Best Practices

Practice -1

  • Title of the Practice: Swachh Bharat Abhiyan in College:
  • Objectives of the Practice:
    An effort has been made to institutionalize the practice of “ Swachh Bharat Abhiyan” at college level. Regular cleanliness drive is undertaken by different departments involving their students on rotational basis. The objective of this practice is to keep the college campus clean and also to inculcate the habit of cleanliness and a sense of dignity of labour among students.
    3.Context of the practice:
    Govt. college Kullu has about 5000 students on its rolls. The college campus with its open area is relatively small place for this big and vivacious crowd of students. Therefore, it is always a challenge to keep the college campus clean. This necessitates the practice of Swachh Bharat Abhiyan at college level.
  • The Practice:
    Cleanliness drive is undertaken on every Saturday by students and teachers. Each department has been assigned a particular Saturday i.e. first Saturday of the month for Arts and Commerce Departments second Saturday for Science Departments, third Saturday for BBA, BCA, TTM and B.Voc. and fourth Saturday for NSS, NCC, Rover Rangers and Hostels (Boys Girls).
  • Evidences of success:
    There has been a positive and visible improvement in the cleanliness of the college campus. Students are enthusiastically taking part in it. This also results into a sense of belonging to the institution in which they spend formative years of their life.
  • Problems and Prospect:

Practice -2

  • Title of the Practice: Use of Non-conventional Source of Energy
  • Objectives of the Practice:
    The college is increasingly relying on the use of non-conventional source of energy by installing Solar Photovoltaic Panels. This also serves the objective to encourage our youth to understand the importance of energy conservation and more use of green energy.
  • Context of the practice:
    Conventional source of energy are scarce and depleting day by day. The increasing electricity bills also require that alternative source of energy ought to be explored.
  • The Practice:
    The College has made a big stride in this desirable direction by harnessing solar energy. Solar panels have been installed on the roof tops of different buildings i.e. Arts Block, Library Building, Boys Hostel and Science Block having capacity of 28kw, 6 kw, 5kw and another 5kw respectively.
  • Evidences of success:
    It is estimated that roughly 25 – 40 percent electricity consumption of the college will be fulfilled by this arrangement. The use of solar energy has resulted into substantial reduction of electricity bill. The college which was paying a hefty amount earlier is now paying only the fixed meter rent.
  • Problems and Prospect:
    Further funds are required to augment the existing facility. Relying more on alternative source of energy will help us to make this planet more sustainable.
