Faculty needs greater motivation, to take up minor research projects, as well as participation in confrences, seminar etc. so as to update their knowledge and skills.

Computerization of Library and Office may be inititated. Library staff may be trained in house for modern clasification system. More Text books may be added to the Library. The computer centre may provide the training for administrative and supportive staff.

The faculty should take initative in orgainising seminars and conferences and for obtaining the assistance of UGC, DST and other funding agencies.

Alumni Association may be registered at the earliest. It can take active role in developing infrastrural facilities and academic activities.

Student attendance and progress can be computerized and made available to the Principal and Parents. The teaching staff may devote more time with the students for academic and personal counselling. Guardian-Tutor system may be introduced in the College for effective communication with the parents.

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

The College may focus more in the evaluation of performance appraisal of all teachers by regular feed back mechanism.

The Career Guidance and Counselling Centre may be strengthened in the College. The centre may coach the students and prepare them for different competivtive examinations. Psychological counselling may be set up in the College by utilizing the services of Psychology teachers.

'Earn While You Learn' Scheme may be introduced for the benefit of students. e.g., Commerce students could give hands on experience of preparing IT returns for nominal amounts. Students may help to keep the library properly and also in computerisation.

Sh. S. P.Bansal, complainant in person.
Dr. R. M. Sharma, Principal, SPN College,Mukerian.


The respondent has made a written submission to the Court stating that the information asked for by the complainant was supplied to him vide his letter No. 8995 dated 23-5-2007 through speed post, but the same was returned with the remarks that the addressee has refused to take it. The envelope returned by the speed post authorities has been seen and it appears that the detailed address of the complainant had not been written on the envelope and therefore, it cannot be said with certainty that it was the complainant, who refused delivery thereof. The respondent has agreed that a mistake has committed but submits that it was inadvertent.

The information sent to the complainant on 23-5-2007 has been given to him in the Court today. He has gone through it and submits that the information which has been supplied is sketchy and incomplete. He also submits that the information has been supplied much later than the prescribed period of 30 days, and the respondent ,therefore, deserves to be penalised. I do not agree with the submissions made by the complainant. Taking into consideration the nature of the information asked for by the complainant, who is a lecturer in the College of which the respondent is the Principal, and the fact that most of the information asked for concerns third parties who are also employees of the College, I find that the reply given by the respondent is sufficient and to the point. Insofar as the delay in giving the response to the complainant is concerned, there is nothing to indicate that the delay was intentional and deliberate.

No further action is required to be taken in this case, which is disposed of.

AVINASH KUMAR ANAND Versus S P BANSAL ETC Crl Misc 18257 of 2007


Date of Decision: 17.9.2007.

Avinash Kumar Anand ....Petitioner.
S.P.Bansal etc. ...Respondents.

Hon'ble Mr. Justice Surya Kant.

Mr.Manohar Dadwal,Advocate for the petitioner.
Mr.Padam Kumar Jain,Advocate, for the respondents.

Prayer in this petition is for transfer of two complaints
(Annexure P1 and P2) titled as S.P.Bansal Vs. Avinash Kumar Anand, under Section 138 of the Negotiable instrument Act read with Section 420 IPC, pending in the Court of learned Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate, Samana to the Court at Dasuya District Hoshiarpur.

The petitioner is resident of village Sanyal, Tehsil Mukerian, District Hoshiarpur. Similarly, respondent No.1 is also teaching as a Lecturer in S.P.N College, Mukerian.

Prima-facie, it appears that the petitioner has duped not only the respondent No.1 but several other persons also, as six more such complaint cases are pending against him in the Court at Dasuya.

Two complaints in question, however, have been filed by
respondent No.1 through his son, namely, respondent No.2 at Samana.

Learned counsel for respondent no.1 fairly states that he would have no objection for the transfer of the complaints in question from Samana to the Court at Dasuya, however, he genuinely apprehends that the petitioner shall adopt delaying tactics and the respondent No.1 who is working as a lecturer in the college, would be in extreme hardship if he is required to seek leave and appear before the Court on each and every date of hearing.

After hearing learned counsel for the parties and taking into consideration the fact that the apprehension expressed by respondent no.1 have some substance, this petition is conditionally allowed and the complaints titled S.P. Bansal Vs. Avniash Kumar Anand (Annexure P1
and P2) pending in the Court of learned Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate, Samana are ordered to be transferred to the Court of learned Sub Divisional Judicial Magistrate, Dasuya, District Hoshiarpur, subject to the following conditions:

(i)Respondent No.1-complainant, if so desires, may apply and shall be granted exemption from personal appearance, however, subject to such conditions as may be imposed by the learned Judicial Magistrate ;

(ii)Both the parties shall not be granted more than three
opportunities each to lead their respective evidence ;

(iii)Learned SDJM shall make efforts to decide both the
complaints as early as possible and preferably within one

Application is allowed subject to all just exceptions.

COCP No.1627 of 2009
The grievance of the petitioner in this case is that despite the directions issued by this Court to release the grant-in-aid due to the petitioner within a period of three months vide order dated 16.4.2009 passed in CWP No.5603 of 2009, the respondents have failed to make the aforesaid payment.

Notice of motion.

At the asking of the Court, Mr. S.S. Sahu, Assistant Advocate General, Punjab, accepts notice on behalf of the respondents. Copy of the petition has been supplied to him.

In COCP No.1224 of 2009, titled Dalip Kumar v. D.K. Goyal, EO, which was decided on 20.7.2009, this Court was assured by the State of Punjab that the directions of this Court shall be complied with in letter and spirit and the undisputed amounts payable to the petitioners wherever directions have been issued, shall be made.

At this stage, without going into the merits of the averments made by the learned counsel for the petitioner and keeping in view the aforesaid assurance given by the State of Punjab, I deem it appropriate to direct the respondents to release the amount of grant in aid which is not in dispute, to the petitioners within two months from the date of receipt of certified copy of this order.

Disposed of.
