In view of the possibility of losing out on the Rs 1-crore grant that colleges receive from the University Grants Council (UGC), several city college principals have requested the University of Pune (UoP) to separate them from junior colleges. The Rs 1-crore grant is given by the UGC to senior colleges with good performance.
The UGC has earmarked this fund under the category ‘College with Potential Excellence’ but is not given to composite colleges. In the recently concluded senate meeting, many principals had pointed out that despite getting A and B grades from National Assessment and Accreditation Council, they may lose out on the UGC grant and therefore they want to be detached from junior colleges.
“The number of students increases due to junior colleges and hence there is a lot of pressure on teaching and non-teaching staff. This also affects the quality of education. The problems of senior and junior colleges are of different nature. There are times when due to mismanagement and irregularities in admission process of junior colleges, senior college principals are held guilty. Look at what happened in SP College,” said a senate member, referring to the SP College issue where due to irregularities in Class XI admission, the principal had to resign.

“It is difficult for senior college principals to cope up with the pressure of monitoring students of junior and senior colleges and also undertake research and projects, as it is compulsory for principals,” said another senate member.
UoP Vice-Chancellor WN Gade assured the members the committee would make a strong recommendation to detach senior and junior colleges and it would be sent to the state government for consideration.
