Media coverage of SBS Govt College, Kotkapura Punjab, Punjab

NAAC report of Shahid Bhagat Singh Government College

Shaheed Bhagat Singh Government College, Kotkapura, Punjab, affiliated to Punjabi University, Patiala was established in July 1982 by the Municipal Council, Kotkapura. The College was established with the motto to 'provide education to all classes of society, especially the downtrodden and the economically and socially backward sections particularly in rural areas in the vicinity of Kotkapura'. The institution is named after the great martyr of India, Bhagat Singh. The College is a co-educational institution. Government of Punjab took over the college in May 1997 and in September 2000 the college was recognized by the UGC under Section 12(B) and 2(f) of the UGC Act, 1956.

The College campus is spread over an area of 17 acres. The College offers Undergraduate courses in Arts and Commerce. There are 28 permanent and four part-time teachers, of which eight are Ph.D. and 11 M.Phil. Degree holders out of 37 sanctioned posts. There are 11 non-teaching staff including 3 female staff. The student strength is 1175 including 206 girl students on roll. The students are largely from the town and from the nearby rural areas. The unit cost of education of the college is Rs. 7271/-.

Shaheed Bhagat Singh Government College, Kotkapura, Punjab, volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore and submitted a Self-Study Report in November 2003. NAAC constituted a Peer Team to visit the College and validate the Self-Study Report. The Peer Team comprised Prof. L. N. Dahiya, Former Pro- Vice-Chancellor, M.D. University, Rohtak, as Chairman, and Dr. R.K.Pande, Principal, DBS PG College, Dehra Dun, Uttaranchal, and Dr.Sadasiba Pradhan, Professor of History, Sambalpur University, Orissa as Members. The Peer Team visited this institution on 24th and 25th February 2004. Dr. K. N. Madhusudanan Pillai, Academic Consultant, NAAC efficiently co-ordinated the Peer Team visit.

The Peer Team studied and analysed the Self-Study Report submitted by the College. During the two-days visit, the Team went through all relevant documents, visited various departments and facilities and interacted with various constituents of the institution. The visit enabled the team to have good on-site observation of the academic, co-curricular, extra-curricular, sports and various support services like Library, Canteen, Vehicle stand, NCC, and NSS. The Team interacted with the Principal, Faculty, Non-teaching staff, Students, Parents and Alumni of the College. Based on the above exercise and keeping in view the seven criteria identified by the NAAC, the Peer Team has taken up the assessment and accreditation of the institution under various criteria.

Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
As an affiliated institution of Punjabi University, Patiala, the College has to follow the syllabi, curricula, and examination pattern prescribed by the University. However, two teachers of the college serve as members of Board of Studies of the University. The curricula of the University are neither modularly structured nor interdisciplinary in approach. The regulation of the university does not have provision for flexibility in time frame and horizontal mobility. The College offers Three Years Degree courses in Arts and Commerce. The subject options available in the college for students in Arts faculty are English, Punjabi, Hindi, Economics, History, Political Science, Public Administration, Geography, Philosophy, Psychology, Mathematics, Home Science, Physical Education, Music (vocal), and Music (Instrumental). There is a declining trend in students strength in Commerce in recent years.
The University is yet to modify its curriculum in accordance with the UGC syllabus guidelines. It is necessary to obtain feed back from the students in a structured format to understand the individual teacher's performance and teaching learning process of the institution.

Criterion II: Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The college admits students on merit, based on the record of performance of the student in previous examination. The college follow annual system of examination as stipulated by the university. The details about the examinations, the method of evaluation etc. are communicated to the students through the college prospectus and academic calendar. Besides the University Examinations, College conducts monthly tests and mid-term examination. The answer scripts are shown to the students. The Heads of the Departments monitor the proper execution of the academic programmes. At the end of the year, the college informs the students and their guardians about the academic progress and performance of the students. Students' performance in annual examinations is better as compared to the similar percentage of the University results.

The teaching is largely based on lecture method, sometimes supplemented by group discussion, seminars, study tours and field works. Teaching may be made more participatory and interesting with the modern teaching aids such as OHP, CD, LCD, slide projectors and Internet. The college observes 265 working days, of which 180 days are devoted to teaching.

Recruitment of teachers are made by the State Government through the State Public Service Commission. Good number of teachers have participated in UGC Refresher courses in accordance with UGC requirements.

However, there is a need to encourage teachers to regularly attend Seminars, Conferences, Workshops and to undertake research projects to keep themselves updated with the latest developments in the field of their teaching and research. Similarly non research degree holder teachers may be encouraged to pursue research leading to M.Phil and Ph.D.

Since the students are deficient in English, bridge/remedial class in 'Functional English' and 'Communicative English' may be offered. Similarly the college may assert for some career oriented programmes through UGC funding.

The Principal writes the Annual confidential report on the work, conduct and performance of the faculty in teaching, research and extension, which is being communicated to the Higher authorities for needful action.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The main emphasis of the College is on teaching. Research culture is yet to develop. As pointed out earlier, seven teachers have Ph.D. and 11 have M.Phil. Degrees, and the rest 10 have Masters as their highest qualification. A few teachers have participated in Seminars and written popular articles.

The college may keep proper liaison with the UGC Regional office and the University to explore the funding possibilities in various research activities.

The College is involved in some extension activities through its NCC and NSS units. The teachers of the college do take part in various extension activities along with students. Departments of Music, Home Science, Physical Education, Geography and Commerce have all potential to go for consultancy services. Teachers provide counseling on job opportunities and competitive examinations to the students of the College on a personal basis in a limited manner.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college possesses a sprawling campus of 17 acres. The layout of the campus is esthetically planned. It is maintained clean and hygiene. The College has reasonable infrastructure. The main building of the college accommodates Administrative unit, Principal' office, Library, Lecture halls, Conference hall, Teachers and Girls common room, and toilets. Other facilities include cycle stand, vehicle-parking shed, staff quarters. A 15 HP generator, bore well and a large overhead water storage tank ensures uninterrupted supply of water and electricity A Maintenance Committee and the Govt. Public Works Department is responsible for the construction activities and repair of the buildings. Parent Teacher Association (PTA) and Amalgamated Fund (AF) funds are utilized for maintenance and expansion of infrastructure. The classrooms are spacious with adequate furniture.

There is a Library Committee constituted in accordance with the University norm. Library has a collection of 5901 books. There is also a Book Bank. The college purchased 325 books worth Rs. 14,100/- and journals worth Rs. 9,300/- in the last two years. The Library needs to be strengthened by procuring more books of the latest edition and housing the library in a specious building. The library may be computerized with facility of Internet for the use of students and teachers. Reprographic facilities may also be provided.

The college has three Computers, The proposed computer center needs to be started at the earliest providing sufficient systems with LAN and Internet facilities.

The college has a very good stadium with a 400 mtrs. track for athletics, football and Hockey playgrounds. The College has facilities for outdoor games like Basketball, Badminton, Cricket, Handball and Volleyball and also facilities for indoor games like Table Tennis, Carrom, etc. The College has represented in various sports activities at zonal, inter-collegiate and Inter-University levels. Basketball has brought laurel for the College at State and National level. The College Basketball players represented in Asian Games.

At present there is no hostel for the students. There is a demand from the students for hostel facilities, which may be extended so that the girls and boys can utilize the infrastructure facilities even after the classes are over.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
The percentage of students completing the 1st year degree program is only half the admitted strength. The drop out rate is about ten percent. The overall pass percentage of the college in the University examinations in the final year exceeds 90 percent. The College has many student support programmes like Scholarships and free-studentships. There are a number of scholarships/free-studentships available from State and Central Governments for S.C./S.T. students.

The College publishes its updated prospectus annually, which gives information on admission procedures, program options, fee structure, library, examination and other facilities and amenities available in the institution. Almost all the teachers participate in the academic and personal counseling of students. Students progression for employment and further study could not be ascertained due to paucity of record.

The recently formed Alumni Association may be made more vibrant to promote the general welfare of the students and the institution. The Alumni during the interaction with the Peer Team expressed their willingness to extend all help and cooperation for the development of the institution. Since a good number of old students of the College are occupying prominent positions in different walks of life and also working abroad, their potential may be explored in the interest of the College. The College has instituted several prizes and awards to recognize the students for outstanding performance in cultural activities, sports, and University examinations.

Criterion VI: Organization and Management
The Principal runs day-to-day administration of the institution. He is assisted by a host of committees and the Heads of Departments. The College Council consisting of five senior most members of the teaching faculty assists him in running the institution. The Heads of the Departments monitor the teaching programmes. Various Committees constituted by the Principal look after academic, cultural, and extra-curricular activities. The principal enjoys the confidence and cooperation of his colleagues in running the college. The students are disciplined and well mannered.

Since it is a Government College the State Government funds the College and the finance is managed as per the State government rules. PTA funds are utilized for infrastructural development. As the college has already been recognized under 2 (f) serious efforts needs to be made by the college to get the plan allocation grants under different schemes and heads.
