The assessment of the institution under various criteria, the salient features of the institution as well as the issues of concern are presented in the following pages.
SECTION 2: CRITERION-WISE ANALYSIS
CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
Apropos to the goals and objectives of providing access to higher education to the students of this region and in particular girls, the College is offering B.A., B.Com., B.Sc. and M.Com courses. It follows the syllabi prescribed by the University of Pune for the Arts, Science and Commerce courses both at the under-graduate and post-graduate level. All these programmes are conventional in nature. The students have the flexibility to select the courses within the elective options decided by the University, but the options are limited..
The College is also offering some vocational courses in Advertising Sales Promotion and Sales Management as prescribed in the vocational pattern by the U.G.C. The college is also offering yoga and commerce subjects to the arts students as optional courses. Different short-term certificate courses in Computer Programming are offered to the students on a self-financed basis. An exclusive arrangement for a teacher, and support staff is made to run these courses. 14 computer systems are available for the purpose.
The Principal and two other faculty members are members of Board of Studies of the Pune University. The teachers are actively participating in different academic bodies of the University. One of the faculty members of the Commerce Department has acted as a Chairman of Board of Studies of University of Pune. The senior teachers are actively participating in different assignments like- paper setting, evaluation, moderation etc.
The College invites guest lecturers from other institutes for supplementing the work of the regular faculty. The students of Economics Department carry out surveys on the socio-economic problems of the surrounding villages. The College organises literary meets and cultural programmes.
CRITERION II: TEACHING-LEARNING AND EVALUATION
The students are selected for admission to various courses on the basis of their academic records in H. S. C. Board examination. All the students who are eligible as per university criteria are admitted. Hence there is no scope for testing their aptitude before admission. The College may however assess student's knowledge and skills after admission and conduct bridge courses particularly in subjects like Mathematics. The College has made provision for conducting remedial courses financed by the UGC for disadvantaged students in different subjects. The same may be extended to other subjects as well. There is no scheme for advanced learners to work ahead of the rest. The students may be encouraged to prepare for the competitive examinations by providing extra library facilities, seminars, field visits, etc. The College encourages the teachers to make teaching plans in the beginning of the academic year. The teachers are preparing teaching plans, which is monitored by the Head of the Department and the Principal. The number of teaching days is more than 200 in an academic year.
The pedagogy used by the College is the lecture method. Other methods like- use of audio-visual aids, group discussions, and industrial visits for learning etc. are not evident. The overhead projector is used for seminar purposes only. The College does not have centralised media facility to prepare audio-visual and other teaching materials. The College conducts periodic examinations, tutorials, seminars etc.
The College has 23 faculty members: 21 full-time and 2 part-time. Among the teachers, 1 has obtained Ph.D. Degree, 6 have M. Phil Degree and 1 has a professional qualification of I.C.W.A. The recruitment of faculty is as per the University guidelines and the State Government policy. The College encourages teachers to participate in seminars, conferences and to undertake research projects. Two teachers and the principal have been awarded financial assistance under the Minor Research Scheme of the UGC. The physical instructor of the college acts as a resource person in yoga training programmes organised by the University and other institutes.
The College has been following the practice of students' appraisal on the performance of teachers, by asking the opinion individually, The college does not have the system of providing a structured questionnaire for the purpose. The College may take cognisance of the students' opinion and initiate corrective action to improve the teaching-learning process in the College. The College follows the self-appraisal method of evaluation for teachers in the format provided by the University. The college has recently introduced the method of getting responses from students on different aspects. This may further be strengthened by performance evaluation of teachers..
CRITERION III: RESEARCH, CONSULTANCY AND EXTENSION
The College promotes research by giving study leave to teachers, and by appointing ad hoc teachers on temporary basis for managing the workload. One teacher from the departments of Commerce has authored books in accounting and commerce in Marathi language, which are used as textbooks in the faculty. The College may constitute a research Committee and encourage other teachers also to submit research proposals.
The College does not provide any consultancy service. Competent teachers and departments should be encouraged to offer consultancy based on local area needs and available market.
The College has a given charge to a teacher for carrying out different extension activities under the NSS Scheme. There are 300 students (218 boys and 92 girls) volunteered for this. Various extension activities carried out in the Cell include social work, health and hygiene awareness, AIDs awareness, blood donation camps, eradication of superstition, tree plantation and conservation of nature etc. The students expect that college should take appropriate actions for starting NCC for boys and girls.
There is a scope for further utilisation of the potential of students for extension activities and outreach programmes especially in the field of women empowerment since the number of girl students in the College is more than 50% (516 out of 1025).
The teachers of the College have delivered popular lectures and published articles in newspapers on contemporary issues.
CRITERION IV: INFRASTRUCTURE AND LEARNING RESOURCES
During the past 35 years, the College has expanded its infrastructure facilities in the form of a building with 18 class-rooms, a multi purpose hall, girls hostel, multipurpose gymnasium and library. The building is shared for Post Graduate Courses, Senior College and Junior College for different time slots. All the facilities and infrastructure of the College including Science laboratories are shared with junior College. As a result of this, the college is not in a position to optimally utilise the resources it has created. There is an urgent need to have separate and exclusive facilities for senior college. The Principal is common for both junior and senior College. The Science Departments are located in a separate newly constructed building. The laboratory facilities need improvement in terms of space and equipment. The College may develop separate laboratories for Degree College and junior College.
The library facility is also common for all the programmes. The College has a total collection of 10,167 books for meeting the requirements of both the junior and the senior college. It subscribes to 34 magazines. Most of the books are old and there is a need to acquire new books. Since the college runs M.Com. Course, there should be an exclusive collection of books and journals in the commerce department. The services of college librarian are used for junior college also. The Library Advisory Committee helps in the smooth functioning of various activities related to it. The book bank facilities are available in the library. The photocopying facility needs to be provided in the library. The College has started computerisation of the library services. The space available in the Reading room inadequate since it is common for both Junior and Senior College students. The furniture that is provided in the reading room is only chair with desk mounted on it, which is not convenient for seating and writing. The college should provide tables and chairs to the students. The College has a central computer facility. There are 15 computers in the computer centre with an inkjet printer. There is a need to upgrade the computers with the copyright software. The access to the computer facility is only to those who join the certificate course only and not other students. The College needs to have Internet connectivity with the cyber-café facility for the benefit of students in order to acquaint them with the information super highway.
The College has an indoor multi-gymnasium of 9 stations for boys. The College has playgrounds for different games. The college should provide hall for indoor games. The College regularly participates in the different University level meets. The College prepares the students for participation at University, State and National level.
CRITERION V: STUDENT SUPPORT AND PROGRESSION
The percentage of students appearing for the university examination after the minimum period of study ranges between 33 to 52 percent. The drop out rate is around 9 per cent. The College may analyse the reasons for the high drop- out rate, and initiate corrective measure by speaking to parents, counselling the students, offering bridge courses and remedial teaching. The pass percentage of the students in the university examination is below that of the university average. The standards of internal examination may be enhanced. The College may adopt 'Mentor System' thereby each teacher is entrusted with the responsibility of a group of students. This would help students in developing their personalities and also building confidence in them. The College has no record of its students passing examination like- UGC-NET, SET, GATE, GRE and TOFFEL. The learning outcome needs to be improved.
Financial aid is provided to the needy students. The students get the government scholarship available to the backward class communities and physically challenged students. The information regarding various scholarships and students amenities is to be disseminated quickly to the students concerned. At present, the College does not have an exclusive placement cell. There is a need to establish career guidance cell for the benefits of the students. The college should make efforts to improve the communication skills of the students by providing systematic coaching through the audio visual aids. The college may create language laboratory for the purpose.
The college regularly participates in different sports events organised at university, state and national level. One student has been selected for republic day parade from the college. One student has participated in power lifting competition held at South Korea as a representative of India. One student has been awarded Shivchatrpati Award and a Gold Medal at national level games event. Some students have been awarded best drama artist, one act play in different state level cultural meets.
The College has no formal Alumni Association. The College should make all possible efforts to make the alumni base sound for mobilising the resources for the development of the College. The college may encourage the parents to help in periodic assessment of the functioning of the College and suggest measures for improving the office work, sports facilities and co-curricular activities.
CRITERION VI: ORGANISATION AND MANAGEMENT
The Indriyani Vidya Mandir governs the College. The periodic meeting of the Local Management Committee analyses the working of the College and provides the required financial assistance. The LMC may initiate an academic audit of the College and review the programs offered in order to introduce socially relevant and job-oriented courses. Principal does internal co-ordination and monitoring. Heads of department, faculty members and activity committees takes care of the routine and day-to-day activities of the College. The office superintendent takes care of the administrative jobs and monitors the work of non-teaching staff. The College has installed four computers for office automation and computer applications. The College has an internal audit mechanism.
The College operates different welfare programmes- like- Students Welfare Fund, Staff Welfare Fund etc. The College has introduced the group insurance scheme for students. The Management provides different types of loans to teaching and non-teaching staff members. There is a Grievance Redress Cell in the College.
CRITERION VII: HEALTHY PRACTICES
The Peer Team has identified a few unique features that enhance the academic ambience of the College. These are as follows:
It offers self-financed certificate courses in computer literacy to the students helping them to gain computer knowledge. This also helps in raising additional resources for the College.
The College is engaged in extension activities through its NSS wing.

There are some good features of quality assurance and standards in the College. The Peer Team, however would like to bring to the notice of the College certain concerns and make the following recommendations for its consideration:
The existing programmes may be reviewed and job oriented and more vocational courses are introduced.
