The regulation of the university does not have provision for flexibility in time frame and horizontal mobility. The subject options available in the college for students in Arts faculty are English, Punjabi, Hindi, Economics, History, Political Science, Geography, Philosophy, Sanskrit, Sociology, Psychology, Physical Education, Music(vocal), Music(Instrumental), Office Management and Secretarial Practices.

There is a commitment to the academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular and sports activities of students in this premier college. Students are exposed to the social milieu through extension and other allied activities. The College over the years especially under the dynamic leadership of the present Principal, who is due to retire in a couple of days, has earned good reputation and goodwill among the people for providing opportunities of Higher Education in the surrounding area. It has diversified its academic ambience by offering good number of courses at the Undergraduate level along with a few certificates courses in Information Technology for the benefit of its students . The interactive role of Parent-Teacher Association in maintaining discipline and overall growth of the institution and its students is substantial.

The institution supports students in their curricular as well as co-curricular activities. Extension and outreach programmes of the College are appreciable. Organization and Management is quite sound and participatory. Financial management is prudent and the Government Auditor regularly audits accounts.
While appreciating the progress of this College, the Peer Team wishes to suggest the following for the future development of the institution.
*The College may think of starting new relevant PG courses for better progression.
The College may apply for Autonomy for greater freedom in introducing new career and job oriented courses like Bio-technology, Mass Communication and Journalism, Environmental studies and Management, Home Science, Fashion technology and Embroidery, Tourism and Travel Management, Electronics and Instrumentation, Military Science Women Studies, Pest Control and Management, etc. and bringing structural changes in the existing traditional courses keeping pace with the challenges of the 21st Century.
*However, before introducing the new courses, college should obtain feedback from academic peers, employers, and stakeholders.
*Laboratories require modernization.
*The Management needs to encourage more teachers to obtain M.Phil. and Ph.D. degrees at the earliest to strengthen the academic base of the College.
*Teaching may be made interactive and interesting with the use of modern electronic gadgets like OHP, LCD, CD, internet and other audio-video aids.
*Teachers may be encouraged to submit research projects to various funding agencies.
*Teachers need to participate and present papers at State and National level seminars ,conferences and symposia .
*Library facilities need to be strengthened to cater to the needs of the growing requirements of the students as well as teachers. Adequate and up-to-date learning resources are essential ingredients of academic growth. More books of latest publications may be added to the existing stock.
The institution may think of formal linkages with centres of excellence, industry and financial institutions for mutual benefits .
The existing studentsâ€™ feed mechanism may be utilised for further follow up actions.
*Outreach programmes of the College need to be expanded to enhance the reputation of the institution further in the rural area.
*Establishment of a good computer lab with LAN and internet facilities are recommended to strengthen the academic base of the institution.
*Office automation may be thought of.
*The library may be housed in a separate building with adequate facilities
*Considering the rich cultural background, the College may construct an auditorium with multi media facilities.
*Since 50 percent of the students population consists of girls students and many of them are coming from the international border areas the College may seek financial assistance from the UGC for constructing a womenâ€™s hostel.

GURU NANAK DEV UNIVERSITY AMRITSAR Vs SAVITAIn the High Court of Punjab and Haryana at Chandigarh
R.S.A.No. 3376 of 2008 (O and M)
Date of decision: 7.9.2009
Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar ......Appellant
HON'BLE MRS. JUSTICE SABINA
Mr.P.S.Khurana, Advocate, for the appellant.
Plaintiff Savita had filed a suit for recovery, which was decreed to the extent of Rs.20,000/- by the Civil Judge (Sr.Divn.), Gurdaspur vide judgment and decree dated 5.12.2003. In appeal, the said judgment and decree were upheld by the Additional District Judge (Adhoc), Fast Track Court, Gurdaspur, vide judgment and decree dated 25.5.2007. Hence, the present appeal by the defendant.
Brief facts of the case, as noticed by the lower appellate Court in para Nos. 2 and 3 of its judgment, are as under:-
2. The brief facts put up by the plaintiff/respondent before the learned lower Court are that she is a student of Government College, Gurdaspur
affiliated with Guru Nanak Dev University under registration No.94/SG/A/999 and was qualified to appeal in B.Sc.III (Medical Group).
Her name was declared by the college authorities to appear in the examination to be held in the month of April, 1997. She was allotted Roll
No.89412. She appeared in the examination as well as practicals and was confident to be successful. But when her result was declared on 13.6.1997, she was shown having compartment in Chemistry. When she received the detailed marks card, she came to know that she has obtained only 11 marks in the practical. She approached University authorities and then came to know that she has actually obtained 35 marks in practical but due to negligence of University authorities the marks were shown as 11. It was alleged that the plaintiff/ respondent was to appear in Post Graduation but she could not appear in the entrance test due to her compartment and therefore, she is entitled to damages of Rs.2 lacs.
3. Upon notice, the defendant/appellant filed written statement taking the preliminary objections, that the suit is not maintainable and it is bad for non joinder of necessary parties on merits, it was admitted that the plaintiff/respondent appeared in B.Sc.-III (Medical Group) and she was shown compartment in Chemistry practical with 11 marks and actually she had obtained 35 marks. It is stated that when this fact came to knowledge of University authorities, the result of the plaintiff/ respondent was revised by way of Notification No.82 dated 26.8.1997 and it was alleged that it was a clerical mistake for which the plaintiff/respondent is not entitled to any damages. It has been further pleaded that under the
Ordinance 6 Page 499 of G.N.D.U. Clander Vol. 1.2 part B of 1991, the candidate can seek admission to the higher class within 12 days from the date of declaration of result. It was also pleaded that copy of the Notification was given to the plaintiff/respondent personally and she could have obtained the admission. Defendant/appellant prayed for the dismissal of the suit.
On the pleadings of the parties, following issues were framed by the trial Court:-
1. Whether the plaintiff is entitled to recover Rs.2,00,000/- from the defendants as damages due to the deficiency service of the defendant? OPP
2. Whether the suit is not maintainable in the present form? OPD
3. Whether the suit is bad for non-joinder of necessary parties? OPD
4. Whether the plaintiff has got no cause of action? OPD
After hearing learned counsel for the appellant, I am of the opinion that the present appeal deserves to be dismissed.
Plaintiff Savita had filed a suit for damages on account of wrong declaration of her result by the defendant-University. Both the Courts below, after appreciating the evidence on record, have awarded Rs.20,000/- as damages to the plaintiff due to negligence on the part of the defendant-University. It has been observed by the learned Additional District Judge (Adhoc), Fast Track Court in the impugned judgment that in the written statement, defendant- University had specifically admitted that in Chemistry practical examination, result of the plaintiff was declared to the effect that she had obtained 11 marks instead of 35 marks and thus, she was shown to be having compartment in the said subject. Thereafter, the result of the plaintiff was corrected.
The case of the plaintiff was that she had suffered harassment due to the incorrect declaration of result by the defendant-University. DW-1 Gurbachan Singh Ghai admitted that result of the plaintiff was declared on 13.7.1997 as compartment in Chemistry. The entrance test for classes of B.Ed., M.Sc. etc. had been taken by the University in the end of July 1997. The plaintiff approached the University authorities and on enquiry, it was found that in fact, the plaintiff had obtained 35 marks in Chemistry practical instead of 11 marks and the mistake was rectified vide notification dated 26.8.1997. Thus, the plaintiff could not appear in the entrance test, which was held in July 1997 as the notification vide which her marks was corrected was issued in August, 1997.
In these circumstances, the Courts below had rightly allowed Rs.20,000/- towards damages to the plaintiff.
No substantial question of law arises in this regular second appeal. Accordingly, the same is dismissed.

PUNJB STATE ETC. .... RESPONDENT(S)
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA
Mr. GS Bal Advocate for the appellant.
AJAI LAMBA J.
This Regular Second Appeal has been filed against the concurrent findings of fact.
The plaintiff filed a suit for declaration to the effect that order under which defendant No.3 had been appointed as Peon was illegal and against Government instructions. As a consequential relief prayer for issuance of a mandatory injunction was made directing respondents No.1 and 2 i.e. Punjab State through Collector Gurdaspur and Principal Government College Gurdaspur to consider the plaintiff for appointment as Peon on regular basis against a vacant post.
The case set up by the plaintiff was that he had been serving as
a Cycle Shed Attendant and was being paid out of the Students' Fund. The post of Peon that fell vacant was advertised. Demand was also sent to the Employment Exchange Gurdaspur.
Defendant No.3 however had been appointed. The plaintiff claimed the right to appointment because he was serving as Cycle Shed Attendant for which he was being paid out of the
I have considered the issue arguments of the learned counsel
and have gone through the impugned judgments.
It has not been disputed by the learned counsel that the plaintiff appeared in the interview and was considered. The learned
counsel has also not been able to find fault with the finding that the instructions to the effect that the persons working may also be considered for the post would only be directory. Learned counsel has not been able to point out any illegality in the findings recorded by the courts below.
It has to be considered that compliance of Articles 14 and 16 of the Constitution of India is required. In such circumstances once it is found that the post was advertised and the names from Employment Exchange were also solicited and the appellant was also considered for the said post no illegality in the action of the respondent-defendants can be traced.
No substantial question of law arises for consideration.
The appeal is dismissed in limine.
