Evaluative Reports of the Departments
Preface The Govt.P.G College Gadarwara feels delighted to submit its self Study Report for 2nd cycle Reaccreditation to NAAC Bangalore. We appreciate the role of NAAC as an agency which sets a benchmark for quality in Higher Education. It has been sensitizing the Higher Education Institutions to be aware of instilling quality in different aspects such as curriculum, teaching, infrastructure and the Best Practices. As per criteria of Assessment set by NAAC, we have been able to assess ourselves and it provides us and opportunity for self evaluation. In this process we come to know our weaknesses and it prompts us to make determined effort to remove them.
However, I would like to make a humble submission that our college is situtated in a semi urban area, catering to the students belonging to poor rural and agrarian families. The meritorious and talented students migrate to the technical courses and to the colleges situated in cities like Jabalpur, Indore and Bhopal. Only mediocre and average students having weak academic foundation get admission in our college. Moreover, the familial circumstances of the students are quite miserable and compelling. We have a daunting challenge to make out the best from the worst stock of the students.
Against this backdrop, we wish to uplift our college as an ideal one. Despite the fact that we have to work amidst a number of limitations, we express our firm resolve to give our best so that the underprivileged lot of students come at par with the privileged ones. However, I would like to Suggest that NAAC should include special provisions for colleges working in disadvantaged ambience in their scheme of assessment and accreditation.

COLLEGE AT A GLANCE The college was founded as Narmada Mahavidyalaya in the year 1962 under Municipality, Gadarwara. Later in the year 1965, Rajarshi Purushottam Das Tandon Education society took over the responsibility to run the college. On 1st July 1972, the college was taken over by the Government of Madhya Pradesh and since then the college is known as the Government Post Graduate College, Gadarwara District Narsinghpur (M.P.). At present the college is being run in two buildings – One, the old building provided by the Municipality, Gadarwara where classes of Arts faculty are held and another, the new building, constructed in the year 1996 where classes of Commerce and Science faculties are held. The administrative wing is also situated in the new building.
Gadarwara is a tehsil headquarter situated in the district of Narsinghpur, Madhya Pradesh. There is no other institute of higher education except this college in Gadarwara tehsil. It has been catering to the need of quality higher education to the students of this Narmada belt for over last forty years. Though the confluence of urban and rural students can very well be seen in the campus, its beneficiaries are predominantly rural ones economically so much backward that they can hardly go to far-off cities for higher education.
Gadarwara located along the western-middle railway line is surrounded by Satpura range of mountains and is 55 kms. towards west from the district place Narsinghpur and is also nearly equidistant from two large cities of Jabalpur and Bhopal. A famous tourist place Panchmarhi known for its shaivite temple in the ambience of remarkable scenic beauty of natural forests and waterfalls is just a few hours journey from here. Some important and relevant data of Gadarwara tehsil highlighting the importance of the college is given below-

Distinctive characteristics of the institution can be explained in short as below:-
It caters to the educational need of students of rural area in the field of quality higher education.
It has been serving the society and nation through creating a pool of highly enriched human resource. Many ex students of the this college have been serving as doctor, engineer, professor, civil servant, teachers, officers and employee in various services such as defence, railway and police.

The college offers six Under Graduate courses including B.Sc. (Biology), B.Sc. (Maths.), B.Sc. (Computer Application), B.C.A., B.Com. and B.A. and ten Post Graduate courses including Chemistry, Maths., Botany, Zoology, Hindi Literature, Political Science, Sociology, Economics, History and M.Com.

Some students of this college have also secured position in the merit list of the university. The list of those students has been shown in the annexure.
The total number of students in the college has been continuously increasing over the years as clear from the graph shown in the annexure.
Purposes for which it undergoes the process of assessment and accreditation by the august institution of NAAC are following-Primarily to know the strengths and weaknesses of the college and thereby to start removing the weaknesses and consolidating our strength.
The institution having an sprawling area of 6.973 hectares and total student strength of 1390 at present, has an immense potential for further development. Creation of various new infrastructural facilities such as extension of the college building, construction of well-equipped research laboratory, stadium, hostel facility, auditorium, quarter facility and automation of library is proposed. These require a huge capital investment possible only when an increased financial support from the University Grant Commission (UGC) is received.
College is having a good strength of about1575students of both genders.
College is bearing its responsibility democratically . every possible freedom is given to the staff for college development.
Dedicated and hard working and experienced staff .
Infrastructural availability of all the resources like rich library ,Computer Lab with Broad band Connectivity.
Research promotion by encouraging staff to take more projects and become Supervisors for guiding Ph. D.
Moral education is being given to students as a compulsory subject.
Administration is emphasizing on spiritual practices also encouraging students to gain knowledge but do not part with their parental business.
NSS is giving strong platform for extension activities.
Rain water harvesting and waste water management accepted naturally.
Environment consciousness is promoted.
College is Polythene Free zone.
College is conscious for gender sensitization.
Women Cell is organizing self defense training to girls.
For their protection security issues are taken care CCTV is placed in all the corners.
To maintain the discipline among staff members Bio- Metric devices are used.
Career Fair is organized to promote career guidance and placement activities.
Pradhanmantri Swachchata Abhiyaan is emphasized more.
Limited exposure to linguistic and communicative skill skills of students,
Geographical location is inappropriate to attract the recruiters
Majority of Students almost 80 percent hail from agrarian society and they are self-satisfied and usually feel contented, they lack motivation to excell in their career,
Since Narsinghpur is almost a satellite town of Jabalpur, students depend a large extent on the facilities at Jabalpur, for research related activities. Most of the students are from economically poor background . Some of them are breadwinners for their families. It is a constraint in their academic developmentThe Majority of students belong to agricultural family. They have to give helping hand to their guardians. Hence they are unable to attend classes regularly. Most of the sanctioned posts in different subjects are vacant. As for example English, Chemistry, home science, Botany, Zoology, History, Political Science, Economics, Hindi, Physics. They have to rely on guest faculty.
The college caters to the higher educational need of the surrounding villages. It is instrumental in spreading higher education among weaker section and women population of the villages around this college.
A variety of postgraduate courses are offered by the college. The college endeavors to provide job opportunities by arranging career counseling and Rojgar Mela.The students are provided with practical knowledge through job oriented vocational projects in the last semester of UG&PG.Vivekananda career guidance cell organizes 21 days workshop to train students for self employment in the field of mobile repairing and computer hard ware.
Good linguistic ability is yet to improve.
To breed a culture of competitiveness and appear in such examinations.
Curriculum designing requires some change ,hence to fulfill the industry based need is beyond its control.
