Since it is a evening college located in the city of Bangalore, it functions from 2 p.m. to 9.00 p.m. So it is possible for those who are employed in factories, offices, hotels etc. to pursue higher education and could come up in life. Though there are no separate support services like NSS, NCC etc, the teachers take the responsibility of conducting sports and cultural events and the students are encouraged to participate at their convenient time. The assessment of the college under various criteria are given below:

Section 2: Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
Since the college is affiliated to the Bangalore University, it follows the curriculum designed by the University. So there is little scope for innovation. However the senior members of the staff are the members of the Board of Studies and they participate in curriculum designing and syllabus framing work at the university level. The college offers only two under graduate programmes namely a) B. A. - with Political Science, Sociology and optional Kannada, Sociology as electives with Economics and History and one of the languages of Hindi, Kannada, Sanskrit and English being compulsory and b) B. Com. degree courses. During the last three years, no new courses are introduced. The college has applied for 1) P.G. Diploma in Marketing Management 2) Entrepreneurship and Small Business Management. The college has an academic audit by the University Audit Staff/Local Inspection Committee.

The Timetable is so framed as to enable the students to come to the classes in the evening after finishing their job during the day. Though the university syllabus is followed, efforts are taken to achieve the mission and goals of the institution by its co-curricular and extra curricular activities. The teachers, while imparting instructions keep in mind the mission of providing value-based education to the younger generation and preparing them to meet the challenges of life and inculcate knowledge that fosters self-learning and self-reliance.

Criterion II: Teaching -Learning and Evaluation
The students are selected and admitted in the college to various courses on the basis of academic merit by following the rules and regulations framed by the Government of Karnataka and the University of Bangalore. Majority of the students are employed during day time. Regular class tests are conducted in the college. Slow learners are identified and special coaching is given to them. Advanced learners are provided with reference books. They are encouraged to participate in debates and seminars. The teachers prepare Teaching Plan well in advance. They maintain a Work Diary and the Principal inspects it regularly.

Apart from the conventional methods like classroom lectures, group discussions, use of maps and other teaching aids form part of the pedagogical exercise. Educational tours, excursions and industrial visits are arranged periodically to make the learning process more effective and meaningful. The teachers participate in state level and university level seminars, conferences and workshops to update their knowledge in their concerned subjects. They also attend orientation and refresher courses conducted by the Academic Staff College periodically, which help them to enrich their knowledge. The Principal constitutes various committees comprising teachers such as sports committee, cultural committee, examination committee etc. for smooth functioning of curricular, co-curricular and extra curricular activities. The college has yet to establish national and international linkages for teaching and research.

The number of teaching days in the college is 207 out of 290 working days. The teaching positions are created and the teachers are recruited in the college according to the Karnataka Government and the University rules. The college has freedom and resources to appoint and pay temporary/ad hoc teaching staff. To evaluate the performance of the faculty in teaching, the college follows the teacher performance appraisal method as prescribed by the Directorate of Collegiate Education, Karnataka. The College collects students' evaluation of campus experience and the feedback is properly attended to.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
Being an under graduate institution, the college has only limited facilities or opportunities for research. However, among the 12 members of the teaching staff, a few have registered for research degree as part time research scholars. One part-time teacher is holding doctorate degree. Some teachers have published books and articles in their concerned subjects. Since the college is located in a metropolis, active research culture is to be encouraged in the institution by making use of all the available facilities in the city. Organising seminars and launching publication programmes can go a long way towards enhancing research culture in the campus. Faculty participation in consultancy and extension work would certainly contribute to maintaining quality. Extension activities of the college includes community development, health and hygiene awareness, blood donation, AIDS awareness and environment awareness. Since it is an evening college and majority of the students are employed during daytime, there is limited scope for outreach programmes, research and extension activities.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college is located in a prime area of Bangalore city on a Campus of 4.3 acre, which is shared, with the Day College. It has a master plan and has the potentiality to meet the need for augmenting the infrastructure to keep pace with academic growth. Daily maintenance of the infrastructure is done by the college while major work is done by the management through the estate engineer. On Sundays and holidays, the college building is utilized for conducting public examinations. The college auditorium is used by the public also for conducting social and cultural programmes.

Efforts are being made to keep the Campus beautiful and pollution free. There is an Advisory Committee for the College Library. The library has 6585 books in its stock and subscribes 5 newspapers and 10 periodicals and magazines. The library has book bank facility. Activities like lending of books, stock verification, purchase of books and book bank are being computerized. Computers, Audio Video Cassettes and Internet facility are available in the campus. The library functions for 290 days in the year. The college could make use of services of inter-university centers like IUCAA, IAS, INFLIBNET etc. The library has to subscribe standard journals of all subjects. There is no provision made by the University for Evening College students to participate in any inter University sports and games. Even in the absence of a full time Physical Education Director, the College promotes sports and games with the help of a teacher who has additional charge of these activities. 30% of the girls students are availing hostel accommodation. The College has plans to start a Canteen and a Printing Press.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
Students are mainly drawn from the semi-urban areas. 75% of the students of this institution are appearing for the qualifying examination after the minimum period of study. The drop out rate is 25%. Progression to employment and further study is 20%. One of the positive aspects of the College is its alumni who occupy different positions in life. It would be good for the institution if it can make use of the goodwill of the alumni in transforming the College into a center of excellence. An Alumni Association has started functioning in the College recently but it needs to be strengthened and institutionalized within the premises. The College publishes the updated prospectus annually. SC/ST/BC/Lower Income Group students enjoy financial aid from the Central and state Governments. Recreational/Leisure time facilities available in the college include indoor-outdoor games, debate club, students' magazine and cultural programmes.

Criterion VI: Organisation and Management

The College is run by Bharath Education Society, which is registered under the Societies Registration Act. The institution has an efficient coordinating and monitoring system. At the top level, there is the Managing Committee, which chalks out policy maters and at the college level; there is the Governing Council to look after the routine affairs of the College

The College has an inbuilt mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff. The finances of the institution are judiciously allocated and effectively utilized to make its programmes cost effective. The College has to adopt imaginative and effective resource mobilization and management strategies. For preparing the Academic calendar, a special committee is constituted in the College. Thus the academic and administrative planning are coordinated. The College has plans to conduct professional development (orientation on accounts, files maintenance and office procedures) programmes for the non-teaching staff. The tuition and other fees are regulated by the State Government and the University. The management has devised a good internal audit mechanism in the institution. Moderate welfare programmes are implemented in the college for its staff. The need for a Grievance Redressal Cell in the college is felt. All the major purchases are effected by following stores purchase rules after obtaining sanction from the management.

Criterion VII: Healthy Practices
The College has adopted a mechanism to control internal quality checks. The management is alert and keeps track of the performance of the staff. Through periodical tests and examinations, the performance of the students and teachers is checked. Annual examination results are reviewed and follow up action is taken in the light of the review. The management reviews the activities of the staff. The Principal maintains individual confidential reports regarding the conduct of the staff teaching and non-teaching. It is suggested that the College may adopt the latest managerial concepts such as strategic planning, teamwork, decision-making and computerization. The College imparts value-based education through various programmes. National festivals are celebrated in the College in the most befitting manner. Cultural activities are encouraged.

Section 3: Overall Analysis
The college established way back in 1984 has made gradual progress in achieving objectives of its foundation. It has catered to the need of disadvantaged section of the society struggling for coming up in the life. The contribution of College in serving the 'have-nots' of the society is really laudable. However, it appears that college has not adequately responded to the demands of competitive world in the era of globalization. The college needs to strive for rejuvenation by adopting modern managerial skills if it desires to have its own stamp in the age of information technology.

The Peer team would like to place on record the following commendable points of the institution.

The college gives importance to the socially backward and educationally marginalized sections of the society. Most of the students who hail from this poor sections are employed during day time in factories, hotels, schools, call centers and private establishments. The college provides opportunity to them for their higher education.

The relations between the Management, Staff both teaching and non-teaching and students are very cordial, which conductive for smooth and successful functioning of the institution.

The sports and games activities of the college especially basketball and cricket are noteworthy.

The promotion of cultural activities of the students is praiseworthy.

Principal and Teachers extend financial assistance to the poor students to pay their college fees.

However, the Peer team would like to suggest the following points for further development of the institution.

The college should seek UGC recognition under section 2f & 12B

The college should introduce Job Oriented, IT based courses, P.G. Courses, Tourism etc.

The college may start some add on courses on Self-financing basis

The college management may appoint one Liaison Officer to mobilize resources from funding agencies.

Teaching faculty may make efforts to acquire research degrees and engage in research and publications.

Acquiring membership of professional bodies by teachers is to be encouraged.

Management may adopt innovative strategies for optimum use of infrastructure and resources through modern techniques.

The allotment of funds to the library is inadequate. More funds are to be allotted for the purchase of standard books and journals.

A permanent librarian is to be appointed.

The college may establish contacts and make use of the services of inter-university centers like IUCAA, IAS, INFLIBNET etc.

The college should organize seminars/conferences etc. to make teaching-learning process more effective.

The alumni association is to be registered so that its services could be utilized for the progress of the college.

The Grievance Redressal Cell and Career Guidance and Placement Cell should be activated and placed under the charge of a senior staff member.

Efforts should be taken to give special coaching to improve the communication skills of the students.

It is expected that this Assessment and Accreditation exercise would help the college in quest of quality and excellence.

The Peer team would like to acknowledge with profound gratitude the whole-hearted cooperation extended by the Management, Principal, Staff, Students, Parents and Alumni. The team wishes a bright future to this college.
