Media coverage of Government Post Graduate College, Karnal Haryana, Haryana

NAAC report of Government Post Graduate College

Government Post Graduate College, Karnal was established in the year 1976 by the State Government of Haryana, as a fully funded institution of higher education. It is one among about 50 Government Colleges in the State and the third oldest of all the Arts / Science / Commerce Colleges in the region engaged in providing higher education opportunities for boys and girls in Karnal and neighbouring districts of the State of Haryana. The College is affiliated to Kurukshetra University, Kurukshetra and has a campus of 19.6 acres in area, located in Karnal city. It has been recognized by the University Grants Commission(UGC) under 2f and 12B since 1976. The College is a multi faculty institution having three Faculties, viz; Science, Arts and Commerce and it offers programmes both at UG and PG levels. The College has, in all, 21 teaching Departments, with nine of them being in the Science Faculty (Mathematics, Physics, Chemistry, Zoology, Botany, Bio-Chemistry, Computer Science, Electronics and Home Science), eleven being in the Arts Faculty (English, Hindi, Economics, Sanskrit, Geography, Punjabi, History, Political Science, Defence Studies, Psychology, Music (Vocal) and one being in the Commerce Faculty (Commerce). The College offers ten programme options in all, viz., PG: 3 and UG: 7. The College has 76 faculty members on its rolls at present and it has a students' strength of over 2800 in its Departments.

The College is governed by the Directorate of Higher Education, Government of Haryana, similar to other Government Colleges in the State. Recently, on the advice of the State Government, the College has initiated a process of introspection of all its programmes and activities, to identify their strengths and weaknesses and also with a view to plan for the future growth of the institution. As a follow up of this, the Government Post-Graduate College, Karnal, has volunteered to be assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), an autonomous institution set up by the U.G.C. and submitted its Self Study Report in the prescribed format to NAAC In November 2002. A Peer Team comprising Prof. B.S. Sonde (Former Vice-Chancellor, Goa University) as Chairman and Prof. V.Krishna Kumar (Chairperson, Master's Programme in International Business, Gitam Institute of Foreign Trade, Visakhapatnam and Dr. V.I. Katchi (Reader, Department of Zoology and Vice-Principal, Bhavan's College, Mumbai) as members was constituted by NAAC for validation of the Self Study Report of the College and for the assessment of its performance. The work of the Peer Team was coordinated by Dr. K.N. Madhusudanan Pillai, Academic Consultant, NAAC.

The Pear Team visited the Government Post-Graduate College, Karnal during February 24-26, 2003. After carefully studying and analyzing the Self Study Report of the College, the Peer Team perused the various documents and papers made available to it by the College authorities during the visit. Then, the Peer Team visited the teaching Departments, common facilities and support service facilities of the College on its campus. The meetings and discussions with the Principal, Coordinator of the Steering Committee, Heads of teaching Departments, faculty members, non-teaching staff, students alumni and parents proved to be quite useful. The Peer Team was also pleased to meet with the Deputy Director, Department of Higher Education, Government of Haryana and know from her the various measures that the State Government has initiated to strengthen higher education in the State and in particular, their expectations from the Government Post-Graduate College, Karnal. Based on the various visits, discussions and interactions at the College, the Peer Team has made a comprehensive assessment of Government Post Graduate College, Karnal and all its activities / programmes under the seven criteria laid down for this purpose by NAAC and the same have been presented in this Report. The commendable features of the College and also the matters of concern have been brought out in this Report.

The College being a Government College no specific mission statement is made; the general goal of the College is to educate the students and to impart moral, cultural and value-based education. True to its goal, the College is offering the students a wide variety of subjects to choose from.

In addition to the traditional subjects some contemporary and interdisciplinary subjects like computer science, electronics and bio-chemistry are offered by the College. The curricular are designed by the Kurukshetra University. Some of the faculty have been members of academic bodies of the University and have contributed to review and redesign of the curricula. However, there may be a need for the College to obtain feedback on the programmes, not only from the academic peers and employers, but also from students to identify areas in which students need assistance for vertical mobility.

The College prepares an academic calendar covering all the activities of the College, viz, academic, co-curricular and extra-curricular. The syllabi are unitized and the Principal with the help of academic colleagues monitors the implementation of the syllabi. The teachers may however be encouraged to make a recorded and detailed teaching plan, which can be given to the students at the beginning of the academic session. The teaching plan in fact assumes an important dimension considering the fact that the appointments of faculty are transferable in nature The College, as per the norms set by Kurukshetra University, conducts three internal tests and communicates the results to the students and parents. The College has taken initiative to conduct remedial classes for the academically disadvantaged students. Advanced learners are encouraged to participate in seminars, quizzes, scientific exhibitions and various extra-curricular activities whereby the students are provided a platform to realize their potential and exhibit their talents. A number of audio-visual aids are available in the College and the teachers may be encouraged to use these from a common pool. Field trips and study tours are also a part of academic profile of the College. A commendable practice adopted by the College is formation of tutorial groups to enhance the interaction between students and teachers. During these interactions, counselling is offered to the students and discourses on moral values are imparted.

Many students secure ranks in examinations at the University level and the overall success rate of the College is promising. However the drop out rate of the College is high. The College needs to institute a formal procedure for obtaining feedback from the students to enhance the effectiveness of the teaching-learning process.

It is noteworthy that many faculty members from the College have obtained their Ph.D. and M.Phil. while in service. The College may however encourage the faculty members to take up minor / major research projects for which financial assistance is offered by agencies such as UGC, ICSSR etc. and publish papers based on the projects. Some of the faculty members have authored a few books and contributed papers and literary articles to books. Some of the faculty members have established links with national agencies. The College may however, encourage the faculty members to participate in the faculty development programmes and establish links with national / international agencies

The College is engaged in a few extension activities through its NCC and NSS units. The placement cell of the College is in its formative stage. The faculty has not done any consultancy work so far. The college may consider to encourage its faculty to go in for consultancy work.. The College enjoys excellent popularity in its region and therefore has an excellent opportunity to offer consultancy. The faculty members need to identify their potential to contribute to the development of local database as well as to provide suggestions and solutions to local agricultural, industrial and social aspects. This would increase connectivity with the surrounding rural communities and faculty may bring the knowledge to bear on classroom teaching enriching the students with practice.

The College has adequate physical infrastructure to house all the Lecture Halls, Academic Departments, Laboratories, Student and Faculty Rooms, other Centres such as NCC, NSS, Computer Centre, Library, Women Empowerment Cell, and Canteen. The NCC Unit is backed up by Firing Range, an arrangement made recently and it is going to be inaugurated very shortly. The College does not have Gymnasium. However, students from the College have access to the Public Sports Facility available nearby the College. Nevertheless, the College may consider to include it in its sports facility in future. The Public Works Department of the Government of Haryana takes care of the maintenance of the infrastructure. There is enough space to expand its infrastructure further.

The existing infrastructure is not only maintained well but also, optimally utilized. For two days in a week, its lecture halls and other facilities are allowed to be used by IGNOU-Study Centre to offer its programmes. The College receives sizable amount of money in return which is put in its Amalgamated Fund that is used among other purposes for financing poor students. The College has well stocked library, and it subscribes to a good number of Magazines and News Papers. However, the College may plan to increase the number of Journals. The Central Library has book bank facility and it is availed by a good number of students. The organization and management of the College Central Library however needs a professional touch. The College does not have a Central Computing Centre as yet and the Department of Computer Science has very few functional computers. The College may in future plan for a Central Computing Centre, and to provide all the Departments with at least one computer each. The College may also plan to provide at least one computer each to the Library, Office, and Principal. The College may consider to bring all the computers in the College under LAN and get connected with Internet facility. The Laboratories are well equipped.

Some Academic Departments maintain audio-visual cassettes and Departmental Libraries. The College may encourage all the Departments to set up audio-visual and book libraries to facilitate effective teaching learning. The College has two reprographic machines. One is exclusively used for the Office purpose. The other one is used to provide reprographic service to students and faculty. The College has taken initiative and requested for about Rs.82 Lakhs from the Government of Haryana to construct another block for Library, and the same has been sanctioned. The College has just started a Health Care Centre for the benefit of students and other employees on the campus. The College may strengthen this unit in the years to come and organize it in a more systematic way. The College has provided housing for the Principal, few Faculty and Staff Members. The College has the advantage of the arrangement made by the State of Haryana with Tata InfoTech Ltd to impart computer education to students, teachers, and non-teaching staff. The College may consider to extend the arrangement beyond working hours of the College to provide this facility to all the stakeholders.

The College provides for upward movement in studies for those who are interested in pursuing post graduation in Hindi, English, and Commerce. Many students in other disciplines have also joined other courses in higher studies such as MBA, CA, M.Sc, M.Phil, Ph.D. Earlier the College was offering M.Sc.(Geography). But this programme has now been dropped although the faculty and facilities are adequate to handle the programme. In fact, there seems to be ample demand for this course. The College may take up this matter with the Government of Haryana to start the programme again. Some students of this College are directly placed into employment. Students from Computer Science are getting placement even abroad after graduating from the College. The success rate of the College is good. However the dropout rate is also very high. The College may look into it. The Alumni Association is just started, and it needs to be activated. There is no College-Parent Association in place, and the College may consider to start the same and use it to get feedback from the parents and to provide feedback to them from the College. The College provides a number of scholarships to SC/ ST/BC students that are State sponsored. Besides, there are other scholarships for those in need. For instance, the College has Amalgamated Fund that is used to institute a number of scholarships for the students in need. Many students in need have availed of this facility and they have benefited. The College faculty takes special care of students by offering personal counseling. Many students from the College have cleared NET examination. The College sent a sizable number of NCC cadets to Republic Day Parade in Delhi in the past two years. The students of the College are actively participating in NSS activities such as blood-donation camp, literacy camp, afforestation camp, awareness programmes about polio vaccination etc. The College has good infrastructure for sports and other recreational/ leisure activities. Many students from the College have participated and won in sports and other cultural competitions at the University, State, and National Levels. As a part of the deal made by the State Government of Haryana, the College has a unit of Tata InfoTech Ltd. in its premises offering computer programmes to students and faculty at subsidized rates. The Certificates/Diplomas are issued by HARTRON. Although this facility is available to everyone including the non-teaching staff, many of the non-teaching staff could not avail of this facility due to work pressure. The College may consider to workout a mechanism by means of which they can also avail of the facility. The placement services need to be strengthened. The College may consider to provide placement activities in a professional way.

The College is State funded and managed. The Directorate of Higher Education, Government of Haryana appoints the Principal, faculty members, and non-teaching staff, as per the requirements of the College, and the Principal manages the activities of the College with in the policy laid down by the State Govt. and administered by the Directorate. The College Infrastructure has burgeoned over the years, but there is no corresponding increase in the manpower to service this infrastructure. Those who are in service seem to be without promotions for the past several years resulting in the frustration of the staff. The College may consider to look into these problems and may take them up with the Directorate. The teaching and learning processes become effective only when the faculty members are provided with facilities to update their knowledge from time to time by allowing them to participate in seminars/conferences/workshops and allowing them to go on sabbatical leave to pursue their higher studies such as PhD/M.Phil. The College may consider to take up with the Directorate to create such facilities for the faculty members. Teachers may be given some 15-20 days academic leave annually to participate in seminars /conferences/workshops and other academic activities. The Directorate may consider to give some autonomy to the Principal on these matters. The Principal may be permitted to use Amalgamated Fund to depute teachers for Seminar/Conference/Workshops. Also frequent transfers from one College to another College may disrupt their academic pursuits as such there could be an open transfer policy taking this fact into account. The Principal constitutes committees for managing various activities.

There is a large number of committees in place handling different activities. The Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff of the College are evaluated for their performance in a form and way prescribed by the Directorate. The College administers a large number of welfare schemes such as car-loans, wheat loans, medical reimbursement and loan facility to buy computers to Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff. There is a Grievances Redressal Cell in place to address the grievances of students. There is also a mechanism for the Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff of the College to express their grievances and get them redressed by the Directorate of Higher Education. The College being State funded and managed, its budgeting, and accounting systems are in accordance with the prescriptions of the State Government. It is given to understand that the whole accounting system is going to be computerized shortly and the Government of Haryana is funding the whole project. The College has taken initiative not only to get funds from the State but also to mobilize some from other sources such as MP (LADS) and others to finance its infrastructure. The College may consider to encourage its non-teaching staff to participate in professional development programmes that are essential to strengthen its management.

The College faculty has established links with agencies at national level for teaching and research. However its links with industry are rather weak. The College has introduced an innovative tutorial system in which all the students in the College are divided into groups, and they are offered tutorials. The tutorials are under the administration of a Tutorial Committee. Some academic Departments have set up audio-visual and book libraries in their own Departments. With the help of audio- visuals, the students are introduced to expert teachers on a variety of topics. Some Academic Departments borrow audio-visual from IGNOU Centre, and use them to supplement classroom teaching. Considering everything in place at the College, an attempt is made by the College to draw the best out of students and provide for their overall personality development. But then, the College may consider to initiate steps to adopt modern technologies of management, student exchange programmes with other institutions, linkages with national / international agencies for research and teaching and linkages with industry.

The College has moved to the present campus in the year 1991. Since that time , the College has made considerable progress in its pursuit of providing opportunities for higher education to the students' community in the Karnal region. Through its wide variety of academic options, well-qualified teaching faculty, and a highly disciplined approach in all its activities, the College has attracted the goodwill, attention and admiration of parents and students alike. The College has focused on its objective of imparting higher education with thrust for developing the personality and moulding the character of students coming from both rural and urban regions of this primarily agricultural location. The College has also been laying particular emphasis in its programmes on co-curricular activities like quizzes, debating, dramatics, music and various subject related Students' Associations and extra-curricular activities like sports and has achieved commendable successes at the university/State/Zonal/National levels. The roles of NSS and NCC (both Army and Air wings) of the College in developing the talents of students has been exemplary. These measures have enabled the College to train the students to become good citizens of the country. The Peer Team is convinced that the College has a number of praise worthy features leading to an improvement in the quality and standard of higher education imparted to the students.

However, the Peer Team would like to make a few suggestions/recommendations for the consideration of the College for bringing in further improvements in the quality and excellence of its programmes and activities;

There is an urgent need for the College to encourage teaching faculty to take up higher studies and research work whenever necessary, so that the quality of education is at the contemporary level; The College authorities may consider to give study leave, academic leave, incentives etc. to the teaching faculty by following UGC guidelines to enable them to attend conferences / workshops etc and also to publish their findings;

The ratio of teaching faculty to students at the College appears to be below the UGC guidelines. In particular newer areas like Electronics and Computer Science seem to be understaffed; The College authorities may give special attention to correct the situation urgently;

The College may consider introducing a mechanism for obtaining feedback from UG/PG Students on their course work, facilities etc on a regular basis, to bring in continuous improvements in its programmes and activities;

Speedy steps are required at the college to enable the students and staff (both teaching and non-teaching) to become proficient in the use of computers in their day-to-day work; Towards this, the College authorities may consider extending the availability of Tata Infotech Computer Centre for longer hours and also expanding the computer facilities to cover all its Departments;
Computerization of the Central Library and also of College administration need to be given urgent attention to improve their efficiency;

The College may consider reinstating the M.Sc.(Geography) programme which was doing well until its untimely closure sometime back, as this programme seems to be of great interest to the students' community;

The College may consider reviewing its non-teaching staff strength, so that the State Government could be approached to strengthen the same commensurate with the on-going programmes and activities as well as the present students' strength;

The College may consider seeking enhancement in the powers delegated to it by the State Government so that the decision making is quicker; At the same time, the College may seek autonomous status from the University to improve its academic work;

The College may consider to keep open its Central Library, computers and other expensive/common facilities over longer time periods everyday so as to enable their utilization in a better way.

The Peer Team is much impressed by the progress made by the College, particularly in the last 10-12 years, and the good ambience, atmosphere and opportunities that it is providing to the students' community in Haryana. The Peer Team is also pleased to see the respect and attention that the College has been receiving from the alumni, parents and the society at large. The Peer Team wishes the College all the best in its future plans and also in its endeavour to become a leading institution of higher education in the country in a short time. The Peer Team records its deep appreciation for the excellent cooperation, support and goodwill extended to it by the Principal and all the constituents of the College, but for which the task under taken by it would not have been easy.



Date of decision: 3.11.2008

Rulia Ram Gupta ......Appellant
Haryana Urban Development Authority and others .....Respondents


Mr. Sachin Mittal, Advocate for the appellant.
Mr. Dinesh Nagar, Advocate for respondents No.1 and 2.

Rakesh Kumar Garg, J.
This second appeal is by plaintiff No.1 challenging the judgment and decrees of the Courts below whereby the suit of the plaintiffs
for declaration to the effect that the demand of additional price raised by the defendants is illegal and the plaintiffs are not bound to pay the same and also for a decree for permanent injunction as consequential relief restraining the defendants from realizing the alleged additional price from the plaintiffs or to resume the plots of the plaintiffs, has been dismissed.

The defendant No.1 planned Sector 14 in the town of Karnal.

The total area under the scheme was 85.35 acres was divided as follows:-

i) Area under plots : 31.05 acres
ii) Area under showrooms : 1.25 acres
iii)Area reserved for govt. college : 20.00 acres
iv)Area under roads and open space : 17.40 acres
v) Area under shopping centre : 1.37 acres
vi)Area under green belt : 9.57 acres
vii)Area under Community Centre : 2.34 acres
viii)Area under primary school : 1.75 acres
ix)Area under public purposes : 0.73 acres

The defendant-respondents advertised for sale, various residential plots carved out within the sector and invited applications thereafter. The plaintiffs are either allottees or purchasers of the plots from the original allottees. Clause 9 of their allotment letters runs as follows:

The above price of the plot is subject to variation with reference to the actual measurement of plot as well as in case of enhancement of compensation of acquisition cost of land in this sector by the Court or otherwise and you shall have to pay this additional price of the plot, if any, as determined by the department, within 30 days from the date of demand.

Complying with the letters of allotments the allottees/purchasers had made payments of the entire amount of consideration of their respective plots. Still when the defendants raised demand of additional amount of Rs.38.48 per sq.yard and issued notices
upon the plaintiffs in March, 1990, the plaintiffs brought the present suit seeking a decree of declaration that the demand of the above additional price raised by the defendants vide impugned notice like Ex.P2 and Ex.D12 to Ex.27 was illegal, null and void.

The suit was resisted by the defendants by pleading that the
additional price vide impugned notices has been raised in view of the enhancement of the compensation of the land acquired for carving out the sector. They further pleaded that enhanced compensation has been spread on the entire area of the sector proportionately. They further pleaded that the area covered under government college, school, shopping centre has also been taken into account while spreading the enhanced compensation. They pleaded that the calculations have been made as per rules and the same were reflected in the notices. They denied that the impugned notices did not reflect the amount due from the allottees in terms of the enhancement. In the end it was pleaded that as
per clause 9 of the allotment letters issued to various allottees the HUDA was within its right to issue such notices raising demand of additional price after the competent authority under the Land Acquisition Act enhanced the price of the land acquired for carving out the sector. In the case in hand when the notices were issued in terms of the enhancement awarded by the authority under the Land Acquisition Act there is no illegality therein. The defendants also justified the rate of interest to be 15 percent per annum.

After conclusion of the evidence of the parties, the trial Court dismissed the suit of the plaintiffs.

The aforesaid judgment and decree of the trial Court was challenged by the plaintiffs by filing an appeal which was dismissed by the Additional District Judge, Karnal vide judgment and decree dated 26.3.2003.

Feeling not satisfied, the plaintiff No.1 has filed the present appeal in this Court. Vide order dated 24.5.2005, this Court found that the
appellant has no case on merits; however, notice of motion was issued observing that rate of interest being charged by the respondents is on the higher side.

Learned counsel appearing on behalf of respondents No.1 and 2 has stated at the Bar that the interest is being charged from the
appellant on account of payment of enhanced compensation at the same rate which is being paid to the land owners for the said enhancement.

There is no dispute that vide impugned notices, the additional price which has been sought from the appellant is on account of enhanced compensation paid to the land owners. Therefore, in view of the above statement made by the learned counsel for the respondents, it cannot be held that the rate of interest which is being charged from the appellant is on the higher side.

In view thereof, I find no merit in the appeal. No substantial question of law arises in the present appeal.
