Since its inception the IQAC has been actively involved in improving the quality of education in the college. The significant efforts made by the committee towards this goal includes the following:
- Preparation of the SSR report which serves as a self appraisal and feedback tool for improving the teaching –learning process.
- Conduct of various seminars and extra-curricular activities to make the learning process more holistic.
- Improving the overall college environment so as to make it more conducive to quality education
- Attending various seminars on Quality education which further contributes to improving the teaching –learning process.

BEST PRACTICE: 1
TITLE OF THE PRACTICE: STUDENTS WELFARE FUND
OBJECTIVES OF THE PRACTICE:
• Helping the economically poor students through a welfare scheme devised by the college.
• To extend helping hand for needy and deserving students
• To provide financial assistance to the poor students irrespective of category
• To ensure higher education for all
• To inculcate the values of ‘generosity’ and social responsibilities
• This scheme is directed towards achieving an inclusive institution.
Since the inception of this college, the management proactively supports students from humble background. The college has a large number of students from economically marginalised section. There are evidences that some of them drop out due to lack of financial support. Thus, the institution has taken a firm resolve to extend all possible financial support to the deserving and needy students and help them to realise their dream of acquiring higher education. Hence, the teachers of the institution decided to establish a Faculty Supported Student Welfare fund to meet the financial needs of these students. This approach has given the space and opportunity for the learners to continue with their education. Sometimes, these impoverished students may also face economic difficulties at home and hence are unable to seek medical help for themselves. In such circumstances, the fund is utilised for the provision of meeting such needs.
A Faculty Supported Welfare Fund has been created in which every teacher contributes monthly. The amount is nominal and the in-charge of the Faculty Supported Welfare Fund is responsible for the collection and discharge of the fund maintained in the Bank account. The applicants are screened based on certain criteria established beforehand. Students coming from BPL family are given preference for the financial support. A duly constituted committee of teachers of the college after due verification of the documentary evidence and strictly following the guidelines framed for the given purpose may extend help wherever possible such as in the form of examination fee of regular and meritorious students who are unable to pay the fees due to their financial inability. The College also helps them to avail different types of state and central government scholarship programmes and special committee for students welfare are formed for the same. Students finding any difficulties can approach to the concerned convener and the issues are resolved to its best extent. Apart from the scholarships to the needy and poor section, the college assist a lot to motivate the students with academic excellence. To have all round development of the student, college also assist students to take up extension activities, co-curricular and extra-curricular activities. The students are awarded medals and certificates during the annual college fest
EVIDENCE OF SUCCESS:
The decision of creating Student Welfare Fund was made in the year. Till date, several students have been supported financially. Their examination fee were provided by this fund. Financial assistance on medical grounds was also provided to some of the students from the same fund. In one rare instance, the impoverished family of one female student who had committed suicide was also given some amount as financial assistance to carry out her funeral. Since the inception of this practice, our institution has been trying to help not only the students but also their families when they face such financial difficulties. In doing so, the institution has been extending its hand for the betterment of student’s community and the wider society. The increase in the number of students over the years and the diversity of the students in terms of religion, economic backgrounds, culture and region is a testimony of the success in providing such holistic and inclusive education as stated in the vision and mission of the institution. This practice is striving towards upholding equity and inclusion among the economically disadvantaged learners through such funding approaches.
PROBLEMS ENCOUNTERED AND RESOURCES REQUIRED:
It is known fact that every good initiation or practice would face ups and downs; our institution is no exception to this. Some of the problems encountered are:
• Since the teachers contribute willingly the amount is not certain and is very less.
• Verification of the financial backwardness of the aspirants was yet another challenge.
• Inappropriate or insufficient information contained in the supporting documents such as the income certificate of the parents is a technical difficulty.
• Inhibitions like low self-esteem, peer-opinion, and doubts among the recipients were also encountered.
Although the state government provides scholarship in the form of financial assistance to the students every year, the amount is very nominal considering the rise in price of commodities in today’s market. Thus, there is a need to increase the scholarship amount to provide more assistance.
BEST PRACTICE: 2
TITLE OF THE PRACTICE: ANIMAL CARE AND COMPASSION COMMITTEE.
This Committee has been recently formed in the year 2021 to inculcate the feeling of empathy towards stray animals among the students.

Our logo signifies “service through Education”. Hence in order to build a nation of youth and to develop the emotional feelings among the students, our college has formed Animal Care and Compassion Committee. Since the committee is a newly formed organisation, the key issues in the area of animal welfare includes animal testing and treatment of animals. This committee is dedicated towards helping stray animals in every possible way. The challenges faced is mainly the committee being a voluntary one and also those who have empathy towards the voiceless.
On the special occasion of World Animal Day, the members and 27 students of various departments visited animal shelter in Shapley run by an NGO where they donated food medicines to the voiceless animals. The aim to visit this shelter was to help the needy animals and was to teach value loaded actions where students are expected to be more sensitive and empathetic towards the voiceless. The Committee strives to highlights the urgent need of making the students aware of animal protection Acts and to unite all animal lovers among teaching, non-teaching members and students to protect and rescue animals stray in and around the college campus.
EVIDENCE AND SUCCESS:
As mentioned above, the Committee being a newly formed organization it has limited work done so far. On the auspicious day of “VIBES 2022” (College Annual Fest), the members of Animal Care and Compassion Committee along with ECO Club had opened a stall for fund raising programme. The main aim was to spread awareness among the college students and to raise few amounts of money for betterment of our voiceless needy animals. The members and students volunteers also visited local NGO and provided food, medicines and others items needed for the stray animals. The members also help all those needy stray animals who are found in and around the campus for medical treatment and better care by taking them to the nearby government veterinary centre.
PROBLEM ENCOUNTERED AND RESOURCES REQUIRED TO IMPLEMENT:
Animal Care and Compassion Committee was formed mainly in order to create awareness about our voiceless animals and to develop empathy towards animals who faces various problems in its path. The most important and vital issue is the non-availability of funds. The only source of funds collection is through fund raising programme by students or through voluntary donations for the needy. There is no single fund available to the Committee members in order to organise some workshops or awareness programme in the future. It is basically done in collaboration with local NGO. Our college and the members of Animal Care and Compassion Committee intends to set up one centre for stray animals in the form of parks where the homeless stray animals can be provided shelter and proper food in near future subject to availability of funds
