The half-yearly exams are scheduled to start from Dec 1, which the students feel is too early.

The students shouted slogans in front of the office of college Principal Punit Bedi. The hartal started at 10.30am and continued till 1pm. The students demanded that the exams be held from Jan 1 rather than Dec 1 as the syllabus was not completed. The college administration tried to persuade the students to take the papers as per the schedule as it was practically difficult to cancel the exams. Though rescheduling it could be an option, said sources.The college administration also assured the students that they won t be asked questions in the exam on topics that haven t been touched.However, the students demanded that the exams be held only after completion of the syllabus.

Notices to principals of DAV College, MCM DAV

Chandigarh, February 11 The principals of MCM DAV College, Sector 36 and DAV College, Sector 10 have been served notices for their failure to provide information under the Right to Information Act, 2005. The notices have been issued by CPIO of the Office of Director, Higher Education (Colleges). The applicants, Professor R P Singh, Arun Kumar and Avanindra Chopra, had sought information about the annual fee structure, contributory provident fund and expenditure incurred on advertisements by colleges. But the applicants claimed they did not get the requisite information. Professor Anil Sarwal, president of DAV College Teachers’ Union, said the office of DHE had issued an advisory to the principal of DAV College, S Marriya, to abide by the provisions of the RTI Act, 2005. Principals of all the seven aided colleges were made CPIOs of their respective colleges. The two DAV colleges, however, ignored these letters and denied information.
Principal of MCM DAV College, Dr Puneet Bedi, said the letter has been forwarded to the DAV management.

Chandigarh girls say sorry to teachers

Chandigarh: On Teacher s Day students of MCM DAV College in Chandigarh decided to offer apologies to their teachers as a unique gift.

A week ago, the same students had raised their voices in protest demonstrating in the college premises against their professors, asking for one of the professors to apologize for slapping a student for using a cell phone in college premises.

However on Teacher s Day students approached their mentors, offered them cards and flowers and asked for forgiveness.


We have committed a big mistake and want to apologies to our teachers, said Ritika Gautam a student of the MCM DAV College.

However, the teachers weren t too keen on accepting the token of apology just yet.

We wanted to apologise but the teachers said no and refused to accept our cards and gifts, said Sania a student of the MCM DAV College.

Nevertheless, students attempt to bridge the divide, was appreciated by the College Principal.

My students have realised their fault and they have decided to celebrate this day as an apology day, Principal, Puneet Bedi of MCM DAV College said on Tuesday.

Over the past few days the teacher student relationship has been tarnished in many parts of the country, but at the MCM DAV the students made a conscious effort to amend this even if the teachers weren t too keen on accepting their apologies.


MCM DAV violates RTI Act

Chandigarh: MCM DAV College, Sector 36, has once again refused information under the Right to Information Act (RTI) 2005. In identical letters written on October 24, 2007, to professors Ghanshyam Das, K.S. Chopra, A.L. Singla, Arun Kumar Aggarwal and Avanindra Chopra of DAV College, Sector 10, the college initially accepts that it is an aided college, but denies that it is a public authority as defined in the RTI Act.

The college had even earlier refused information despite clear instructions issued by the UGC, Panjab University and the director of higher education, Chandigarh.

In the present case, information had been sought on issues of contributory provident fund, leave encashment, fee structure and expenditure on advertisements issued by the college.

But the management of the college, in an explanation attached to the reply, claims that the college is a part of public schools run by the DAV College Trust and Management Society and does not receive any aid either from the state government or the central government. Consequently, we are not bound to furnish the information as asked for, it adds. The college blatantly ignores the fact that since 1977, it has been under the 95 per cent grant-in-aid scheme of the UT administration.

As per directions of the UGC, All universities and colleges, controlled or substantially financed directly or indirectly by the government, shall come within the meaning of a public authority under this Act.


It further instructs all universities and colleges to take necessary steps for the implementation of various provisions, including proactive disclosure of certain kinds of information.

The PU, in a letter sent in November 2005, had directed the principals of all its affiliated colleges, receiving grants from any government/UGC to implement the RTI Act 2005.

But the MCM DAV College has created no mechanism for provision of information.

Even director of higher education Raji P. Srivastava, on September 10, 2007, had advised aided colleges getting 95 per cent grant-in-aid from the Chandigarh administration to comply with the provisions of the RTI Act as they were “controlled and substantially financed by the government.” The present applications, seeking information, were made after this advisory.

President of MCM DAV College Teachers’ Union Prof Uma Joshi said, The management of the college is flouting all rules, regulations and instructions issued by the UGC, PU vice-chancellor and director of higher education in many other cases as well.In fact, the management by violating all rules has given a fatal blow to the status and image of the two DAV colleges in the city and is inviting severe criticism and penalties from all quarters.

MCM row: Rival groups reach compromise, final report by Sep 29

The issue pertaining to a brawl between the two rival groups at the MCM College in which one student was injured, was settled on Monday as a compromise was made at the Sector 36 police station.

Priyanka, the victim, had earlier lodged a DDR against the girls from the college. Priyanka's parents, however, were not too convinced with the decision and met Director Higher Education Raji P Srivastava. Srivastava immediately summoned the college principal, Puneet Bedi, who was asked to explain her position and directed to take corrective action as soon as possible.

After giving a patient hearing to Priyanka, who wants the college to mark an inquiry into the matter, Srivastava demanded a complete report from the committee, formed to look into the matter latest by September 29.

A member from the Education department will also be included in the committee to review the entire issue.The college has also been directed to work in coordination to improve the relations among students.

Dr Puneet Bedi, principal of MCM DAV, however, said: A committee was formed the very next day after this brawl took place. We were to submit the report today but we received a report from the police saying that both the parties have entered into a compromise. So nothing was left to us. We will relook into the matter and try to do something.

The Education department, meanwhile, is also working with the police to beef up security outside the college premises so that such brawls can be avoided in the future.

The issue in the college has been going on for quite some time now after there was a fight between two students groups represented by Geeta and Hemani as presidential candidates during the elections.

The rivalry between the groups, however, could not be resolved as the Education department had decided to do away with the elections this year

History of the College

The year 1968, was a land-mark in the history of DAV Movement with regard to Women - Education when M.C.M. D.A.V. College for Women, Sector – 36, Chandigarh was founded in the sacred memory of Justice Mehr Chand Mahajan, a great legal luminary and an intellectual giant. This college, stands as a fit memorial to his lofty ideals and has carved out a definite place for itself during the last years in every field of Education, Sports, Cultural Activities & Technology. It was memorable day on 31st May, 1968, when its Foundation - Stone was laid by Hon’ble V.V. Giri, the Vice-President of India. That day Principal Mrs. S. Roy, Teachers and Students pledged their body, mind and soul to its bringing up as the finest example of Indian culture and heritage, keeping up with the traditions set by Swami Dayanand and Mahatma Hans Raj.

The moment you enter the gates of M.C.M. and catch your first glimpse of its red-bricked building, its flower-fringed paths and lanes, the Principal’s Office peeping out through an ivy-bedecked frame-work, its lovely garden-landscaping, the magnificent Ashoka and Palm trees skirting the green-lawns, you marvel at the exquisite taste of the people belonging to the institution. M.C.M., a not-so-big but definitely beautiful campus, (extended to the area of 16 acres with 3,000 Girls) is very picturesque indeed. And then the impeccable cleanliness and open atmosphere completely bowls you over. Move further and you are struck by the tranquility - an unobtrusive order and discipline that prevails in the campus even amidst crowds of giggling and jabbering girls threading their way to Class-Rooms, Hostel, Air-Conditioned Food Plaza, Cyber-Cafe or Gymnasium. The over-all effect is mystifying. Who could be the nimble-fingered-puppeteers managing such a well-orchestrated show

Mrs. S. Roy, the Founder Principal of MCM College started it as a new temple of Knowledge & promised a very friendly and healthy atmosphere most congenial to the development of all round personality of its students. Her aim was to make it a real GURUKUL with the spirit of mutual love and confidence between the teacher and the taught.

Her Successor, Mrs. S. Mahajan served with dedication to achieve Plato s Utopia and Excellence in shaping ideal human beings through education. For her, the life governed by ancient values of Truth - Goodness- Beauty was the sound basis of academic- knowledge. Her devotion was to achieve this target to justify MCM’s existence as an educational - institute. This college attained greater heights of success with discipline as a pre-condition under her leadership.

She was succeeded by Mrs. Usha Gupta, Officiating Principal who worked to raise the infrastructure, the academic standards and improved it in consonance with the contemporary standards.

Today, under the stewardship of Dr. Puneet Bedi, M.C.M. has become a dream destination for meritorious students. M.C.M. is preparing itself to face the challenges of the changing world on the sound footing of technology by imparting Quality-Education in Quality - Ambience with Quality Teaching-Aids aiming to achieve Quality Standards of Performances & Achievements in 21st Century. knitted with the teachings & values opening Maharish Dayanand.

And the layout of M.C.M. that’s another dream like feature. The two main college buildings - Arts Block and Science Block. Third, newly built Administrative Block amidst equally beautiful hedges, Hower - beds, Creepers and potted flowers. Learning and aesthetics blend to create an almost Shanti - Niketan atmosphere. In fact, the first thing that strikes a person as he enters the gates of M.C.M. is this wonderful blend of beauty and austerity, Serenity and Flawless loveliness, which lend to the college its own special brand of uniqueness - IT’S A COLLEGE WITH QUALITATIVE DIFFERENCE
