2.3.2 Students mentoring system available in the institution? Give details. (Maximum 500 words)

The College has a traditional mentoring system which has been improved time to time with the changes of the course structure. Mentoring of students in the College starts from the admission in the 1st semester UG and PG courses for selection of their Honours subjects as well as Generic and General subjects. During admission, students are advised to follow the college’s prospectus critically, so that they can know the academic, administrative and financial facilities which will be given by the college throughout the year. Especially for UG students, this year several classes were taken immediately after the admission to explain the course curriculum and semester examination system. Students are also advised to follow the College’s website notice regularly for different online application process. After admission, students are encouraged to attend their theoretical and practical classes especially in the first two months, when they are intimated about the name/ names of mentor teachers for their help to study in the College. Students are also encouraged to make the best use of the library. They are also intimated to check the Academic Calendar, from where, they can know the tentative dates of the mid-semester internal examinations and test examinations and other relevant information. In the mentoring process students are not only advised about the intellectual upliftment, but also about their physical fitness, sports and cultural performances. Poor attendance and disinterested students are separately nourished by the respective mentor teachers. Entire mentoring process is executed by undertaking vigorous programme of teaching learning, sports and curricular activities in the harmonious ambience within the campus. College also provides an effort in mentoring the students on self reliance, skills in communication, coordination, planning and management, academic writings and presentation skills in different ways. Generally, mentor teachers mark their slow learners through the process of routine class deliberation and help them to attend in the remedial and/or tutorial classes. In the existing mentoring process College always tries to make an effort to mould the students into a talented professional in their respective field of study.

The mentor-mentoring process helps students

  • Know their college
  • Know their subject of interest
  • Know facilities available in their institution
  • To overcome the difficulty in earlier stage in teaching learning
  • Identify their skills

2.5.2 Reforms initiated on Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE) system at the institutional level (250 words)

College has taken initiatives on Continuous Internal Evaluation (CIE)

  1. At the beginning of the session the teachers provide and explain the contents of the syllabus to the students.
  2. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions from the previous day’s lecture.
  3. After completing a few topics from the syllabus, students are given assignments. This is to check the writing skill of each student.
  4. Projects are prepared by students on selected topics on the syllabus.
  5. Tutorial classes are held especially for slow learners to clarify their doubts and queries.
  6. Teachers also give suggestive questions and answers from the previous years’ question papers. This helps the students to prepare themselves with the pattern of questions for the final exams.
  7. Class tests are taken in the form of MCQ, Viva- voce and practical test. The corrected answer scripts are given back to the students. Suggestions are given for writing better answers.
  8. For practical based subjects excursions and field reports are guided by the concerned faculty of the Department. The students are provided with computer labs. They are taught to use internet, to search web page to gather relevant information.
  9. Classes are also held in the smart room where teachers can use audio –visual aid and power point to make the lecture more interesting.
  10. With the introduction of semester system there is more frequency in the class-tests. The institution has framed a calendar for each semester. Therefore, evaluation is evenly conducted throughout the year.

2.5.3 Academic calendar prepared and adhered for conduct of Examination and other related matters (250 words)

Kalna College follows an Academic Calendar for the smooth functioning of the institution through timely discharge of its academic and administrative duties. Every year, the calendar is prepared well in advance of the commencement of the academic session (scheduled from July to June of the following year), keeping in mind the calendar of the University of Burdwan as well as the general annual calendar, so that working days and public holidays are distributed at par with all other institutions affiliated to this University. The Academic Calendar contains the following:

·       Name & Address of the college, Name of the affiliating university, postal, telephonic, email and web addresses of the institution;

·       Space to record the identity details of the student/ faculty member, as applicable;

·       Provision for the college routine;

·       Number of teaching days, holidays and working days (specified on a monthly basis), with the sum total of each provided at the end, to depict the schedule for the entire year;

·       Dates of mid-semester internal examinations

·       Holiday list corresponding to the general annual calendar;

·       Timetable to record the performance/ participation details of students engaged in NSS/ NCC and other extra-curricular activities;

·       Pages to note the minute of important institutional events.

Before finalising these dates, it is made sure that adequate number of teaching days are available prior to each examination so that the students are provided with sufficient classes to ensure the coverage of the syllabus. Separate attendance registers for both Honours and General students are maintained so that the percentage of their attendance can be calculated on the basis of the number of classes attended against the total number of classes given in a month. In order to adhere to the dates mentioned in the calendar, Teachers’ Council meetings are conducted from time to time to confirm the coverage of the stipulated curriculum before each ensuing examination.

There are specific policies regarding utilization and maintenance of physical, academic and support facilities. The main objective behind utilization of all such resources is to fulfil the academic needs of the institution. On the basis of the needs and demands expressed by the teachers and the students, equipment for the laboratories, books for the library, teaching aids for the classrooms, computer items and sports materials are purchased and maintained by utilizing various government grants and the college fund. Various committees and sub-committees of the college take the responsibility to ensure the proper utilization of funds in this respect.

The physical facilities are provided by the college to satisfy the needs of the students as well as the staff members. These include common rooms, drinking water, toilets, electric light, fans, canteen, cycle stand, substitute electric supply, e.g., generator, etc. In all the cases feedback from the students are given importance and decisions are taken accordingly to upgrade the quality of service.

The academic and support facilities are provided as per the requirements of the students and the teachers. These include classrooms, laboratory equipment, teaching aids, library facilities, computers, internet, smart classrooms, etc. The rules and regulations of the academic and funding authorities play the guiding role in purchasing and utilizing these resources. For example, purchase of laboratory equipment and textbooks is connected with the university curricula and academic programmes. Financial matters are guided by the rules and regulations of the funding authorities like the University Grants Commission and the State Government. In case of purchase of books for the B.Ed. section, guidelines of the NCTE are followed. Besides, the advice and suggestions given by various visiting teams from the UGC, the State Government and the parent university play important role in formulating policies for maintaining and utilizing all these facilities.

For sports related issues, suggestions from the concerned department of games and physical instruction and the Kalna College wings of N.C.C. are given importance.

For installation and maintenance of IT infrastructure, the college engages the concerned staff members as well as outside competent agencies as and when required.

All purchase related activities are monitored by the Purchase Committee of the college. Documentation regarding purchase of equipment, books and stationeries and utilization of various funds in this respect is done centrally by the college office as well as the concerned departments where possible. Applications of information technology in all such activities have increased substantially in recent days.

5.3 Alumni Engagement

5.3.1 Whether the institution has registered Alumni Association? Yes/No, if yes give details (maximum 500 words):

Yes, Alumni Association was registered vide Registration No:  S/IL/36965

Alumni are an institution’s Brand Ambassador, carrying those core values of excellence, lifelong learning of inclusiveness and diversity across the world. The ethos and culture along with education the alumni had from their institution express their philosophy and vision towards life and the world. So considered Kalna College alumni association (S) is a pride of Kalna College (Established 1943).

Kalna College alumni association was established on 23rd January 2004 - A day historic in significance being the Birth day of the Great Netaji –‘Subhas Chandra Bose’, a luminary in the firmament of the sky of colonial India. The Ex-students of the College were emotionally enthusiastic to have chosen the day for the patriotic purpose. The meeting was convened by the then Principal, Dr.Satiranjan Chakraborty and the constitution was made. The constitution was duly registered in 2006 under West Bengal Society Registration Act XXVI of 1961 vide our registration no S/IL/36955 of 2006 -2007.

Kalna College Alumni Association besides imparting training in innovative skills to the alma matter contributes significantly to the development of Kalna College through financial and non-financial means during the last five years. At present 300 hundred alumni have been actively participating in the meeting held in the Association’s own office. On the 5th September, the Teachers’ Day they auspiciously observed the day and rejoice it in various rejuvenative ways every year. Besides they arrange tree plantation programme, blood donation camp, snake bite awareness programme etc. The association pursues and sustains excellence in the field of education and in search for knowledge by interaction between the alumni the faculty and the present students of the College.

Alumni announce scholarships and awards to the poor and meritorious students on regular basis through a trustee organisation ‘SAHAJAG’ (Government registered) from its own fund. In order to enhance the association fund, the alumni contribute an amount of money themselves and collect money if the situation so demands, as for example in 1993 the alumni contributed the lion share to the construction of the Golden Jubilee Building which was inaugurated by Honourable Higher Education Minister, Prof Satya Sadhan Chakrabarty.

During the last five years the activities of the alumni association have been accelerated with participation of some enthusiastic and interested alumni. In 2017-2018 Academic Session alone 177 alumni contributed a sum of Rs 250/- (Two hundred fifty only) each and 26 alumni contributed Rs 500/- (Five hundred only) each and one alumnus contributed Rs. 5000/- only brings a total amount of Rs 62,250/- only is to be added to Rs 50,000/-(fifty thousand only) which has been remaining as fixed deposit in nationalised bank. The alumni are even ready to render financial assistance under any emergent situation. It is worthwhile that the association audited statement of account regularly and accordingly.

The alumni association, Kalna College solicits the participation of more and more alumni of Kalna College. The alumni are indeed playing a vital role by providing sustainability to the parent’ institutions. In 2017-2018 a new committee of the alumni association was constituted. Significantly many of the alumni contributed articles to the ‘platinum jubilee commemoration volume’ and thus enriched it to a great extent. The alumni association of Kalna College is setting a pioneering example in its glorious mission consisting of a number of teachers, professors, doctors engineers, scientists, literary figures, social scientists, journalist, minister and social workers the alumni association can help to identify strategic direction for Kalna College in the running 21st century.

CRITERION VI –GOVERNANCE, LEADERSHIP AND MANAGEMENT

6.1 Institutional Vision and Leadership

6.1.1 Mention two practices of decentralization and participative management during the last year (maximum 500 words)

Generally college is run by the active and decentralized participation of all members of the Teachers’ Council either as a member of the Governing Body or as a member of the different sub-committees to implement the decisions, which clearly establishes the condition of participatory management. Among the different decentralised participative events practised in these institutions, following two important activities are narrated here.

1. This year a new composite Building was constructed under the financial help of the Govt. of West Bengal. It was required to shift some of the departments to avail more effective facilities and space. After thorough discussion with the different departments IQAC of the college finally settled that few departments like, English, Political Science, Commerce, Botany and Zoology will be shifted to the new composite building entirely and few departments like Mathematics and Sanskrit will be shifted partially at the ground floor. A language laboratory situated at the third floor of the building will be used by the Bengali, English, Sanskrit and B. Ed. Departments at different timeslot. This is also an unanimous decision taken by college as a whole.

2. College went under lockdown on and from 14-03-2020. During this academic session pay scale of all teaching and non-teaching staff were revised under ROPA-2019. In the month of April’20 Govt. announced that the new pay scale will notionally be implemented w.e.f. 01-01-2020 and the entire fixation will be done through HRMS module of IFMS. At that time under the able guidance of the college IQAC, a meeting of the teaching and non-teaching staff of the college was convened to prepare a committee to workout the fixation of all staff by using the HRMS module through online mode. A five membered committee was constituted through online discussion and the said committee did their job very nicely despite the bad weather at that time due to cyclone ‘Aila’.

6.2 Strategy Development and Deployment

6.2.1 Quality improvement strategies adopted by the institution for each of the following (with in 100 words each):

v Curriculum Development

 

·        Planning of Syllabus:

Each Department organizes departmental discussions to break up the syllabus into several modules and assigns definite portions to different faculties.

·        Analysis of syllabus and routine preparation:

The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub-committee comprising members from each of the streams prepares the class routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms in order to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning.

·        Regular conduction of tutorial classes:

Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination.

·        Conduction of Examinations:

Class tests and Annual (Final Test) Examinations are held regularly as per predesigned schedule

·        Conduction of remedial classes:

Remedial classes are held to deliver the curriculum effectively to the slow learners and to those coming from backward communities.

 

v Teaching and Learning

The Academic sub-committee of the college prepares the academic calendar well ahead of the new session. The Routine sub- committee comprising members from each of the streams prepares the master routine keeping in view the number of working days and the availability of classrooms. In the class routine theoretical and practical classes are so arranged as to give students enough scope for creative thinking and profitable learning. Tutorial classes are held regularly to give the learners the first-hand knowledge of tackling difficult situations in the examination. Remedial classes are held to deliver the curriculum effectively to the slow learners and to those coming from backward communities. With the onset of lockdown throughout the nation, the IQAC had initiated a uniform online platform to take online classes. The College had purchased paid version user system from G-Suit to enable the conduction of online classes on a daily basis for all departments following a pre-set routine and the records of the classes were linked with Google calendar assigned to the admin for record. Prior to that all the teachers of the College were taking online classes individually by using different online platforms like zoom, skype etc. 

v Examination and Evaluation

At the beginning of the session the teachers provide and explain the contents of the syllabus to the students along with the pre-assigned schedule of the test examinations. Everyday performance of a student is assessed by asking short questions from the previous day’s lecture. After completing a few topics from the syllabus, students are given assignments. This is to check the writing skill of each student.  Projects are prepared by students on selected topics from the syllabus. Class tests are taken in the form of short as well as descriptive questions. The corrected answer scripts are given back to the students. For practical based subjects excursions and field reports are guided by the concerned faculty of the Department. Mock practical examinations are also conducted for the Honours students. In addition to the above, as per the guidelines of the University Internal assessments are conducted separately for students of all the semesters before each subsequent final exam. Under the circumstances of lockdown due to the COVID-19 pandemic, it was instructed by the University of Burdwan, following the order of Higher Education department to arrange online exams for the final semester students. The college had arranged a well-managed system to conduct online exams of about 2000 final year students, most of which are belonging to rural area, within in a very short time. The online evaluation of answer scripts of the final year students was also successfully done well in advance through pre planned guidelines adapted by the College in collaboration with IQAC.

v  Research and Development

Like other general degree colleges, Kalna College has also minimum scope of doing research along with under graduate education, due to several hurdles and constraints. In spite of that, college has constituted a research committee to promote and pursue the research work as far as practicable. College IQAC, Teachers’ Council and Principal himself encourage the teachers to undertake the research project who are yet to pursue the Ph. D. to register forth with or to insists the Ph. D. awarded teachers to carry out the inter and intra departmental collaborative research work for academic excellence and also for their Career Advancement Scheme (CAS) benefit. IQAC and research committee always asked the principal investigator to submit research progress report. Not only the college always collected the report but also provide full support in terms of infrastructure, financial autonomy, speedy release of fund, essential extra ordinary leave etc., if it is sanctioned by the sponsoring agency. On account of this vigilant roll of IQAC, the number of publications of research paper has become increased to 09 (2019-2020) is worth mentioning. Moreover, college organized a Summer School on Mathematics in collaboration with Indian Mathematics Consortium and a national level Seminar on Historiography and an IPR related discussion in this year.

v  Library, ICT and Physical Infrastructure / Instrumentation

There are three campuses in Kalna College namely (1) The Main Campus (3.60 acres) built up area 5,761 sq. m. (2) Staff Quarter Campus including a computer centre (0.30 acres) built up area 648 sq. m. and (3) Hostel and Playground Campus (2.33 acres) built up area 3,244 sq. m. Main building in the main campus is a complex 3-storied building contains office, classroom, toilets, laboratory and central library with its own water supply system. Golden Jubilee Building (2-storied) contains classroom only while B. Ed. Building (3-storied) contains classroom, toilets, and laboratory. This year a 4-storied new composite building containing classrooms, laboratories, toilets is included with our existed infrastructure. Main campus also contains a YOGA shed, girls’ toilet, canteen, cycle shed and a small pond. Whereas other two campuses contain three hostels, nine staff quarters, one small pond and a small playground. There are 39,161 books and 9 journals (1617 issues) in the library, 9 LCD machine, 7 classroom with public address system and 01 internet browsing centre in the college for providing technical support to the students and others. 

v Human Resource Management

The Governing Body plays a pivotal role in framing the strategies pertaining to the various aspects of the college administration, academic and general development. Principal in close coordination with Governing Body, IQAC and the Teacher’s Council ensures the active implementation of the policies, plans and development framed therein. Teacher’s Council in presence of Principal chalk out the entire teaching–learning and evaluation strategies of a particular year at the beginning of the session. IQAC meet at regular intervals to monitor and implement the quality strategy of the institution. Twenty-four different sub committees help in drawing out the plans pertaining to admission, examination, students’ council constitution, fixing outreach programme of NCC and NSS, Games and sports schedule, preparation of Master routine and Academic calendar etc. There are few supporting staff almost in all these committees for collection and preservation of documents and records. Teachers’ qualities are improved by participating and/or arranging the Refresher Course, Orientation Programme, Academic Seminars and Workshops. Similarly, the qualities of non-teaching staff are improved by conducting technical workshops and instrument demonstration. Students’ union plays an important role by communicating urgent notice for students through social media. They also assist the general students during on line form fill-up process and help the authority by providing feedback and collecting information.

v Industry Interaction / Collaboration  

To establish and extend this facility college is linked with the Industry Institute Partnership Cell of Burdwan University. Moreover, with the help of this cell college regularly organizes the Affirmative Employability Training in collaboration with Tata Consultancy Services (TCS) from 2015-16 session. In the Affirmative Employability Training near about 60 students participate and the training usually starts in the month of December-January and exists for 100 hours.  After successful completion of the course, the company took viva-voce followed by a written examination. Generally, they absorb the successful candidates through campus interview. However, in this academic session, the above training was withheld due to the critical situation of the Country. In addition to this the college is trying to collaborate with other such organisations. The Alumni members are also active in this regard.

 

v Admission of Students   

Kalna College follows a transparent and student friendly method in first Semester admission in the college. The college has an admission committee comprising all Head of the Departments and some technical staff from office. One of the senior teacher acts as coordinator of the admission committee. The committee members set up norm for admission in different Honours and General course. A student can opt for five different Honours subjects and can be get admitted in one of the choice Honours subjects according to the merit. The selected student has to pay the requisite fee through online (SBI Collect) and get admitted in the college. The complete procedure is strictly on the basis of online merit list published.  The admission committee meet at regular interval to make the system smooth, full proof and transparent. Admission of PG students’ is done centrally by the University of Burdwan.

6.4 Financial Management and Resource Mobilization

6.4.1 Institution conducts internal and external financial audits regularly                 Yes

  (within 100 words each)

The College has a mechanism of internal audit system. Basically, a teacher having knowledge of accounts and management is deputed as Bursar of the College. He personally assists the accountant and cashier of the college regarding how to keep different records in different ledgers. There is a provident fund sub -committee in the college, which thoroughly scrutinizes the Provident Fund Account and provides suggestion and opinion to the Accountant of the College from time to time.

Besides a parson having cost and chattered accounts background is recruited by the Governing Body of the college for thorough internal audit of the accounts. The Concerned person has internally audited the Accounts for the last few years and also the year 2019-2020 for B.Ed and General sections and remarked against the personal advances, undistributed provident fund interest and improper expenditure voucher keeping system. Presently College collects all fees through online and/or offline banking but fails to start the software-based accounting system due to the shortage of qualified staff.  The principal brings these suggestions and recommendations of internal auditor to the Governing Body for discussion and correction of the existing practises.

These thorough internally audited papers are submitted to the external auditing concern, deputed by the Director of Public Instructions, Higher education Department, Government of West Bengal. This year external auditor has been deputed by the Government but due to the COVID-19 pandemic situation college could not arrange the audit of accounts till date.

Resource Mobilization

College has two ponds of its own one of which is situated inside the main campus of the College and other is outside of the hostel campus. These ponds are yearly leased for earning some revenue by the College authority. College has also 37 nos. of stalls of its own to prevent encroaching along a portion of the boundary wall and by dint of it a onetime fund of Rs 20, 00,000/- is generated. The same has been saved under fixed deposit scheme which provides an annual interest of Rs 1, 00,000/- approximately. Besides, these stalls generate annual revenue of Rs 40,000 only in the form of rent. A portion of the unused teachers’ quarter has been provided to the WEBEL INFORMATICS for running computer application courses on rent basis. This also generates a fund of Rs 50,000/- Yearly. College also provides its campus for competitive examinations venue, which also generate some fund. Moreover, college always tries to invest the fund excess over the expenditure at any nationalized bank. But in this year due to the lockdown situation resource could not be mobilized by using the fixed asset like pond.   

1.     Rent from stalls : Rs 40,080/-

2.     Rent from Webel Informatics : Rs 96,000/-

3.     Interest on Fixed Deposit generated for stall construction: Rs. 1,00,000/-

  1. Future Plans of action for next academic year (500 words)

Future Plan for the next academic session

(i) Opening up new courses (ii) To start some add on program on mushroom cultivation (iii) Improvement of infrastructure facility (iv) Organizing seminar/workshop (v) Strengthening of ICT (vi) Career Counselling and Affirmative Employability Training programme for students (vii) Feedback analysis

Opening up new courses: Kalna College is one of the oldest colleges under the University of Burdwan and has 15 honours courses in different subjects including Computer Science, Santhali and Physical Education as general subjects. It has a long demand for opening up new honours course in Computer Science and also PG courses in History, Mathematics and M. Ed. College has been trying to introduce at least one new UG and/or one PG course for the last few academic sessions.  

Add on course on mushroom cultivation: As this locality is basically an agricultural hinterland hence, college has decided to introduce the add on training program on mushroom cultivation for students from the next academic session, so that, it helps the students to get earnings in future.

Improvement of Infrastructure facility: This year the construction of new composite building under development grant of Govt. has been completed. Therefore, in order to shift some departments requisite furniture and fixtures are to be procured/purchased.  College IQAC will decide the name of the departments to be shifted by discussion with the Teachers’ Council and HoD of all departments and also by considering the need for expansion. The maintenance work of old college building is under process and is expected to be completed within this academic year. College has already introduced the Solar Grid Power and has thoroughly renovated the electrical wiring to decrease the line loss. College has already set up the rain water harvesting system for its gardening purpose but it is to be used properly. The construction work of Girls Hostel is postponed due to the paucity of fund but the beautification work in the campus will be continued.

Organising seminars and workshops: The seminars and workshops not only benefit teachers but also help students to have some exposure to present ongoing research work. College has decided to organize seminars and workshops on various subjects in the academic session 2020-21, to enrich both teachers and students on newly introduced CBCS syllabi.

Strengthening of ICT: The IQAC meets regularly on the issue of the strengthening of ICT. The college has taken initiatives to procure more LCD projectors, computers and Laptops to increase the facility of ICT and increase the internet facility. Considering the COVID-19 pandemic situation college has introduced the web-based online platform under G-Suite at Google Meet for taking online classes. The teachers are encouraged to use different ICT devices in teaching -learning process by using this platform. The network centre dedicated for filling up the forms of university examinations, review and the application for scholarships under different schemes will be improved. The college has already set up the Language Laboratory, now it is required to start by using the proper software.   

Career Counselling and Affirmative Employability Training for Students: College has a Career Counselling Cell which regularly counselled students in different aspects. The career counselling cell generally arrange the Affirmative Employability Training by TCS every year. But due to the lockdown situation this program has been postponed. The Career Counselling Cell will also try to arrange this program through online mode if TCS accepts the proposal.  

Feedback analysis: Feedback analysis is one of the important parts for the development of all Higher Educational Institution. The feedback from different stakeholder viz. students, employees, alumni, teachers and guardians are collected, analysed and action taken properly. Specific feedback forms are issued to the different stakeholders and are collected through institution’s specific mechanism. The feedback from the Alumni is generally on the overall performance of the college and the scope of creation of job opportunity and employability training. The outcome of the feedback is implemented for improving the college’s academic and administrative performances. Collected integrated feedback report will be shown on the college website along with some specific remarks of the stakeholders.
