Media coverage of Nehru Memorial Government College, Mansa Punjab, Punjab
NAAC report of Nehru Memorial Government CollegeSECTION I
Nehru Memorial Government College was established in Mansa in the Punjab in July 1965. The College was initially started as a non-government coeducational institution by some public spirited local leaders, businessmen and educationists headed by Sh. Des Raj, then M.L.C., who later on became the Member of Punjab Public Service Commission and also the Health Minister of Punjab. They dreamed to make youth of this under-developed and backward area physically fit, mentally alert, morally upright and socially responsible by providing them quality education. The founders had a vision to propagate the lofty ideas which were so dear to Pt. Jawahar Lal Nehru, the architect of modern India. The main objective of the institution is to impart quality higher education mainly to the sons of the soil. The institution is doing efforts to raise standard of teaching through value based education. The College tends to make special efforts for the educational empowerment of girls and weaker sections. It is a Government funded medium sized college as far as student strength and faculty are concerned. Though it is an urban college but 60% of the students come from nearby rural areas. The College is located in a pollution free environment far from the city. A large area of the campus is under forest cover. The College is affiliated to Punjabi University, Patiala.
It was recognised by UGC under its sections 2(f) and 12b in 1966. The State Government permitted this college to run Postgraduate course (M.A. Political Science) from the session 1975. The College has a large campus area of 30 acres. The College runs only 04 programmes of which 03 are Undergraduate (UG) and 01 is PG. The College offers different courses in Arts, Science and Commerce faculties through its 11 Departments. The Arts faculty has the departments of English, Hindi, Punjabi, History, Economics, Political Science, Mathematics and Physical Education. The Science faculty has the departments of Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics. The Commerce faculty is treated as a single department.
There are 24 (11 female) teachers including the 06 part time teachers and 10 guest faculty. In all only 03 have Ph.D. degree and another 06 hold the M.Phil. degree. The student strength of the College is 1423 (175girls) in UG and 36 (07 girls) in PG levels. There are 13 administrative and 03 technical staff in the College. The annual budget of the College for the year 2005-2006 is Rs. 72 lakhs and 76 thousand 650 only. The unit cost of education including salary is Rs 4987.42. The temporal plan for academic work in the College is annual system in UG classes but semester system in PG classes. The teachers are recruited by the government on the recommendation of the Punjab State Public Service Commission. The non-teaching employees are also appointed by the Government.
The College has some support services such as Central library, Computer center, Gymnasium, Sports facilities, Canteen, and Grievance redressal cell. Some of its students have qualified UGC-CSIR (NET), UGC (SLET), GATE, and allied examinations in last five years.
The College has 264 working days out of which 180 are teaching days. The working days of the library are 264. The drop out rate of students at UG and PG levels are 15% and 12% respectively. The success rate of the students on the other hand in UG and PG levels are 98% and 90% respectively.
The central library has 31333 books and subscribes to 52 national journals/periodicals. There are 09 computers in the College.
The College has some National linkages also. Some of its teachers have attended National level Seminars/Symposia. One teacher in English and another in Punjabi have acted as resource persons and delivered the invited lectures. Five of its teachers have been honoured with awards at district or state level.
Apart from the Govt. grants, the College has been able to raise about Rs five lakhs through the Parent Teacher Association and the Alumni Association. Also Rs six lakhs from MP LAD fund were obtained for open air theatre and garden development. Grants of the tune of eighteen lakhs from other sources were also generated.
The College volunteered to be assessed by NAAC, Bangalore and sent its Self Study Report (SSR) to NAAC on June 2004. The NAAC constituted a Peer Team with Prof. L.S. Rathore, Former Vice-Chancellor, Jai Narain Vyas University, Jodhpur, Rajasthan as its Chairman, Prof. A. K. Indrayan, Department of Chemistry, Ex Dean, Faculty of Science, Gurukula Kangri University, Hardwar, Uttaranchal as its Member-Coordinator and Dr. U.C. Jain, Principal, Govt. PG College, Narsingpur, Madhya Pradesh as its Member. The Peer Team visited the College from 26th and 27th October, 2005. During the visit after interacting with all sections of the College community, visiting its existing infrastructure and going through the office-documents the Peer Team would like to record the following observations depending on criteria wise inputs identified by NAAC.
Criterion Wise Inputs
Criterion I: Curricular Aspects
The academic programmes run by the College are routine and not the diversified. The College provides teaching opportunities leading to the award of UG and PG degrees of Punjabi University, Patiala, Punjab. The College is at present offering only 03 courses in UG and 01 course in PG (M.A. Political Science). In B.Sc. there is one triple major course (Physics, Chemistry, Maths) In B.A. three subjects are to be selected out of the available options of Punjabi, Political Science, Physical Education, Economics, History, Hindi and Mathematics. In B.Com. there are seven papers each year. Besides these the Punjabi and English are compulsory subjects.
The ratio of knowledge : skill components in the programme options is 70:30. The programmes offered to the students are not flexible enough so far as time frame and elective options are concerned. The College follows the syllabi prescribed by the University. The University updates and reviews the syllabi as and when necessary. Some of its teachers are members of Board of Studies of the University.
Criterion II: Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
The College admits students in different subjects on the basis of academic records. The B.A. Ist year Physical Education students are selected by giving a due weightage to the physical fitness. There are reservation of seats for SC/ST/BC/OBC students as per Punjab Government rules.
The College has provision for assessing students knowledge and skills for a particular programme during their period of learning through the periodical tests.
The teachers of the College are encouraged to make teaching plans so that the same may be available before the beginning of the academic session. The syllabi are unitised.
The College arranges practical and tutorial classes to supplement lecture method of teaching. The College is yet to build facilities for preparation of audio-visual and other teaching aids. The total working days in the College are 264 while 180 are teaching days. The teaching load of a teacher is 18 hours per week. Almost 40% of the classes taught are taken by full-time teachers. The ratio of Teaching:Non-teaching staff is about 3:2. The College has qualified teachers. Out of the total strength of 24 teachers 03 hold Ph.D. degree and another 06 hold M.Phil. degree. A sad part is that many of the sanctioned posts of teachers are not filled by the Government, probably because of financial constraint. But it is much affecting the day to day class room teaching. The strength of administrative and technical staff in the College are 13 and 03 respectively.
The students are communicated at the commencement of the academic session about their evaluation methods. The College monitors the overall performance of the students through periodical assessment.
The teachers are appointed by the College on the recommendation of Punjab Public Service Commission. The Government of Punjab creates new teaching posts on the requisition of the Principal and recommendation of the university considering enhanced work- load of the subjects. However, the part time teachers are appointed by the Principal on the recommendation of selection committee and paid from the PTA fund.
Some of its teachers are members of Board of Studies (Punjabi University) in their respective subjects.
The College evaluates the performance of teachers by comparing their results of classes with the University results. Principal sends their report of work and conduct.
The College has some National linkages also. Five teachers have attended National level Seminars/Symposia in last three years. One teacher in English and another in Punjabi have acted as resource persons and delivered the invited lectures. Four teachers have been honoured at District level/State level.
Last year the English Literary Society and History Association jointly have organised a seminar on Sri Guru Granth Sahib. A seminar pertaining to teaching methods was organized by the planning forum. The Punjabi Sahit Sabha and Commerce Association have also organized a seminar. Many extension lectures were also organized by the College. The educational tours are also arranged.
Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
There are only three teachers in the College who have Ph.D. degree. None of them is engaged in active research though the College supports research activities of the teachers by providing them with study leave and adjustment in teaching schedules. However, one teacher in Department of Political Science is persuing research for his Ph.D. degree. Only four teachers, in the past, have a few research publications to their credit. Certain articles have also been published. Four of the teachers have published books also.
Because of being an under-graduate college, research culture, in fact, does not exist. No research project, minor or major, has so far been completed, neither any is in the pipeline.
The College has designated a person for extension activities with additional charge. The College conducts extension activities like health & hygiene awareness, social work, adult education and literacy programme, and AIDS Programmes through its NSS and NCC units. The first aid programme also exists. The students are involved in developing the traffic awareness also. The College has organised certain outreach programmes such as environment awareness and blood donation camp by NCC and NSS. Some of these programmes were organized in collaboration of Lions club, Rotary club and State Bank of Patiala. The Commerce Association has organized a free dental care camp in the College. Though the NSS students have done a tremendous work in and around the campus of the College, their work in the nearby adopted villages is yet to be strengthened. The College and its teachers were specially recognized by an award by the State Government for organizing the largest blood donation camp in rural area.
Again, because of the UG classes only, the teachers of the College are not involved in any consultancy work. There is no placement cell either.
Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The College is situated in an urban area with a 30 acres campus. The College has some infrastructure facilities conducive to academic and administrative growth. An impressive new building, composed of two blocks, has come up. The College building houses 03 lecture theatres, 16 class rooms and 06 laboratories. There is also an administrative block, a library hall and a separate Gymnasium. A staff room and separate common rooms for boys and girls exist.
The College has an Advisory Committee for its library. The library of the College is yet to develop internet and computer facilities. However, a photostat machine is available in the office. A UGC Network Resource Centre with Internet facility is functional in a central place. The total working days of the library are 264. It remains open on all week days from 10 am to 5 pm. The library has 31333 books and 52 national journals/periodicals. Book bank facility is available. Computerisation is in progress. It also has an open book system.
The Computer center has at present only seven computers. However, the College has two more computers- one in Principalâ€™s office and other in library. Over Head Projectors and a Slide Projector are available in the College. However, their use in teaching is to be encouraged. Intercom facility exists.
The Students are provided with First Aid facilities only in the health care unit. A health center is yet to be opened.
The College has its own tube-well for irrigation that helps in keeping the campus green.
The College has good sports facilities. Football, Hockey, Cricket, Volleyball, Basketball, Kho kho and Kabaddi grounds exist and also an athletic track. The existing indoor games facilities are Carom, Badminton, Chess and Table Tennis. Weight lifting, Boxing and fencing facilities also exist. Outstanding sports persons are honoured and awarded prizes. 2% seats are reserved for sports persons. Students in Kho kho and Basketball have represented at inter-university and state levels. The College hosted the inter-university Kho kho zonal tournament in 2003. In the same year the College also hosted the Punjabi University Zonal Youth Festival. The College won the overall championship.
The College does not have the Hostel facilities.
Criterion V: Student Support and Progression
About 86% of the students appear in the qualifying examinations. The drop out rate of student is 15% at UG and 12% at PG level. The progression of students to higher education is approximately 35%. The College publishes its prospectus annually. It contains details of courses, its duration and fee structure.
The College arranges award of full/half free studentship and monetary assistance from Poor Boys Fund for poor students. Some need cum merit scholarships are also given. There is also provision for SC/ST/OBC students to get stipend from the welfare department of Punjab Government. The teachers offer personal counselling to students to help them choose appropriate courses of study.
The College has an Alumni Association with the name â€œOld Studentsâ€™ Associationâ€ which has many all-round activities to its credit. Many of its alumni are holding good administrative posts in central and state governments. Some are reputed Industrialists and some are reputed Medical Practioners, Engineers, Advocates, Defence Personnels, Police officers, Magistrates, and Professors. Some are holding good political positions as well.
The College provides recreational/leisure facilities to students through indoor and outdoor games, debate clubs and cultural programmes including dance and music competitions. The College brings out an annual magazine â€˜The Idealâ€™ through which the students and teachers get an opportunity to express themselves and develop the writing skills.
There is one NCC unit in the College having 106 cadets. Five NCC cadets were selected for Pre-RD Camp. A cadet was selected for All India Thal Sena Camp. Many NCC cadets have joined Military services and many have been selected in State Police Service. 14 NCC cadets have passed C-Certificate and 20 B-Certificate examinations last year. The teacher NCC officer has also been honoured for his contribution. The NSS has two units. They have adopted two villages in the nearby areas but the commmendable work is yet to start. However they have carried out certain hygiene awareness programmes in the surrounding rural population. They have also participated in Pulse polio drive. Efforts to develop awareness against female foeticide deserve appreciation.
