt.A.G.Punjab for respondents.

Learned counsel for the petitioner states that in similar situations and cases of similarly placed persons, the following directions have been given:-

Accordingly, the instant petition is disposed of with the directions that the petitioner shall present itself before the respondent no.3 on any working day between 14.2.2011 to 17.2.2011 and comply with all the formalities. The petitioner shall render all the relevant material to the respondents who upon evaluation of the same shall determine the amount due and release the same to the petitioner within a period of four weeks thereafter.

After hearing learned counsel for the parties and noticing the
fact that the controversy is similar to what was raised in the aforesaid similar petition, I deem it appropriate to dispose of the writ petition in terms of the aforesaid order.




Civil Writ Petition No.7825 of 2009

Date of Decision: May 21, 2009

M.G. DAV College, Dayanand Nagar, Bathinda .....PETITIONER(S)
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)


Mr. Aman Chaudhary, Advocate, for the petitioner.

The prayer made in this civil writ petition filed under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India is for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to comply with the directions given by Division Bench of this Court while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.14340
of 2006 titled Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 18.12.2007.

It has been brought out that the petitioner is helping the State to achieve its welfare policies. The State of Punjab implemented a scheme known as `95% Deficit Grant in Aid Scheme for granting financial assistance to non government aided colleges. The State Government took a conscious decision to provide financial assistance to private aided colleges to enable these colleges to pay the scales recommended by the UGC so as to maintain minimum standards in higher education on
the basis of sanctioned strength of teaching and non teaching employees. Because the respondents are not releasing the admissible grant in aid, the petitioner is unable to pay the teaching and non
teaching staff which seriously hampers the working of the Institution.

Issue notice of motion.
Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, on the asking of the Court, accepts notice. Copy of the petition has been handed over.

Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that grant in aid is required to be released in terms of the judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.

I have considered the issue. The Division Bench in the case of Arya College, Ludhiana (supra),
issued directions in the following terms:-

Accordingly, we direct the State to meet its liability as per its declared scheme within three months from today.

The State will be at liberty to rely upon the record already available or to have access to such other record of the petitioner-college as, may be necessary, but on this account, the State will not avoid its liability. We make it clear that Secretary, Higher Education, Punjab will be held
personally liable in case of default in meeting the liability.

This Court has considered the very issue while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009
titled BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 21.3.2009 and Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 24.4.2008, in which also the respondent-State has been directed to release the grant in aid.

In Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007 titled `The Managing Committee, Guru Gobind Singh College, Saghera, Barnala, District Sangrur vs. State of Punjab and Another decided on 19.2.2008, similar view has been taken and direction was issued to the respondents to release grant in aid.

Special Leave Petition was filed by the State of Punjab, the same being SLP No.15798 of 2008 which was dismissed on 8.12.2008.

Considering the directions issued by this Court in various cases as noticed above, and in the facts and circumstances of this case, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner.

So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid due is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representation to the respondents.

Petition is allowed in the above terms.
