DEV SAMAJ COLLEGE FOR WOMEN FEROZEPUR CITY Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERS

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH

Civil Writ Petition No.8387 of 2009

Date of Decision: May 28, 2009

Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur City .....PETITIONER(S)
VERSUS
State of Punjab and Another .....RESPONDENT(S)

CORAM:
HON BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA

PRESENT: -
Mr. Sameer Sachdeva, 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.

Heard.
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.

(AJAI LAMBA)
JUDGE

Students dwell on philosophical concepts

As many as 70 philosophy undergraduates from Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur, today participated in a national seminar-cum-workshop on ‘Philosophy in the Age of Globalisation’ organised jointly by the department of philosophy, Panjab University, and department of philosophy and critique, Ferozepur Chapter, Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur.

Speakers discussed various concepts of philosophy relating to self and society. The students raised important questions relating to the need of philosophical thinking in the social change. Chairman Dr V.T. Sebastian appreciated the students of Ferozepur for their participation in the seminar.

He focused on the logical reasoning as the basic methodology of philosophy and said the study of philosophy helped in reading, writing and analytical skills.

Among others who addressed the participants were Prof Reena Patra, Prof Dharmendra Goel, Prof Dharmanand Sharma, Prof Veena Kapoor, Prof Geeta Manaktala, Dr H.P. Sah, Dr Shivani Sharma and Lallan Singh Baghel from the philosophy department.

LECTURE: The Panjab University Teachers Association, ICSSR, and ‘Critique’ jointly organised a lecture on ‘Indo-US Nuclear Deal’ today. The lecture was delivered by Prof Achin Vanaik, department of political science, University of Delhi, New Delhi. Prof Randhir Singh, eminent scholar and political analyst, presided over the lecture.

Prof Vanaik clearly spelled out three aspects of the nuclear deal: one strategic political partnership with the USA; two, nuclear weapon manufacturing by India; and three nuclear power generation to meet the energy needs.

To these three aspects of the deal, there are four different responses. “First response is outright celebration of the deal whereby, they think that India is going to become a global player in all respects. In the first view at the foremost are Prime Minister of India and his camp followers,” said Prof Vanaik. He also pointed out a small minority of intellectuals such as Praful Bidwai, who were against any form of nuclearisation of the globe as it was going to prove disastrous in the long run. Prof Randhir Singh, in his presidential remarks, said India was standing at the most important crossroad in the world history.


Jhankar 2005 concludes

The three-day cultural function, Jhankar 2005, concluded at Panjab University here today with winners of the various categories getting the prizes.

At the valedictory function organised at the PU, Dean, Students Welfare, Prof Nirmal Singh, Dean, Students Welfare (Women) Dr Meenakshi Malhotra, and former president of the Panjab University Students Council Union, Bhupinder Singh Bhuppi were present and gave away prizes to the winners.

Earlier in the day, the one-act play, mime and mono-acting competitions were held. Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur, bagged the first prize in the one-act play, while the PU campus finished runners-up. The MLN College, Yamuna Nagar, came third.

In mime, Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur, again walked away with the top honours.


UGC grant for PU colleges

In an encouraging development, the University Grants Commission has sanctioned additional Rs 50 lakh for colleges of Panjab University.

The grant list includes approval for more than 110 projects covering more than 80 affiliated colleges. The main grounds are undergraduate and post-graduate development projects, research projects and construction of hostels and canteen among others.

Dr Deepak Manmohan, Dean, College Development Council, said the grants had been conveyed through an official communication by the UGC. This more than Rs 50 lakh comes in addition to more than Rs 40 lakh reported a few days earlier for other activities in university colleges.

Dr Deepak Manmohan said greater care in the amounts sanctioned this time had been laid on post-graduate and under-graduate development schemes.

Few colleges named in the list for post-graduate development schemes covers the local Home Science College, Khalsa College for women, Ludhiana, the local Guru Gobind Singh College, GHG Harprakash College for Education, Sidhwan Khurd , Guru Nanak Girls College, Ludhiana, the local Government College for Education, Dev Samaj College for Women, Ferozepur, and the local Sri Guru Gobind Singh College, among others.

The list of undergraduate development programmes far exceeds the reason to be cited while allocation of grants when compared to others. The list figures Government College, Hoshiarpur, DAV College of Education, Abohar, DM College, Moga, GGDSD College, Hariana, SD College Hoshiarpur, Government College for women, Ludhiana and SDS College for women, Lopon, among others.

The stress in the present batch seems to be on undergraduate development programmes. There are more than 80 grants have been sanctioned under this head. About 18 grants feature in the list of post-graduate development programmes.

A number of colleges have managed more than one grant but for different projects.

A sum of Rs 3 lakh has been granted for the construction of a women’s hostel in GGS DAV Centenary College, Jalalabad, Rs 6500 for minor research projects at GCG, Sector 42 and SCD College, Ludhiana, Rs 75000 for GHG Khalsa College, Gurusar Sudhar and a one-time grant of Rs 7 lakh for Dev Samaj College of Education, Ferozepur for books and equipment. Of the other gainers is Lajpat Rai College, Jagraon, with a grant of more than Rs 10 lakh.

The list clearly displays importance on development programmes at the undergraduate and the postgraduate levels.

Dr Deepak Manmohan said that a number of sanctions are part of a scheme initiated earlier. Number of colleges which have justified expenditure of the earlier amounts have been sent information for the second instalments.

A letter of Mr R.L. Jhamb, Under Secretary, UGC, has asked colleges to maintain proper accounts of the expenditure. The utilisation certificates have to be furnished to the UGC at the earliest.

The letter says that “assets acquired wholly or substantially as a part of the UGC grant shall not be disposed off or encumbered or utilised for a purpose other than a purpose for what it was given.”

Dr Ravindra Kumar, a Deputy Secretary, UGC, and incharge, has mentioned different heads under which the grant for development programmes has to be including books, journals, equipment, field work, extension activities and examination related projects.
