There is specific purpose behind listing the departments. Block 3C will be automatically expanded according to the number of Departments listed here, where teaching staff details for each Department will be entered.

If there is no department in the Institution, the box meant to record the name of department may be left blank. In that case, there is no need to record dummy names, such as name of the institution, name of the programme.

Item 2 & 3 : Programmes offered through Regular and Distance Mode of Study will be recorded here. If Study Centers of Open Universities are located in the Institute, its programme & enrolment should not be recorded under distance mode.

It might be ensured that all the academic Programmes conducted by the Institution are recorded in the table.

1st and 2nd columns of the table are disabled. In 3rd Column, name of the level of the course offered in the institution will be selected from the drop-down. These options are


			Ph.D
			M.Phil
			Post Graduate
			Under Graduate
			PG Diploma
			Diploma
			Certificate

In 4th column, name of the Programme offered at each level as specified in 3rd column will be selected from the drop-down. The programmes are arranged alphabetically. Most of the ‘Programmes/Course’ and ‘Level’ for Ph.D, M.Phil, PG Diploma, Diploma and Certificate level courses are same, in such cases entries in 4th column may be same as made in the 3rd column against these levels. In the next (5th) column, the name of the discipline/subject of study will be recorded. For example in case of Diploma in Civil Engineering, Diploma will be recorded under Programme name and Civil Engineering will be recorded under Discipline name. In 6th & 7th columns, Broad Discipline Group Category and Broad Discipline Group Name to which this discipline belongs will be recorded. In the said example, the Broad Discipline Group Category will be Engineering & Technology and Broad Discipline Group Name will be Civil Engineering. Each Discipline is to be categorised in any one of the Broad Discipline Group. If the exact discipline is not available in Broad Discipline Group Name, it is to be categorised in most suited discipline name e.g. Geophysics may be categorised under Physics. The complete concordance of ‘Level’, “Programme’, ‘Broad Discipline Group Category’ and ‘Broad Discipline Group Name’ is given at Appendix-1 of the instruction manual. The options in the drop-down under these columns are suitably filtered.

Intake of the current academic year, which is the annual permitted strength of students, allowed for admission against the Discipline, will be recorded in 8th column. Admission Criterion for the respective programme will be recorded in 9th column. One of the options will be selected from the drop-down. The options are

			All India Level Examination
			State Level Examination
			University Level Examination
			Direct Admission
			

All India Level Examination is an all India Common Entrance Examination conducted for admission in one or more courses through which students are admitted to a group of institutions located in more than one state. For example, JEE is an all India level examination which is conducted for admission in various engineering courses for admission in Indian Institute of Technology, Indian Institute of Scientific and Educational Research, Indian School of Mines, Indian Institute of Information Technology, National Institute of Technology, etc. If the admission is restricted within a State, it will be a State Level Examination. University Level Examination is the one, through which students are admitted in various courses in University and its associated colleges. If admission takes place only for a particular University/College/Institution, it will be treated as Direct Admission. If, admission in a programme takes place through one or more criteria, that criteria may be selected through which most of the students are admitted.

Course Duration prescribed for each Discipline in number of year and months will be recorded in 10th & 11th columns respectively. For example, if a course is of the duration 2.5 years then ‘2’ will be recorded in column (10) and ‘6’ will be recorded in 11th column. If for a programme there is no fixed duration, but the minimum duration of the programme is prescribed, the minimum duration will be recorded in 10th & 11th columns. Under the columns ‘duration of the course – year and month’, both the entries are mandatory. E.g. if course duration is of 3 years, 3 is to be recorded under year and 0 is to be recorded under month. In case of Ph.D, minimum prescribed duration may be recorded. Similarly in case of a Distance programme, minimum number of years in which a programme could be completed may be entered.


This block is very important as block on students’ enrolment is expanded on the basis of entries made here.

Depending on the type of programme, one of the options from the drop-down is to be selected in 12th column. These options are General, Self Financing or Both. If the programme is running in self financing as well as general mode then ‘Both’ options is to be selected and in that case, students’ enrolment will be separately recorded for Self Financing and General for each year of programme in Block 3C. Paid seats will also be treated as self-financing for the purpose of survey.

System of Examination for each Programme & Discipline as specified in 5th column will be recorded in 13th column. Codes for examination system are


			Annual- 1
			Semester -2
			Tri- Semester-3
			Not Applicable -4
			

In 14th and 15th Columns, the name of the Statutory Body and/or the name of the University through which the programme is approved will be recorded. For example, IMT Gaziabad offers various PG Diploma Programmes approved by AICTE and also offers Ph.D. programme in association with National Law University, Jodhpur & Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, New Delhi.

Block 3C: Staff Information – Teaching & Non-Teaching Staff

This block is designed for recording the details of Teaching and non-Teaching staff of the Institution. Among Non-teaching staff, details of Library and Physical Education staff will be collected separately.

Item 1 : This item is meant for recording the information in respect of Teaching Staff of the Institution.

This Block is automatically expanded according to the number of Departments listed in Block 3B. For each Department, teaching staff details will be entered. However, one Table with Blank Faculty and Blank Department is also generated in this Block, which has been created for the purpose of recording teaching staffs including Principal, which are not associated with any Department.

For each designation viz., Director, Principal, Professor & Equivalent, Associate Professor, Additional Professor, Reader, Lecturer (Selection Grade), Assistant Professor, Lecturer (Senior Scale), Lecturer, Tutor, Demonstrator, Part-Time Teacher, Ad hoc Teacher, Temporary Teacher, Contract Teacher and Visiting Teacher, selected from the options available in drop-down, number of teachers in position as on reference date will be recorded. The table will be filled only for those posts, which are applicable for the Institution. Although the list of designations as mentioned above is exhaustive, if an institution has designations with different nomenclatures, information will be recorded for its equivalent designations.

2nd Column is created to record Grade Pay wherever 6th pay commission is implemented, but presently has been deactivated, where no entry can be made.

In 3rd Column, Direct or CAS, whichever option is applicable, is to be selected. Wherever, recruitments are made through both direct entry and through Career Advancement Scheme (CAS), details of teachers in position through both these selection modes will be recorded in separate rows.

Under various columns of “Number of Teachers in Position”, in the first row, Total number of teachers in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of teachers and out of that, number of female teachers will be recorded separately.

Second row is meant for recording the information in respect of teachers (out of total as recorded in first row) belonging to Persons with Disability (PWD) category. For each designation, number of PWD teachers in position as on reference date will be recorded. Number of PWD teachers in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of PWD teachers and out of that the number of female teachers will be recorded separately.

Third and fourth rows are meant for recording the information in respect of teachers belonging to religious minority category separately. Six religious communities, viz; Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jain, Buddhists and Zorastrians (Parsis) have been notified as minority communities by the Union Government. The National Policy on Education formulated in 1984, recognised Muslims as one of the most educationally 'backward' communities in the country. Therefore, for Muslims, teachers in position as on reference date will be recorded separately and information for all other religious minorities will be recorded together. Number of Muslim teachers and teachers of other religious minority in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of teachers and out of that the number of female teachers will be recorded separately.

In the last two columns, total of all the four categories will automatically be recorded separately for total and female. Although all the efforts should be made to collect the information under each category separately, if it is not available, only the last two columns for total will be filled. If data in regard to religious minorities are not maintained by the Institution, all the columns will be left blank. Appropriate remarks, in such cases, may be selected under Remarks column from the options available in the drop-down.

Thus, while entering teaching staff details following situation may occur:

Case 1 : The institute maintains category-wise (General, SC, ST, OBC) data – Entries in respective columns are to be made and no remark is to be selected in Remarks column.

Case 2 : The institute does not maintain category wise (General, SC, ST, OBC) data - Entries only in 'Total' column is to be made, and in Remarks column "Category-wise data not maintained" option will be selected.

Case 3 : The institute maintains separate data for General, SC and ST category but OBC data is not available - In such case, entries under General, SC & ST columns are to be made, but OBC column is to be left blank and in Remarks column "OBC data not maintained" option will be selected.

Case 4 : The Institute does not maintain separate data in respect of Minority - In such cases, all the columns will be left blank and in Remarks column "Minority data not maintained" option will be selected.

These cases are explained through examples in Annexure-I.

Here Entry means, it is not to be left blank. In case of Nil, '0' is to be entered. It should be ensured that all the Teaching Staffs of the College/Institution are counted here.

InIn the last table of this item i.e. Summary of Teaching Staff, Sanctioned strength for each post in the Institution is to be recorded in second column. The third & fourth columns of the table are designed to show the Number of teachers in position, who are appointed through Direct Mode & CAS Mode respectively. The figures under these columns will automatically be calculated against each post from the figures entered above. For the post of Part-time, Adhoc, Temporary, Contract and Visiting teacher, Sanctioned strength column may be left blank. Further, if post-wise Sanctioned strength is not available, entries can only be made against “All”. The last column of the table is designed to record the Number of Teachers with Ph.D. Qualification for each designation. If post-wise Number of Teachers having Ph.D. Qualification is not available, entry can only be made against “All”.

It may so happen that the existing strength of the teachers at Professor and Associate Professor may be more than the respective sanctioned strength. This may be because some of Associate Professor, Assistant Professor must have attained these levels through CAREER ADVANCEMENT SCHEME (CAS), though they are working against the sanctioned strength of Assistant Professor.

Item 2 : This item is meant for recording the information in respect of Non-Teaching Staff, Library and Physical Education Staff of the Institution. Information in respect of (i) Non-Teaching Staff excluding Library and Physical Education Staff but may include technical staff not engaged in teaching, (ii) Library Staff and (iii) Physical Education Staff will be recorded separately by selecting the appropriate option from the drop-down. Non-teaching staff have been categorised into Group A, B, C and D category as prevalent in Government. Where such classification of staff is not in existence, the information may be recorded according to its equivalent categories as given below:


			Messenger, Peon etc. may be categorised under Group D,
			Clerical/Secretarial Staff, Drivers may be categorised under Group C,
			Middle level Officials may be categorised under Group B and
			Senior Level Officers may be categorised under Group A.
			

In the third Column, sanctioned strength of Non –Teaching Staff belonging to the specific staff type & group will be recorded.

Number of staff in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of staff and out of that the number of female staff will be recorded separately. In the last two columns, total of all the four categories will automatically be recorded separately for total staff and female staff. Under various columns of “Number in Position”, in the first row, Total number of staff in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of staff and out of that number of female staff will be recorded separately.

Second row is meant for recording the information in respect of staff (out of total as recorded in first row) belonging to Persons with Disability (PWD) category. For each designation, number of PWD staff in position as on reference date will be recorded. Number of PWD staff in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of PWD staff and out of that the number of female staff will be recorded separately.

Third and fourth rows are meant for recording the information in respect of staff belonging to religious minority category separately. Number of Muslim staff and staff of other religious minority in position will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately. For each category, total number of staff and out of that the number of female staff will be recorded separately.

In the last two columns, total of all the four categories will automatically be recorded separately for total and female. Although all the efforts should be made to collect the information under each category separately, if it is not available, only the last two columns for total will be filled. If data in regard to religious minorities are not maintained by the Institution, all the columns will be left blank. Appropriate remarks, in such cases, may be selected under Remarks column from the options available in the drop-down.

If non-teaching staff is also employed on contractual basis, such option under Staff Type may be selected to record the details.

Block 3D: Details of Number of Students studying in the Stand-alone Institution i.e. Student Enrolment

This block is designed for recording the Number of Students studying in the Stand-alone Institution i.e. Student Enrolment in each Discipline.

Student enrolment in Regular Courses : This item is meant for recording the information in respect of students enrolled under regular mode of study in the Institution. For each of the regular programme listed in Block 3B, a table with pre-filled name of the Level, Programme, Discipline, Type and Year will be generated. Enrolment is to be recorded for each Programme and Discipline.

Students registered as on Reference date in a discipline under self-financing mode and under general mode will be recorded in separate rows against General and Self-financing Type. As per the entry in Block 3B, Type of a particular programme is pre-populated as either General or Self-financing. If a type of programme is both, separate rows for General and Self-financing types are generated.

Students enrolled in each year of study of a particular programme will be recorded in separate rows; the number of rows will automatically be generated on the basis of the course duration recorded in Block 3B. E.g. in case of Students enrolled in Diploma in Electrical Engineering conducted by Polytechnics, which is a three year programme, against year “1” number of students enrolled in 1st year, against year “2” number of students enrolled in 2nd year and against year “3” number of students enrolled in 3rd year (as on reference date) will be recorded. Thus for a Discipline, against each type, for each year student’s enrolment is to be recorded. If a programme is of duration of 3 years and is offered through self-financing mode only, for that discipline there will be entries of student’s enrolment in three rows.


			Type			      Year
		____________________________________________________

			Self-financing			1
			Self-financing			2
			Self-financing			3
		____________________________________________________
			

And for each such row, number of students enrolled of each category will be recorded in subsequent columns.

In the 1st year the students on roll as on 30th September of the current academic year (2011-12, in case of AISHE 2011-12) is to be recorded. 2nd year enrolment is among the students who have taken admission in previous academic year (2010-11, in case of AISHE 2011-12), completed 1st year and are on Roll (in 2nd year) as on 30th September of the current academic year (2011-12). Similarly 3rd year enrolment is among the students who have taken admission 2 years back (2009-10, in case of AISHE 2011-12), completed 2nd year and are on Roll (in 3rd year) as on 30th September of the current academic year (2011-12) and so on.

Although in MBBS course, examination is not conducted every year (generally 3 examinations are conducted), students' enrolment is to be recorded for every academic year, based on the yearly admission in the course. It is explained through an example shown in Annexure-II

Number of students enrolled for General, SC, ST and OBC categories will be recorded separately for total and girls (out of total) students in the first row against total. In the last two columns, total of all the four categories will automatically be recorded separately for total students and girls students.

Out of the total students recorded in first row, number of PWD students will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately for total and girls (out of total) students in the second row. In the last two columns, total of all the four categories will be recorded separately for total PWD students and PWD girls’ students.

Out of the total students recorded in first row, number of students belonging to Muslims and Other religious minority category, will be recorded separately in the third and fourth rows. Six religious communities, viz; Muslims, Christians, Sikhs, Jain, Buddhists and Zorastrians (Parsis) have been notified as minority communities by the Union Government. The National Policy on Education formulated in 1984, recognised Muslims as one of the most educationally 'backward' communities in the country. Therefore, for Muslims, students’ enrolment as on Reference date will be recorded separately and information for all other religious minorities will be recorded together. Number of Muslim students and students of other religious minorities will be recorded for General, SC, ST and OBC categories separately for total and girls (out of total) students. In the last two columns total of Muslims students and students of other religious minorities will automatically be recorded separately for total students and girls students.

If data on students’ enrolment for religious minorities are not maintained by the Institution, all the columns will be left blank. In Remarks column "Minority data not maintained" option will be selected from the options available in the drop-down.

If SC, ST & OBC category-wise data is not available for any Type, total number of students enrolled will be recorded in the last two columns by leaving other columns blank and in Remarks column, "Category-wise data not maintained" option will be selected. It might happen that SC & ST category-wise data is available, but for OBC category data is not available separately, but it is included in General category, then the two columns under ‘OBC’ will be left blank and in Remarks column, "OBC data not maintained" option will be selected. Foreign Students studying in the Institution will also be included as General Category students.

Student enrolment in Distance Courses : This item is meant for recording the information in respect of students enrolled under distance mode of study in the Institution.

Foreign Students’ enrolment : This item is designed for recording separate information about the foreign students (those who are citizens of at least one country other than India) out of the total students enrolled in the Institution. Information on foreign students is kept separately in most of the Institutions and they are to be counted as General Category Students for the purpose of recording student enrolment in various discipline.

If foreign students are enrolled in the Stand-alone Institution either in regular education mode or in distance education mode, radio button ‘Yes’ will be clicked, otherwise radio button ‘No’ will be clicked. In first column, the name of the country whose students are enrolled in the Institution will be selected from the drop-down.
