S D COLLEGE HOSHIARPUR Vs STATE OF PUNJAB and OTHERS Civil Writ Petition 6867 of 2009

IN THE HIGH COURT OF PUNJAB and HARYANA, CHANDIGARH


Date of Decision: May 06, 2009

S.D. College, Hoshiarpur .....PETITIONER(S)
VERSUS
State of Punjab and Others .....RESPONDENT(S)

CORAM:
HON'BLE MR. JUSTICE AJAI LAMBA

PRESENT: -
Mr. Rajesh K. Dadwal, Advocate, for the petitioner.

AJAI LAMBA, J (Oral)
Learned counsel contends that the petitioner is entitled to release of grant-in-aid.

The same, however, is not being released and therefore, the petitioner-College is not in a position to pay the salaries.

In this regard, learned counsel has relied on the decision dated 21.3.2009 of this Court in Civil Writ Petition No.4464 of 2009 titled ‘BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr vs. State of Punjab and Others’.

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 the grant-in-aid is required to be released in terms of judgment relied upon on behalf of the petitioner.

In the case of BLM Girls College, Arya Samaj, Nawanshahr (supra), this Court, while relying on judgment dated 18.12.2007 in C.W.P. No.14340 of 2006, titled `Arya College, Ludhiana Vs. State of Punjab and Others’ and decision dated 24.4.2008 rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.5393 of 2008, titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and Others’, has held:-

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgment rendered in Arya College’s
case (supra) and decision rendered in C.W.P. No.5393 of 2008, decided on 24.4.2008, in case titled ‘Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara vs. State of Punjab and others’, it is directed that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of 3 months after clearance of objections by the petitioner. So far as balance 15% of the amount of grant-in-aid is
concerned, the petitioner may submit separate representations to the respondents.

In Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra), the following has been held by the Division
Bench of this Court:-

Learned counsel for the petitioner has placed reliance on the judgments State of Maharashtra versus
Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, 1995(5) Supreme Court Cases 730, Government of A.P. and Others
versus G.V.K.Girls High School, 2000(8) Supreme Court Cases 370, and State of Haryana and others
versus Babita Yadav and Others, 2004(13) Supreme Court Cases 734, to contend that the paucity of funds or financial contributions cannot be taken a ground to deny the grant-in-aid to Government recognized private colleges while extending such facility to recognized private colleges by the State.

After hearing the learned counsel for the parties, we are of the considered view that the case of the petitioner is squarely covered by the decision in the State of Maharashtra versus Manubhai Pragali Vashi and Others, Government of A.P. and Others versus G.V.K.Girls High School and State of Haryana and
others versus Babita Yadav and Others (supra). The State Government cannot take up the ground that due to paucity of funds, it is unable to give grant-in-aid to the colleges.

In view of the above, we hold that the respondents shall pay 85% of the grant-in-aid as claimed by the
petitioner within a period of three months, after the clearance of the objections by the petitioner. The
petitioner shall try to clear all the objections raised by the State Government within a period of one month from today. As far as balance 10% of the amount of grant-in-aid case is concerned, the petitioner may submit a separate representation to the respondents. The respondents are also further directed to release the grant-in-aid to the petitioner in future also in time.

In another judgment dated 19.2.2008 rendered by a Division Bench of this Court 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’, similar view has been taken as in the case of Ramgaria College of Education, Phagwara (supra).

It has been brought out that State of Punjab filed a Special Leave Petition before the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India directed against the judgment rendered in Civil Writ Petition No.3191 of 2007. The Hon’ble Supreme Court of India while dealing with SLP No.15798 of 2008 dismissed the petition
on 8.12.2008 by passing the following order:-

Delay condoned.
We find no merit in this petition which is accordingly dismissed. However, two months time is granted to the petitioner State of Punjab to release the amount which is due and payable to the respondent College subject to removal of objections pointed by the High Court in the impugned order.

Considering the facts and circumstances of the case; in terms of judgments to which reference has been made hereinabove, 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 representations to the respondents.

Petition is allowed in the above terms.

Suggestions/Recommendations:

Computer Facilities in IT Lab may be used to start a few more Certificate/ Diploma Courses in Computer Sciences

Students, Staff and Supporting Staff may be given Computer Training by fixing a suitable short-term programme.

Steps may be taken for full computerisation of Office and Central library at the earliest.

Internet accessibility may be used by the students and staff members more effectively

More books may be added in all subjects, particularly in the subjects of Commerce, Economics and English Language.

Alumni association may be registered at the earliest. It can take active role by rendering financial help to improve existing infrastructure facilities and providing scholarships for deserving students.

Students' attendance can be computerised and made available to the Principal, Head of the Department and to Parents.

The In-House Examination System may adopt coding system for evaluation of the answer sheets.

A coaching centre may be set up to coach students and to train them to appear in various competitive examinations.

A well equipped English Language Laboratory will be useful to train students in communication skills

The College may Focus on the evaluation of performance appraisal of all teachers by adopting a suitable mechanism

For the benefit of women students Certificate Courses in Music, Fine Arts and Home Science could be introduced.

Post-Graduate Programmes for upward mobility in the existing subjects may be started by the college.

There is a need to increase relevant vocational courses such as Tax Planning, Export Documentation and Functional English.

Faculty members should become members of professional bodies and they should attend regularly seminars/conferences for their respective subjects by using the UGC funds.

It would be in the academic interest of the college to organise yearly seminars, conferences and workshops.

The management may help the needy students by way of concession in tuition fee and issuing them text-books free of cost

Collecting feedback from students in a scientific way and analysing them for improving for working of the institution may be initiated.

Since the students come from adjoining areas, girls hostel is the need of the hour. College may apply to UGC for financial assistance.

The Management, Administration and College Faculty may draw a plan of action for research activity. For this, Research Advisory Committee may be constituted.

The college may approach the Sports Authority of India for financing the college to develop Sports infrastructure facilities.

Career Counselling and Guidance Cell may be strengthened in the interest of students.

The College may attempt to develop a Distance Learning Centre of such institutions as IGNOU/ Guru Nanak Dev University, Amritsar.

For providing larger exposure to students in modern commercial trends and practices, the college may achieve this target by assigning projects, fieldwork and practical to the aspiring students.

The Peer Team Expresses its gratitude to the Management, Principal, Teachers, Students, Non-teaching Staff, Parents and Alumni for their co-operation, hospitality and facilities provided for smooth functioning of this exercise. The Peer Team places on record its deep sense of gratitude to all who have contributed in this endeavour and wishes that the college may thrive by leaps and bounds in the years to come.
