History of MGN College

After annexation of the Punjab in 1849, the Sikhs had to step down from the pedestal of their political glory. In the wake of this event, the invasion of the western culture and ideas that followed weaned the Sikhs from their social, moral and cultural traditions. All this, in itself, was a challenge to those who took pride in the Sikh ethos. Moreover, the D.A.V. movement by the Arya Samaj and the Aligarh movement challenged the Sikhs to wake up and do something to broaden the mental horizons of the younger generation. Education, they were convinced, was the best tool to effect desired transformation. As a result, a crop of khalsa schools and colleges sprang up at various places, courtesy, the Sri Guru Singh Sabha Unit. One such unit was formed at Montgomery now in Pakistan. Of its office bearers, Sardar Hukam Singh, the distinguished Speaker of the Lok sabha and later Governor, Rajasthan and Bhai Gobind Singh Pasricha - the founder architect of the whole complex of the Montgomery Guru Nanak institutions had been working as a team since 1922. From 1925 onwards, Late Sardar Gian Singh Rai joined them and the trio continued to work together for a long period to see their dreams come true.

Owing to unprecedented socio-political developments of 1942, it seemed for a while that Sri Guru Singh Sabha won't survive this shock. But with the collaboration of two major players Sardar Hukam Singh and Sardar Gian Singh Rai, Bhai Gobind Singh Pasricha reconstituted the old Guru Singh Sabha unit at Jalandhar, as was operative in Montgomery.

The first in the series of Montgomery Guru Nanak institutions, was MGN Girls Primary School near Adda Hoshiarpur, Jalandhar. This achievement was followed soon by establishing of two other schools - MGN Khalsa High school, Basti Bawa Khel, Jalandhar and MGN Khalsa High School at Jalandhar Cantt.

Soon after making MGN a name, elevating it to greater heights in the field of Education, Bhai Gobind Singh Pasricha breathed his last on November 25, 1972, leaving behind him a rich heritage. With the passing away of this creative genius, the old management was replaced by the Montgomery Guru Nanak Educational Trust, Jalandhar.

At present Sardar Gurinder Singh Narula is the chairman of this Trust and Sardar Jarnail Singh Pasricha the Silver Jubilian Hony. Secretary of this worthy organization and they have been doing a commendable job for more than 25 years.

Since then the college has made significant progress in terms of infrastructure facilities and academic upliftment besides adding M.Ed. courses in the year 1996-97 and getting some faculty members as Registered Guide for Ph.D. in 2001-2002.; The college also started a self - financing Post graduate Diploma in Computer Application ( PGDCA ) with special emphasis on Teacher Education. PGDCA could not sustain for reasons explained earlier in the report but the college is making some use of the computer lab for B.Ed. and M.Ed. students in meeting their curriculum requirement and also offers special course in Web Design for which the students are given 'Certificate of Merit'. The college provides free internet facilities to students and teachers. There is Xerox facility available on payment basis.

Pupil teachers go for teaching practice in two phases and besides delivering specified number of lesson observe lessons, of peers and participate in other school activities. The teaching practice is organized in 10 schools.

The faculty is relatively young and enthusiastic and seems keen learners The college has become
handicapped by the recent govt. notifications ( July 2005) for not filling the vacant posts. Recently two faculty positions fell vacant which unfortunately could not be filled up. The faculty participates in seminars and conferences and the young Principal is full of ideas who needs encouragement. Some of the faculty are guiding research and some others are conducting research for obtaining their Ph.D. degrees. Labs are by and large, properly equipped. There needs to be a little more awareness on the part of female students about the functions of women cell. NSS is recently revived and the Alumni Association revival is three years old. The peer team has high hopes from the Alumni Association for their Participation in the development of the Institution. Though I there seems not much scope for providing medical and other assistance, but the Trust gives tuition free education in its institution to wards of permanent and regular employees. Employees also get, though meager, a monthly medical allowance Most of the class IV staff are given quarters and are not charged for electricity and water consumption. The Campus Canteen is tastefully constructed and is adequate.

The management of the college is forward looking and ever ready to support the ideas emanating from the faculty. The management definitely non-interfering in academic matters of the college and having liberal views. The college publishes its Brochure and Magazine regularly.

The peer team also would like to offer a few suggestions for the consideration of the College and to Management:

*The college may take up the case of reducing the number of activities to be taken up by the B.Ed. students with the BOS as it seems impossible for a student to indulge seriously in all these activities. The performance in them also be assessed internally.

*ET Lab may further be strengthened and developed into a teaching lab of its own as the college would want to see the real impact of micro-teaching on students. Proper video feedback will make it possible.

*The college may also include speakers on Action Research / Research methodology in their extension lecturer programmes.

*The college very meticulously organizes practice teaching but there seems very little scope of interaction between the school incharges of teaching practice and the college of Education. It is suggested that the college may organise a Pre-Training Practice conference of Principals and School Incharges of Teaching Practice schools. This would help both in meeting the objective of giving school experience to pupil teachers. Moreover, the time schedule could also be finalized in this conference. Further at the end of the year, a feed back meeting with the school incharges may be organized and they should be felicitated at the annual function of the college. Weare sure this will develop a lasting relationship between schools and the college.

*The Trust may consider to build a small hostel for students particularly girls who come from outside Jalandhar. This may probably also encourage girls with rural background.

*The Girls' Common Room may be provided sufficient lockers keeping the number of girls enrolled in view.

*As regard the appraisal of teachers performance, the students' points of view may also be considered.

*A Scooter cum Cycle shed may be constructed.

*Though the college is developing a Research Cell, it would be advisable to have library also connected with internet and with other national libraries.

We wish the college success in all its endeavors for its own development and quality enhancement in teacher education in general.

The peer team is grateful to the Management, Principal and Staff of the Montgomery Guru Nanak College of Education, Jalandhar (Punjab) for their cooperation and support to the team in carrying out the task of on spot validation of the SSA and Assessment of the college. The team also wishes to place on record its appreciation for the hospitality provided by the College. We are also grateful to the Alumni Association for providing us relaxing moments by organizing a Cultural Evening on Sept 26.

KOMAL SHARMA Versus G N D U AND ORS CWP 4893 of 2008


Date of Decision:01.04.2008
Komal Sharma .....Petitioner
Guru Nanak Dev University Amritsar and others .....Respondents.


Ms.Jatinder Jit Kaur Advocate for the petitioner.
Mr.D.S.Patwalia Advocate for respondents No.1 to 3.

The petitioner who is appearing in the M.Ed. Examination in April 2007 is a regular student of M.G.N. College of Education Jalandhar for the Session 2006-07. She cleared all the papers except one paper i.e. “Paper-3 Educational Research and Statistics”. The petitioner applied for re-appear in the said paper.
Learned counsel for the petitioner submits that as per the Ordinance 9.2 of the Ordinances and Syllabus for the M.Ed Course for the year 2006-07 if a candidate fails-remains absent in one paper only but has passed all the remaining papers he shall be permitted to appear in that paper in the next two consecutive years. On the basis of the aforementioned Ordinance learned counsel for the petitioner submits that the petitioner was entitled to re-appear in the paper in which she remained absent.

Mr.Patwalia learned counsel for respondents No.1 to 3 submits that the Ordinance 9.2 stands deleted by the Syndicate vide para No.60 dated 18.10.1999 and has in fact inadvertently been shown in the Ordinances as well as in the Syllabus for the year 2006-07 hence the petitioner is not entitled to re-appear in the paper.

In the present case the Ordinance as well as the Syllabus which was issued clearly permitted a student who had absented or failed in one examination to re-appear. Therefore the petitioner was well within her right to re-appear in the “Paper-3 Educational Research and Statistics”.

Once it was indicated in the Ordinance that an absentee student can reappear
then the University can not disallow the petitioner from appearing in the Examination.

In view of the above we allow the instant writ petition and permit the petitioner to appear in “Paper-3 Educational Research and Statistics” which is scheduled to be held on 09.04.2008. The petitioner shall be issued Roll Number for the aforementioned paper forthwith. It is made clear that as the Ordinance 9.2 was inadvertently not deleted from the Ordinance therefore this order shall not be taken as a precedent in any other case.

Copy of the order be given dasti under the signatures of the Court Secretary attached to this Court.
