Hussaini Alam college cries for attentionEven as the 25th batch of students graduated from the Government Degree and P.G College for Women, Hussaini Alam, this decades old educational institution is faced with severe space crunch.
One of the oldest educational institutions in the old city, it was established in 1984 with the primary aim of fulfilling a need for higher educational institutions here. However, the college authorities are now cautious in introducing new courses keeping in view the space crunch.
Courses like B.Com, General, B.Com (Computer Applications), B.Sc (MGC), B.Sc (BZC) B.A (H.PSc.E) and B.A (H.PSc.ML) courses at undergraduate level are offered here. But plans to introduce more courses are kept in abeyance all these years for want of space.
The authorities admit 300 students every year and the intake is increased by a couple of hundred keeping in view the rush after taking clearance from the concerned authorities.
A new course B.Sc (BZC) was introduced this year after much thinking. However, college authorities fear lack of accommodation would make it difficult to run the classes. Three laboratories for botany, zoology and chemistry would be required in addition to a few classrooms, it is said.
College authorities have written to the government to accord permission to start three more courses keeping in view the ever increasing rush of applicants. Above 1000 students apply at this college every year but only half of them get admission.
At Post Graduation level only M. A. (Urdu) is being offered. But from this year onwards the college has reintroduced M.Com in English medium. The course was introduced in 2005 but stopped due to lack of demand, reasons a college official.
Dr. P. Renuka, principal, Government Degree and P.G college for Women Hussaini Alam says, We are hopeful of introducing three more courses this academic year increasing the intake by around 120 students. However, accommodation remains a constraint, she said.
The college which is in the heart of old city is the first choice of students. But, due to its limited courses and seats students are forced to travel to far off colleges in the city. Construction of additional floors would solve the problem, feel the college authorities.
