A. Executive Summary
The Nesamony Memorial Christian College established in 1964, true to its vision
to make the institution in higher education, a centre with potential for excellence has
been striving hard to realise this vision. As a Higher Education Institution (HEI), the
college caters to the needs of the economically and socially backward people, thereby
contributing to the development of the nation. Taking into account the development at

desirable value system among students. Cultural programmes are also conducted to
make the students aware of the social, cultural and environmental realities. Besides the
traditional methods of teaching- learning process, the college encourages the use of
modern tools like LCD. The feedback obtained from students helps to identify the
strength and weakness in the teaching-learning process and to carry out constructive
changes. As our college is affiliated to Manonmaniam Sundaranar University, Tirunelveli

of the institution in relation to the university average and neighboring colleges is much
better. When compared to other colleges our students obtain more number of ranks
every year. During 2011-12, we got 52 University ranks of which 7 are first ranks.
The college takes special efforts to help students gain employment. The Placement

given special training to attend competitions elsewhere. The outstanding sports persons
are given nutritious food arranged by the Sports committee. Also, the members of the
sports committee accompany students participating in various events outside the college.
The students are encouraged to participate in institutional activities. The college
Students’ Council, an elected body, functions with the objective of gaining leadership
qualities and to bringing out students latent talents. It also intends to promote cultural
and intellectual cooperation among the students and to organize meetings and welfare
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

activities which involve student participation. There are clubs to bring to the fore all the
hidden talents of students.
The administrative units are decentralized in such a way that power is not vested
with only a few individuals. Committees are formed and each committee plans and
fulfils the responsibilities expected of it. The academic units are controlled by the Heads
of departments and Faculty members. The staff council which comprises all HoDs,
Librarian, Director of Physical Education, Senate member and Office Superintendent,
helps the Principal in monitoring and managing all activities on campus.
The Quality Management is done by the Internal Quality Assurance Cell (IQAC)
which sends feedback to the HoDs and Principal who in turn monitor the programmes
accordingly. The UGC has sanctioned PG Diploma in Bio-informatics and the course is
successfully going on. The management provides all encouragement and support to the
faculty involved in research activities and best service conditions are provided in the
institution.
The college has introduced innovative courses like UG courses in Commerce with
Computer Applications and PG course in Tourism Management. After the first
accreditation, the college adopted two villages Kalingarajapuram and Pathukani. As part
of the extension service activities, eight houses were constructed in these villages. Later
on, as a way of catering to the needs of deserving people, 42 houses have been
constructed in different villages around Marthandam. The core values of NAAC are
reflected in the various functions of the institution.
Background Radiation Monitoring is done by BARC in our campus with a Solar
powered Radiation Monitoring System. The data from the same is sent back to BARC
periodically. The college acts as host institution.
The linkages with the multi-national companies by way of student projects (MBA,
MCA and M.Sc. Computer Science) have made our students more competent in the field.
The Bio-informatics lab is established recently and funded by UGC is of International
Standared. The college has signed MoU with the Distance Educational Centre of M.S.
University, Tirunelveli. There is also an MoU with Kodai International Business School,
Kodaikanal, affiliated Bharathiyar University, Coimbatore. The moral and religeous

instruction classes have been introduced to improve the personality of students. The
community services like constructing houses for poor including the poor students, blood
donation for critically ill patients and financial help to the visually challenenged children,
home for the aged, cancer affected patients and victims of national disasters. We share
the sufferings of the less fortunate students among us by providing free meals and fee
concession to them. We visit the houses of our students in order to know their family
background and financial position. We also provided Rs. 1750000/- to two students from
the Departments of English and Management studies who met with accidents.
We encourage the students to participate in sports and games by providing fee
concession, nutritious food and sports dress. During 2011-12 and 2012-13, our college
athletic team won the overall championship in Manonmaniam Sundaranar University
Inter-collegiate meet for the first time in the history of our college.
Regular parents’ meetings held class wise and the mark sheets which have marks
of all the students of that class and frequent class test have improved the performance of
the students. This year we introduce counseling programmes class-wise which is quite
different from that of previous year. Also we are arranging career guidance programmes
to all the classes.
The roof top garden has been launched on the terrace of women’s hostel. Uniform
for students was introduced last year with a view to bridging the gap between the rich
and poor within the campus. The fact that they will be identified as our students makes
them behave in a decent and responsible way. Due to the encouragement of the
management, government and UGC, there are 75 Ph.D. holders in the campus. As such,
we have four major and one minor projects in the departments of Physics, Chemistry and
Zoology.
Solar energy is used in the Department of Physics in order to promote renewable
energy and to reduce the usage of generator which ultimately reduces the carbon content
in the atmosphere. Every year, a sizable number of trees are planted in the campus to
protect the environment. We have started introducing LED lights in Physics lab to
conserve energy. The college office and library are automated. There is round a clock

water supply by digging giant well in our land in the river bed. The installation of RO
Plant sponsored by PTA, ensures the supply of mineral water in all blocks.
The Nesamony Memorial Christian College has the drive to develop into a Centre
of Excellence in teaching and research. The college has the requisite infrastructure and
faculty to march ahead to achieve the goals. The faculty seriously involve in all academic
activities for the benefit of students and the college. They also pursue various research
programmes to enhance their knowledge and make the college a centre with potential for
excellence. Discipline is a special feature of our college and for this purpose a Discipline
committee has been constituted. It makes significant contribution in maintaining
discipline on campus. The discipline and the cooperation of the faculty in all activities
will undoubtedly help the institution become a centre for excellence.

CRITERION I: CURRICULAR ASPECTS
1.1
1.1.1
Curriculum Planning and Implementation
State the vision, mission and objectives of the institution, and describe how
these are communicated to the students, teachers, staff and other stakeholders.
Vision: To make this college a centre with potential for excellence by imparting quality
education to find new paths for the prosperity and progress of the people.
Mission: Uplifting and empowering the poor and down trodden of this rural and
backward area by providing value based and skill oriented higher education.
The Vision and Mission are communicated through the college Prospectus and
Hand Book. It is also displayed on the walls of the buildings and display boards.
1.1.2 How does the institution develop and deploy action plans for effective
implementation of the curriculum? Give details of the process and substantiate
through specific example(s).
The academic curriculum prescribed by the university is followed and our college
has chosen the subjects which are relevant and required for the uplift and empowerment
of the students so that they can find better placement and serve the society in turn. The
students are trained to face the challenges of this competitive world.
Regular attendance is insisted on. Inorder to implement this, attendance is taken
every hour by the staff who handles the particular class. If he is absent one hour, he loses
half a day attendance, be it in the morning or afternoon. Students who are irregular are
asked to bring their parents and informed of their poor attendance. The students are
advised to be regular for the classes.
The teachers are motivated to make the teaching-learning process more effective
by using modern methods like LCD projector. The faculty complete the prescribed
lessons for the students and give them chances for group discussion and quiz on the
syllabus. Three tests are conducted as per the norms prescribed by the University. In
addition to this, model examination is also conducted. PG/M.Phil. students are allotted
topics for seminar from the syllabus. In the laboratories, the dynamic and experienced
faculty make excellent demonstrations of the experiments.

Most of the students prepare their projects by utilising the resources available in
the campus. Students of MBA, MCA and PG Computer Science, usually do their projects
in reputed institutions/ industries. If need arises, other students seek the help of external
agencies. For weak students, remedial classes are conducted.
Some departments invite subject experts to deliver lecture on topics related to the
syllabus.
1.1.3 What type of support (procedural and practical) do the teachers receive (from the
University and/or institution) for effectively translating the curriculum and

Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
the need of protecting the environment, and find the pathway to become a good citizen
of India. Infact we are able to find a sea change in their attitude when they enter the
second year. During the second year of study, they study skill based subjects and nonmajor electives.
This gave them ample opportunity to study subjects like Personality
Development, Photography, Communication Skills, Introduction to Tourism, Hospitality
Management, Competitive exam papers, Computer, Organic Farming, Bee Keeping,
Public Health and Hygiene, Home Aquarium, Gardening, Bio Fertilizers, Page maker
and Photoshop, Business communication, Consumer Protection, Information
Technology, House Keeping, Journalism, Business English, Indian Architecture,
Salesmanship. Also, During Final Year they have the chance to study the skill based
subjects like Water Analysis, Herbal Biotechnology, Vermi technology,
Entrepereneurship, Archaeology, Marketing and Hotel Accounting. When they complete
their study, they are familiar with some skill, in addition to the subject knowledge. As
they study these subjects systematically with practical illustrations, we are sure that it
meets the very purpose of the curriculum.
In order to understand the society, ‘Extension Service’ is introduced in the
curriculum. As we implement this scheme seriously, every student leaves the campus
after three years, as a full fledged person.

Feedback System
1.4.1 What are the contributions of the institution in the design and development of
the curriculum prepared by the University?
Prof. T. Manohara Justus, Dept. of Mathematics of our college, has been the coordinator of the committee for implementing CBCS in the Manonmaniam Sundaranar
University. He visited many colleges to explain the various features of the new system. In
our college also, he convened a meeting of the Heads of Departments for this purpose.
He took in to account the feedback of our staff members before the final implementation
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 82 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
of the new system. Our Principal, Dr. S. Dawn Dharma Roy is also a member of the
committee on CBCS as well as University Syndicate.
The college as such does not have a direct role to play in the design and
development of the curriculum.
Many staff members have worked as convener/ members of Board of studies of
the University, as our college is affiliated to Manonmaniam Sundaranar University.
However, the Departments have discussed the recently introduced CBCS and sent their
feedback to the University for Appropriate Action. But the syllabi for the Career Oriented
Programmes have been designed by the faculty of our college considering the needs and
challenges of the society. Our faculty members like Dr. N. Gnanadhas (Rtd), Prof. P.
Kumaradhas (Rtd), Dr. J. Devaraj of Mathematics Department, Prof. S. Philip(Rtd) of
English Department, Prof. D. S. Arul Selvan and Prof. A. Aby Regieson Sylum of
Computer Science Department, Dr. J. Thampi Thanka Kumaran, Prof. H. G. Devakumar
Samuel (Rtd), Dr. S. Dawn Dharma Roy of Physics Department, Prof. A. Jai Singh, Prof.
Suresh J. C. Ananth of Computer Applications Department, Prof. V. Dhanabal Singh of
Tourism Department, Prof. V. Vijuresh Nayagam (Late) of Management Studies
Department served as Chairman/Member of Board of studies.
However feedback regarding the new syllabus as per CBCS was obtained from the
faculty and students and the feedback thus obtained was sent to the committees
concerned for appropriate changes, through Members of Board of Studies and the coordinator of CBCS.
1.4.2
Is there a formal mechanism to obtain feedback from students and stakeholders
on Curriculum? If ‘yes’, how is it communicated to the University and made
use internally for curriculum enrichment and introducing changes/new
programmes?
Review meetings regarding CBCS courses have been conducted and reports were
sent to the Co-ordinator of CBCS, M.S. University at the end of the academic year 20082009 for suitable action. Various departments like Mathematics, Zoology, English,
Tourism Management and Computer Science expressed views regarding the merits and
demerits of the system, and also gave their suggestions. Opinions thus received were
consolidated and forwarded to the Co-ordinator for consideration and further action. For
instance in the curriculum for BA English Literature, History of English Literature and
Social History of England could have been made core subjects instead of prescribing
them as allied. In the fifth semester, there could have been six papers as in the case of
other students, instead of seven papers.

in the interest of the students and also bearing in mind quality enhancement and quality
sustenance of the institution, as a three hour paper in the university pattern at the end of
every semester.
The faculty members attend Orientation and Refresher courses. Invitations of
Seminars received from various colleges and Universities are circulated to the
departments. The members are encouraged to participate in them and are allowed to go
on duty. Often students are also taken to other colleges to participate in the Seminars
which they feel are relevant to them.
Besides these Seminars, department and Inter-department Seminars have also
been arranged to update the knowledge of the faculty and the students. Industrial visits
are arranged for students to keep them abreast of the recent development in their
respective areas. These visits could also provide employment opportunities for the
students.
Remedial classes have been conducted for the students who are weak in the
subjects. Students who perform very well in the University examinations are awarded
cash prizes. Some departments give the Best Student Award to their students.
Certificates of merit are given to outstanding students. Teachers who produce centum
results are also honoured with a word of appreciation by the Principal on the College
Day function. The first rank holders who continue higher courses in this college are
exempted from paying the fees. The Head and members of the department where
students secure first ranks in the university are also honoured. The students who
represent the college in State Level tournaments are also exempted from paying fees.
In accordance with the recommendation made in the Peer Team Report, Career
Oriented Programmes like Graphics and Visual Communication, Visual Communication,

and claim his seat. From 2010-11 onwards, we sent interview cards to all candidates and
the Counselling System is adopted for admission to the UG courses, in which a student,
who has not been called for can also get admission if there exists a vacancy.

Is there a mechanism in the institution to review the admission process and
student profiles annually? If ‘yes’ what is the outcome of such an effort and
how has it contributed to the improvement of the process?
No. We can not review the admission process, since the admission is done as per
Government norms (CSI Minority 50%, of the remaining 50%, BC 26.5%, BC Muslim
3.5%, MBC 20%, SC/ST 19% and General 31%)
2.1.5
Reflecting on the strategies adopted to increase/improve access for following
categories of students, enumerate on how the admission policy of the
institution and its student profiles demonstrate/reflect the National
commitment to diversity and inclusion
∗ SC/ST
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 92 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
∗ OBC
∗ Women
∗ Differently abled
∗ Economically weaker sections
∗ Minority community
∗ Any other
In our locality the SC/ST population constitutes a low percentage only. So, almost
all SC/ST students, who applied, would get admission. By the reservation policy itself,
we observe that nearly 50% of the total students constitute the minority community.
Also, out of 50% of the total seats, OBC constitutes 46% among this category. Three out of
every hundred seats are reserved for differently abled students. This will help them to
enter into any one of the courses. In our college, for the past 10 years, more than 65% of
total students are girls.

How does the institution cater to the needs of differently- abled students and
ensure adherence to government policies in this regard?
The classes which have differently-abled students are conducted in the ground
floor. The fellow students willingly help them always either by accompanying them or
by carrying their bags during working days in and outside college. A ramp is about to be
constructed with the UGC grant of Rs.5 lakhs in Vethamonickam Block for the benefit of
these students. Endowment prizes are given to them from Dr .S. S. Hector Endowment
and Rev. Watson Endowment funds. In addition, proficiency prizes are also given to
them at UG and PG levels. Also, there is a separate reservation for differently-abled
students. Of the total seats 3% is reserved for them.
We have formed an Enabling unit with the Principal as patron and Prof. V.
Dhanabal Singh as Co-ordinator under the scheme – Higher Education for Persons with
Special Need (HEPSN).

How does the institute collect, analyze and use the data and information on the
academic performance (through the programme duration) of the students at risk
of drop out (students from the disadvantaged sections of society, physically
challenged, slow learners, economically weaker sections etc.)?
Each faculty member maintains a course file containing marks of three tests,
model test marks and University exam marks. The parents of low performers are called
and counseled the students in front of the parents. Remedial coaching classes are
arranged for weak students. Also, we maintain the attendance of each class in the
department. So the class teacher easily identifies the irregular students and takes
necessary corrective measures. As the teachers monitor the students with care, there is a
lot of improvement in students’ performance and the drop out rate is bellow 1%.

2.4.6
Has the institution introduced evaluation of teachers by the students and
external Peers? If yes, how is the evaluation used for improving the quality of
the teaching-learning process?
Yes. The teachers are evaluated by the students. The feedback is analyzed and sent
to the departments. The HoD and Principal give suggestions if necessary for better
performance.
2.5 Evaluation Process and Reforms
2.5.1
How does the institution ensure that the stakeholders of the institution
especially students and faculty are aware of the evaluation processes?
Communications received from University regarding evaluation are circulated to
Departments and through the Departments to the students too. They are also displayed
on the notice board. Time schedule for internal evaluation and model examination is
given in the college Handbook.
2.5.2
What are the major evaluation reforms of the university that the institution
has adopted and what are the reforms initiated by the institution on its own?
From the year 2008 onwards, the university has introduced Choice Based Credit
System. Under the new system, credits are awarded to students based on their
performance, in addition to the system of giving marks. Also, introduction of internal
assessment is the special feature of this new scheme. For internal assessment three tests
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 115 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
are conducted. Of the three, the best marks of two tests and one assignment, are
consolidated for 25 or 40, depending upon the subjects as the internal assessment. Some
of our faculty members conduct class tests periodically in order to assess the
performance of students continuously. We conduct three hour model test to all UG/PG
students before the commencement of University examination.
2.5.3 How does the institution ensure effective implementation of the evaluation
reforms of the university and those initiated by the institution on its own?
As per the new evaluation system, the department conduct (centralised) three
internal tests following the schedule given in the hand book. The faculty members have
to submit the mark list signed by the concerned HoD to the examination committee
which, inturn sends the marks to the parents. These marks are also displayed on the
Department Notice Board. Before the commencement of the university examination, all
the internal marks are sent to the University.
The Departments conduct model test out of their own interest (through not
mandatory) before the commencement of University exam, and the students are shown
the valued papers.
2.5.4
Provide details on the formative and summative evaluation approaches
adopted to measure student achievement. Cite a few examples which have
positively impacted the system.
Home assignments, weekly tests, questioning sessions, besides the three unit tests,
are some of the formative evaluation approaches. By analyzing the performance of the
students, the teacher comes to know, how much the student has grasped in the subject.
These approaches also help to assess the strength and weakness of the teaching-learning
process and enable the teacher to effect changes in teaching, if necessary. Besides sending
the progress reports for the unit tests to the parents, the performance of the students in
the evaluation approaches mentioned above, are informed to the parents in parents’
meeting arranged every semester.
At the end of every semester, model examinations are conducted and the
university question papers for the previous years, are also discussed inorder to prepare
them for the forth coming university examinations. The students who do not pass in the
examination are asked to bring their parents inorder to discuss what best could be done
to improve the performance of such students.

and performance of students through the duration of the course/programme?
Provide an analysis of the students results/achievements (Programme/course
wise for last four years) and explain the differences if any and patterns of
achievement across the programmes/courses offered.
Tests are conducted at regular intervals and marks are sent to parents. The parents
of students whose performance is unsatisfactory are called and informed of their wards’
performance. Students are encouraged to work hard. Remedial classes are conducted to
students who are weak in the subjects. Assignments are also given to evaluate their
performance. The marks of all the three internal tests and model test are sent to the
parents regularly.
We list the achievements and results of students for the past four years.

Due to our consistent effort we are able to maintain the number of University
ranks above fifty. We have been taking sincers efforts to improve the performancc of
students. As a result, we are able to achive more number of 100% results (in seven
courses) during academic year 2011-2012.
2.5.6
Detail on the significant improvements made in ensuring rigor and
transparency in the internal assessment during the last four years and
weightages assigned for the overall development of students (weightage for
behavioral aspects, independent learning, communication skills etc.
As per the Choice Based Credit System introduced by the affiliating University in
2008, 25 marks is for internal assessment. For UG and PG students 5 marks is assigned
for assignment and 20 mark is assigned for internal test till the academic year 2011-2012.
We conduct three tests out of which, the average of best two tests is taken into account.
The internal assessment mark is displayed on the notice board, counter signed by the
Head of the Department. Corrections if any, can be brought to the nitice of the concerned
teacher. Occasionally, there arises careless mistakes while preparing internal assessment
marks. It will be rectified promptly by the concerned teacher. As such, there is no dissatisfaction among the students in this regard. The internal assessment question paper is
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 126 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
prepared on University pattern and the teachers evaluate the answer sheets strictly &
promptly and point out the mistakes if any committed by the students. This improves the
performance of the students in the University exam it makes the students to score high
percentage of marks. Also, this process helps them to understand the subject thoroughly.
While evaluating assessments, we give 50% weightage to the theme, 25% weightage to
presentation and 25% weightage to coherency. These practices help in a lot in
understanding the theme of problem and improve ones writing skill. We give full credit
to the students while evaluating the internal assessment test papers, if one writes the
solution differently. This encourages the students to improve their creative and critical
thinking. From the academic year 2012-13 onwards, the pattern of awarding internal
marks to PG students is changed. As per the new system, 4 marks for assignment, 6
marks is for seminar and 15 marks for test. While assessing the seminar, we give 75%
weightage to subject knowledge and 25% for communication skill. This allows the
students to gather more subject knowledge and improve their communication skill. As
we conduct the process of internal assessment in good spirit, the students have benefited
much right from the introduction of the new system. Also, it creates a competition
among the students, and allows them to maintain a consistently good academic record.
2.5.7
Does the institution and individual teachers use assessment/evaluation as an
indicator for evaluating student performance, achievement of learning
objectives and planning? If ‘yes’ provide details on the process and cite a few
examples.
Yes. The test schedules are given in the diary which is given to the students at
the beginning of every semester. The students are encouraged to attend all the tests and
the average of two tests is taken into account. If their performance is not satisfactory or if
they fail to take the tests due to illness or some other valid reasons, re-tests are given.
Assignment topics are given well in advance and the students are given full marks if they
have done well. If the students fail to take the tests or perform badly and do not submit
the assignment, they have to repeat the tests in the next semester.
Students who perform very well are given full marks for internal assessment
(25/25). Apart from these, students are encouraged to conduct seminars and groupdiscussions and quiz in the prescribed syllabus. This helps students to gain confidance
and enables the teachers to assess the students’ understanding of the subjects.

2.5.8 What are the mechanisms for redressal of grievances with reference to
evaluation both at the college and University level?
Grievances regarding the Internal Assessment are redressed immediately. If there
is any grievance regarding the university examinations, the revaluation process is
followed for redressal. Weak students are given extra coaching.
2.6 Student performance and Learning Outcomes
2.6.1
Does the college have clearly stated learning outcomes? If ‘yes’ give details on
how the students and staff are made aware of these?
Learning Outcomes:
1. To understand and apply fundamental concepts of the discipline.
2. Communicate effectively both orally and in writing.
3. Have an inclination towards research.
4. Have a spirit of working together.
5. Respect persons from diverse cultures and backgrounds – to become tolerant and
broadminded and humane.
2.6.2
How are the teaching, learning and assessment strategies of the institution
structured to facilitate the achievement of the intended learning outcomes?
By giving seminar and by making class room assessment, samples of student
work from various classes are obtained and used to assess the expectations and
limitations of students.
By exit interviews, data is obtained to assess strength and weakness of a
programme.
Carefully planned discussions among homogeneous groups are conducted and
their experiences and responses are used for analysis. Performance expectation is to be
made explicit prior to obtaining results.
2.6.3 What are the measures/initiatives taken up by the institution to enhance the
social and economic relevance (quality Jobs, entrepreneurship, innovation and

To gain understanding and assimilation of the subject leading to the application of
what is learning.
To become humane citizens.
Any other relevant information regarding Teaching-Learning and Evaluation which
the college would like to include.
Conducting Quiz competitions in the syllabus prescribed is a new feature in the
teaching-learning process. In addition to this, the students are enabled to gain firsthand
knowledge of the subject by way of visits to industries, companies, laboratories,
aquariums, nurseries, libraries, studios, radio stations, press etc. Students of MBA have
access to 10 e-journals, in addition nearly 3800 journals can be accessed by using
INFLIBNET. The progress reports, sent to parents after each test, carry not only the
marks of their wards, but the performance of all the students of the class. This enables the
parents to assess the place of their wards in the class. The department of Physics
conducts open book test. Attendance registers are maintained for all classes in every
department. Attendance is also maintained in the office. This enables the faculty and the
Principal to monitor the regularity of the students. Late and leave registers are also
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 129 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
maintained for students in the departments to emphasize the importance of being
punctual and regular.
As per the suggestion of the NAAC Peer Team, teaching plan has been prepared
by the faculty at the beginning of every academic session. Regular department meetings
are held to confirm whether the lessons are taught as per the plan. The Heads of
Departments brief the performance of the staff in the Staff Council convened by the
Principal.
In response to the suggestion of the Peer Team, the Departments conduct
Remedial Classes for weak students. In some departments like, English, the faculty spend
time with the weak students outside class hours to help them with their lessons. This
makes them optimistic and confident and urges them to work still harder.
After the accreditation, the faculty of self-financing courses are also encouraged
and allowed to participate in refresher courses, orientation programmes, seminars, paper
presentation, doing Ph.D. etc. as in the case of teachers of aided courses.
Under CBCS, students have internal assessment. Regular tests and assignments
are given to students and their performances are sent to their parents.
The students have a paper on Environmental studies. It is a common paper for all
the first year students. The students are asked to conduct seminars on the challenges and
dangers of Environmental pollution. This creates awareness among students and makes
them more responsible. Besides this, students are divided into groups and are
encouraged to read news everyday in the first hour in some departments. This instils the
habit of reading newspaper daily and makes them familiar with the current events.
Newspapers are bought at reduced prize for the benefit of students.
Besides lecture method, the faculty use audio visual aids. They make LCD
presentation. Students are also encouraged to use them while conducting seminars.
Students conduct Quiz programmes on the prescribed subjects, under the supervision of
the staff. This is a regular feature in the English Department. There are quiz programmes
on general topics in English literature too.
The Group Discussion makes all the students participative in the session. This
helps to learn from the quick learners and also to put forth their own points. As the
students have internal assessments, absentees due to ill health and low performers are
given chances to do retests. In part-II English, out of the three tests for internal
assessments, one is to test the competency of the students in Spoken English.

Dr. T. F. Abbs Fenn Reji
Abstract:
Marine organisms are a rich source of bioactive compounds, a majority of which
contain heterocyclic rings. In 1980, a cytotoxic marine alkaloid dendrodoine was isolated
from the marine tunicate, Dendrodoa grossularia. The unusual compound is a 3-(3dimethylamino-1,2,4-thiadiazol-5-oyl) indole being the only known 1,2,4-thiadiazole-ring
containing natural product; either terrestrial or marine. Our laboratory has a long
standing interest in aminothiadiazoles and aminothiazoles and this interest has led to the
hypothesis that thiazoloylindoles may also show interesting bioactivity as thiazoles
exhibit a well-established spectrum of bioactivity. Therefore, the synthesis of several
analogs of dendrodoine has now been attempted in a combinatorial sense by replacing
the 1,2,4-thiadiazoloyl moiety by a thiazoloyl unit and placing a variety of hetaryl units
instead of the indolyl moiety in dendrodoine. The present work describes the synthetic
strategy adopted for obtaining such thiazole analogs of dendrodoine, their structure
assignment and the preliminary result of the bioactivity studies on these analogs. The
cytotoxicity screening is currently underway.
Conclusion:
In summary, practical synthetic routes to a new set of thiazole analogs of
dendrodoine have been established. Several new (2-aminothiazol-5-oyl) heterocycles
have been prepared as examples of dendrodoine analog. These compounds are under
anticancer activity screening at National Cancer Institute, USA. The structure of all the
compounds prepared has been established using elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, 13C
NMR, Eims and FAB Mass data. Part of the work presented herein has been presented in
two national level conferences.

Let G = (V, E) be a graph without isolated vertices. A set S ⊆ V is a total dominating
set of G, if every vertex u ∈ V is adjacent to an element of S. Let t (W1,n , i) be the
family of total dominating sets of a wheel W1,n with cardinality i. Let dt (W1,n , i) be the

Dt(W1,n ,x) and its coefficients. Also, we calculate the total domination polynomial of
generalized wheels Wm,n = m+ Cn, as Dt (Wm,n , x) = [ (1+x)n -1] [ (1+x)m -1] + Dt (Cn,

Abstract
The concept of continuous monotonic decomposition (CMD) was introduced by
Paulraj Joseph and Gnanadhas. A graph G of size = ( ₂+1) is said to have a CMD if G can
be decomposed into n-subgraphs G1, G2,….., Gn such that each Gi is connected and
1E(Gi)1 = i for 1≤ I ≤ n-1. Let G1 = (V1, E1) and G2 = (V2, E2) be two graphs. The tensox
product G = G1 ∧ G2 is defined as a graph with vertex set V1 x V2. Edge set is defined as
follows. If w1 = (u1, v1) and w2 = (u2, v2) are two vertices of G with ui ∈ v1 and ui ∈ v2, (i =
1, 2) then w1 w2 ∈ E (G) if and only if u1 u2 ∈ E1 and v1 v2 ∈ E2. In this paper, we
investigate CMD for some special class of graphs, Data namely Pn ∧ K2, Cn ∧ K2, K1, n ∧ K2
and Wn ∧ K2.

VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY
- A KEY FOR SUCCESSFUL SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
Abstract: Vendor Managed Inventory popularly known as VMI is gaining
momentum in the modern digital era. VMI is a distinctive and successful process in
the supply chain to manage and replenish merchandise at the store of the customer
by the vendor. In VMI, the vendor tracks the number of products shipped to
warehouses, distributors and retail outlets of customers using EDI. Products are
automatically replenished when supplies run low, and goods are not despatched to
the customer destination unless they are needed, consequently lowering the
inventory at the customer’s stores. Suppliers and customers use written contracts to
determine the frequency of replenishment, mode of despatch, payment terms etc.

VMI is not a perfect solution to inventory problems, irrespective of the fact that
today’s managers are forced to bring down costs, increase service and build
relationship with suppliers. There is no better solution that VMI to do all three of
these at once and with little risk.
CONCLUSION
VMI is not a perfect solution to inventory problems. Susen Cohen Kulp, a researcher at
Harvard University, recently finished a study on the relationship between VMI systems
and higher profits. Not surprisingly, she feared that VMI implementation does not
always bring better results than a traditional supplier relationship. She has opined that
information precision and reliability combined with an effective sharing mechanism are
the key factors in obtaining higher supply chain profits. Irrespective of the fact that
today’s managers are forced to bring down costs, increase service and build relationship
with suppliers. There is no better solution that VMI to do all three of these at once and
with little risk.
Impact of Leverages on Profitability
A case study on Coramondal Fertilisers Ltd.
Abstract:
The term ‘leverage’ may be defined as the percent of change in one variable by the
percent of change in some other variable or variables. In finance, the term leverage is
used to describe the firm’s ability to use fixed cost assets or funds; the former is
popularly known as ‘operating leverage’ and the latter is known as ‘financial leverage’.
Greater of these leverages means higher the returns to the equity shareholders. This
paper focuses on the impact of operating and financial leverages on the profitability of
Coramandal Fertilisers Ltd, a leading fertiliser manufacturing firm from South India.
Conclusion
There is a huge potential for growth in fertiliser industry in India. It is estimated
that the agricultural sector’s contribution to India’s GDP is just 22 percent and more than
60 percent of Indian population depends on agriculture. Moreover, the growth of the
Indian agriculture is also less than 5 percent for over decades. A recent report by the RBI
emphasised that for the Indian economy to maintain its growth momentum on a
sustained basis, the farm sector would have to play a vital role, and needless to say, the
contribution of fertilizer industry to the agricultural sector is crucial to achieve such a
growth.
Scale of production is important to satisfy such a huge demand. Expansions,
mergers and acquisitions can bring operating leverage, thereby reduces the cost of
production and with the easy and cheaper loans available, CFL can also use the financial
leverage effectively thereby increase the earnings to the shareholders. When both these
operations are carried out successfully sky is the limit for the growth of CFL.
Corporate Branding The new Global Trend
Abstract:
In an era of globalisation, corporate brand is the biggest asset of any company. Mass
production and distribution of modern business have led to a proliferation of products
across the world which makes it very difficult for the consumers to make a choice among
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 161 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
the large number of products and services. In such situations, strong brands can make a
differentiation between similar products and consumers can use corporate brand as a
mechanism to make purchase decisions.
In a globalised business environment, the biggest battle is to deal with the less
favourable perception about the home country, while at the same time proving that the
brand does meet the standards expected of an international brand. It doesn’t matter how
big a company is at home, but going global vis-à-vis establishing a global corporate
brand is a different ballgame. Surprisingly not a single Indian brand figures in the list of
top 100 global brands. This is not because that the Indian companies do not want to build
brands but they have never felt the need for it. In the pre-liberalisation period, the
economy was well protected, so companies didn’t need brands to pull the customers. It’s
high time for the Indian corporate to engage in brand building exercise so as to face their
international competitors and to extend their businesses beyond Indian boundaries.
Conclusion
Corporate brand is a business asset, which can – and should – be managed overtime in
the same manner as any other long-term asset. It is potentially a strong tool for realigning a corporate strategy and ensuring that the corporation, regardless of industry
and size, can leverage on the untapped internal and external sources. As Klenin (2001)
suggests, “brand builders are the new primary producers in our so-called knowledge
economy.”
It is important to note that the corporate brand’s role never disappears. It remains
the standard which the company upholds. It is something that should stand the test of
time. Of course, it should be tweaked as marketplace changes for a very long period.
During that time, CEOs may come and go, management will change, the investment
climate will change, products and services will change. If the corporate brand is the focal
point, the company will ride all those waves and becomes even stronger overtime.
Therefore, a well-drafted and professionally managed corporate branding strategy and
the implementation plan can help to drive profitability and shareholders’ value aligning
the interest of the stakeholders, the management and the company.
Financial Distress and Turnaround Management
- A Case Study on Essar Steel Ltd.
Abstract:
Steel is a cyclical industry. The global downturn in late 90s was, however, one of the
worst witnessed by the steel industry in India. Essar Steel Ltd (ECL), a flagship steel
maker of Essar group has suffered huge losses during the period 1998-99 to 2001-02 as a
result of this downturn, is now smooth sailing thanks to the effective turnaround
strategies adopted by the management. In this paper, the author has made an attempt to
study the impact of financial distress and the subsequent turnarounds of ESL with the
help of three key financial indicators, viz. liquidity, leverage and solvency.
Conclusion
To make successful turnaround of a firm from deep financial distress is not an easy job.
It’s a hard hitting and painstaking effort. It requires an all-round and valiant effort of all
the people involved in it, the managers, employees and all the other stakeholders.

turnaround is like an adventures journey to the Mt Everest during the dull winter season.
Exactly, the same thing happened in Essar Steel. From a huge loss of Rs.19000 million in
2001-02 to Rs.6000 million profit just in three years is really laudable.
With such a turnaround, the Ruia group, who run the Essar companies, is now
happy to continue riding the economic growth story. They are now busy drawing on the
lessons they have learnt from the turbulent problem years. The mission this time is clear:
no tall talk, just focus on performance. Today, the Essar group is busy putting in place a
detailed plan on the steel front, which would see it consolidate its position in the
industry. On the anvil is the move to hike steel capacity at Hazira to 4.6mtpa from the
present level of 2.4mtpa. Alongside, the group is buying out the 51 per cent Stemcor
stake in Vizag based joint venture Hy-Grade Pellets and 100 per cent stake of Stemcor in
Steel Corporation of Gujarat. This expansion and stake buys will help them integrate the
steel operations and also bring down the cost of production substantially. With things
have only just begun looking up, there’s a lot of work still to be done; a lot…to meet the
huge demand for the steel items in the ensuring years. It’s more appropriate to conclude
this paper with the remarks made by Mr. Prashant Ruia, director of Essar steel recently,
“There’s nothing sexy, nothing grand, just consolidate and grow the existing businesses.
That’s the game plan.”
Liquidity, Risk and Profitability Analysis
A Case Study of Madras Cements Ltd.
Abstract
Abstract:
One of the most important areas in day-to-day management of a firm is to deal
with the management of the working capital. It is concerned with the adequacy of
current assets as well the level of risk posed by current liabilities. It is a discipline that
seeks proper policies for managing current assets and liabilities and practical techniques
for maximising the benefits from managing working capital.
A firm should maintain adequate level of working capital to meet the current
obligations and maintain uninterrupted business operation. It should ensure that it does
not suffer from lack of liquidity. The failure of the firm to meet its obligations due to lack
of sufficient liquidity is highly risky as it will result in bad credit image, loss of creditors’
confidence, high-cost emergency borrowing, unnecessary legal battles or even closure of
the firm. At the same time, if the level of working capital is more, holding cost of current
assets would be more, again would badly affect the profitability. In other words, the
working capital should not be either too high or too low.
In connection with the trade-off between liquidity, risk and profitability, a firm
can adopt three types of working capital policies: Conservative policy, Aggressive policy,
and Moderate policy.
A poor or below average profitability situations can be changed, but, not unless
effective working capital management practices are established. It is because, though the
firm is profitable, but illiquidity persists for a long time may leads to insolvency and may
lead to closure of the firm.
Based on these theoretical backgrounds, a modest attempt has been made to study
the liquidity, profitability and risk trade-off of Steel Authority of India Ltd. Statistical

tools such as average, standard deviation, coefficient of variation, Spearman’s rank
correlation, and student’s t-test are used for the purpose of the study.
Conclusion
The boom in the construction industry has opened the opportunity for the cement
industry for expansion and modernisation, resulting in huge capital investments by the
cement manufacturing firms. Since the amount and risk involved in capital investment
decisions are very high, the firms normally concentrate mainly on it, leaving little
importance to the working capital management. No sooner or later, the Russian, Ugrian
and Chinese cement will be in the Indian market at a highly competitive price, by that
time the trends will reverse from the present situation. It is the right time for Madras
Cements Ltd also to formulate certain policies to control the working capital so as to
meet any sort of financial distress which may occur in future.
Relevant Costs for Outsourcing Decisions
Introduction:
Managers use accounting information extensively in making decisions. They use
other data as well like marketing and manufacturing data etc., but cost and price data,
supplied by the accounting system, are important in most decisions. Relevance is one of
the key characteristics of good management accounting information. This means that
management accounting information produced for each manager must relate to the
decisions which he/she will have to make.
Conclusion:
Making the decisions regarding outsourcing is not easy, but managers can feel
comfortable that they have made them correctly by following the decision-making frame
work. Note that no analysis of whether to produce or outsource is complete without
considering the status-quo: the current net benefits from the resources being used by the
potentially dropped production unit. For e.g., computing how much can be saved by
dropping an unprofitable unit is not adequate, managers must also must consider
whether the recovered resources can be used more profitably. A final decision, no doubt,
mainly depends upon the practical situations managers face every time.
‘Miles to Go’
A Study on Global Competitiveness of
Indian Manufacturing Sector
Take a pan with some water. Put a frog in it and start heat the pan. The frog will
never realise that with the rise in temperature it is nearing its death, but, if you put the
frog in a pan of hot water, it will jump at once. Indian industries are also in the similar
situation. The LPG has given a big blow to the Indian industries. Few reacted quickly,
woke-up and excelled in their performance; few have taken the liberalisation as a great
opportunity to expand their operations beyond Indian boundaries; few have done still
better with a strategy of establishing places of businesses outside India. What about
others? What are the barriers?
On the record of the past three years of the performance of the Indian
manufacturing sector, the best that can be hoped for is that we will continue to muddle

through. That translates into a GDP growth rate of 7 plus per cent in the next
quinquennium, no more. That isn’t bad going, by our modest standards, but isn’t going
to be enough to absorb the 8 million who enter the employment market every year and
isn’t enough to ensure that the curse of absolute poverty will be abolished in another
couple of decades? The questions remain!

Conclusion
The economic reform 3.0 is doing well, no doubt. But, the question threads its way
through all these problems is whether the government, cobbled together by an untidy
coalition, never ending opposition from leftists, has the sense of purpose and will power
to address the many problems that cry out for attention. On the record of the past three
years of the performance of the Indian manufacturing sector, the best that can be hoped
for is that we will continue to muddle through. That translates into a GDP growth rate of
7 plus per cent in the next quinquennium, no more. That isn’t bad going, by our modest
standards, but isn’t going to be enough to absorb the 8 million who enter the
employment market every year and isn’t enough to ensure that the curse of absolute
poverty will be abolished in another couple of decades. At the current level, will the
dream of our President Dr. Abdul Kalam ‘vision 2020’ be a reality? The questions remain.
To conclude, let me recall few lines of the famous poem written by Robert Frost:
-
The woods are lovely, dark, and deep,
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
Can India surpass China?
Abstract:
India and China are the two most talked about Asian economies today in terms of
economic growth, but apparently, both have resorted to different models for their
growth. Both are seen today as the key drivers of the world economy. Both are the
attractive destinations of the world for foreign direct investment (FDI). But, the FDI
inflows into India as compared China were less than 10 per cent. Why there is a huge
gap? The answer lies on many ‘differences’ that distinguish the two countries. This article
highlights the comparative study of both the models and also the differences to link it to
our basic premise of understanding the contribution of FDI to the economic development
of both countries.
Conclusion
It is observed that India has an opportunity to attract FDI of over $15 billion a year
over the next five years. The Economist Intelligence Unit, evaluating business
environment in 60 countries for the period 2002-2006, has ranked India 41st, ahead of
China at 42nd. More importantly, India has moved up five notches from its rank in the
earlier period (1997-2001), while China has remained at 42. But leveraging this calls for

leadership and vision to rise above parochial political interests to work across party lines,
serving broader national interests.
No doubt, India and China are countries of enormous importance and
opportunity. Both face distinctive challenges when it comes to attracting investment from
abroad. To date, China has succeeded in attracting a diverse range of FDI in an
unprecedented fashion. India, although behind in real number terms, also offers huge
investment opportunities. Moreover, in the long run, India’s history of individual liberty
and social diversity will position it well to reap economic benefits in an increasingly
liberalised world.
As economic barriers continue to fall, the government must be ready to take the
steps necessary to revitalize the economy, making India magnet for foreign investment,
improving productivity and adopting new technologies. If such a transparent action is
initiated by the Indian Government, no doubt, India will soon surpass China.
Is It Volume or Value?
Few Issues of the Bottom Line Rural Market
Abstract:
Many Indian incorporates and multi-national companies, since 1991, targeted
India's urban middle class to earn revenues. Gradually, as they reached the saturation
point satisfying the market size of 300-400 million people, they penetrated into the rural
markets, the bottom of the pyramid (BOP). The volume has grown over the years, but not
with value. Moreover, they concentrated mostly one the rural cities and towns and till
date the real rural India is out of their reach. This paper tries to focus on few issues
relates to rural India, which make the corporate unsuccessful in creating value.
Conclusion
What the people argue and what the figures reveal make a simple point: the poor
state of Indian economy. Primary education, health and personal care, financial services,
basic communication infrastructure, local transportation, food and nutrition
management, water resource management, housing are the areas that need urgent focus
and the penetration into this bottom line requires first the real economy’s penetration
into this real India. If these basic and perennial problems are not addressed immediately,
the vision “future market’ as claimed by HUL, ITC, Hero Honda, LG et al will be only an
illusion.
Sustainable Growth Rate
A Case Study on Wipro and Infosys
Abstract:
In the present era of highly competitive environment, companies are striving hard
to earn a target profit to increase the shareholders’ wealth within a reasonable period of
time. In order to achieve the target profit, firms often make changes in its operating or
financial policies. Sustainable growth rate (SGR) analysis is an important financial tool to
fix a target growth rate which indicates how quickly a company can grow with the
internally generated funds. Analysts can also predict a company’s future financial
position using sustainable growth rate ratio as a part of routine credit analysis.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

This paper focuses on the importance of SGR and its relevance on firms to
improve their operational and financial efficiencies. Part – I of the paper deals with the
theoretical perspectives of sustainable growth rate and in part – II, the sustainable
growth rates of two leading IT firms’, viz. Wipro and Infosys, are analysed to understand
its importance and implications.
Concluding remarks
Monitoring the current situation and progress of a company by mapping its
sustainable growth rate helps managers to ensure that the scarce resources are allocated
wisely. Also, it ensures the company’s operating and financial policies go in consistency
with the sustainable growth rate and serve as valuable tools in the process of
coordinating plans and actions by combining two sets of ratios of SGR equation. The first
set includes the retention ratio and leverage ratio whereas the second set includes the
asset turnover ratio and profitability ratio. The former two ratios can be described as
policy statements of a company reflecting management’s attitude towards the risks and
opportunities it expects in the future and the latter two ratios are the outcomes of
managerial action; the end result is the overall improvements in its operational and
financial performances. In short, using the four component ratios, SGR concept serves as
the best tool for prospective firms to fix a target growth rate using the internally
generated funds and improve their operating and financial performances over a period
of time. This paper also substantiates the above arguments and illustrates how the two
firms, viz. Wipro and Infosys, have used the internally generated funds to exploit the fast
growing IT market and become successful.

Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
Infact, the Institution encourages students and faculty to participate in extension
activities like NSS, NCC, YRC and RRC. There are separate committees for these
programmes. On the orientation day, the Principal introduces these committees and
briefs their activities to the first year students. Following this, the committee members
meet the students and give them detailed reports of the extension services done by them
and motivate them to participate in these activities. Also, announcements are given
through public address system. There are six units with six hundred students in NSS.
Among them most of the members are girls. Two programme officers are women faculty
members. There is one unit in NCC with 156 students. There are nearly 50 students in
YRC and RRC. YRC motivates the students to donate blood for critically ill patients. The
extension service committee is involved in constructing houses for the Homeless Poor.
3.6.2 What is the Institutional mechanism to track students’ involvement in various
social movements / activities which promote citizenship roles?
The students construct houses for the homeless poor in the surrounding villages.
They get chances to mingle with the poor and to know their difficulties and develop
feelings of kindness and compassion towards the poor. Whenever the kin of critically ill
patients come for blood, the college encourages and allows the students and staff to help
those who are in dire need. These services help them to face the hard and painful realities
of life. The visits to various homes such as blind school, cancer centre and oldage home
make them aware of the responsibilities for the less privileged in society. They also
involve in activities like Road safety awareness, Traffic Regulation, affixing stickers on
Head lights etc.
3.6.3 How does the institution solicit stakeholder perception on the overall

Governing Board. The staff council, IQAC and the various committees constituted for
specific purposes help to implement the academic programmes. For instance, the
examination committee is in charge of the periodical tests and the model examination.
Research committee encourages research activities. The students evaluate the academic
programmes by giving their opinions on syllabus, teaching methods and teaching. The
faculty evaluate the students based on their performance in periodical tests, model
exams, assignments, seminars etc. The students ‘council also helps in the evaluation of
the academic programmes on campus.
The PTA and Alumni Association co-operate in all development activities of the
college. The Principal wins the co-operation of all the staff members. The various
committees constituted for specific purposes plan and implement curricular, cocurricular and research activities, under the guidance of the Principal for the benefit of
staff and students. The extension activities and Moral Instruction classes help to develop
the personal and spiritual life of the students. All these things ensure the overall
development of the students.

3.6.4 How does the institution plan and organize its extension and outreach
programmes? Providing the budgetary details for last four years, list the major
extension and outreach programmes and their impact on the overall
development of students.
We adopted two remote villages, one in the flood affected coastal village,
Kalingarajapuram and the other in the hill region, Pathukani. We started constructing
houses for the homeless poor in the adopted villages and constructed eight houses in
these villages. Later on, we have been constructing houses in other remote villages
surrounding Marthandam. We have, so far constructed 43 houses for the poor with the
help of NSS volunteers and other interested students.
During 2009-10, seven houses were constructed. Five hundred saplings were
planted in the nearby villages. Road safety campaign was conducted. Forty unit of blood
was donated. Also, AIDS awareness programme was conducted. During 2010-11, eight
houses were constructed. Also, road safety campaign, affixing label in vehicles, AIDS
awareness programme, Voting Awareness Rally at Marthandam, Plastics awareness rally

3.6.6
Give details on social surveys, research or extension work (if any) undertaken
by the college to ensure social justice and empower students from underprivileged and vulnerable sections of society?
Since most of the students come from rural background, the first ten days are
spent on bridge intensive course which helps the students to understand their subjects in
English. The language lab helps them to acquire the correct pronunciation of words.
Students are given enough training to participate in various competitions in many
subjects besides the literary, artistic and cultural competitions. Personality development
seminars are arranged for the benefit of students. Awareness programmes like health
and hygiene and zero waste management are conducted. Also remedial classes are
arranged for students who are weak in the subjects. Coaching classes for competitive
examinations for the students are conducted.
No discrimination is shown to the students on the basis of caste or religion or
financial status. The staff are always compassionate to the poor students and are
conscious of the needs of the deserving students.
The list of beneficiaries of free mid-day meals scheme for students over the years is
evidence to the fact that there is no disparity in the treatment of students. The university
has introduced papers like Environmental Studies and Value Education which make the
students aware of their responsibility to the society. The Moral Instruction classes are
also helpful in moulding the personality of students. The students and the staff are
motivated to help the poor and needy, and to contribute liberally for extension activities
like construction of houses for the poor, and the treatment of poor cancer patients, blind
children and flood victims, AIDS infected children etc. The students are trained in NSS
and NCC to become socially responsible, kind hearted and sympathetic citizens.
3.6.7
Reflecting on objectives and expected outcomes of the extension activities
organized by the institution, comment on how they complement students’
academic learning experience and specify the values and skills inculcated.
The involvement of students in house construction work inculcates social concern
and social value, and make them to understand the skill in building construction also.
Blood donation makes them understand and share the difficulties of others. AIDS
awareness, plastic awareness etc. teach them the importance of protecting the
environment. The understanding of the social problems helps them to become good
citizens.

Describe the efforts made by the institution to facilitate entrepreneurial skills,
among the students and the impact of the efforts.
The MBA and BA Economics students have a paper on entrepreneurship and the
students are made aware of the various opportunities for self employment. They are also
acquainted with the self employment schemes of the government. Prof. A. JayaPaul of
Economics department was the resource person in the seminar on “Entrepreneurship”
during 2010-11, organized by the department of Management Studies. The training
programmes like Bridal Make-up, Bouquet making, DTP and Tally give them chances for
self employment though in a small way.

Enumerate the policies and strategies of the institution which promote
participation of students in extracurricular and co-curricular activities such as
sports, games, Quiz competitions, debate and discussions, cultural activities etc.
Every year at the beginning, we conduct orientation programme for I year
students. During this meeting, we elaborate in detail about the available facilities of
sports, NSS, NCC and other cultural activities. Also, the concerned committees collect the
list of students interested in sports, NSS, NCC, etc., after making announcement through
public address system. After having the finalised list, we form teams in various sports
events, accommodating them in various NSS & NCC units and include them for various
events in cultural activities.
The Department of Youth Welfare provides ample opportunities for interested
students to bring out and mould their talents. It also helps students to gain self
confidence. All the departments encourage their students to participate in the activities
organized by the youth welfare department. Every year, the department conducts nearly
50 competitions such as elocution, drawing, painting, flower arrangement, dance
(western, Folk [solo/group]) etc. Besides these, several departments also conduct
competitions and give prizes to the winners. Our students also participate in
competitions outside college and win prizes. The departments send intelligent and
interested students to participate in competitions like quiz and paper presentation,
conducted by other colleges.
* Additional academic support, flexibility in examinations
Teachers take extra efforts to clear all subject doubts for the students who are
involved in extra curricular and co-curricular activities. Also, we give extra chance to
write internal test if they participate in official meets at the time of internal tests.
Special exams are conducted for sports students who participate in intercollegiate
and inter University tournaments. The winners of the various competitions are honoured
by announcing their names through public address system and also have photo session
with the Principal/ Correspondent.
* Special dietary requirements, sports uniform and materials
The students are encouraged to involve in sports and games. Nutritious food is
given to outstanding sports students. From 2010-11 onwards, fees concession is allowed
for the students proficient in sports. We provided uniform meterials to 80 sports students
last year, partially sponsored by the state government. The government provides TA &

University, Tirunelveli and the state government. For those students who participate in
cultural competitions, the management provides necessary funds to meet TA & DA. The
concerned departments take care of the expenses of the students who participate in
competitions like quiz and paper presentation.

During the last five years twenty students have qualified at NET/SET/TET.
5.1.8 What type of counseling services are made available to the students (academic,
personal, career, psycho-social etc.)
As the teacher-student relationship is very cordial, the teachers can very easily
identify students who appear disturbed due to personal problems. The faculty especially,
the staff- in-charge spends time with such students. Prof. Philip Head of the department
of English (retired) is also a professional counsellor. If further the need of councelling
arises, such students are directed to the counselling cell. Many students are benefited by
counselling. Usually, we give counselling to students on academic, personal and career.
Some of our women faculty have attended a UGC sponsored workshop in Holy Cross
College, Nagercoil which has given them practical training in identifying such students
and redressing their problems. Hundreds of students have benefitted by the faculty of
our college. During 2011-12 a counselling Programme (FULLNESS TO REAL LIFE) was
conducted on 27-9-2011 to all the students. During 2012-13, some of the departments
conducted counselling programmes on personality development and charactor building
and also career guidance programmes. We intend to conduct counselling programme to
all students class wise and career guidance programme for the out going students from
the academic year 2013-14.
5.1.9
Does the institution have a structured mechanism for career guidance and
placement of its students? If ‘yes’, detail on the services provided to help
students identify job opportunities and prepare themselves for interview and
the percentage of students selected during campus interviews by different
employers (list the employers and the programmes).
Yes. We have a councelling and career guidance committee which organises career
guidance meetings and invited various companies to visit the college for placement.
The students who score 60% marks till the previous semester are encouraged and
made to appear for recruitment process conducted by various companies on and off the
campus. During 2010-11 Sathyam Computers and Magnum IT Services visited our
college. 400 students participated in the recruitment process. 14 students were selected
for appointment. Fifty students went to other colleges to attend placement recruitment
conducted by companies like Wipro & US Technologies. Four Computer Science students
were appointed. Also, 25 MBA students got placement in companies like “Adept
Technology, Redegg, Mediscan, HDFC Bank, JRG Securities and ING Vysya Bank. Two

International Business School, Kodaikkanal for training and placement. During 2012-13,
the III B.Sc. Computer Science students and five staff members attended a training
programme in the above mentioned institute.
The department of Management studies has a MoU with Indian Institute of
Banking for conducting coaching classes for Bank Service Exams.
5.1.10 Does the institution have a student grievance redressal cell? If yes, list (if any)
the grievances reported and redressed during the last four years.
There is no Grievance Redressal Cell. The students can represent their problems, if
any, to the Principal through the students’ council. They also have the freedom to
approach any member of the staff of their department in order to solve their problems. If
the department cannot resolve it, HoD can bring it to the notice of the Principal for
suitable action.
During 2008-09, the students council sent representations through the Principal to
the government to maintain the roads and to operate more buses to different roots. The
students sought the permission of the Principal to raise funds from the staff members to
help the student Kunju Mon who met with an accident. Also, they sought permission; to
collect money from students to construct Home for Homeless Poor; to conduct cricket
tournaments department-wise; to host a lunch to the mentally retarded students in
Kotticode. All these requested were readily accepted.
During 2009-10, the students requested the Principal to repair the benches and
desks which were in bad conditions. It was accepted and old bench and desk were
replaced by new ones. Regarding the maintenance work of tube lights, fans, speakers,
switch board and plumping, 145 requests have been reported by the students to the
Principal. All these works were carried out by the college electrician and plumper
promptly.

the capacity of the waiting hall. The Principal assured them that suitable action would be
taken. Regarding the maintenance work of tube lights, fans, speakers, switch board and
plumping, 65 requests have been reported by the students to the Principal. All these
works were carried out by the college electrician and plumper promptly.

who met with accidents. The Principal permitted to do so. Regarding the maintenance
work of tube lights, fans, speakers, switch board and plumping, 205 requests have been
reported by the students to the Principal. All these works were carried out by the college
electrician and plumper promptly. As per the request of the students, a RO plant was
establishin the campus and the canteen contract was awarded to a new person who has
rich experience in catering field.
5.1.11 What are the institutional provisions for resolving issues pertaining to sexual
harassment?
There is a Complaints Committee constituted for preventing sexual harassment of
women staff and students. As strict discipline is maintained in the campus mainly by the
discipline committee, hardly any complaint is made to this cell. However, during 200910, three students were caught for misbehaving with girl students. Disciplinary actions
were taken against them. During 2010-11, fourteen boys were caught on the spot by
faculty members for passing bad comments against girls. Disciplinary actions were taken
against them. During 2012-13, one student was caught for misbehaviour with girls, and

Nowadays getting admission to PG/ M.Phil./ Ph.D. is very difficult, as there are
limited seats only. So they have to wait for one or two years to join these courses. So
many students join B.Ed., as there are many B.Ed. Colleges are available in our District.
Therefore, the rate of progression to higher education and employment is not always on
an upward trend.

employers, to improve the performance and quality of the institutional
provisions?
From 2010-11 onwards, the institution obtained feedback from the outgoing
students of UG and PG courses. Also the students council and other representatives
represent the deficiencies in various services with the Principal. The valid suggestions of
graduates and post graduates like additional toilets in the girls retiring room, sufficient
furnitures, provision of filter water in the campus, quality improvement in canteen and
class room maintenance were accepted and implemented.
We discussed the above suggestions in IQAC and put them into action. Feedback
was also obtained from the employers – Bishop, Correspondent and Governing Board
members. The following suggestions were incorporated:
Many teachers who had not yet registered for Ph.D., have registered for Ph.D.
The teachers started applying for minor and major projects.
The teachers are using LCD for power point presentation frequently.
The staff members are active in internal quality assurance system.
The salary for the self finance staff members was hiked.

magazine. Also, announcement is made through public address system to call for
articles. The youth welfare committee involves the students to participate in competitions
like elocution and essay writing. This makes them to be familiar in writing articles.

The College has been marching towards the goal of becoming an Institution with
potential for excellence in Higher Education (Innovative and utility). Forty seven courses
are being conducted at the UG, PG and Research levels. The literacy rate of the
surrounding areas has improved greatly. Special classes conducted for weak students
enable them to complete the course successfully. Students and staff are encouraged to
participate in programmes other than those related to the curriculum like workshop,
conference, seminar& presentation of papers and organizing such programmes.
Nine Career Oriented Programmes are conducted for the benefit of students to
develop their skills and talents. Access to internet and INFLIBNET tremendously help
our students and staff to update their knowledge academically and otherwise. Also,
competitions of different types (Fine Arts and Sports) mould them to be globally
competent. The Moral Instruction classes, Value Education & Environmental Awareness
classes enable our students to emerge as good and responsible citizens. There are 75
Ph.D. holders out of which 22 are Research guides. Quite a good number of faculty
members are doing Ph.D.
6.1.2
What is the role of top management, Principal and Faculty in design and
implementation of its quality policy and plans?
The top management used to introduce new courses whenever demand arises. It
provides necessary infrastructural facilities and appoint required number of staff
members on merit from the list maintained by the Employment Bureau of CSI
Kanyakumari Diocese. It gives full freedom to the Principal in dealing with academic
matters. Under the leadership of the Principal, the staff council prepares the academic
calendar, test schedule and forms the committees, code of conduct for the students etc.
for maintaining good academic standard. The Heads of departments along with the
faculty members execute all plans in good spirit.
The management allots necessary funds to conduct awareness programmes and to
construct houses for the homeless poor in the nearby villages. The faculty members in
charge of NSS and Extension activities take necessary steps, in consultation with the
principal to execute these plans. Also, whenever, the Youth Red Cross recommends for
donating blood to seriously ill patients in the nearby hospitals, the Principal permits
them to do so. In this regard the doctor’s certificate is insisted to avoid any kind of
malpractice or exploitation.
We have Environmental Studies & Value Based Education in our curriculum. The
faculty members used to teach these subjects with illustrations and audio visual aids.
This makes them understand good values. In addition to this, with the permission of the
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 302 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
management, the college conducts Religious Instruction and Moral Instruction classes
weekly once in an extra hour. The faculty members willingly conduct these classes for
the benefit of students to acquire moral values.
The management allots funds to conduct “cultural fest” and also to meet the
expenses of the students who take part in cultural competitions in other colleges. The
Principal encourages the students to participate in more of such cultural competitions.
Quite often the members of Youth Welfare Committee and other faculty members
organize competitions successfully. Also, the faculty members always accompany the
students whenever they go to participate in competitions held in other colleges.
6.1.3 What is the involvement of the leadership in ensuring :
• the policy statements and action plans for fulfillment of the stated mission
Policy Statements:
To make our students achievers in career and life.
Active Plans:
We impart knowledge through effective and latest teaching-learning process such
as Power Point Presentation, Seminar, Group Discussion, Field trips project work and
demonstration.The Principal himself monitors the teaching – learning process by making
constant visits to the departments during class hours. He gets the opinions of the
students regarding the process. In addition to the subjects like Personality Development,
Value Based Education, we have also incorporated moral instruction classes in the
regular schedule with a view to moulding the personality of students.
The leadership executes all action plans through the staff council, IQAC, Heads of
the Departments and the various committees formed for specific purposes. For instance
important decisions are taken in the staff council and they are inturn communicated to
the other bodies for neat execution. For instance the Examination Committee takes the
responsibility of centralized unit tests and the Model Exams. Similarly the Research
Committee, encourages research activities like publishing paper and submitting project
proposal.
• formulation of action plans for all operations and incorporation of the
same into the institutional strategic plan
In accordance with the suggestions given by IQAC, the Principal nominates the
conveners and members of various committees. The committees work out their plan for
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 303 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
the academic year and present it to the Principal. The Principal goes through them,
makes necessary changes in consultation with the committee conveners and incorporates
them into strategic plan.
• Interaction with stakeholders
As per the suggestion given by the Principal, the departments meet the parents of
the first year students on the Orientation Day. Also, every semester, we conduct parents’
meeting classwise, to get their suggestions regarding the college, faculty and teaching
and to inform them about the performance of their children.
The Principal meets the faculty quite often departmentwise. Also, he convenes
meeting of non-teaching staff frequently. The Principal and the Correspondent interact
with the members of the Governing Board formally and informally. The Principal
convenes the Students’ Council and comes to know of their needs and grievances.
• Proper support for policy and planning through need analysis ,research
inputs and consultations with the stakeholders
The IQAC gets a list of requirements from each department through the Principal
every year. The IQAC members, Principal, Correspondent and HoDs sit together and
finalise the requirements. The Students’ Council in consultation with the staff advisers
decides their activities. The policy decisions, budget allocation and other important
matters like buildengs construction are discussed and finalized in the Governing Board
where the Principal and staff representative are also present.
• Reinforcing the culture of excellence
The Principal encourages the students to make use of the opportunities, in order
to develop their knowledge and mould their personality. The proficiency prizes both
cash and medals are given to students in appreciation of their excellent performance in
their studies and extra- curricular activities in the college day functions. The
facultymembers are also appreciated whenever they excel in academic or research
activity.
• Champion organizational change
The leadership is always for organizational change. The positions like Staff
Representative to the Governing Board, Staff Association Secretary, Staff Council
Secretary, the Office-Bearers of PTA and Alumni Association, Member of Senate,
Conveners of all Committees, NSS Co-ordinators, NCC Officer and Staff Advisors to
Students’ Council are not permanent. The staff members occupy these positions only for
a particular period.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
6.1.4 What are the procedures adopted by the institution to monitor and evaluate
policies and plans of the institution for effective implementation and
improvement from time to time?
Work is distributed for effective implementation. For instance, the unit tests and
model exams are taken care of by a committee and the marks for the same are collected
in another section and reported to the Convener of Examination Committee. The
attendance section sends the monthly reports to the departments to be verified and also
to warn the students if necessary. If any major discrepancy in recording attendance is
noted, immediate steps are taken to set right it.
The senior most faculty member is assigned the work of monitoring the students’
attendance. If a student is irregular, the parents would be called and the students are
counseled in their presence. Earlier, we distributed attendance booklet to individual staff
who used to send the slip to the office and the counterfoil was maintained by the staff.
For the last two years, we have modified this system. Now we maintain an attendance
booklet in each class and the counterfoil is maintained by the department, not by
individual staff. This helps the class teacher and the HoD monitor the attendance
effectively. Strict discipline is maintained in the campus. The discipline committee
members visit the entire campus frequently and see that students are not wandering
during class hours. During free hours, students are sent to the library, in order to boost
reading habit.
The students, who come late to the college, should get permission from the HoD to
enter the class. If a student is frequently late, he would be counseled by the HoD. Earlier,
the system was that the late comers should go directly to the library only. As this affects
their study, the new system has been introduced by the staff council after evaluating the
old system.
6.1.5
Give details of the academic leadership provided to the faculty by the top
management?
The management allows enough freedom to the faculty to arrange academic
programmes in order to make the teaching learning process more effective and release
funds for academic programmes like Seminars, Conferences, Paper Presentation and
Competitions in other institutions.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 305 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
The management takes keen interest in making the faculty actively involve in
research. At present there are 75 Ph.D. holders, and forty five are doing Ph.D. Also, there
are 22 Research Guides and quite a few number faculties applied for Guideship.
6.1.6
How does the college groom leadership at various levels?
The college gives full freedom to the various committees and departments to plan
the activity of the year and executes them. It releases the finance needed and thus
encourages those who arrange such programmes. As a result, all the committee
conveners, members and the Heads of Departments organise several programmes every
year. Also, the Heads of Departments nominate the faculty as class teachers and the
members share various responsibilities such as conducting seminars, association
meetings etc. These develop the leadership role of teachers.
In order to develop the leadership role of students, Personality Development
programmes are arranged; students council is formed and give the office bearers free
hand to conduct various programmes. Also, the students’ representatives are secretaries
of the associations like Tamil Ilakkia Mantram, Tamil Peravai, English Association,
English Literary Club, UG Maths Club, P.G. Maths Club, UG Physics Club, P.G. Physics
Club, U.G Chemistry Association, PG Chemistry Association, Botany Association, UG
Zoology Association, PG Zoology Association, Computer Science Association, COMSAC
(MCA), P.G. History Club, Research Forum For History, Economics Association, UG
Commerce Association, PG Commerce Association, DOMSSA (MBA), Tornus, Riveria,
Eco Club – Voluntary, Planning Forum, Social Service League (Membership voluntary).
The secretaries are elected from among the final year class representatives. The
activities are planned and executed by the students’ representatives under the guidance
of staff advisors. In this way, the students taste the leadership role.
6.1.7
How does the college delegate authority and provide operational autonomy to
the departments / units of the institution and work towards decentralized
governance system?
The college believes in decentralised administration and delegates authority to the
departments and various committees.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 306 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
Academic and Discipline matters are handled by the HoD. If it seems beyond
control it is brought to the notice of the Principal. For academic programmes like
Seminars, Association meetings etc. the institution extends full cooperation.
Review meetings are held every month within departments. The Principal visits
the departments once a semester. The faculty are at liberty to meet the Principal or the
management regarding the improvement of academic provisions.
The subjects are allotted for the staff members by the Head of the Department in
the Department meeting in consultation with them. Details regarding subject allotment

table of the college. The test schedule is discussed in the staff council and displayed in
the calendar. Circulars regarding question paper setting and submission of marks are
sent to the departments by the Principal. Any other department activity other than
regular academic work is assigned to the staff by the Head of the Department. Apart
from these, all other activities of the college are carried out by the committees constituted
for specific purposes under the guidance of the Principal. The details regarding various
committees are displayed in the college hand book. For the non-teaching staff, the work
allotment is given through the office superintendent by the Principal.
6.1.8 Does the college promote a culture of participative management? If ‘yes’,
indicate the levels of participative management.
Yes.
There is good internal coordination. Problems of staff are discussed in the relevant
body – Staff Council or Governing Board.
The office superintendent reports matters regarding the office to the management

The staff secretary coordinates programmes like Union day and College day,
through various committees.
Sports Day is organized by the Director of Physical Education in cordination with
the Sports Committee.
The Graduation committee in coordination with the departments, conducts the

If the academic performance of students is found unsatisfactory, the class teacher
and the head of the department advise them to do better. If necessary, he is asked to
bring their parents. The head of the department also monitors the work of the faculty
members like punctuality, conducting tests and submitting marks on time, and
completing the syllabus and so on. The head of the department holds regular meetings to
ensure that all academic and department responsibilities are fulfilled by the faculty. The
student attendance is reviewed by the Vice-Principal/ Senior Professor who takes
prompt action in the case of irregular students.
6.2

6.2.4 Give a broad description of the quality improvement strategies of the institution
for each of the following
• Teaching & Learning
The management encourages the faculty to adopt new teaching methods instead
of following the lecture method alone. Many departments have started making power
point presentation. The students also use this method in seminar sessions. The students
are also divided into groups and topics from the syllabus are given for discussion. At the
end of the discussion, a student from each group is invited to sum up the deleberations.
Thus the teaching learning process is made interesting and effective.
• Research & Development
The faculty are encouraged to participate in seminars and workshops in other
colleges. The departments are provided full support for organising similar activities in
the campus. Inorder to give chances for research scholars and staff to present research
articles, the Nesamony Research Forum was established in our college in 2011. The staff
are also encouraged to submit proposals for minor and major projects. Now four major
projects and one minor projects are going on in the departments of Physics, Zoology,
Botany, Chemistry and History. Some proposals for seminars, major and minor projects
have been submitted to UGC.
• Community engagement
Awareness programmes on topics such as Solid Waste Management, TB
Awareness, Voting rights, Safety of Women and Protection of Environment were
organised by the college outside the campus. Every year, we construct a few houses for
the poor including our poor students under the scheme “Home for the Homeless Poor”.
• Human resource management
The faculty members are appointed by the Governing Board on merit from the
merit list prepared by the Employment Bureau constituted by CSI Kanyakumari Diocese.
For one vacancy, three candidates are called for interview. Among the three, seniority is
Nesamony Memorial Christian College
Page 316 of 339
Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
given first priority. The Employment Bureau updates the list once in three months.
Eligible candidates are given first priority in the merit list. The selected candidates can
join duty immediately after receiving appointment order. The non-teaching staff are
appointed by the Governing Board till last year. This year onwards non-teaching staff are
appointed Employment Bureau. The Principal is appointed by the excutive committee of
the Kanyakumari Diocese. The service of the staff members is confirmed after completion
of service of two years. The teachers are encouraged to attend orientation, refresher,
seminars, workshops, training programmes. Also, they are well supported to do Ph.D.
either on FDP or on part-time basis.
Christmas gift is given to all management faculty and non-teaching staff and also
to the aided non-teaching staff. All the management faculty and staff enjoy all leave
facilities on par with the aided staff. They are also given medical allowance and the
management contributes for their PF. The management gives undertaking in availing
bank loans to all faculty and staff. The management encourages the faculty to participate
in various programmes outside college on duty.
If a student gets University gold medal, the concerned department will be
honoured. The staff can avail career advancements at the appropriate time.
• Industry interaction
Nil.
6.2.5
How does the Head of the institution ensure that adequate information (from
feedback and personal contacts etc.) is available for the top management and
the stakeholders, to review the activities of the institution?
The Principal, the Heads of Departments, Staff Representative to the Governing
Board, IQAC Co-ordinator, Staff Association Secretary and Office Superintendent
constantly keep in touch with the Correspondent and inform him of the various activities
going on in the college. Major issues, if any, are presented by the Principal in the
Governing Board and discussed there.
The Parents’ Meeting is arranged every semester to get their suggestions and also
to inform them of their wards’ performance.
6.2.6
How does the management encourage and support involvement of the staff in
improving the effectiveness and efficiency of the institutional processes?
After the committees are formed, the Principal and the correspondent get in touch
with all the conveners of the committees and give moral and financial support for all
their activities.
The instructional and infrastructural needs are assessed and need based decisions
are taken to encourage and support the staff for the effective and efficient translation of
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

academic and administrative activities. Constant meetings of the management and the
HoDs and committee conveners are a regular feature. Promotion of research, financial
support for academic pursuits, incentives for excellence in the form of acknowledging the
services rendered by the staff etc, are provided by the management.

concessions –full/partial. Many students have gone out of the institution as successful
graduates and postgraduates. Both the students and staff can remain in the campus and
pursue their work without any kind of fear like that of sexual harassment. Any
complaint, if any, received from students and staff is being dealt with seriously and
solved immediately.
The student feedback obtained regularly enables the Principal to monitor the

CRITERIA VII: INNOVATIONS AND BEST PRACTICES
7.1
Environment Consciousness
7.1.1
Does the Institute conduct a Green Audit of its campus and facilities?
The college takes care to keep our campus as a green one. The five gardens are
regularly maintained and replanting is done if necessary. There are many rare trees in
the campus and our campus is Plastic Free. We plant new trees every year Work is going
on for a Organic Vegetable Farm on the terrace. The gardeners have been employed on
contract basis to maintain the greenery on campus.
7.1.2
What are the initiatives taken by the college to make the campus eco-friendly?
∗ Energy conservation
We have started introducing LED lamps in the department of Physics to conserve
energy. We create awareness among the staff and students for optimal use of electricity
by making announcements through Public Address System.
∗ Use of renewable energy
In the department of Physics, we have installed 700 Watt Solar Panel which
charges two batteries which inturn can deliver a maximum of two kilowatt power. It is
used power the B.Sc., M.Sc. and Research Laborataries. Over time, we hope to expand it
to the main block.
∗ Water harvesting
Provision has been made to collect the rain water in a pond within the campus.
Retaining wall has been constructed near the play ground inorder to collect rain water
from various parts of the campus. This helps to maintain ground water level.
∗ Check dam construction
As the rain water flows into the pond, there is no need of a separate check dam.
∗ Efforts for Carbon neutrality
There are three pits in the campus in which the dry foliage is dumped. It is
proposed to establish a vermi compost unit here. Firewood is not used in the canteen
now. The use of solar panel in the Physics lab and the greenery in the campus to reduce
the carbon content in the atmosphere.

7.2
Innovations
7.2.1
Give details of innovations introduced during the last four years which have
created a positive impact on the functioning of the college.
Background Radiation Monitoring is done by BARC in our campus with a Solar
powered Radiation Monitoring System. The data from the same is sent back to BARC
periodically. The college acts as host institution and thus promotes collaborative work.
By using LCD and other learner friendly methods, the college is doing yeman
service to the cause of Higher Education. The linkages with the multi-national companies
by way of student projects (MBA, MCA and M.Sc. Computer Science) have made our
students more competent in the field. The Bio-informatics lab established recently and
funded by UGC is of International Standared. The college has signed MoU with the
Distance Educational Centre of M.S. University, Tirunelveli. There is also an MoU with
Kodai International Business School, Kodaikanal, affiliated to Bharathiyar University,
Coimbatore. The Moral and Religious instruction classes have been introduced to
improve the personality of students. The community services like constructing houses for
poor including our poor students, Blood Donation for critically ill patients and financial
help to the visually challenged children, Home for the Aged, cancer affected patients and
victims of natural disasters. We share the sufferings of the less fortunate students among
us by providing free meals and fee concession to them. We visit the houses of our
students inorder to know their family background and financial position. We also
provided Rs. 175000/- to two students from the Departments of English and
Management Studies who met with accidents.
We encourage the students to participate in Sports and Games by providing fee
concession, nutritious food and sports dress. During 2011-12 and 2012-13, our college

athletic team won the overall championship in Manonmaniam Sundaranar University
Inter-collegiate meet for the first time.
Regular parents’ meetings held class-wise and the Progress Reports which have
marks of all the students of that class and frequent class tests have improved them
performance of the students. This year, we introduce Counseling Programmes class-wise
which is quite different from that of last year. Also we are arranging career guidance
programmes to all out going students class-wise.
The Roof-Top Organic Vegetable garden has been launched on the terrace of
women’s hostel. Uniform for students was introduced last year with a view to bridging
the gap between the rich and poor within the campus. The fact that they will be
identified as our students makes them behave in a decent and responsible way. Due to
the encouragement of management, government and UGC, there are 75 Ph.D. holders in
the campus. As such, we have four major and one minor projects in the departments of
Physics, Chemistry and Zoology.
Solar energy is used in the Department of Physics inorder to promote renewable
energy and to reduce the usage of generator which ultimately reduces the carbon content
in the atmosphere. Every year a sizable number of trees are planted in the campus to
protect the environment. We have started introducing LED lights in the Physics lab to
conserve energy. The college office and library are automated. There is round the clock
water supply in the college as a result of the giant well dug in our land in the river bed.
The installation of RO Plant sponsored by PTA, ensures the supply of mineral water in
all blocks.
Learner friendly and effective methods like Power Point Presentation enables
students to grasp the lessons easily. The linkages with the multi-national companies by
way of student projects offer ample job opportunities.
The MoU with Kodai International Business School, gives chances of staff and
student exchange programmes.
The parents’ meetings help to build a good rapport between the parents and
teachers.
The Roof-Top Vegetable would supply safe vegetables to the hostel and also the
staff if possible, at a reasonable price in due course of time.
The implementation of uniform for all students makes the students of poor rural
families heave a sigh of relief.

The number of Ph.D. holders and the major and minor projects are indeed a credit
to our college.
Provision of safe drinking water is indeed a boom to our college.
7.3
Best Practices
7.3.1 Elaborate on any two best practices as per the annexed format (see page..) which
have contributed to the achievement of the Institutional Objectives and/or
contributed to the Quality improvement of the core activities of the college.
Format for Presentation of Practice
First Practice
1.
Title of the Practice
Effective, Learner Friendly and Goal Oriented Teaching – Learning Process
2.
Goal
To provide a conducive environment that will promote the wholesome
development of students. To identify the weaknesses and constraints that hamper the
development of the personality and the learning process of the students. To make the
students proficient in their subject and efficient in using the four skills.
3.
The Context
Mostly our students come from rural and illiterate background. Some of the
fathers are drunkards, least interested in their children. Many students have lost either
father or mother and some both who are under the care of their grand parents. Many of
them have studied through Tamil medium.
4.
The Practice
Inorder to make the teaching-learning process more effective and successful, we
concentrate on the wholesome development of the students and not only on the
curriculum.
Regarding the academic side we conduct three centralized unit tests. But we
conduct several class tests and also model examination. Those students who do not fare
well in these tests are called and the reasons found and given retests, if necessary.
Progress reports which have the marks of all the students of a class are sent to the
parents after each test. The representative has to collect them and submit the progress
reports signed by the parents. Parents meetings are conducted every semester and
informed of the students’ performance.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
Many of our students are first graduates and part-time labourers too. They are
forced to work because of the sick or irresponsible parents, who are not interested in the
education of their children. So the students themselves are forced to meet their
educational expenses. In case of self-finance students, it is a real burden for them. This is
one of the reasons for the absence of or indifference of the students in the classes. So,
extra care is given to such students. Some staff take the responsibility of paying the
tuition fee of such poor students.
To such students, in particular and to all other students too, lecture method will
not be appealing. Hence most of the departments use modern teaching methods – Audio
Visual Aids, Power Point Presentation- Literary Movies in the case of Literature students.
These methods make teaching learning process more effective as well as interesting.
The students are often asked to make a background study of the lessons by
browsing the internet utilizing INFLIBNET and other resources in our library.
First Rank holders at the UG and PG level can continue their higher studies here
without fees. To encourage the meritorious students, cash awards are given at the college
and the department levels.
As soon as the students enter the first year of their study here, the staff collect
information about each student using a detailed format. This gives almost a wholesome
account of the state-of-the art of the students. Students who need special attention are
identified. Students with deviant behavior, learning trouble, psychological and medical
problems are identified. Deserving poor students from all departments are
recommended for free meals sponsored by staff and also for financial aid. Female
students are counseled by female staff. As a last resort, sometimes they are freely
accomodated in the women’s hostel inside the campus. Parents are called to review the
attitude and behavior of students at home too.
We make students realize the ill effects of marriage during the course, as it affects
the teaching-learning process and the family situations are different from those of the
city. The performance of the students normally becomes poor. Inspite of this, students
who get married due to some unavoidable situations like poor health of parents, more
girls in the family and being in the care of grand parents are treated sympathetically. To
such students, post marital counselling is given and they are encouraged and provided
all possible help to complete their course. Discipline is given due importance in the
campus and the students easily adhere to the rules and regulations of the college with
regard to discipline.
The students are made eco – conscious. This is done by eco-friendly programmes
and trekking programmes. All these aspects contribute to the effectiveness of the
teaching-learning process. The Moral Instructions classes also help students visible noble
values and qualities. The Youth Welfare Club contributes in moulding the allround
developments of students by organising various competitions and taking students to
participate in other colleges.

The staff orientation programmes at the beginning of every year motivates staff for
better performance and dedication. They also attend short term courses, orientation and
refresher courses.
5.
Evidence of Success
Our success is the great number of first graduates and post graduates that we
produce, many of them by availing free food, fee concession, proper guidance,
counselling and so on. The results are mostly positive. The Youth Welfare Club enables
students to come out of their limited background and enjoy plenty of opportunities.
6.
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
The students who come from illiterate background find it difficult to understand
lessons in English.
Second Practice
1.
Title of the Practice
Extension activities and social relevance.
2.
Goal
To instil social consciousness in students and to make them aware of the social
needs of the people around them. To develop concern of the students for the welfare of
the society. To relate education to society and help the under privileged enjoy the basic
necessities. To make rural backward community aware of their rights and the social evils
prevalent in the society.
3.
The Context
The community around us is a rural and backward one. Most of the families are
below poverty line. They are not educated and hence not aware of their basic rights.
Many people are very poor and do not have basic necessities of life. They do not have
safe drinking water. They are ignorant of health and hygiene.
4.
The Practice
The college involves the students in various social activities in order to promote
institution- neighbourhood- community network. The students are encouraged to
become members of NSS, NCC, YRC, RRC. There are six units with 600 students in NSS.
The participation of girls is grater with two women programme officers. NCC has 156
students. YRC enables students to donate blood for the sick and the injured.
Nesamony Memorial Christian College

Self study Report – NAAC Re-Accreditation
The extension committee takes the responsibilities of constructing houses for the
homeless poor in the surrounding villages. During the last ten years we have constructed
42 houses to the needy people. The department of English contributed Rs. 35000/- and
the management contributed Rs. 30000/- for constructing a house for the victim of a
natural disaster who was a former student. The fund rising was done by organizing a
sale. The students also helped partial construction of two houses with concrete roof.
Our students and staff donated blood to more than 75 patients.
There were several rallies to create awareness among people. AIDS awareness
programme, Road safety campaign, Voting Awareness Rally, Anti-plastic awareness
Rally, Communal Harmony Rally, Go-Green Rally and Women’s Day Rally were
conducted during these years. NCC students attend Election Duty for Tamil Nadu
Assembly and Local Body Elections.
Nearly 500 saplings were planted in the nearby villages to develop the eco friendly
feeling among the people. Besides these, the staff and students are actively involved in
many acts of charity like contributing as well as visiting the Vissually Challenged
Children at Irenipuram, Homes for the Aged at Karungal and Poonthoppu, AIDS
affected children at CBH Puthery, Nagercoil, Cancer Patients at International Cancer
Centre, Neyyoor, Mentally Challenged childred at Kotticode and Tsunami affected areas.
Oneday programmes during the working days while the construction of houses
was done during vocation. Visits to the above mentioned homes or hospitals were done
during lunch break or in the evening. The students and staff spent time with them asking
about their experiences. The local support was always there in community activities like
construction. The Police department readily extended support whenever we organized
rallies or awareness programmes.
There are certain constraints while organizing or carrying out these programmes.
We always need more funds to carry out these activities. Another restriction is that girls
cannot fully involve in construction activities due to parental restrictions.
5.
Evidence of Success
Such activities make us enjoy the goodwill of the society as they are impressed by
our selfless work. We also get satisfaction and happiness when we succeed in doing such
activities. The people also encourage their wards to pursue the studies of their children
here. The students who involve in these activities go out not only as academically
empowered but dedicated and responsible members of society.
6.
Problems Encountered and Resources Required
The problems encountered are chiefly financial as we require more and more
funds to realize our ambitious for the welfare of the people around us.
