Section 1: Preface
The Maharani Shri Jaya College was established by the erstwhile Maharaja of Bharatpur in 1941 as an intermediate college with an objective Sa Vidya Ya Vimuktaye i.e. Eduaction to Liberate. It was upgraded to a degree college in 1947 and subsequently the P.G. College in 1977. It had also enjoyed the status of an autonomous college from 1987 to 1995. The college popularly known as M.S.J. College is one of the oldest colleges in Rajasthan. It is a government funded institution and is affiliated to the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur. The college is spread over an environment friendly area of 50 acres of land and situated in the heart of the Bharatpur town. It has got recognition by the University Grants Commission (U.G.C) under 2f and 12 (B) in 1972 and has been receiving grants under various schemes.

The college has adequate infrastructure facilities. It has classrooms, laboratories, central library, computer center, playgrounds etc. There are four N.S.S. and two N.C.C. units to carry out extension and out reach programs of the college in the nearby rural areas with the help of student volunteers. The annual budget of the college in 2004-05 was Rs. 5,15,15,700 /- and was utilized as per guidelines of the State Govt. The college does not generate resources of its own. The unit cost of education at this college is estimated to be Rs. 7754/- per annum.

The Maharani Shri Jaya College, Bharatpur (Rajasthan), volunteered to be assessed by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC), Bangalore and submitted its Self Study Report (S.S.R.) in May, 2005. A Peer Team was constituted by the Council to visit the college and validate the Self Study Report. The Peer Team consisted of Prof. L.N. Dahiya, former ProVice-Chancellor, Maharishi Dayanand University, Rohtak (Haryana) as Chairperson, Prof. K.L. Miglani, Principal, Arya P.G. College, Panipat (Haryana) as member Co-ordinator and Prof. Hari Ji Singh, Dept. of Chemistry, D.D.U. Gorakhpur University, Gorakhpur (U.P.) as a member. Prof. S.S. Khehra, Dean faculty of Law, Punjabi University, Patiala (Pb.) was also deputed to assess the Faculty of Law only for the first day of the visit.

The Team visited on 5th, 6th and 7th September 2005 and verified the relevant documents and also interacted with various constituents of the institution. The academic, co-curricular, extra curricular, sports and other facilities of the institutions were looked into. The Peer Team interacted at length with the Principal, faculty, non-teaching staff, students, alumni and parents as well. Based on the above exercise and the inputs provided during the visit, the interaction with various groups, verification of the records, facts and data, the Peer Team assessed the college. The commendable features and issues of concern are presented in the report as follows.

Criterion 1: Curricular Aspect
The college provides both undergraduate and post-graduate programs in the faculty of Arts, Science, Commerce and Law. At the undergraduate level, in the faculty of Arts, there are nine departments comprising of English, Economics, Geography, Hindi, History, Philosophy, Political Science, Sanskrit and Sociology. The faculty of Science is comprised of Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics and Computer Applications. The Commerce faculty offers B.Com. in three streams i.e. Accountancy and Business Statistics (ABST), Business Administration, and Economic Administration and Financial Management (EAFM). The Law faculty runs a three-year LL.B. course. The college offers nine P.G. programs in the departments of Economics, English, Hindi, History, Political Science, Philosophy, Sanskrit, Sociology and Geography in the Arts faculty, ABST, Business Administration and EAFM in the faculty of Commerce. The college also conducts P.G. courses in Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics, Mathematics in the faculty of Science. It also runs Post Graduate Diploma in Computer Applications (PGDCA). The law faculty offers P.G. Diploma in Labour Law as well.

Since the college is affiliated to the University of Rajasthan, Jaipur, It follows the syllabi framed by the University. A few teachers of the college are members and conveners of the Board of Studies of their respective departments in the university and hence contribute in the formulation of the syllabi in various subjects. The university has revised several courses as per UGC guidelines. The college cannot introduce any kind of program of its own unless the state government/university permits. It takes about six months to start a new program. A majority of the courses in the college are conventional except PGDCA, which is under the self-financing scheme.

The college organizes co-curricular activities such as field visits, educational trips, debates, declamation contests, seminars and various competitions for the students. Introduction of more subjects with local requirements and global trends would help the students to equip themselves to face the future emerging challenges.

Criterion II: Teaching Learning and Evaluation
The college has adopted satisfactory teaching-learning and evaluation system. The teachers prepare their teaching annual plan and time-table which is communicated to the students in the beginning of the session. Methods of teaching, by and large, are conventional. However, certain departments are using innovative teaching aids like OHP, Models and Charts.

The college conducts three terms tests apart from the annual University examinations. Out of three, two are organized at the class level (teacher-wise). However, these terms tests are not being conducted regularly in all the academic sessions due to poor response of students. The reason for this poor response is due to the fact that the university does not have any provision of incorporating the marks obtained in the class tests for the annual examinations. The University on the basis of syllabi conveyed to the college every year conducts the annual examinations. The college also organizes remedial classes for ST and SC students as and when required or when the UGC grants are available to the college for this purpose. Advanced learners are encouraged to take up small projects or given some academic assignments. The college results in the faculty of Arts, Science and Commerce are satisfactory at the undergraduate and post graduate levels but in the faculty of Law the pass percentage is extremely low. The academic calendar is followed in letter and spirit. A few students of the college have got positions at the university level. The teacher-students ratio in some departments including Law department is highly unfavorable. It is commendable that some of the students have qualified the NET/SLET Examination conducted by the U.G.C. and State Government during the last three years.

Teachers are motivated to improve their professional skills by attending Orientation, Refresher courses, conferences, seminars, and workshops at various levels. Several teachers in various departments have substantial publications to their credit. Working days of the college in a year are 223 out of which the teaching days extend approximately up to 168. Every teacher is required to take a teaching load of 24 periods per week. The teachers, as stated earlier, are recruited on the recommendations of Public Service Commission, which conducts the interviews for the post of lecturers for various government colleges of the state from time to time.

Every teacher fills a part of the annual confidential report Proforma, so that the evaluation of the teacher is carried out by the Principal on the basis of his/her work, conduct results and the columns of the self-appraisal filled up by him/her. Adverse report/comments are conveyed to the concerned teacher with a view to improve upon.

Criterion III: Research, Consultancy and Extension
The college offers undergraduate and post-graduate programs. Out of 151 permanent teachers of the college, 99 have Ph.D. degrees and 21 are M. Phils. Teachers of the college are working on 17 minor research projects sanctioned by the U.G.C. under the Xth five-year plan with an outlay of Rs. 8,72,000/-. However, no teacher has so far got the sanction for major research project from any funding agency.

Thirty six teachers are approved supervisors at Ph. D. level. 22 scholars have been awarded Ph.D. degrees and 78 are pursuing research work under their supervision. Several teachers have written text books in their respective areas. Their papers have also been published in journals at national and international levels. Four teachers in the college have been awarded Ph.D. degree during the academic session 2004-05. The Phytological Society, Bharatpur, brings out a journal entitled “ Journal of Phytological Research” , twice a year. Most of the teachers in the department of Botany of the college are associated with this society. The college does not have placement cell as such but it has established a career guidance cell, which provides services in the areas of career aptitude assessment, career planning and counseling of choice of subjects.

The N.S.S. volunteers and N.C.C. cadets carry out the extension activities. At present there are four units of N.S.S. and two N.C.C. units each i.e. Infantry and Artillery. The broad areas of extension activities are community development, health and hygiene, social work, Blood donation camps, AIDS awareness etc. The college may extend its area-wise out reach programs to give it a larger cover for solving problems of the community on a larger scale. The activities of N.C.C. are quite satisfactory. 110 cadets have passed ‘B’ and 69 ’C’ certificates respectively in both the wings that is Infantry and Artillery the academic session 2004-05. During the last two years, 3 cadets of the college have participated in the Republic Day parade at New Delhi. One N.C.C officer of the college was awarded “Defence Secretary Appreciation Certificate” in 2004 on account of his best services to N.C.C.

Criterion IV: Infrastructure and Learning Resources
The college has a spacious campus spread over 50 acres of land located in the urban area of Bharatpur town. However, many of the students are from adjoining rural area. Presently, the total number of students is 6486.

The college has 35 number of classrooms for teaching of various classes. It has required number of laboratories for Zoology, Botany, Physics, Chemistry, Geography and Computer. It has playground, administrative block, girls’ common room, canteen and multipurpose hall to carry out extra curricular activities. The college has also four boys hostels- one on the college campus and three outside the college campus, but these are not allotted to the students due to various reasons. The facility of dispensary is not available to the students. The college should provide the facilities of generator, potable water and proper furniture to the students. The Public Works Department maintains the college infrastructure. A commendable feature of the institution is the optimal use of existing infrastructure. The college has the Regional center of Vardhman Mahaveer Open University, Kota for distant education in all the disciplines. It helps those students who are unable to continue their studies as regular students.

The college has a library with 1,09,272 books which has 30,000 titles. The number of journals and periodicals subscribed by the college is 40. The library functions from 7.30a.m. to 5.00 p.m. on all working days. Facility of Book Bank is provided to the students in the college. The college is required to initiate the process of computerization of the library. The college should also provide the facilities of Internet and reprography so that the students of this college compete their counterparts of the metropolitan cities for their better future progression. The Book Bank facility needs up gradation with regular annual addition of titles. Several P.G. departments have their departmental library. The library in the Law department is deficient and does not meet the requirements as laid down by the Bar Council of India.

The college provides facilities for many games viz. Kabaddi, Football, Volleyball, Handball, Hockey, Squash, Judo, Athletics, Boxing, Weight lifting and indoor games like Badminton, Table Tennis and Wrestling. The college needs to maintain its play ground and provide necessary equipments to the students, so that students can be motivated to participate effectively in sports and games. Some players have participated at National, Regional and state level competitions and also won Gold and Bronze medals in Hockey, Handball, Boxing and Wrestling.

The N.S.S. program of college is working satisfactorily. The N.S.S. volunteers participated in the need based activities for the villagers and educated them regarding the social evils like AIDS, illiteracy by organizing special camps. Blood donation camps are also organized. The college publishes a Magazine named Jaya annually in which the students get an opportunity to develop their creativity in writing and develop their expression capabilities.

Criterion V: Student Support and Progression:
The college publishes its update prospectus every year in the beginning of the academic session. It contains information regarding admissions procedures, fee structure, financial programs and also rules and regulations of the college, academic calendar, details of curricular, library and support services, regulations regarding NCC, NSS, university examinations and evaluation methods. The drop out rate in the college is high which needs remedial measure by the college.

The college provides ample scope to students to participate in sports, extension activities and academic events, which enable them to exhibit their talents. Outstanding sports persons should be encouraged by giving them cash prizes as per their achievement. Scholarships to the SC/ST students are also provided by the state government through the college. Various social welfare programs viz literacy drive, awareness programs, blood donation, AIDS awareness campaigns are conducted by the NSS and NCC units of the college. The college should form the alumni association for its overall development. The students feedback about the teachers and campus experience be initiated. It is creditable that five students of this college have joined Rajasthan Administrative services and 19 are selected for Higher education services by Rajasthan Public Service Commission during the last five years.

Criterion VI: Organization and Management
The college is controlled and administered by the Directorate of Higher Education, Government of Rajasthan. The college is fully funded by the government. The concerned University plays an important role in the preparation of the academic calendar of the college. The Principal with the help of three Vice-Principals supervises all activities of the college. The co-ordination and monitoring mechanism is controlled by several committees of teachers which look after various functions of the administrations. The non-teaching staff works under the direct supervision of the Principal and the college has been able to discharge its duties effectively. However, the power of transfer, award of senior scale, selection grade study leave etc. of the employees vests with the state government. The college has inbuilt mechanism to check the work efficiency of the non-teaching staff. The accounts of the college including U.G.C. grants are well maintained and are audited regularly by the internal and external auditors of A.G. department. The college development council comprising of senior officials and the prominent citizens of the town mobilizes the resources for the welfare/development of the college.

There is no formal grievance redressal cell for the staff and students. The Principal directly deals with the redressal of grievances of both the teaching and non-teaching staff. These are redressed through meetings, discussions and negotiations. The issues, which involve financial implications or beyond the competence of the Principal are referred to the government for further necessary action. Students have easy access to teachers and Principal for redressing of their day-to-day problems. The loans are made available to its employees by the government as per rules.
