CC No. 360 of 2006

ORDER
Present Dr. Reet Mahinder Singh, Complainant in person and
Sh. Neeraj Dutt, Clerk on behalf of the Public Information Officer, SCD Government College, Ludhiana on behalf of the Respondent.

Our order of 28.08.06 clearly spells out that the information demanded by the Complainant relates only to the deemed contribution that would have been made by the Respondent had the Complainant remained in service. There is no liability what so ever of the Respondent or of the State Government. On the last date of hearing, it was directed that the Complainant would visit the office of the Public Information Officer and both of them would mutually determine the exact amount of employer’s pension contribution and leave salary contribution which would have been payable for the period between 20.11.1973 and 11.02.1980 had the Complainant remained in service of the Respondent College.

Complainant states that in accordance with the orders of the Commission dated 28.08.06, he visited the office of the Respondent and the details of the deemed value of the contribution had been worked out. The Respondent sent these calculations to the Accountant General, Punjab for confirmation/verification. The office of the Accountant General, Punjab, however, returned the letter/calculations in original with the remark “Leave salary and pension contribution is payable to those Punjab Govt. employees who go on deputation to any other Board or Corporation”. The Complainant submits that this is not the issue in question at all. Complainant is not interested in drawing any benefits or entitlement from the Government. All that he is interested in knowing is that what would be the amount of employer’s pension contribution and leave salary contribution for the period he served in the Respondent institution had he not resigned.

Respondent produces before us a copy of his letter to the Accountant General, Punjab. From this letter it is clear that the proposal of the Respondent is
ambiguous and it is made to appear as if the Complainant is demanding certain pensionary benefits. Presumably, this is why the Accountant General, Punjab responded in the manner that he has done.
The Accountant General, Punjab is admittedly not an authority amenable to the jurisdiction of the State Information Commission, since the Accountant General is an office of the Government of India. In case the Complainant wishes, he is free to approach the Accountant General directly for any verification. The role of the Public Information Officer of Government College, Ludhiana is to supply the information demanded by the Complainant. In fact, according to the Complainant, there was no dispute in respect of the calculations that were made when he visited the office of the Respondent.

The appropriate course now seems to be that the Respondent should supply to the Complainant duly authenticated details of the calculations which have already been finalized. It is for the Complainant to use this information in whatever manner he wishes.

It would serve the ends of justice if these calculations which have been sent to the Accountant General, Punjab be countersigned by the Public Information Officer or the Principal, Government College, Ludhiana.

The Complainant is prepared to submit an affidavit to the Principal, Govt. College, Ludhiana to the effect:-

a) That the supply of figures as calculated would have no financial implication in so far as the Government College or the Government is concerned.
b) That the information is required solely for the purpose of supporting his case before the Punjab University, Chandigarh for fixation of pension.
To come up for confirmation of compliance on 12.12.2006. Copies of the order be sent to both the parties.

ORDER
Present
Sh. Reet Mahinder Singh, Complainant in person
Sh. Rajdeep Singh Gill, Lecturer, SCD Government College, Ludhiana on behalf of the Respondent.

The facts of the case are that the Complainant Dr. Reet Mahinder Singh was a Senior Lecturer in Physical Education in the SCD Government College, Ludhiana from 20.11.1973 to 11.02.1980. In 1980 he resigned and joined the Panjab University. At the time he joined the Panjab University, the University did not have any scheme for pensionary benefit for teachers. The Panjab University has now started a scheme of pension for teachers who have a certain length of qualifying service. In order that the Complainant can obtain benefit of pension from the University, the period of his service in the Government College has to be counted. Admittedly, no contribution towards pensionary benefits was made by the College when the Complainant was serving there. The Complainant is, however, prepared to make the equivalent contribution from his own pocket and thereby entitle himself to pensionary benefits from the Panjab University, as per rules.
This is an unusual case where the Complainant has not demanded any financial benefits from the public authority, but has merely sought information on what the public authority would have paid in case the Complainant had not resigned from service.
There is no conflict of interest between the Complainant and the Respondent. The Respondent merely states before us that his staff in the College may not be technically equipped to appreciate the financial implications and workout the required calculations in this unusual case. The Respondent is prepared to make the calculations in consultation with the Complainant and to obtain a confirmation/verification of these calculations from the office of the Auditor General of Punjab, which is the final authority in such matters.
Both parties agree in our presence to sit together in the College office for this exercise. The Respondent would thereafter make a reference to the office of the Auditor General of Punjab.
The above proposition is practical and workable and also within the parameters emerging from the Right to Information Act, 2005. The reference to Auditor General’s office may be made immediately and reply from the Auditor General’s office be delivered to the Complainant as soon as it is received.

To come up for confirmation of compliance on 24.10.2006. Copies of the order be sent to both the parties.

NAAC report of Satish Chand Dhawan Government College (SCD)

Section II -Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion-I –Curricular Aspects
The college has a cluster of buildings housing administration office, library, canteen, various departments, laboratories, auditorium, open air theatre, class IV staff quarters, principal s residence, hostels for boys and girls and sprawling play grounds.

The college volunteered for institutional accreditation by National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) Bangalore. A self study report for this purpose was prepared and submitted in April 2003. The Peer Team visited the college on December 3 and 4, 2003 to assess the institution. The team consisted of Dr. K.L. Johar, former Vice-Chancellor, Guru Jumbeshwar University Hissar, Haryana as chairman, Dr. Desh Bandhu, Principal S.D. College, Ambala Cantt., Haryana Sh. Shivanand Chindha Hale, Principal Arts Science and Commerce College Nampur district Nashik, Maharashtra as members. The peer team visit was coordinated by Dr. G.Srinivas, Deputy Adviser, NAAC. The team visited various departments, support services and interacted with Director Public Instructions Punjab, the principal, students, teachers and non-teaching staff, alumni and parents of college. The team made an in-depth analysis of the functioning and performance after visiting different departments and examining the documentary evidence relating to administration and academic governance. The college was assessed on the basis of seven-point criteria of the NAAC and criterion-wise evaluative remarks are detailed in the following sections:

Section II -Criterion-wise Analysis
Criterion-I –Curricular Aspects
The courses offered by the college include 3 year BA/B.Sc./B.Com. programmes and 2 year Postgraduate programmes in Commerce, Hindi, English, Economics, Mathematics, Geography and Punjabi. The Periodic review of the goals and objectives set forth are reflected in starting various programmes at different periods of time. For example at undergraduate level, the college has started Economics, Geography, History, Sociology, Political Science, Psychology, Music, Physical Education, English, Punjabi, Hindi, Public Administration and Sanskrit in the Arts stream. Similarly in the science faculty the college offers Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology and Mathematics. It has now also started Industrial Microbiology under UGC programme of vocational courses. The college also offers Honours courses in BA.II and BA III in the subjects of Hindi, English, Economics, History, Political Science, Mathematics and Commerce. Thus the college offers variety of programme options under the faculty of Arts, Commerce and Science. It will be appreciated, if the college initiates steps to introduce self financing, market friendly job oriented courses. This will not only augment the college resources, it will also help the student clientele to get gainful employment after the completion of their studies.

The curricular contents are based on the structure as formulated by the affiliating university. But it is a matter of satisfaction that many members of the staff are represented on Board of Studies in different subjects, the Academic Council and in the Senate and they put forth their point of view with regard to the formulation of the courses of study. Steps need to be formalized for interaction to get feedback from different sections of the college community and other stake holders on continual basis. But it is noted that the academic programmes of college have no flexibility due to constraints stipulated by the affiliating system. It takes almost one year to introduce a new programme. The college has not introduced any new subject during the last three years past.

Criterion II –Teaching, Learning and Evaluation
The college makes admissions on the basis of the academic record of the students. Oral tests are conducted during the lectures to determine the aptitude of the students. Advanced learners are identified for special coaching to improve college results qualitatively. Similarly slow and weak learners are singled out for extra coaching to improve the results quantitatively.

The college supplements the conventional chalk and talk method through the use of OHP, slide projectors, models and charts. The pedagogical methods need to be modernized. The possibility of initiating the centralized preparation of audio-visual programmes may be explored. Similarly with the advent of new technology, the computer aided learning processes may be introduced.

It is to be noted that the members of the faculty unitize the syllabi. Academic planning is thoroughly discussed by the various departments. The methods of evaluation are made known to the students in the beginning through the college prospectus, notice boards and through communication in the class rooms.

The recruitment of the teachers is made by Punjab Public Service Commission through open advertisement observing UGC and govt. norms. However college authorities have freedom to appoint lecturers on temporary basis. The payment to such teachers is made on the basis of number of hours taught by them from the funds of PTA. The NAAC team feels that more appointments need to be made on permanent basis so that the teachers can have a sense of belonging to the institution. This will help motivate the teachers to take additional academic initiatives. This should be possible in a industrial city like Ludhiana, where MOUs can be signed with various industrial units in mutual interest. Efforts should be made to establish college – industry linkages although students are sent for on job training to various industrial units during summer vacation.

Performance of the teachers appraisal is through ACRs on the basis of the university results, interest in curricular activities and in the orgnization of various functions in the college. But it will be appreciated if the college teacher fill up the UGC sponsored self-appraisal proforma on yearly basis.

The college has 180 teaching days in a year. The faculty is experienced with a flair for teaching. 95 members of staff are permanent and 32 are on temporary basis. As many as 33 teachers hold Ph.D. degrees, 27 hold M.Phil degrees and the remaining are post graduate. 32 teachers work on temporary basis. Ratio of full time teachers to part time teachers 3:1 and ratio of teaching to non teaching staff is 1:1. About 80% of the total work load is being taken by permanent staff. The payment to the temporary teachers is made out of the fund of Parents Teachers Association. It is noted that the teachers are sent to attend seminars and workshops. In the last two years 20 teachers attended national level seminars/workshops and three of them attends a seminar of international level. Many teachers worked as resource persons and others were allowed to attend orientation/refresher courses. But it will be appreciated if the members of the faculty are allowed academic duty leave and also given financial support for attending such programmes. This will surely expose the faculty to latest trends in the field of education and the teacher will return with updated knowledge which will eventually help the students.

The Peer team appreciates the starting of Evening shift for in-service people in the college. This will surely help those not in a position to attend morning classes on regular basis and help in their academic growth.

How ever it will be a feather in the cap of this premier institution to take to new methods of technology in the teaching learning process.

Section III –Overall Analysis
SCD Govt. College is located in an industrial city with mostly conventional programmes of studies in the streams of Arts, Commerce and Science at undergraduate level as well as postgraduate level. One vocational course of Industrial Microbiology is also being offered by the college. To make optimum use of the infrastructure and also to meet societal aspirations for higher education an Evening shift for in-service students is run in the college in the arts stream. The faculty is committed and the principal is forward looking. They are doing their best within the constrains of the affiliating system and the State Government.

The college needs to develop culture for research orientation. Although quite a large number of permanent faculty members are Ph.D. and M.Phil. very few of them are continuing with their research activities. 3 teachers are doing research work for Ph.D. but there is no funding either by the college or by any external agency. A research coordinator may be appointed/assigned to accentuate research activities in the college which will help to develop academic infrastructure .Research activities will also have spill over impact on the quality of teaching.

The college NSS and NCC units are doing good work. The sportspersons have brought laurels to the college in various games at university, national and international level.

Prof Bhupinder Singh Parihar booked for molestation

Ludhiana, March 26, 2010
A senior professor of the department of English of SCD Government College, an Urdu poet and a recipient of State Award, Prof Bhupinder Singh Parihar, has been booked for allegedly abducting and molesting a five-year-old girl at Flower Dale Enclave here today.

The incident took place this morning when the girl, daughter of a Nepalese couple who live in the neighbourhood of the professor, went missing while playing outside her house at Madhuban Enclave here.

After failing to locate her, the panic-stricken parents, along with other residents, started searching for her.

The victim's father, who works as a waiter in a hotel, alleged that someone told them that they had spotted a man in his mid-50s take the girl towards Flower Dale Enclave.

He alleged that when he reached the spot, he was shocked to find Parihar kissing the child.

Suhwinder Kaur, SHO of the PAU police station, stated that Parihar was in an inebriated condition.

It is learnt that the professor was manhandled before being handed over to the police.

The police has booked the accused under Sections 365 and 354 of the IPC for abducting and intending to outrage the modesty of a girl.

The police said the girl was safe and did not sustain any injury.

Neither the professor, nor anyone from his family was available for comments.

Principal Jasbir Kaur Makkar expressed shock

Ludhiana, March 26, 2010
The entire teaching fraternity was shocked following the arrest of senior professor BS Parihar in connection with a molestation case.

Some accused the professor of shameful conduct while the others termed the incident as part of the prevailing college politics which was getting worse each year.

Jasbir Kaur Makkar, principal of SCD Government College,said: 'I came to know about the incident from a professor. Tomorrow, we have a prize distribution function and today was its rehearsal. We were waiting for him, but he did not arrive. We sent him several reminders, but no one responded. It was in the evening that we came to know about the unfortunate incident.'

Expressing shock over the professor's arrest, a colleague said Parihar was nearing his retirement.

'He has ruined it all. He had earned a special place among Urdu poets of the state. It is a very sad incident. He has left a blot on the teaching fraternity,' he stated.

A senior professor of the department of English of the college raised doubt over the entire issue.

He alleged that it could be part of the ongoing mudslinging among professors.
