Maharashtra: Prominent colleges to get autonomy to match global standards
In a bid to reduce its financial burden without having to compromise on the quality of education, the government of Maharashtra has decided to award autonomous status to some of the prominent colleges of the state. The state cabinet on Tuesday accredited the status to Pune-based Fergusson College, the first to get the status.
“As per the Rashtriya Uchchattam Shikshan Abhiyan, the central government has sponsored the scheme to improve the quality of education. The expenses of these autonomous colleges will be borne by the Centre and the state government with a ratio of 60:40. However, the state government has been facing a huge fund crunch. So, it has told the colleges who are applying for the autonomous status that the state’s 40 per cent contribution should be shared by them only while the 60 per cent fund they can obtain from the Centre under Rashtriya Uchchattam Shikshan Abhiyan,” a senior government official said on the condition of anonymity.
A total of 800 colleges are affiliated with the Mumbai and Pune University and more than seven lakh students study here. However, as per the global standards, there should be a maximum of 100 colleges affiliated with any varsity with a strength of 50,000 students.
“Most of our universities are overburdened. We want to cut down this burden. So, we have got two options: either division of the university or autonomous status to colleges. Colleges which are financially strong and have got the legacy of educations can apply for the status. Besides, they are getting a good ranking by the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) and other educational parameters. These colleges can come forward and get the autonomous status. It will help reduce the financial burden of the state and improve the education quality at the same time,” the official, who was part of the cabinet meeting on Tuesday, added.
The cabinet note says that the government has decided to give the autonomous status in order for the colleges to compete with international universities. “Our focus is to teach the job oriented syllabus. Besides, emphasising on the research and development and innovations. The government will provide the fund for the development of infrastructure and all-round development of students. We are have also received the applications from Saint Xavier’s college, Mumbai. We have also issued the notification allowing to set up the self-financed and autonomous universities. The government cannot take every responsibility and burden. Henceforth, we will work as a regulator,” the official said.

How to Study Efficiently in Exams?
Studying continuously for long hours is a challenge for most of us. This is the reason why most of us feel stranded during the time of examinations because we are not able to concentrate into things. The fear of examinations makes us anxious and we are not able to study in requisite amount thus, not be able to complete our revisions of the end moment. Ultimately, our marks are marred due to lack of practice. Well! Marks are important as our knowledge because they matter in the long run helping us gain admissions in reputable institutions especially, in the Indian Education System which is marks-oriented.
Though the practice of studying at the last moment is not appreciable but it is not wrong to accept the fact that every one of us tend to make the best use of the twelfth hour as we tend to remember and memorize the facts and figures at the maximum rate!

The Indian Education
In today’s world, the competition level in jobs, careers and professionalism are soaring high. With high competition and increasing population, especially in the Indian context, the young generation is frustrated and baffled as they are not able to find appropriate jobs and are also not able to develop their innate talents. Apart from this, many dedicated youngsters are not even able to fulfill their ambitions.
Well! Thinking upon these issues faced by every youth, herein, I wish to highlight upon the Indian Education System which unknowingly tend to serve as a root cause of all the problems. It is unfortunate yet important to acknowledge the problems associated with the education system in our nation.
It is a noteworthy fact that India was home to numerous educational institutions especially in Nalanda and Takshashila. It is momentous to note 2700 years ago, Takshashila University was home to more than 10,000 students across the world. Apart from this, the knowledge was imparted through Gurukul Ashrams all over India wherein not only healthy interactive sessions were held between Gurus (Teachers) and their Shishyas (Students) but the practical teachings were also promoted. Thus, our Indian Education System used to stand out from other teaching techniques.
However, it is quite unfortunate to note that in today’s world of technological advancements, the Indian Educational System does not promote any kind of practical teachings. The kids, right from the very beginning are asked to mug up the things and usually their curiosity and creativity get vanished because of their hefty schedules. Later on, these kids develop a kind of robotic mindset wherein they are programmed to pursue medicine, engineering or governmental jobs in the later stages. Ultimately, their curiosity, creativity and originality tend to die out in their future. The engineers and doctors of our nation have lots of theoretical knowledge but their practical knowledge is delimited which they tend to learn as they practice but not while they study unlike the other countries.
Apart from this, neither the curriculum as well as books of our Indian educational system are revised nor updated as a result of which they at times lack authentic information with missing facts and figures. It is surprising to note that the NCERT books based upon CBSE pattern has more than thousand errors collectively. In his way, we tend to impart unauthentic and doubtful knowledge to the youngsters which can lead to problems in the later stages.
The students these days have lack of awareness about their subjects and career opportunities available to them as a result of which their options are limited. This is major drawback of the educational techniques followed at schools. The students are engrossed in their books and are not able to develop their innate talents.
Well! I just want to bring out the fact that the word ‘Education’ is derived from the word ‘educere’ whose literal meaning is to develop the innate talent of the person. Thus, while providing the education to our loved ones, we must work for not destroying the innate, original talent of the person. Once the person develops the innate talent practically, person can not only attain desired success but will also have a bright future ahead.
This is a small effort to make the readers realize the importance of authentic and appropriate kind of education in life which does not come from books or scoring the highest in the exams but which is associated with the development of the real curiosity and inner talent of the person.

MY FIRST DAY OF COLLEGE
Since high school, I have been waiting to enter college. I always wanted to be a college student; a serious student who would decide what to be in his life. It wasn’t just my first day at college; it was the start of a journey. During my school days, I had a glimpse of college life from my elder brothers and sisters. I was most curiously waiting for the day when I would start my college life, thought that the college life would offer me a free life; here restrictions would be few and threat of teachers would be little. At last that day came. I entered the college with new hopes and aspirations. It was a day full of new experiences. I got into a new educational building, was exposed to a different style of learning and met new people.
As soon as I entered the college campus, the high school atmosphere was over and a serious period of my life began. I did not use to change from high school to college, thus, was a little scared while entering the college premises and witnessed so many students whom I did not know. At first, I was lost and confused; I really did not know where to go. I had to ask around to figure out where the new students had to report. All the new students in the college seemed to be very happy and excited for their first day. Everyone was mingling, goofing around and was having a good time. I walked down the main walkway and was amazed at the size of the campus. Grass and trees surrounded it. People were studying sprawled on the grass with their books. I walked into a big hall with chairs, tables, and video games. People were eating, playing video games, and doing their homework. I soon discovered that it was the cafeteria. However, I told myself, “You just have to be brave”. I reached my first class much early so that I could get a seat close to the teacher to record the class and meet my classmates. The first thing that every teacher did on the first day was introducing themselves to the children and getting the introduction from the students, also asking them about their areas of interest. I noted down the time table of my class from the notice-board. I found that the method of teaching in colleges is very different from that in schools. I had some very strange experiences on the first day of my college. I was truly astonished to see students playing indoor games and listening to music in the middle of the lectures in the classrooms. There is no restriction on the uniform; you are free to wear whatever you want. I observed that the students were free in their movements. They can do things according to their choice. There are no time restrictions. A student can enter the college premises at any time and leave the college premises any time. Our seniors also came to interact with us. They told us many interesting things about the institution and their tremendous experiences in the college. I got a chance to get introduced to many new people, some of whom are my best friends now.
I felt a new rhythm of life and returned home with a mixed sense of duty and liberty.
SC REMOVES ITS STAY OVER ADMISSIONS IN IITs
To the widespread joy of more than 50,000 IIT hopefuls, the Supreme Court removed its stay on the admission to the Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs). The stay was ordered in the first place because of the controversy on the issue of awarding bonus marks to all students who showed up in the JEE (Advanced) 2017 examination.
Justice Dipak Misra led bench of judges, said that the court do not want to meddle in this affair and was lifting its stay order, given on July 7, leaving various students who had already qualified the exam in the middle of the process.
The court issued a notice to the IIT examination authorities that such sorts of blunders in printing and setting question paper ought not to happen again.
Extra marks were given to make up for mistakes in two of the papers. Marks for them were granted regardless of whether a student had attempted these or not. The examination was carried out for the current year by the IIT Madras and the choice to give extra marks was taken by it.
The stay order was given after a writ request of recorded by Aishwarya Agarwal, who appeared in the exam. Spoken for by Vikas Singh, senior advocate, she had contended that awarding 18 extra marks to all applicants isn’t right.
The insights uncovered the repercussions of the examination authorities’ decision. Out of 1.59 lakh students who showed up for the exam, 50,455 were proclaimed to have passed the admission test to different IITs this year, while only 36,566 students qualified the test a year ago.
The JEE (Advanced) is the second stage of the IIT entrance tests and is carried out by one of the IITs every year. The All India Rank is arranged after the tests and different IITs are distributed to qualifying candidates.
Applicant also contended that the All India Rank list ought to be amended subsequent to filtering students who were awarded the extra marks, irrelevant of whether they had attempted the questions or not. Attorney General K.K. Venugopal said this would in fact be a twisted errand and warned the examination authorities to make no such mistakes in the future.
THINGS ONLY A COMMERCE STUDENT WILL UNDERSTAND
PAIN OF DRAWING THE LEDGERS AND BALANCE SHEET WHICH NEVER BALANCES
One of the most painful thing is when the commerce students make big accounts and waste our whole time and at the end we understand that the “ASSETS ARE NOT EQUAL TO THE LIABILITIES”. This challenge is often faced by every commerce student.
BORROWING A SCALE DURING EXAM
The most annoying thing for a commerce student is not having a scale during exam time and the reactions that teachers give them are like “COMMERCE STUDENT HOTE HUE SCALE BHOOL GYE” “SHAME ON YOU”!! Borrowing scale from friends to draw the lines in accounts just to earn even one mark is one of the favourite hobby of a commerce student!!
HIGH CUT OFF’s AND COMPETITION
You’ve heard of these things often “YAAR DU MAI ADMISSION KAISE MILEGA”, “ITNI HIGH CUT OFF’s KYUN HOTI HAI?” And things what parents says are sometimes full of humour “SHARMA JI KE BETE KA ADMISSION HOGAYA SRCC MAI TUJHE TO KOI PVT COLLEGE BHI NAHI MILEGA”
CALCULATOR AND SCALE ARE THEIR FOREVER BEST FRIENDS
It’s our birth right to have a calculator and scale with ourselves. The saddest truth is our whole life will end while calculating our assets and liabilities. Not taking bath is not a big problem but forgetting scale and calculator is one of the biggest crime for a commerce student!!
CONFUSED EVERY TIME
We come across many commerce students who have no idea of why and what they are doing. Their entire life goes in thinking about what they are upto and what will they do with themselves.
AND WHEN DESI AUNTIES ADD ON THEIR COMMENTS
“BETA 12 KE BAD FIR CA HI KAROGE? “ACHAA TU TO PAPA KA BUSINESS HI SAMBHALEGA!”
