1.Title of the Practice: Rain Water Harvesting
Objectives of the Practice:
Keeping in view the prevalent climatic conditions and over exploitation of precious ground water
resources, the college administration has taken initiative to contribute significantly by recharging the
ground water to save the precious resource for the welfare of humanity by optimum utilization of rain
Due to the vast built up area, there is a great scope to harvest considerable amount of rain water. The state
Govt. has introduced JAL SHAKTI ABHIYAAN to conserve water resources. To support the efforts of the
Govt., the college has taken a step forward by installing rain water harvesting system in the college at two
Groundwater recharge is the enhancement of natural ground water supplies using rain water recharge
system. The college has two vast built-up areas which are known as Old Teaching Block and New
Teaching Block. On the request of college administration, the Directorate has sanctioned a budget of Rs.
13.03 lakh to set up RWH system in the college. The project has been completed by Public Works
Department, Govt. of Haryana. Firstly, the RWH system has been set up in the New Teaching Block. After
that Old Teaching Block has also been covered in this system. The three main components of Rain water
harvesting system include catchment, collection and optimal use of rain water.
The catchment area includes roof tops of Old Teaching Block, New Teaching Block and Multipurpose
Hall. Rain water that is collected on the roof top of the building is diverted through 6” drain pipes to a
filtration tank (for bore well, through settlement tank) from which it flows through 12” PVC pipes into the
recharge well. Further the collected rain water from roof tops is used to recharge ground water reserve, it is
passed through a desilting pit with a depth of more than 45 meters, before entering the aquifer. The
settlement tank facilitates the settling down of suspended material i.e.. silt and other floating impurities
before the water recharge the aquifer.
Evidence of Success
The college has two teaching blocks and both the teaching blocks are covered under RWH system. In this
way, college contributes significantly in preserving the precious water resource by recharging the ground
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
Being a Govt. institute, the college has no administrative and financial rights to set up such a system
which demands huge financial resources. That is why, the college administration has to approach Higher
Education Directorate to establish RWH system. Only after the approval from the Directorate the college
administration initiated the process.
2. Title of the Practice FEEDBACK SYSTEM
To Evaluate the existing teaching-learning environment and to take appropriate action for the
improvement of poor performing areas.
The IQAC of the college has designed feedback proforma covering the different aspects such as college
administration, teaching-learning process, library, basic infrastructure etc. pertaining to four different
Feedback form Students
Feedback from Parents
Feedback from Alumni
Feedback from Teachers
In the present era, the teacher-student relations in any educational institute play a crucial role in the
development of the students in particular and the institute in general. To determine the capabilities of
students, they are being evaluated through the process of well-defined examination systems. At the same
time, for determining the capabilities of teachers, a feedback system is required to be kept in place.
Feedback mechanism system ensures a detailed analysis of the performance of the teachers with respect
to the various parameters. The feedback system involves collecting the duly filled feedback forms from the
students through their mentors and then the data is stored in the excel sheets and analyzed through various
tests and a final report is generated with all outcomes in the form of charts, diagrams, and graphs.
Questionnaires are of primary importance in any feedback mechanism system and in this project, a
questionnaire of twenty seven questions is prepared on the basis of which students give feedback on a scale
of 1 to 5, with 1 being the poor and 5 being the excellent. The bifurcation of 27 questions is done in
following manner :
Library administration- 4 Questions
College Administration/ Physical infrastructure – 9 Questions
Teachers Specific Questions – 14 Questions
In order to achieve the desired objectives, the feedback forms from different stakeholders are collected,
analyzed in a transparent and unbiased manner. The full feedback report with significant measures to
enhance the quality is uploaded on the web portal. It provides a proper feedback to the concerned teachers
and hence can help to have good results as the teachers concerned would then work on their weaker points
as the same would be reflected from their individual feedback report
Near about 70% responses from the students/parents, 100% from the teachers and 20% responses from the
alumni are received and analyzed.
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
Despite the best efforts of the IQAC, the quantum of feedback received from the alumni is far from the
satisfactory level. The alumni association needs to organize such interesting and motivating activities
regularly that can attract more and more alumni enthusiastically.
The aim of the project is to reduce the time for getting feedback data and provide an in-depth analysis
about the performance. The existing manual system for the same takes a lot of time for analyzing the
performance and the manual processes are susceptible to errors. Instead of collecting through offline
mode, the online feedback mechanism ensures a time saving, eco-friendly and fair feedback to the
concerned faculty involved, but due to the poor background of the students, college is unable to go ahead
with the online mechanism.
