Part - A

 

            Three years have passed since our college has been accredited by NAAC. We have undoubtedly been benefited by this accreditation as it has acted as a great impetus for us to work for further improvement in academic as well as administrative field. As has been stated in our previous I.Q.A.C report, our U.G and P.G courses under Netaji Subhas Open University and Vidyasagar University Distant Education Centre have proved to be a great success satisfying the growing demands of the students unable to attend the regular classes of the conventional University courses. Our appeal to Calcutta University for sanctioning Sanskrit Honours and Computer Science General courses has been happily complied with and classes of these subjects is  likely to be started from this year. What we have achieved in the past and are going to achieve in the future is made possible by the ceaseless effort and cooperation of every sector of our esteemed institution        

 

Part - B

 

1. Activities reflecting the goals and objectives of the Institution: .
The aim of our institution is to create a congenial academic atmosphere and to train the minds of young students who can successfully complete the undergraduate course and apply this academic skills in different spheres of work later on. This institution not only implements the curricula under the compliance of Calcutta University, it also seeks to develop moral fiber of the students who can truly serve the society. We always remember the great sayings of Sri Aurobindo: “The central aim of education is the evolving of knowledge and will and of the power to use knowledge, character, culture, that at least if no more.”


2. New Academic progamme initiated (UG and PG):
In this academic year no new programme has been initiated.

3. Innovations in curricular design and transaction:  
We have no scope to initiate new innovations in our curricular design and transaction as we are not an autonomous body. Our institution is registered under Calcutta University and has to abide by the curriculum already structured by C.U.


4.   Inter- disciplinary programmes started:
We have not yet started any inter-disciplinary programme, but with the introduction of Computer Science as general course this year the scope for inter-disciplinary approach is being open as the Dept of Mathematics will participate in the progrmme.


5. Examinations reforms implemented:
We are not authorized to implement examination reforms as the rules and regulations of the Final Examinations are predetermined by C.U. But we have taken some initiatives to improve upon the set patterns of our internal examinations which assist the students in understanding their flaws and shortcomings and provide them opportunity to overcome this.


6. Candidates qualified : NET / SLET / GATE etc. : 
Four of our students have qualified  NET in the last year. .

A quite good number of papers have been published by our faculty members in several national and international journals. (See annexure). Free internet access to all faculty members is available at the college.
