How does the institution plan and ensure that the available infrastructure is in line with its academic growth and is optimally utilized? Give specific examples of the facilities developed/augmented and the amount spent during the last four years (Enclose the Master Plan of the Institution / campus and indicate the existing physical infrastructure and the future planned expansions if any).
The Committees of Staff Council, in particular Timetable and Workload Committee, Academic Affairs Committee, and Purchase Committee are always involved in taking the lead in futuristic planning keeping in view the horizons of academic growth and socio-cultural developments. These not only prepare optimal plan for the immediate requirements, but suggest futuristic options and measures to the Principal and Governing Body, who in turn plan and seek to provide for the required resources in best possible ways. The College, wherever the plans consolidate into concreate proposals, effectively communicates the same to the funding agencies at the first opportunity, such as UGC budget plans. The success of College in obtaining funds in past few years for New Science Block, Girls Hostel, renovation and repair of auditorium, and so on are live examples of this strategy and its effectiveness.
Similarly, at the start of each session, the Departments are asked their current and near-future requirements in view of the emerging needs of curricula and supplementing the deficits if any of the past session. The budget proposals so obtained are carefully scrutinized by a special appointed group of senior faculty members and the recommendations are communicated to the Governing Body for sanctioning the budget. The sanctioned budget streamlines the smooth running as well as expansion/growth of the corresponding facilities.
Following the above stated procedure, presently a new master plan for renovation and expansion of the College Building has been proposed to the funding agency, besides smaller plans of construction of Boy’s Hostel and Staff Flats already in the pipeline at advanced stages. The College feels encouraged when these carefully prepared plans are kindly accepted by the funding agencies subject to their budgetary constraints, and the growth process rolls-on.
The number and distribution of students with physical disabilities varies from year to year, though there is a somewhat general pattern seen over the years. In view of this, College has made access ramps, and installed an elevator, designated a space for machine-enabled reading for the visually challenged, and ear-marked a budget for giving away helping devices. Every year visually challenged students are given away Angel voice recorder-player from the College besides specifically configured notebook computers provided by the Universities Equal Opportunity Cell.
A special toilet for the persons with physical disabilities is operational on the ground floor. The timetable schedule makes best effort to allocate the classrooms in a way such that such students are facilitated in access and are conveniently placed.
