Sh. Kuldip Singh, Associate Professor on behalf of Respondent.

The Complainant filed a complaint on 06.08.2009 that his original application dated 13.7.2009 has not been attended to.

The information sought by him is regarding “Has your office complied with the mandatory requirements of Section 4 (text closed) of The Right to Information Act 2005? If yes, please furnish the details, if no then please, furnish the reasons.”

The Respondent stated that vide their Memo No.1234, dated 31.7.2009 the Complainant has been apprised of all the difficulties being faced by the Respondent to carry out the computerization work. He asserted that huge funds and man-power is required, whereas Respondent College has not been allotted the adequate funds, as soon as the funds are provided by the Government all the record will be computerized as per provisions contained in Section 4 of RTI Act. However, the Respondent assured that if the Complainant requires any specific record maintained by the College he should specify it and it will be provided to him.

CM No.18853-CII of 2009
Application is allowed subject to all just exceptions.

COCP No.1465 of 2009
The grievance of the petitioner in this case is that despite the directions passed by this Court in CWP No.3824 of 2005, respondents No.1 and 2 have replaced the petitioner by another part-time lecturer namely, Gurvinder Kaur daughter of Sukhwinder Singh.

Vide order dated 13.8.2009, learned counsel for the petitioner had sought short adjournment to file an additional affidavit in support of his argument.

An additional affidavit dated 13.8.2009 has been filed by the petitioner wherein the petitioner has specifically stated that the new candidate i.e. Gurvinder Kaur had worked in this College during the session 2007-2008 only and during this period, the petitioner was also working. Since, admittedly, the new candidate was working with the Government College of Women, Ludhiana, it cannot be stated that the petitioner has been replaced by a new candidate and directions passed by this Court in CWP No.3824 of 2005 have been contravened.

Accordingly, I find no merit in this petition.

Dismissed.

The petitioner shall be at liberty to seek any other appropriate remedy available to her in accordance with law.

Mahesh Grover,J.
This petition under Section 11 of the Contempt of Courts Act,1971 (for short, `the Act') has been preferred by the petitioners for initiating contempt proceedings against the respondents for willful disobedience of order dated 5.8.2008 passed in C.W.P. No.15413 of 2007 for forcibly taking back the amount paid to them after eight months.

The petitioners have averred that the above said writ petition was filed by them along with five others with a prayer that the respondents therein be directed to give them the benefit of their ad hoc service while considering the grant of senior scale/ selection grade as per letter dated 25.12.1998 issued by the University Grant Commission. It was further averred that the benefit in accordance with letter dated 25.12.1998 had already been given to the similarly situated employees. At the relevant time, the petitioners were working as Lecturers in Government College for Women, Ludhiana.

The said writ petition came up for hearing before a Division Bench along with two other writ petitions on 5.8.2008 and after considering the matter, the respondents therein were directed to give the benefit as
claimed by the petitioners within seven days. Pursuant to the order dated 5.8.2008, the requisite relief was granted to the petitioners as was informed by the State Counsel on 22.8.2008 on which the date, that petition was disposed of as having become infructuous.

In the instant petition, it has been alleged that on 1.5.2009, the petitioners received the orders (collectively marked as Annexure P2) from the Director of Public Instructions (Colleges), Punjab (respondent no.2) informing them that their case for award of senior/ selection grade by counting ad hoc service as per letter dated 25.12.1998 has been rejected. It has further been alleged that Principal, Government College for Women,Ludhiana (respondent no.3) has issued memos dated 4.5.2009 to them and is pressuring to pay by 8.5.2009 not only Rs.1,46,724/- and Rs.1,31,167/- respectively paid to them pursuant to the orders of the Court, but also asking them to pay Rs.62690/- and Rs.56215/- which amounts are said to be T.D.S. The petitioners have averred that by issuing letters dated 1.5.2009 and 4.5.2009, respondent nos. 2 and 3 have made them liable for contempt of the Court and, therefore, they should be proceeded against accordingly.

I have heard the learned counsel for the petitioners and have perused the paper-book.

Concededly, the petitioners were granted the requisite benefit pursuant to order dated 5.8.2008 passed in the writ petition filed by them.

A perusal of Annexure P2 reveals that the matter with regard to grant of benefit of senior/selection grade to those Lecturers who had served on ad hoc basis before their joining on regular basis, by giving the benefit of that period, came up for consideration before respondent no.2 and on examination of the service books of the petitioners, it transpired that the whole ad hoc service of petitioner no.1 was not continuous and she had only worked for seven months and eighteen days, whereas the period of
continuous ad hoc service of petitioner no.2 was only seven days. It is evident that the circular on the basis of which prayer for grant of benefit was made contemplated that the benefit can be granted only to those who had rendered one year ad hoc service without break prior to the regular appointment. It is, in these circumstances, that the orders have been passed by respondent no.2.

Without venturing upon the question as to whether the said orders are justified or not, it will be suffice to say that a fresh cause of action has accrued to the petitioners after passing of those orders and if they feel aggrieved, then they may avail themselves of the appropriate remedy under the law, but under no circumstance, it can be said that there is any violation of this Court's order so as to warrant initiation of proceedings against the respondents under the Act.

On the basis of the above discussion, it is held that there is no merit in this petition and the same is dismissed.

A peer team was constituted by the NAAC to visit the institution and validate the self-study report.

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis

Criterion I: Curricular Aspects

As an affiliated college of the Punjab University Chandigarh, Khalsa College for Women follows the syllabi prescribed by the University for Humanities, Sciences and Commerce faculties both at the under-graduate and post-graduate levels including the Self-finance and Honours courses.

The college offers 19 programmes: 06 UG programmes, 07 PG programmes, 01 PG Diploma and 05 Honours courses at UG level including Self Financing Courses. It follows mainly annual system of academic work except in M.Com. course where bi-semester system is followed. Along with conventional programmes, career-oriented Programme options like BBA, BCA, M.Sc.(IT) and three vocational subjects are also available to students in the college.

In the college, BCA and Vocational courses were introduced in 1994, BBA in 1998, PGDCA in 2000, M.Com. in 2001and M.Sc. (IT) in 2002 and M.A. (English) in 2004.

The College has adopted ‘learner-centric methods’ to supplement the routine lecture programme in order to fulfill its Mission & Goals.
In order to provide summer training and project work to the students of job oriented courses, the college has developed liaison with industry located in and around Ludhiana.

The Peer Team suggests that a few more career-oriented courses or programme options can be thrown open to the students. Being a premier girls’ college of the area, introducing Post Graduation in Home Science & Biotechnology like subjects may also be considered

The college teachers, who are members of the respective Boards of Studies, play a vital role in updating the syllabi and making them more relevant to the society and industry. A good number of students in various courses regularly obtain Ranks/Positions in the University examinations.

Annual academic audit is done by the University and multi-disciplinary approach is followed by different departments of the college.

Criterion II: Teaching-learning and Evaluation

Computer Application where special entrance tests are conducted by the college.

The teachers take the help of audio visual aids to supplement their conventional Black Board Teaching. Similarly, extension lectures, tutorials, field trips, Quiz and Paper reading Competitions, Seminars and Group Discussions are organized to expose the students to the latest developments in various branches of knowledge.
