Media coverage of KS Saket PG College, Ayodhya Uttar Pradesh, Uttar Pradesh

NAAC report of KS Saket Post Graduate College

Kamta Prasad Sunder Lal Post-Graduate College, Ayodhya was set up by the three well known social thinkers and visionaries Acharya Narendra Dev, Baba Raghav Das and Pandit Parmeshwar Nath Sapru on 25th July 1951, with a view to imparting higher education to the youth of the backward region of eastern Uttar Pradesh. This is located in between the twin cities of Ayodhya and Faizabad on the National highway No 28 at a distance of three kilometers from Faizabad which is about 130 kilometers east of Lucknow and 160 kilometers north of Allahabad and in the west of Varanasi and 140 kilometers west of Gorakhpur. This is the sacred birthplace of our Lord Ram. With the initiative and contribution of many others who joined them in this noble cause during the last over fifty years, the college now enjoys its reputation as a premier educational institution with an impressive campus spread over a sprawling area of about of sixteen acres. It is a non-government college run by an experienced Managing Committee trying to translate the objectives of its founders to provide diversified educational opportunities laced with value based education to its students.

The college is permanently affiliated to Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University, Faizabad and is included in the list of colleges maintained by the University Grants Commission under sections 2(f) and 12 B of its Act of 1956, since September 1973 and it receives from the UGC its due developmental and other assistance for its plans and projects. It also receives regular grant-in-aid from Government of Uttar Pradesh as per its rules and procedures notified and applicable from time to time.

The college prepared its self-study report in July, 2005 and offered to be assessed and accredited by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council. NAAC constituted a Peer Team with Prof K.K.Bajaj, former Dean of Colleges-cum-Director, College Development Council and Controller of Examinations, Himachal Pradesh University, Shimla as Chairman Coordinator, Prof Ramesh Kumar, Principal, Mukund Lal National College, Yamunanagar as Member and Prof K.P. Maheshwari, Devi Ahilya University, Indore as Member to visit the college and validate its self-study report. Before the proposed the visit, the copy of the self-study report submitted by the college and the Peer Team document prepared by the NAAC office on this report for making criterion-wise assessment, were made available to the members of the team under the able guidance and advice of Dr K.N. Madhusudanan Pillai, Academic Consultant, NAAC.

Before visiting the college the Chairman Coordinator of the Peer Team Prof Bajaj held an in-house meeting on the morning of 20th September 2005 with the members of the team at the place of stay at Ayodhya and discussed the modalities and procedure to be followed vis-à-vis the team perception so evolved, for validation of the report.

The Team visited the college on 20th and 21st September 2005 to interact with the Principal, Faculty, representatives of the Management, parents and non-teaching staff so as to validate the detailed information given in the self-study report of the college. The members of the team also visited the support services such as the library, laboratories, conference halls and different departments so as to validate the details mentioned in the Self-Study report. It also went through the various relevant details of the office record about the academic, administrative and financial aspects of the management of the college.

Criterion -I - Curricular Aspects
As a coeducational college set up to offer higher education to the youth of the backward eastern region of Uttar Pradesh in 1951 it has covered an impressive path of progress in academic field with progressive increase in its enrollment which now is 15054 (12062 Male & 2992 female) almost all of them from Uttar Pradesh, with its faculty support of 124 regular, 27 temporary and 50 part-time teachers out of them 135 are Ph.D holders for its 27 UG, one PGDCA, and 19 PG programmes in its faculties of Arts, Science, Commerce, Education and Law. It has a support of seventeen technical staff and one hundred and seventy three administrative staff. The college offers such subjects as English, Hindi, Sanskrit, Urdu, Political Science, Geography, Medieval & Ancient History, Economics, Psychology, Sociology, Military Science, Home Science, Philosophy, Music (V), Drawing & Painting, Mathematics, Botany, Zoology, Chemistry, Physics, Microbiology, Commerce, Law, B.Ed and Games.

Besides the detailed admission related information, which is available in the prospectus of the college, the Principal and the faculty also give guidance and counseling to admission seekers. The admissions are done on the basis of admission tests held by the college and the university for the specified number of seats in each class. It seems that it does not deny admission to any candidate in conventional subjects provided the applicant fulfils the minimum required condition of eligibility.

The college follows annual system in its UG & PG courses except in Law in which it follows semester system. All the subjects and combinations are taught as per syllabi and academic calendar prescribed by the affiliating Dr Ram Manohar Lohia Avadh University, Faizabad which conducts its examinations. Many teachers of the college are members of different Boards of Studies and other decision making bodies of the university and as such directly contribute to the modification, revision and enrichment of syllabi to be taught while also keeping in view the UGC recommendations and guidelines in different subjects. These courses are sustained though regular teaching and support of its laboratories in different science subjects such as Physics, Chemistry, Botany, Zoology, Microbiology besides Home Science, Geography, Computer Applications and the college library. Teaching is mostly done in Hindi in almost all the subjects except in science subjects in the traditional lecture method with supplementary use of practical teaching aids in science subjects, Home Science and Computer Applications departments wherever needed and possible. Regular use of OHPs, multimedia and other technology-enabled teaching aids is proposed to be introduced gradually.

The teachers do not unitize the teaching with daily teaching plans of courses but plan their teaching in the beginning of the academic session so as to complete the syllabi in different courses in good time before the annual examinations. The college does not conduct any formal talent search in the beginning of the session and also does not offer regular remedial courses for the socially and academically disadvantaged students but its classroom guidance and occasional class tests address these needs to some extent.

Eligibility to take the final university examinations is stated to be linked to 75 % attendance in the classes. The college faculty tries to take care of this requirement. A number of students who do not fulfill this requirement or are otherwise non-serious drop out. To keep the students informed of this condition, it has been mentioned in the prospectus and those students who fall short of lectures are informed through information displayed on the notice board from time to time by some of the teachers. However, it has not been practically possible for the college to detain the students from taking university examinations on account of non-fulfillment of this eligibility condition in view of the heavy classes. Besides this, some time is also lost in such activities as delayed admissions till the end of September, students' elections and other functions in the college.

Criterion - 1I - Teaching Learning and Evaluation
Following an admission policy to promote higher education for all in the backward eastern region of Uttar Pradesh and to bring all its students to the academic mainstream the college promotes student-teacher interaction and communication for better teaching learning possibilities. This includes classroom guidance, interaction, feedback and monitoring of students progress. The college offers classroom teaching for 137 days. The management of the college, under the state government rules, cannot recruit teachers which is done for the sanctioned posts by the state higher education commission as per procedures laid down by the university, the state government and as per qualifications specified by the UGC. At present there are one hundred and twenty four permanent, twenty seven temporary and fifty part-time teachers in the college. Out of these two hundred and one teachers forty-four are lady teachers. The college is empowered to make temporary appointments as per its contingent needs. But part-time appointments are made by the Management and the Principal under the self-financing courses so as to overcome contingent shortages and also ensure that the regular teaching does not suffer. The college has a large number of part-time teachers as well so as to meet such contingent needs of large enrolments in different subjects in the absence of regular teachers who are not allowed to be recruited as per state government rules and resource crunch.

The library, which is the hub of academic consultation and study, remains open for 247 days in a year and has a nine-hour daily working schedule. It has a stock of 153236 books and subscribes to more than sixty magazines and journals for the benefit of its teachers and students. Some times more than a thousand books are issued to students in a day. Each student is entitled to draw four books for a period of fifteen days. Almost all the Post-Graduate departments and the departments of Law and Education have their own departmental libraries which have good collections acquired over a period of time while at the same time most of their books which are of regular use to the students are kept in the main library yet these subjects require greater financial allocations for procurement of more recent titles. During the last year 6311 books were added at their total cost of Rupees 17,63,070/-. This could be possible through the assistance received from the UGC and the allocation made by the college for this..

The performance of the students is monitored through occasional class tests and interaction in every session.

The faculty is permitted to attend Orientation and Refresher courses so as to update their information level and pedagogical inputs leading to their professional enhancement and empowerment. They are also allowed to participate in national and regional seminars and academic workshops for this. A couple of departments have also organized national seminars in their respective areas of academic and social concerns. The Principal, on the basis of their university results, preparation and participation in curricular activities and their contribution to the institution, writes their ACRs. The college plans to introduce the procedure of teachers' self appraisal and students' feedback on a pilot scale so as to ensure that the teachers' accountability is visible and acts as a motivating factor in the entire teaching learning process for improvement of academic standards.

Due to numerous socio-economic factors drop-out rate of students is a matter of concern for all in the college and calls for analysis so as to prevent wastage of human resource.

Even the attendance in classes requires proper monitoring as it seems to be a low priority area for which attendance registers should also be more seriously maintained as a matter of record.

Criterion - III- Research, Consultancy and Extension
Though the prime aim of the college is to cater to the specific classroom teaching at the Undergraduate and Post-Graduate levels yet there is enough interest available in guiding research among its faculty through enrollment for Ph.D, but the faculty has not shown regular keen interest in attending many seminars, workshops and presentation of its papers in these. Similarly there is no institutional consultancy or research activity initiated by a majority of the teachers as such because of lack of interest, resources and support system. All the same the teachers are encouraged to undertake research or undertake higher education without any heavy financial liability on the institution.

Six minor research projects worth Rs 6,79,865/-, Rs 8,24,4000/-and Rs 90290/- have been successfully completed by the faculty in the departments of Botany, Psychology and Military Science in the recent past registering their modest contribution in research application. The college had also received a grant of Rs 9,25,000/- for mushroom spawn cultivation in the year 1997 under its department of Botany. However research effort may be better if greater support is sought from the national funding agencies such as the UGC, ICSSR, ICHR, DST, DOE etc for which suitable encouragement and information may be provided.

With an impressive complement of Ph.D holders in almost all the subjects, quality of research and teaching could be further ensured.

The teachers have involved the students in NSS, NCC, St John's Ambulance, Rangers and Rovers activities which have commendable social extension and outreach implications such as of spreading the message of service, health and hygiene, elimination of gender bias, AIDS awareness, blood donation, human values etc. The achievements of the college in these are noteworthy. These have also given the college a sense of social participation, recognition, responsibility and discipline.

Criterion - IV- Infrastructure and Learning Resources
Spread over an area of sixteen acres of its new campus to which it shifted in 1963, it has fifty one classrooms, adequate number of laboratories for all science subjects, Home Science laboratory, and a hostel consisting of fourteen rooms with two rooms for the warden and four servants' quarters to cater to the needs of its about twenty students now. It has four well-maintained conference halls for conducting departmental meetings and other activities of academic nature. The college requires more accommodation and physical support system to meet the expanding education related needs of its students and faculty. The available facilities have been developed in phases. It also offers all such facilities as library in which the acquisition is yet to be computerized and which remains open for nine hours a day. In all, it offers hostel, classrooms, laboratories, play grounds etc for its students besides ample accommodation for the office of the Principal, faculty and non-teaching staff in the college. The computer centre with twenty three computers of diverse configurations and varying nature is an added facility, which besides its teaching support handles the work pertaining to the office of the Principal, the administrative staff and students, and also helps impressively other departments. A few other departments too have their own computers. But the entire facility is not in LAN. The laboratories are mutually supportive of the inter-related subject studies.

Almost all the departments have their own power backups and the campus has its own overhead tank, water coolers, and hand pumps for regular and uninterrupted water supply and power supply for its laboratories and students.

The athletes are encouraged to participate in games with sports incentives and due coaching. Some of the students especially of the department of Music are also encouraged to participate in cultural activities.

Criterion -V- Student Support and Progression
The college offers teaching in specified permissible courses and combinations as per guidelines given by the university. There is no formal record of the placements, feedback from students received by the college in respect of its teaching learning continuum.

However, it has a good reputation of its students having gone to higher field placements and having done well. The meritorious students continue to be offered all help and encouragement by the college in their studies and career placements. Respective subject associations have created in them sustainable interest for further studies. The college has been organizing functions to promote interest in their progression.

The college is yet to formally constitute its Alumni Association to look back in pride and elicit gainful help in collegiate growth from such of its old students as have done well in life and also to provide them a platform and opportunity for their emotional involvement in their alma mater. It has a Proctorial Board, which besides taking care of the discipline in the college acts as a grievance- redressal agency in the absence of any such formally created forum. It also inculcates a sense of social responsibility and cordiality among its students.

The college publishes its annual magazine 'Saket Sudha' with different sections assigned to give expression to the creative talents of its students and to give an account of all its academic, cultural, co-curricular, extension and social outreach activities. Besides this the college brings out its revised and updated prospectus every year which contains details of information about the eligibility for admissions, examinations, courses and combinations available, attendance rules, hostel accommodation, various cultural and co-curricular activities, fee structure, concessions etc.

Criterion - VI - Organisation and Management
The college is run by the K.S. Saket College Managing Committee, with representation on it from different sections of society, which makes it an effective participative administration. It offers numerous functionally operative procedures and practices that make its functioning apparently accountable. For all its financial transactions pertaining to the disbursement of grant in aid from the government, Uttar Pradesh government rules are followed while for all academic activities the rule and guidelines of Dr R.M.L.Avadh University are applicable.

There is an internal audit system in place, besides the regular annual audit of college accounts by the state government auditors and an appointed chartered account of the college which ensures proper expenditure and utilization of funds available to the college from different agencies such as the state government, UGC, and resources generated from its self-financing courses, college revenues and the contribution of the management, if any. The college generated funds to the tune of Rs 25,73,323/- during 2002-2003 and Rs 26,44,914/- during 2004-2005 from self-financing courses. The fees of the college are low and are as prescribed by the affiliating university and as approved by the state government. It has received a generous grant of Rupees fifty lac for the construction of Acharya Narendra Dev Hall and Rs 77.78 lac for the construction of Gymnasium, Hostel and Reading Room during 2002-2005 from the state government besides UGC Developmental assistance of Rs 22,40,328/- for the X Plan period. Unit cost per student excluding salary it is Rs 516/-.

The auditorium is under active construction and is likely to be completed with all modern seating arrangements, equipment and acoustics within about six months. This will indeed be an asset to the entire area for holding cultural and other events which will also yield some revenue to the college.

The staff can seek loans as are permissible under its Management rules. There is a Teachers Welfare Fund, which provides help in moments of need.

Criterion - VII - Other Healthy Practices
Despite its huge enrollment this entire coeducational college offers discipline, amity, cordiality and common approach for its academic goals and balanced growth of its students. It is reported to be free from clashes which otherwise are a regular feature of the present day colleges particularly during students' election days.

The NSS, NCC, St John's Ambulance, Rangers & Rovers units actively participate in the social outreach and other programs of social relevance, responsibility and community orientation.

At the end of each session the college undertakes annual stock taking of the articles in every department and each broken and defective item/article is repaired or otherwise disposed off. Besides this there is regular white washing of the building every year to keep the ambience of an academic institution intact. Additions and alterations as required are made during the vacation or at the end of the session so as not to disturb the academic schedule of the college. The college offers separate rooms to its departmental heads. It promotes a sense of amity and coexistence among its students and faculty through academic and co-curricular functions.

The college is fully utilizing its infrastructure to its best advantage and support of its students and is inculcating human values besides academic gains.

Overall Analysis and Suggestions
The college has been offering higher education facilities to the aspiring young boys and the girls of the backward eastern region of Uttar Pradesh through easy and open access over a long period of time. It has also been accommodating the demand for the introduction of some new courses. This has been a commendable effort despite the ongoing resource crunch. All this makes the college a reputed institution in the area. This has been possible with the guidance of its management, and cooperation of the university, its teachers, students and of course the state government.

Apparently with its mission of imparting socially relevant education for its students it has miles to go and many more projects to undertake to mobilize additional financial resources to implement the same.

On the basis of its interaction with the Management, Principal, teachers, non-teaching staff and other stakeholders and on the basis of its visits to the library, laboratories, computer centre, class rooms, sports facilities and the reference to its record of its co-curricular activities and other related financial documents, the Peer Team makes the following suggestions which the college may like to consider :

As the college offers a good picture of faculty team work and has the promise and potential of taking up fresh academic and professional challenges and initiatives relevant to the area, special attention may be paid to introduction of new interdisciplinary courses which have relevance to emerging occupational patterns and which are region specific; may be they are part-time or regular or of the nature of hobby courses. This has a deep social implication for girls especially.

The number of teaching days require to be increased to at least 180 as per requirement of the UGC so as to enable the students to feel the academic ambience of the college and cultivate better academic discipline.

As assessment of quality substantially depends on students' interests it may be explored if in the course of future planning the introduction of courses, adequate course options, strategies for meeting differential needs of mixed-ability groups and student feedback, their progression and support systems could be emphasized. This way student participation in quality assurance could also be ensured.

With the gradual withdrawal of the state government from its funding function the profile of financial administration is bound to change and for this the college may like to involve the public and its alumni and tailor courses and consultancy initiatives to attract funds. It may even plan multi-shift utilization of premises by others who may pay for this facility.

The college may consider introduction of such of computer literacy short term courses as may generate funds for its running and offer reasonable surplus. The college may plan for holding of such events with sponsors as may give some surplus to it. For add-on or extra skills and communication courses, contractual teaching may be resorted to.

The tools and technology of teaching being in a state of constant up-gradation the college may plan for such inputs as give the teachers an edge over others in pedagogical inputs and their delivery system. The teachers may be enriched through minor research projects with the help of the UGC and other funding agencies and may even undertake small pilot projects of local relevance. Inter-disciplinary initiatives in studies may be also attempted. Greater effort may be made for introducing confidence building measures, personality development inputs and for taking up social challenges by the students such as of disaster management and symptoms of social unrest.

The library being the focal point of all academic activities of teachers, students and being their only on-campus learning resource centre requires to be suitably strengthened with a significant addition of latest books and journals in all subjects particularly in post-graduate subjects. Regular annual stock checking of books should be ensured so that the loss of books, if any, could be known and replacements of those books, which are reported, lost and are in demand may be procured. Photostat facilities may be provided in the library so that the students and the teachers can take relevant information from the books. User charges may be collected in this regard. The entire acquisition and issue process should be computerized for better management of the library through a dependable and well tried software. On-line internet surfing café be provided to advanced learners and faculty in the library.

The college should have its own website to give institutional information on academic packages and its vital achievements for the general information of all. All its examination results should be posted on this for the benefit of all students and parents.

To provide greater connectivity all available (over thirty) computers in the college be interlinked through LAN and all office record be computerized with a retrievable data base for future planning. Even the non-teaching staff should be given training to be computer literate.

With an increasingly competitive and expanding job market, placement of students would be an important concern. For their guidance and information through expert advice and entrepreneurship development program, a placement cell may be set up.

Regular follow up action on the analysis of teachers' self-appraisal may be undertaken along with students' views on teachers' performance in the class and outside the class at the end of the session so as to drive home the concept and practice of academic accountability among all. This may be initially started with the outgoing Post-Graduate students.

NCC, NSS, St John's Ambulance, Rovers units be given additional resources and avenues to extend their outreach activities to needy sections of society and get more socially concerned and involved.

Release of UGC assistance for its UG & PG departments be more expeditiously pursued and fully utilized to make full use of the schemes on the offer. Regular and timely utilization of its funds could be an additional help to the institution.

Post Graduate Departments may seek greater financial help from the UGC and other national funding agencies for major and minor research projects in their respective areas of academic and social interest. There is apparent need to provide more faculty improvement avenues.

Institutional incentives be introduced for participation in seminars, academic workshops, writing and publication of papers in journals and visits abroad for greater exposure of the academic community.

Teaching methods be technology enabled so as to extend their reach and to make teaching more interesting, effective and interactive. Greater use of OHPs, multimedia, cassettes, video packages etc may be encouraged to make the lectures more interesting.

Discussion on human rights, women empowerment, social issues, contemporary concerns should be more frequently held in the changing world scenario.

The students and the staff should be provided health and insurance cover as such through setting up of a first aid room with a part-time on campus doctor and provision of Group insurance.
