Chandigarh, Jan 12- Haryana Higher Education Department has issued general guidelines for colleges for preparation of work load.
          While stating this here today, a spokesman of the Department said that the number of students is more than 80 that is the students’ strength is 81 to 85, a new section in the work load has been shown but there is no mention of a separate section in the time table of the college concerned. This practice clearly indicated that the work load is shown as enhanced where as no class or section as per the increased work load is being taken by the incumbents posted in the college.
          He said that similarly, in practical subjects in TDC-I, II and III where the students strength is 21 to 24 in TDC-I and 16 to 19 in TDC-II and III, a new practical group is shown in the work load where as no such extra practical group is shown in the time table. Further, if a laboratory is busy with practical groups for all the six days and only one practical lab exists then where the extra practical group is year marked?
          The spokesman said that it has been observed that the affiliating university or government announces an increase in 10 per cent seats for a given calendar year subject to the condition that no extra human resource or work load would be considered.
          The increased seats are for a given calendar year whereas the colleges have considered the increased number of subsequent years. For example, if for a year there is increase in 10 seats that 88 from the fixed intake of 80 then the next year it would have been taken as 80 instead of 88, this is also in consonance with the university norms as well.
          A large number of options in some subjects have been started by the colleges at their own levels where as per Government instructions for starting an option prior to permission of the Government is required. It was observed that in case of options and subjects, the minimum number of students to be admitted should 30 (20 in case of practical subjects) and for continuation as well, whereas the option and the subjects are being continued even when the students strength is very less (in many cases it is less than 10). This practice is antagonistic to the directions of the government.
          The subject of Environment Studies is to be taught by the faculty from Biological Sciences and Geography only as per the directions of the government. It is observed that the subject is being taught by the faculty of other subjects so as to accommodate the work load of a specific subject. The work load of theory in the subject is of two lectures for a section of 80 students per week and one lecture for a section of 80 students per week. The colleges are not aligning to this conditions, moreover separate sections are being shown instead of clubbing the sections for a total of 80 students. It is only for TDC-I students.
          The practicals in Mathematics are only allowed in fourth and fifth semester where as the practicals are being shown as ‘Maths Practicals’ in TDC-II and III and not as per the semester.
