Annexure 1:

Action taken report of the IQAC Meeting held on 09 Nov, 2022



Item A

It was suggested that SSCBS should prepare a document depicting its capabilities and this document could be used to connect with recruiters and industry partners for collaborating on joint research and consultancy activities.

Mr. Deepak, Placement Officer briefed all present on the following:

– College has connected with many recruiters such as Bain and Fibonacci Consulting to create a mechanism whereby teachers and students can do consulting activities with the corporate recruiters.

– However, there is limited traction as corporate side operational challenges such as client data confidentiality remain.

Item B

Mr. Aditya Arora kindly expressed his willingness to help the college by extending funding support for start-up ventures and inputs for curriculum development. He further informed the attendees that he has been nominated as an Ambassador for a GNCTD program to strengthen the entrepreneurship curriculum being offered by it.

Mr. Aditya briefed all present that:

– He has had multiple interactions with CEO, SIIF (Dr. Ramesh Barpa) to help startups in the college.

– His colleagues joined Yuva E-Summit event to help.

– He has assured that he will continue to interact with SIIF and figure out a plan of action for effective support.

Item C

It was requested by the student representatives that the college should have a fully operational UPS system for all IT equipment, esp. the AV system in the auditorium to help ensure smooth conduct of events and activities in the college.

The AO (Offg.) briefed all present that:

– the College has been taking swift and strong steps to resolve these issues. Since the previous meeting, funding for the repair and upkeep of ACs, AV equipment and UPS has been secured and contracts awarded.

– Per current status; most of the small faults in all classrooms have been rectified and only 4 Projectors, 1 Switcher, 1 power issue in the podium and some mic filters are pending. Light system in auditorium being repaired. Rest all is functional.

– The completion report of work done will be managed only once all known issues have been resolved satisfactorily.


Student representatives present thanked the college and expressed satisfaction that work being done in this context is effective.

Item D

It was requested by the student representatives that the college should try and avoid frequent changes in teachers teaching particular papers in a given semester so as to minimise learning disruptions for the students. In this regard, attendees were apprised by the Principal that the college currently has only 26 teachers as against a sanctioned strength of 44 and is utilising the services of guest faculty to overcome this deficit. Hope was expressed that the GNCTD would expeditiously sanction the recruitment of faculty members to fill up these empty posts and provide a stable and regular set of faculty for the students.

Prof. Poonam Verma, Principal briefed all present that:

– Such issues are being faced by all 12 colleges funded by GNCTD

– This issue has been raised in EC, DU.

– The VC, DU took a stand that all colleges should release advertisements for recruitment and complete the screening process. However, the actual interviews and subsequent intake may be held only after the approval of GNCTD. A letter is to be received from DU to this effect.

– The College Roster was reworked to include teachers who have left the college upon superannuation or having taken VRS. This has been sent to the DU for approval.

– Post this approval, the proposal for recruitment would be placed before the college GB. Upon their approval, the process would start with the release of the advertisement.

– It is hoped that in the meantime the GNCTD would sanction these new appointments.

The IQAC coordinator summarised at the end and the meeting ended with thanks to all present.
