Font size: Decrease font Enlarge font


The proceedings of the 13th National Conference are as under:

1. Dr Mona Tawar invited Prof. Amiya Pahare to appraise the audience about the panel discussion. Prof. Amiya Pahare requested Dr. P.K. Jain to appraise the panel about the issue faced in education sector to the audience. Dr. P.K. Jain shared with the audience what inspired him to start an education system. He said about the training he gave during his professional CA tenure. 


2. Further, Dr. P.K. Jain raised the following issues and challenges related to Higher Education:


Questions Flagged by Dr. P.K. Jain:-

1. Inspite of the fact that there has been a tremendous updation in the field of higher education, there but still persists a huge gap between the actual scenario and the expected scenario? What could be the possible reason for the same?

2. Even though the place of the teacher has always occupied the most respectable status in our society since ancient time but then, also the generation next parents do not want their children to be the teachers of tomorrow. A doctor sees a future doctor in his son/daughter and an engineer would want his son to be in an engineer. Why is it so?

3. It is well said that sometimes even human rights prove to be inquiries to human. A living example can be seen in our education system today where even the slightest remark for the betterment of the student is taken as an insult by the respective student and his/her parents. Rare teachers are dragged to courts and judicially reprimanded for the same. Value system is towards the verge of Extinction. Who is responsible?

4. Even though in this time of cut-throat competition where admission should be based on competitive examinations, then also we find that to achieve the desired targets of seats fulfillment. Students are admitted 

a. Without Examination

b. No cut off

So, what is the significance of conducting the examination?

5. The relief which is provided in the form of ATKT i.e. letting the students to appear for exams “N” number of times till its clearance has made the process of regular updation of the syllabus very difficult. What could be the possible solution as regular updation of course is the need of the hour?

6. Due to technological, economic and cultural advancements there is always a need of to start new and innovative courses. But implementation of the same is an expensive and lengthy affair. So, what could be done to live up to this expectation?

7. Classroom knowledge and real world appear to be extreme which can never meet. Students usually complain of a vast difference between a   Institutional knowledge and industries expectation? Why industry is based syllabus not framed?

8. As English language is the medium of communication for the subject. We find that language is the biggest barrier even for the teachers. So, how could this problem be solved and the desired cause be justified?

9. What does quality higher education mean?

10. Higher education faces an acute shortage of faculty as well as quality faculty. What can be done to address this issue?

11. In a report of top 500 universities of the world, India features only 2 universities and that too low at low ranks. Even the IIMS and IITs have not made it to this league. Why does the Indian education system lag so far behind International Education?

12. As per the University name only teachers appointed under respective course of university can teach and evaluate the examination copies however in case of need on subject specific visiting faculty who is expert in particular subject to teach but is not permitted to examine the copies, then it is possible that the copies of those subjects which are evaluated by the teachers not knowing the subject will do proper justice?

13. Now days higher educational Institutions have become more or less like placement agencies (consultancies). The efficacy of an institute is assessed by the number of placements that particular institute has given. The core objective has shifted from imparting education to giving placements. “Every College/Institute wants to lead in this. – Rat Race” To what extent is it justified?

14. There are no systems of funding the education institutes. As the education is neither treated as an industry nor business it is not covered in the scheme of any banking system. Then, how is it possible that a good institution with good infrastructure will pop-up? At present indirect way of funding.

15. Though there are some accreditations agencies like NAAC, NBA etc for regulating and monitoring the quality of education, still we find efficiency that due to large size of regulation is deteriorating.  What should be the possible solution?

16. As far as one have efficiency and professionalism is concerned are countrymen have always been giving some excuses about population explosion. But countries like China have always used their population as strength to prosperous & develop. So, don’t you think that it is only cause of the mentality what we are lagging behind?

17. It is a surprise that as you become senior you are away from teaching & start taking administrative jobs. So, how will the juniors faculty members benefit from the golden experiences of the seniors.

18. Do you think the system of reservation is fair? If so why? As sometimes many meritorious students loss their rights due to the quota system of admission?

19. Money is being given more preferences than anything else by the students of today. Till what extent is it right?

20. It is observed that more than 50% of IITs graduates are joining as a software professional irrespective of their subject competencies like civil, mechanical etc. There should be some kind of career counseling on planning in the beginning of higher education to avoid brain drain.

21. In India, Institutions are like IITs, IIMs, NIITs, ICAI, ISCI, ICWA etc are producing world class professionals because of complete autonomy and there legal status under individual enactment which mean that we are capable of imparting good education and producing good world class professionals, then why this system cannot be transferred to other educational institutions?

22. Present evaluation system is basically focus on learning, mugging and reproducing. It is in no way of assisting the knowledge and wisdom. There is a need of some changes in evaluation system which should include continuous evaluation system like CBSE has already introduced the system of evaluation.

23. It is surprise that as you become seniors you are away from teaching and start taking administrative jobs. The results how juniors will learn from the experience of the senior.

24. Relaxation in percentage to specific reserved categories should not be allowed rather they should be allowed with some financial assistance.

25. In present education the aim is to prepare the student as successful professional not as a successful responsible citizen having high value system? Is it correct?


The distinguished panel members gave their views as under:-


1. Dr. Bharat Chaparwal, Ex-Vice Chancellor, DAVV, Indore:

We are already in 21st Century. 

Discussed about the statistics of teachers and students in the country

Discussed about the AICTE statistics of the colleges, students, faculties, etc in the country.

Appraised the panel members about the current scenario and situation in India.

Large chunk of institutions are private. 

Institutions are divided in government, private and semi-private. The private institution had moto “service and sacrifice” but now they have “service and prosper”. 

Discussed about social responsibility. 

Policies need to be inclusive.

Private sector has done good job, they should and they are capable to get university status. 






2. Dr. Shamsher Singh, ED, Medicaps Group of Institutions 






3. Dr. N. K. Dhakad, Additional Director, Higher Education Govt. of MP 

Shared the statistics given by Dr. Chaparwal and raised concerned about these statistics are the major concern in quality education. 

Infrastructure is big problem faced by the government. 

Staff needs to be increased and the salary given by government as per VI pay commission. 

Examination system, semester system needs to be improved. 

Reservation policy needs to be thought upon. 

To get linked with all types of industries.





4. Dr. D. P. Mishra,  Advisor,  Shri Vaishanav  Vidyapith, Indore 

The courses of 2 years are being completed in 3 years.

Evaluation are not being done, copies are not getting evaluated.

DAVV will face this type of situation is surprising. 

Enrollments have increased in university, colleges are increased, courses have increased, and semester system has been introduced. These things resulted in increase in operational aspects and put pressure on examination system. 

Suggested about making committees so that examination system can be improved, evaluation panels can be increased. 

Mostly students complain about the result. 

Autonomous colleges can be made universities and new universities to be opened. This will result in decrease of load in universities.

VC should be selected based on education not by politics. VC should be selected on merit and experience. We have seen people who are selected as VC who don’t have any relation to academics and are Police Officers. 

Discussed about selection procedure of VC and Registrar.  

Praised about retention of teachers at Pioneer. 






5. Dr. P. N. Mishra, Professor, IMS, DAVV, Indore 







6. Dr. Ramesh Mangal, Principal, Shri Vaishanav Commerce College

UGC has published 12th Guidelines and book on education scenario. 

Students have increased drastically in Indore.

86% students are studying in affiliated colleges.

Discussed about number of faculties in colleges and university. There are less number of professors in colleges than in university. 

42% students in arts, science 19.3%, management 17.8%, medicine 3.48%; engineering 10.3% are studying.

Universities are only confined now in taking examination and how to finish the evaluation. 

University load should be decreased by taking unified examination. This would lead to timely result and examination. 

Now the situation is so messed that we cannot say which examination is to be taken. 

Semester system introduction has lead to lot of pressure. The system should have been implemented at college level not on mass level. 

Research to be motivated at all levels. DAVV is not making the research panel members properly. 

Graduates are also getting good opportunity in placement. 






7. Dr. Rajendra Jain, Director, PIM Dewas

Discussed about several departments joining together in government to frame policies.       

We cannot cope up with scenario and the changes being brought. 

In every Institution we should frame Corporate Advisory Board who should look into the matters that what exactly is desired, what industry needs, tailor made courses to be introduced, case based learning system to be introduced. This board will advice further that where the Institution is going ahead. 

We cannot change our external environment which is not controllable like UGC, AICTE, etc. 

We can however control our internal environment. 

What students are doing, where they are going, and what curriculum is needed, etc issues to be addressed by Corporate Advisory Board. 

Students, faculty members, directors, etc should participate with Corporate Advisory Board. 






8. Dr. Anand Nighojkar, Principal, MRSC, Indore

Largely discussed about placements. 

The hypes created regarding placements are actually not true.

We should understand the problems faced in placements. 

Discussed about the gimmicks in placement figures and how averages are calculated. 

How many placements are being done? How is the placement? These figures are being asked by students at the time of admission. 

There is lot of demand but the mental blocks are present in students. They expect more than what is deserved and therefore they are left unplaced. 

Mental blocks between parents, students and companies need to be removed. 

Increased usage of internet is observed today. Job portals, linkedin, etc are offering great platforms. 

Discussed about placement assistance charges involved. Concept of pool campus is also coming up. 

Discussed issues about loss of data, data confidentiality, etc. 

Only few students are selected amongst the large number by companies. 

Suggested attitude and motivation training should be given to students and parents that UG students are being more placed. 

Suggested that courses and tie up with industries should be done. Courses should be designed in tie up with industries. The training to be given accordingly. 







9. Mr Manish Joshi, Scientific Mesh Techniques, Pvt. Ltd.

Defined students and how they are getting knowledge.

Having knowledge and delivering knowledge are different.

Students should give stress on delivery and PD aspects to transfer and deliver knowledge.

Students should give time in laboratory, assignments, projects, vocational training, etc. 

Students are largely interested to get certificates only. 

Parents are doing projects for the students who are in small classes in school.

Students who are senior inculcate rapport with teachers to the juniors. 








10. Dr. Jayant Negi, Director, Swami Vivekanand Group of Institutes, Indore






11. Dr. S.S. Bhadoriya, Director, SGSITS, Indore

Said that students are lucky to get born in today’s world. We could not get so much of resources and opportunities at our time. 

Today there are many opportunities. There are so many options after 12th. There is no such thing that if admission is not taken in IIT, world will end. 

There are multiple opportunities in front of students. 

We are weak in management and system of education. 

The problems are there in society too. 

Sense of pride was there in professionals. It used to give clarity that we need to study in these fields and achieve excellence in this field only. 

Discussed about ethical values in profession. 

Purpose of holding the post should be clear. 

Professional ethics is missing these days.

Privatization in education is welcome step in today’s world.  

Financial viability is must in education and should be long term. 

Discussed about mentorship and the importance of training under the professional. 

Professional education is different than of regular education. 

Problem is not of the infrastructure but in policy making. 

Self appraisal is effective but not always. 






12. Dr. N. P. Jain, Ex Ambassdor, Govt of India

Congratulated students of Pioneer for wonderful patience hearing. 

Discussed about syllabus. 

Syllabus is the base of education especially professional education. 

Syllabus should be carefully designed at colleges and universities. 

Updation of syllabus is very essential. 

Students should not only focus on placements during course tenure. They should have a learning spirit and develop all round development.

In syllabus framing economist, industrialist should be invited and should look forward for changes in syllabus. 

Syllabus for ICAI and paper pattern has been revised completely. 

We must give priority to syllabus updation so that students become eager learner rather than running after jobs. 

One should remain student all your life. 

Students should develop an un-official syllabus and should give time to their hobbies. 

Faculties in IIMs are sometimes less qualified than in autonomous institutes. 

How many students are reading articles? How many are actually taking library seriously? How many are using computer labs effectively?






13. Sandeep Gupta, MD, Gupta Tutorial

Discussed about virtual classroom and the need of virtual classroom. 

Should develop virtual classroom environment. 

APJ Kalam Sir has also emphasized on making learning an experience of joy and use of technology. 

Virtual classrooms are five times more effective than conventional technologies. 

Helps in better understanding of the subject. 

Enhances long term memory. Helps to cover syllabus in limited time span. 

Use of colorful moving pictures makes presentation interesting. 








14. Dr. Rajendra Singh, Director, IMS, DAVV, Indore

Congratulated students that there thinking is changing. 

We can see that professors are not after money rather they look for peaceful and quality education.

Model is not there how much to earn money. There is no such system developed. 

Education system has changed a lot. 

Discussed about the Reservation quota issue. 

Is money solution to all problems? Had this been true money would have become medicine to all problems?

We should understand that money is not the solution to all problems in education. This is why no model of money making is framed in education. 






15. Dr. V. Tokekar, Professor, IET, DAVV, Indore

Discussed about Higher education at Global Level. 

Discussed about various regulatory bodies and bills. 

Discussed about accreditations and the changes brought in recent regulations. 

Less interference of politics in education. Government is providing lot of automation to the colleges. It is the responsibility of State Government to create and develop good education institutes and should be given more autonomy. This will enable them to compete in global world. 





16. Dr. Ugrasen Suman, Reader, SCSIT, DAVV, Indore






17. Mr. Sandeep Atre, CHIMC, Indore

Discussed about Personality. 

The way students choose friends, way they live decide their personality. 

Shared a short story to the students.

Most people realize that what they want / they desire they don’t get. Rather they get what they deserve. 

If you deserve, the success will come to you. Success does not come on our own will. 

In job we focus “what” and in career we focus on “why”.

Degree cannot be wrong the people who are pursuing may be wrong. 

Personality is how others are doing in your presence, rather than what you are doing. 

Manager is one who is interested in others success not on his own. 






18. Dr. MPS Chawla, Professor, SGSITS, Indore

Said that the topics are innovative for discussion in the conference. 

Never ending literature survey. 

Result processing is difficult and lot of failures can be seen. 

Shared about different aspects of education system.

Discussed at Inaugural Session






24. Dr. A. Dutta Gupta, VP Materials, Gajra Differential Gears, Dewas






25. Mr. Jaideep Karnik, Naidunia

Started with greeting student and delegates.

Appreciated the concept of education problems raised by conference at Pioneer Institute

Mentioned that at least an initiative has been taken and discussion has started. Problems will definitely get solved if discussion is raised. 

Mentioned that lot of good positions in media is vacant. Also mentioned that there are lots of colleges opened for media in Indore. But still we are not able to find good candidates who can become good media representative. 

Good students are formed by good education.

Mentioned about TCS, Wipro to be arriving in Indore but still we are worried about infrastructure in Indore. There are no good roads, water and other infrastructure available. How will these companies come and survive? 

Mentioned about IIT, IIM and education hub at Indore – atleast 60% students should get placed and reach to the top else what is the use of being so big hub? 

Mentioned that students are aware about songs but not about the recent updates. 

Priorities to be fixed by the students. 

Students should realize that just by paying good fee they won’t become good professionals. 

Parents are complaining that they are paying so many amount of money and still their children are not getting placed. The thinking that paying fee will result in placement is wrong. Fundamental strength needs to be inculcated in the student. 

Students don’t know about the VC, Mayor, etc at Indore i.e. the current updates. 







26. Prof. Niranjan Shrivastava, IMS, DAVV, Indore






27. CA Sanjay Gupta, Atharva Business Solutions, Indore

Discussed at Inaugural Session by Welcome Address





28. Mr. Aditya Singh Parmar, DNA Times

We work from a view point of a common man.

Education is becoming a business. Still this is the biggest challenge. 

Education should not become an industry. 

Are we really preparing students to become managers? We need to stress on aspect of quality education. 

School education is not up to the standards. Students are retained by offering free meals. 

Students want only degree or knowledge – is a question. 

Three points observed by me are:-

o Higher education in India lacks practicality. In west, always practical aspects are touched. In India we touch upon only on theory and we ignore practical aspects. 

o Universities in west are concerned about social problems, real life research, etc. Research is not happening in India. 

o Inter disciplinary committee is not happening. Students remained confined in one area. Students must strive to reach satisfaction level and not on saturation level. 

Together we can and we will make a difference.
