Clash over control of DAV schoolsUnruly scenes were witnessed here today when two groups tried to take control of the local Dr MRS Bhalla DAV Girls High School Kila Mandi and Agyawanti Marwaha DAV Girls Senior Secondary School Dashehra Ground, Batala.
The trouble started when Ms Veena Watni principal of the local RR Bawa DAV College for Girls, along with some of her staff members, Ms Shabnam Handa, principal Dr Daulat Ram Bhalla DAV Centenary Public School, Batala, and some other persons forcibly entered the office of Dr MRS Bhalla DAV Girls School Kila Mandi and pushed away Mrs. Kanta Mahajan out of office and herself occupied the chair of the principal.
On receiving this information, Mr Jagdish Sahni ex-MLA, Batala, chairman of the local management committee, along with his supporters arrived at the scene which led to an altercation and unruly scenes. The intruders were made to leave the place by the local chairman, Mr Sahni.
Simultaneously, another group, led by Ms J Kakaria, principal, BBK DAV College for girls, Amritsar, along with Dr Aruna Anand, principal DAV College of Education, Amritsar and many others entered Agya Wanti Marwaha DAV senior Secondary school, Murgi Mohalla, Batala and occupied the office of the Principal.
Ms Shanta Oberoi, local principal, was made to sign some papers under duress. She made a written complaint, which was signed by 20 other staff members of the school to the local police regarding the high-handedness of the aforesaid alleged representatives of the DAV Management Committee, New Delhi.
Mr Jagdish Sahni, ex-MLA, and chairman of the LMC of this school, along with Mr JS Nayyar, manager, LMC, along with many others arrived on the scene. Another group, led by Mr Inder Sekhri brother of the local MLA and Parliamentary Secretary, Mr Ashwani Sekhri, arrived on the spot along with his supporters.
Mr A.C. Preet, principal, DAV School for boys, Batala, had a tiff with Mr Sahni and his supporters. Both the groups openly had heated arguments. Both groups raised slogans against each other, at which a police contingent present on the spot removed Mr Sahni from the scene.

Section- III- Overall Analysis
The R.R Bawa D.A.V College for girls, Batala is the first woman college in Batala, Punjab. It started initially with 42 girls students in the premises of Danik Prathna Sabha of Batala. Mrs. S.Roy was the first principal of the college who collected the donation to run the college. The Motto is â€˜COME TO LEARN, GO TO SERVEâ€™. At present the college is having Minority Status.
The college is providing some help to the nearby students through counseling and lending books from the book bank. The sports women get hostel facilities by way of partial rental charge. If the suggestion given in the report are implemented it would enrich the college atmosphere more. In the race of quality improvement, the college should observe and implement the following suggestions: -
*The teaching faculty needs to improve more. They should obtain PhD degree and pursue Research Work.
*It is disheartening to find out that the College hardly follows UGC norm on appointing the teachers; most of the teachers have not qualified. NET or SET. Very few are PhD and few are M.Phil.
*Not all the teachers have attended the requisite number of Refresher Course, they should do it.
*The teachers should apply for Major/Minor Research projects from UGC/CSIR/DST/ Dept. of HRD ministry or other agencies.
*The students Alumni/Parents strongly voiced to start PG Degree in English, Fine Arts, Biotech, Hindi, Science Subjects, M.Sc. in Computer Sciences and Home Science. College should undertake serious efforts to Start these courses.
*Since the college believes to value based and employment oriented education, hence it is suggested that some new courses also be incorporated in the curriculum like Communicative Hindi and Punjabi, Functional English, Comparative Literature etc. Short term and vocational courses in Computer Science as self- financing course for the general woman population of the area is suggested to be added.
*The college is proud to have Talented prize winning sports students. It is suggested therefore that the college may start UG and PG courses in the Dept. of Physical Education.
*The Peer Team members observed that the college has natural talent for singing. It is regretted that the College does not provide vocal music and dance as elective subjects. Since these are career-oriented subjects, hence the college should start vocal music and dance subject at UG level at the first instance.
*The existing career counseling and placement cell be strengthened by providing full time staff assistance for having constant interaction with the Industries and Companies.
*NCC activities should be given greater encouragement in order to facilitate the involvement of the girls to various defence service sectors.
*NSS components of the College are good. It has adopted 5 villages in five years and various awareness programmes are initiated. They can also take projects on pollution free society.
*Each Department should make an effort to establish linkage with the national agencies for research, curriculum and faculty exchange programmes.
*The team is shocked to find out that the teacher of Music (Inst) and students were not aware of good books on music, although a few research oriented books are available in the library.
*The timing of the library be extended according to the needs of the students on holidays and Sundays.
*The hostel facilities are inadequate. Three Students are adjusted in two beds. The students are not provided separate beds and writing table-chairs.
*The hostel students may be provided computer to access Internet in their free time.
*The hostel inmates be provided with recent publications of magazines/periodicals.
*The teachers and students need to be encouraged to take up projects related to bio fertilizers, bio fuels, gas plants etc. The team appreciates the efforts of the Zoology Department in the field of vermin- compost and suggests that the College may establish plant for the project to generate the resource.
*Most of the teachers are daily passengers. The college should construct residential accommodation for the teaching and non-teaching staff. This may help the College in attracting talented people from far off places.
*Group Insurance Scheme for college staff needs to be introduced.
*For attaining excellence in higher education, the Management and the Principal should prepare a Vision Document 2010 and publicize it among the teachers, students and local population. The Vision document should include multi disciplinary courses such as Comparative Literature, Microbiology, Genetic Engineering, Mobile Communication etc.
*The welfare Schemes undertaken by NSS should include popularization of water conservation, energy conservation and themes on Time Management, Traffic Rules.
The Peer team takes the opportunity to thank the D.A.V Management Committee, Principal, Faculty Members, non-Teaching Staff, Alumni, Students and their Parents for providing adequate information about college functioning. The members of the team convey them good wishes for making sincere efforts to build up overall personality of the young women of the region.

R R BAWA DAV COLLEGE FOR GIRLS BATALA Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERSIN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH
Civil Writ Petition No.7843 of 2009
Date of Decision: May 21, 2009
R.R. Bawa DAV College for Girls, Batala .....PETITIONER(S)
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)
HON BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA
Mr. Aman Chaudhary, Advocate, for the petitioner.
AJAI LAMBA, J (Oral)
The prayer made in this civil writ petition filed under Article 226/227 of the Constitution of India is for issuance of a writ in the nature of mandamus directing the respondents to comply with the directions given by Division Bench of this Court while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.14340
of 2006 titled Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 18.12.2007.
It has been brought out that the petitioner is helping the State to achieve its welfare policies. The State of Punjab implemented a scheme known as `95% Deficit Grant in Aid Scheme for granting financial assistance to non government aided colleges. The State Government took a conscious decision to provide financial assistance to private aided colleges to enable these colleges to pay the scales recommended by the UGC so as to maintain minimum standards in higher education on
the basis of sanctioned strength of teaching and non teaching employees. Because the respondents are not releasing the admissible grant in aid, the petitioner is unable to pay the teaching and non
teaching staff which seriously hampers the working of the Institution.
Issue notice of motion.
Mr. Anil Sharma, Senior Deputy Advocate General, Punjab, on the asking of the Court, accepts notice. Copy of the petition has been handed over.
Learned counsel for the respondents has not been able to dispute that grant in aid is required to be released in terms of the judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.
I have considered the issue. The Division Bench in the case of Arya College, Ludhiana (supra),
issued directions in the following terms:-
Accordingly, we direct the State to meet its liability as per its declared scheme within three months from today.
The State will be at liberty to rely upon the record already available or to have access to such other record of the petitioner-college as, may be necessary, but on this account, the State will not avoid its liability. We make it clear that Secretary, Higher Education, Punjab will be held
personally liable in case of default in meeting the liability.
This Court has considered the very issue while dealing with Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009
titled BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 21.3.2009 and Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others , decided on 24.4.2008, in which also the respondent-State has been directed to release the grant in aid.
In Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007 titled `The Managing Committee, Guru Gobind Singh College, Saghera, Barnala, District Sangrur vs. State of Punjab and Another decided on 19.2.2008, similar view has been taken and direction was issued to the respondents to release grant in aid.
Special Leave Petition was filed by the State of Punjab, the same being SLP No.15798 of 2008 which was dismissed on 8.12.2008.
Considering the directions issued by this Court in various cases as noticed above, and in the facts and circumstances of this case, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 4 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner.
So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid due is concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representation to the respondents.
Petition is allowed in the above terms.
