Sinking feeling in Gauhati Commerce CollegeLike every monsoon, students of Gauhati Commerce College (GCC are again suffering due to waterlogging caused by incessant rain on the campus. A heavy downpour on Sunday night submerged the GCC campus and students who went to the college to check their higher secondary examination results declared on Monday had to make an artificial bridge of wooden benches to avoid wading through water. The situation on the campus, however, improved slightly on Tuesday.
For last several years, students have protested against the authorities failure to address the issue. Last year, several students skipped classes and blocked the R G Baruah Road in front of the college to demand for better drainage infrastructure. Though the administration assured that the problem would be resolved at the earliest, it did nothing concrete.
On Monday afternoon, even GCC principal Ghanashyam Nath was busy supervising the work to drain out the rain water from the campus after Sunday nights rain water entered the classrooms. Despite appeal to all government departments and agencies concerned we are yet to see any action on the waterlogging problem. We are helpless, said Nath.
Construction in the backyard of the college has blocked water carrying drains leading to the problem of waterlogging. The classes are badly hit during rainy days. Nothing satisfactory has been done by the government to solve this problem. A leading educational institution of the state is under water and it is happening every year. Its a shameful situation, says Simanta Thakuria of All Guwahati Students Union.
Commerce college starts issuing BCom formsGUWAHATI: With the results of Class XII exam conducted by Assam Higher Secondary Education Council declared on Monday, the Gauhati Commerce College has started issuing admission forms for BCom courses on Tuesday.
With the colleges seven in Top Ten positions in commerce stream of Class XII board examination, the bar is expected to be raised higher this time, while following the admission process for 600 seats.
The premier commerce educational institution here is also gearing up for admission to Bachelor of Business Admission (BBA) programme. College authorities say the forms for BBA course will be issued from Wednesday.
Till now, it is expected that the college will resort to its usual conventional system of allocating seats to potential candidates. The college usually separates the students, who have applied for the much-coveted seats on the basis of educational boards like AHSEC, CBSE and other boards. The eligibility criteria for applying is generally fixed at 50 per cent and candidates, who have secured less than 45 per cent, cant apply.
We are planning to resort to the conventional system. We get around 85 to 90 per cent students from AHSEC and priority is given to students from this board. From other boards, we get around 5 to 10 per cent students. So, the cut-off is separate for different boards. Last year, the cut off marks for candidates from AHSEC in the general category was 385 (non -quota) while for those from CBSE and other boards was 453. This year, the pattern will be more or less the same with some slight changes, said GG Banik, a professor of Accountancy and convener of examination branch, Gauhati Commerce College.
The admission process for the Bachelor of Business Administration programme is all set to commence in the coming weeks for the 60 seats in the degree course. The programme was introduced in 2007 and it is the first college under Gauhati University to implement the course. Though the demand for BBA is less than BCom, the implementation of the course was aimed at those students who prefer to study outside the state. After submission of forms for the programme, candidates have to sit for a written test and viva.
There are no majors in BBA but the course was introduced because we see many students from Assam go outside to pursue the same course. This is a professional course, an entry level for MBA. Because of this, there is interest amongst students, said HK Das, the coordinator of BBA, Gauhati University.
Gauhati Commerce College turns 50, eyes more gloryUnion DoNER minister Pawan Singh Ghatowar on Saturday said the government should extend every possible help to the growth of Gauhati Commerce College while addressing a gathering of students and teachers on the occasion of the colleges golden jubilee celebrations.
The institute has been imparting quality education for 50 years. One should remember that the quality of education provided by this prestigious college has been appreciated not only in Assam, but also in the entire northeastern region. The government should also extend help to the college, said he.
Despite an overcast sky and fear of incessant rainfall, students and teachers of the college took out a colourful procession on the busy RG Baruah Road. Clad in traditional attire, representing various student communities of the college and impersonating historical and mythological characters, the students danced in glee to the tune of drum beats. The cultural procession was flagged off by popular Assamese actor Pranjal Saikia.
Former principal UC Sharma said, The college had its humble beginning in 1962 with 230 students. Today, its one of the most prestigious institutions imparting business education and has close to 3,000 students pursuing their higher studies here. It provides with every kind of commerce education, including BBA and MBA courses. Its a matter of pride for students to get a seat in the college. The college has to strive for international recognition even though it is recognized as one of the best in the map of commerce education in India.
