Media coverage of Dayanand College, Ajmer Rajasthan, Rajasthan

NAAC report of Dayanand College

Since 2001 Dayanand College functions under the aegis of D.A.V. College Management Committee, New Delhi, which manages many institutions across the country. Due to shift in the management the College is undergoing a transition period. The College is a grant-in-aid institution offering some self-financed courses.

The College volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore and submitted its Self-Study Report (SSR) on 31st Jan. 04 . The Council constituted a peer team consisting of Prof. Veena R. Mistry, former Pro-Vice-Chancellor, The M. S. University of Baroda, (Gujarat) as Chairperson; Dr. M. N. Welling, Principal, Mithibhai College of Arts, Chauhan Institute of Science and Amrutben Jivanlal College of Commerce and Economics (Maharasthra); Member; Prof. H.K. Bajaj, Department of Nematology, C.C.S. Haryana Agricultural University, Hissar and Dr. Suresh C. Sharma, Principal, Motilal Nehru College (Evening) (Delhi) as Member Co-ordinator. The Peer Team visited the College for two days viz. 13th and 14th August, 2004.

The Peer Team studied the Self-Study Report, and other relevant documents, visited the Departments, and interacted with various constituents of the College. Different infrastructure facilities were also visited. Based on the above mentioned process and exercise, the Peer Team assessed the institution for the quality of education being offered. The ensuing pages present criteria-wise assessment, commendable features of the College, issues and concerns as well as commendations and recommendations.

SECTION 2 : Criterionwise Analysis
Criterion I : Curricular Aspects
Dayanand College, Ramganj, Ajmer-305 001, Rajasthan is an Arts, Commerce and Science college. Besides B.A., B.Com. and B.Sc. programmes, the college conducts postgraduate programmes like M.A., M.Sc., M.Com., M.Phil. & Ph.D. The College also conducts B.P.E. course. For all these courses the College is affiliated to Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati University, Ajmer. It also conducts B.Sc. Agriculture(Hons.) programme which is affiliated to Rajasthan Agriculture University, Bikaner. There are 30 Departments in the college.

Total number of students registered in aided courses is 1669 and in self-financing courses is 165. In B.Sc., the College offers courses in Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics, Botany and Zoology. In B.A., courses in History, Sociology, Geography, Political Science, Drawing & Painting, Economics, English, Hindi & Sanskrit, are offered. In B.Com. degree course, all the subjects are compulsory. In addition, the college conducts M.A. courses in Economics, Geography, Sociology, Hindi, English, History, Political Science, Drawing, Sanskrit and also Ph.D. in Arts in the subjects of Geography, Political Science, Sociology, Hindi, Sanskrit, Drawing and Painting, Economics, English and History. M.Phil. programme in Sanskrit is available at the Research Center called ‘Dayanand Vedik Shodhpeeth’. It offers M.Sc. in Physics, Mathematics and Zoology. M.Com. & Ph.D. in Commerce are also offered by the college. The students of B.A. can opt for one of the three subject combinations offered by the college, whereas B.Sc. students can opt for one of the two subject combinations offered by the college. The courses for B.Sc.Agriculture (Hons.) have been formulated as per the latest guidelines of the Indian Council of Agricultural Research (ICAR). B.A. as well as B.Com. students do not have much flexibility in the subject options. No elective options are offered by the college. In fact the university regulations do not permit programme flexibility with respect to time frame and horizontal mobility. The college needs to develop mechanism to obtain feedback from academic peers and employers on the teaching programmes.

It takes one year for the College to introduce a new programme in the present university system. The College needs to introduce more need-based self-financing courses, which will help the students to become entrepreneurs or to get employment. It also needs to develop college-industry-neighbourhood network which will help the students in their career after graduation. The College does not have any role in designing the curriculum being an affiliated institution. However, there are many members of the teaching staff, who are on the Boards of Studies of Maharishi Dayanand Saraswati University and Rajasthan Agriculture University, and thereby help the university in the curriculum design in the respective subjects. The fact that the College offers programmes upto Doctoral level in some of the departments is commendable and so is the feedback mechanism from the students. However, there is a need to develop modus-operandi for utilizing the feedback so as to improve the curricular and co-curricular programme of the college.

The goals and mission of the College are to provide education based on theoretical and practical knowledge and all-round personality development of an individual based upon the traditional ideology of Swami Dayanand Saraswati. These goals have been partially fulfilled through curricular, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities.

Criterion II : Teaching-Learning and Evaluation
The College has adopted satisfactory teaching, learning and evaluation system. It has been managing several programmes, UG and PG, with qualified teachers. There are seventy-two permanent teachers of which thirty-eight have Ph.D. as the highest qualification and twelve have M.Phil. as the highest qualification. The college has also employed twenty-five part-time teachers of which six have Ph.D. degree and two M.Phil. degree holders. The College follows admission policy stipulated by the Government and the University, and follows reservation policy as per the norms in force. The selection of students for admissions to various courses is done on the basis of special entrance test, interviews, academic records and combination thereof. Admission to B.Sc. Agriculture (Hons.), is granted on the basis of merit at the entrance test conducted by the Rajasthan Agricultural University, Bikaner or Maharana Pratap Agriculture University, Udaipur. Some remedial classes are conducted for educationally disadvantaged students, counseling sessions and tutorials are also arranged for such students. High achievers are encouraged by giving them home assignments, and by organizing seminars and conferences. The bright students are encouraged to appear at competitive examinations, and to pursue higher studies and research. In very few departments, the conventional teaching methods are supplemented by organizing seminars, symposia, field study, classroom discussion etc. The percentage of the students passing the UG as well as PG is high. However, efforts need to be made to increase the number students passing in first class.

Number of teaching days for the college is 230. The teachers are encouraged to prepare teaching plan. The College follows self-appraisal method of evaluating the performance of the faculty in teaching, research and extension. On the basis of the self-appraisal of teachers, the Principal calls meeting of each department and gives suggestions to teachers in consultation with the respective heads of the departments. In addition, record of examination results of students taught by the individual teachers is maintained and the teachers are encouraged to improve the performance of the students.

The College provides enough opportunities to all the teachers to attend refresher and orientation courses for updating the knowledge and to develop awareness of the expanding frontiers of the subject. The College had demonstrated its potential for organizing and attending conferences, workshops and seminars etc. Five faculty members acted as Resource persons, whereas 44 teachers attended National Level seminars/conferences. Seven teachers attended International Level Conferences in the last two years. During the last three years, the College has conducted a few workshops/seminars sponsored by U.G.C./H.R.D. Ministry.

During the last two years, very few faculty members have attended faculty development programmes.

The College has post-graduate programmes like M.A., M.Sc., M.Phil., Ph.D., the teachers of the College need to develop research temperament, as it would enhance the quality of their teaching, which would in turn improve the knowledge and skills of the stakeholders. In order to improve teaching-learning process, the College needs to provide centralized media facility for the staff to prepare teaching aids. With the expertise available in various post-graduate departments of the College, it will be possible for the College to establish National/International linkages for teaching and research. Students evaluation of teachers needs to be formalized in order to get feedback from the students on teaching-learning process in the College. Attendance is taken to ensure commitment among the students as per the University norms. Students attending at least 75% of the lectures delivered can take up final examination.

Many departments in the College, particularly, in the Faculty of Agriculture are single-man departments. Majority of the departments do not enjoy administrative or financial autonomy.

The recruitment of teaching staff is affected by the State Government policies, though the management has made provision for part-time teaching faculty. As in similar cases this restriction impinges upon the quality of curriculum transaction. Some Part-time teachers are not qualified and paid Rupees three Thousand per month without any other benefits. The workload of these teachers is, at times, very high and they are not after to come to the expectations of students. This issue should be seriously addressed. While mechanism exists for evaluation of the teaching-learning process, this can be strengthened by better mode of participation, increased provision of research facility as well as support for academic participation and professional development of teachers.

Criterion III : Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college conducts under-graduate as well as post-graduate courses in the faculties of Arts, Science and Commerce, and also undergraduate course in Agriculture.

The major research activity of the College is based on post-graduate project work and research of doctoral students. Eight full-time and 3 part-time teachers have enrolled for Ph.D. To encourage teachers to participate in research they are given study leave, provided seed money under PTA scheme and by adjustment of teaching schedule.

In the period from 2001-2003 two major research projects by UGC had been sanctioned. Since 1999-2002, six minor research projects have been sanctioned by agencies such as UGC, ICSSR, etc.

There is a need to motivate more teachers to take up research projects and seek funding from agencies like UGC, DST, CSIR, DBT and ICAR. This will not only enrich the faculty but will also be of immense help to the student community.

The College conducts extension activities for which faculty members are given additional charge. National Service Scheme (NSS) unit and N.C.C. Naval and Infantry wings (boys and girls) conduct many programmes like health and hygiene awareness, organization of blood donation camp, medical camps etc. Many of these extension activities are organized by the college individually and with the help of NGO like Rotary Club and Lions Club. The NCC cadets have been selected for honours at the State and National level and some of them have been commissioned in the army in the last three years. The College offers extension services to farmers through final year agriculture students of B.Sc. Agriculture under RAWE programme. The students and teachers also undertake other extension activities. There is scope for further utilization of students potential for extension activities and outreach programmes.

The ethos of the College as well as its programme need to concentrate more on research and towards a concerted as well as co-ordinated organization of extension activities. Competence for consultancy will increase only after strengthening of research and extension programmes.

Criterion IV : Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The institution has adequate infrastructure facilities. It hopes to augment the facilities by building new structures to meet the ever increasing student strength of the College. Maintenance of the infrastructure is done through building and infrastructure grants. The older buildings need repairs and maintenance. Most of the laboratories need upgradation. Instruments in many departments including agriculture are outdated. No new equipment has been purchased in the Agriculture Department. It is unfortunate that in the U.G. Chemistry Lab oratory the disposal of used chemicals is through an open drainage system which can be hazardous. The furniture in most of the classrooms, departments and teachers room is old and needs maintenance. Besides, the academic programmes, the infrastructure is utilized for IGNOU study center and for conduct various examinations on its premises. The system of coaching classes for competitive examinations need to be revived.

Departments of Horticulture and Soil Science help intensively to keep the campus beautiful and pollution free.

Optimum utilization of infrastructural facilities is ensured by the college by permitting coaching classes for competitive examinations and vocational courses in computers to use the premises of the college.

The Library building is well-designed, spacious and well-maintained. Central library of the college is open on all the days of the week except Sundays and holidays from 8:20 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. It has 1,32,800 books having 86,450 titles and 99 journals are subscribed by the College. The College also has book bank facility. The library has a qualified librarian who works under the guidance of the advisory committee for the library. The library needs to be fully computerized and should be interconnected with other libraries for inter-library borrowings. The expenditure incurred on textbooks was less during the last year as compared to year before last. For the under-graduate study, there are adequate text-books and related materials. However, the holdings in terms of books and journals for post-graduate studies and research needs to be enhanced. As suggested by parents, there is a need to provide reprographic facility to students at a cheaper rate. It is suggested that at least 90% of the library fees collected from the students be utilized for purchase of books and journals.

The college needs to provide computers in the departments with internet facility, which is essential for post-graduate students and the staff.

Good sports facilities with swimming pool, playground for playing hockey, football, handball, cricket etc. are provided by the college. The college also has multi-station gym, volleyball and badminton courts. Outstanding sportspersons are encouraged by giving them cash prizes, scholarships, mementos and certificates. Several sportspersons of the college have participated at state, regional and national level. One student has participated in chess at international level. The College also has a good auditorium and hostel for boys.

Criterion V : Student Support and Progression
The college publishes its updated prospectus annually which includes the information about the growth of the college, the courses available, the rules, fee structure, scholarships and fee concessions etc. The college charges fees as per university/government norms. Many scholarships and fee concessions are available to the students besides the government merit and merit-cum-means scholarships. The College has instituted 8 Gold Medals and two Scholarships; besides these the College offers various Government Scholarships for socially and economically backward students. In the last two years 161 and 182 students respectively have received social welfare financial aid. The college has a canteen.

Drop out rate is as high as 10%. During last five years, thirty nine students passed the UGC-CSIR (NET) examination, whereas twenty five students passed UGC-SLET examination and three have cleared ICS examinations. The college has recently started practice of collecting feedback from the students.

The college runs an informal placement cell. Some of the students have been employed through the placement services. This employment was in the private sector, public sector undertakings, local firms/companies. The college employment cell motivates the students to seek self-employment by organizing awareness and entrepreneurship camps.

Recreational and leisure time facilities like indoor games, nature clubs, literary activities etc. are available to the students.

The college can boast of prominent positions held by its Alumni. It has founded an alumni association. The alumni need to help the present students of the college in providing them with additional inputs by way of fund raising, sharing their expertise and also help them by way of career counseling.

Criterion VI : Organization and Management
The college works under the guidance of its advisory committee, which helps the college in internal coordination and monitoring. The principal of the college is the academic and administrative head in the college. Many committees of teaching faculty have been formed to assist the principal in smooth functioning of the college. There is a special committee to prepare academic calendar of the college.

Quarterly reports of the non-teaching staff are submitted by heads of the departments/in-charges to the principal. The College needs to develop a mechanism to check work efficiency of non-teaching staff. The College should think of conducting professional development programmes for the non-teaching staff. Non-teaching staff also need to be deputed to participate in the programmes organized by the university/government. The employees of the College are facing difficulties since the take up of the College by new management since its office is located at New Delhi. Delays in the readressal of their grievances, leave application, loan etc. are delayed due to absence of local office of the management. The management needs to address this issue for the smooth administrative and financial functioning of the institute. The Principal of the College may be delegated sufficient administrative powers for the speedy disposal of the cases. There is need for more participation, coordination and transparency in the functioning of the institution as well as formulating mechanisms for financial display. Formal grievance redressal cell needs to be established in the college.

Budgeting is done by the college for the expenditure to be incurred during a year. However, under many heads of expenditures, the amount actually spent differs quite a bit from the actually budgeted expenditure. The college needs formalized has internal audit mechanism.
