Institutional Preparedness For NEP


In 2015, India adopted the agenda reflected in Goal 4 (SDG4) which primarily aims to “ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030. Towards this end, it is imperative that the entire education system be reconfigured.

In this employment landscape which is becoming increasingly technology-driven, it is necessary that the students rely not just on conventional rote learning but place emphasis on critical thinking. Education is gradually undergoing a paradigm shift and becoming a discourse which is multidisciplinary, experiential, holistic, and learner-centric. The curriculum thereby prescribed has to include arts, crafts, humanities, games, sports and fitness, languages, literature, culture, and values, in addition to science and mathematics.

Our College is well-equipped in meeting the demands of this New Education Policy. The Milli Al-Ameen College (For Girls) strives to pave the way to help ‘the doubly-marginalized gender’ secure an equitable access to the repertoire of knowledge. Immense emphasis is laid on raising the status of ‘first generation learners’ towards academic excellence and to accomplish that goal, financial support is offered (in the form of scholarships, College sponsorship) to students from these indigent quarters. The College organizes inter departmental seminars and webinars, which ensures exposure of the students to interdisciplinary research fields. Soft-Skill Courses like Spoken English, and Computer Courses have been introduced so as to make sure that the students do not feel crippled by the challenges of today's job market. Several Add-On Courses have been introduced which would help develop professional competence of the students. The Incubation Centre of the College arranges for workshops that help these young women gain an insight into the world of entrepreneurship. They are encouraged to transform their ideas and views into viable business ventures, thereby opening up new avenues of self-reliance. Modern teaching-learning aids and other ICT resources are amply employed to make the curriculum interesting and to facilitate effective learning.

The College believes in fostering an understanding of one’s own cultural heritage. Tapping into the ethnographic richness of the locality, the students have curated a museum which vividly showcases the local cultural history. Students also actively participate in social outreach programs like HIV awareness in the locality, Menstrual Hygiene Awareness campaigns, educating slum children which help kindle qualities like empathy, compassion, and foster a sense of responsibility towards the society, and the nation at large.

Courses on Yoga and Self-defense ensure their capacity building initiatives and inculcate social awareness and responsibilities. Seminars and various other talks are organized which promote awareness regarding both mental and physical well-being. A huge emphasis is placed on discipline and it is ensured and enforced in a just and fair manner. The College, through organizing various programs like Earth Day, World Environment Day and the like, endeavors in making its students environmentally conscious as well. In a nutshell, The College relentlessly seeks to impart value-based education in order to ensure the holistic development of young women in every aspect of life.


As per the Academic Bank of Credit (ABC) initiative under the National Education Policy, students will have the option to enter and exit undergraduate (UG) and postgraduate (PG) programs at various stages, allowing them to seek employment or upgrade their qualifications without facing the risk of dropping out. This approach aims to provide students with flexibility in their academic journey. Students can earn credits that will be recognized under the Academic Bank of Credit system. However, the implementation of the ABC system is contingent upon further guidance from regulatory bodies like the University Grants Commission (UGC), Department of Higher Education, and the University of Calcutta, to which our institution is affiliated. We are awaiting appropriate instructions from these authorities to effectively integrate the Academic Bank of Credit into our academic framework.


In the rapidly evolving scenario of knowledge and skill acquisition, there is a growing need to re-assess the courses offered as well as to amend traditional modes of teaching-learning. The Choice Based Credit System introduced by University of Calcutta mandates Skill Enhancement Courses (SEC) for all disciplines. Also, in adherence to the New Education Policy (NEP), the College encourages a curriculum which would help build character, impart essential values, and equip students with skills necessary to face the challenges of this ever-voracious job market. Courses on Soft-Skill Development like Computer Course and Spoken English are introduced. Eleven Value-Added Courses have also been offered - Creative Writing, Translation from Urdu to English, Research Methodology, E-Governance, E-Filing of ITR, Life Skills, Photography, Understanding Regional/Local Heritage, Organic Abir, and Skill Entrepreneurship for Youth, Life Skills. Creative Writing as a course is aimed to hone the skills of students to be able to write for various literary and social platforms, and to make creative thinking a part and parcel of everyday thinking and written expression. The Course on Translation is equally instrumental in achieving the same end. The Research Methodology seeks to provide a preliminary idea about research, its objectives, its techniques and most importantly, its relevance and necessity. These courses, by and large, were offered in order to kindle an interest amongst the students towards higher education. The Course on E-Governance enables students to understand the e-governance initiatives and projects, analyzing their impact on governance, transparency, and accountability. It also helps develop a broader perspective on the role of E-Governance in promoting sustainable and inclusive development. To help students understand the tax system of our country, and to give hands-on practice, the Course on ITR has been introduced. The Course on Life Skills seeks to enhance the ability of students to face and address societal and personal issues. The Course on Photography offers to strengthen a skill extremely relevant in this world of smartphones and technology boom. One of the prime goals that this College has been working on has been the enrichment of our students about their local history and culture. In accordance with that, a Course on Heritage and Tourism had been floated, and which witnessed an enthusiastic participation from students. The Course on Organic Abir also taught students about going back to our erstwhile modes of knowledge, particularly about color preparation. Furthermore, the Course on Skill Entrepreneurship for Youth was floated so as to motivate students to identify opportunities, arrange for necessary resources, and materialize their business plans. Overall, necessary knowledge and skills are imparted to students that would help them pave their way to self-reliance.


The Bharatiya Jnana Parampara Vibhaga or Indian Knowledge Systems (IKS) was established in Oct, 2020 with the sole aim of promoting, preserving, and promulgating the discourse of our sound Indian knowledge. This theme finds resonance both in the academic and the non-academic trajectory followed by the Milli Al-Ameen College (For Girls). Since this College comprises mainly first-generation learners with a background in vernacular medium, the faculty takes extra care in making sure that their lectures in English are also followed with lucid explanations in Hindi/Urdu. All programs held in the College premises are inaugurated only after the holy recitation - the Tilawat-e-Quran. Apart from that, Courses on Translation Work (from Urdu to English) are also offered, so as to resuscitate the bond that one shares with his cultural and literary roots. Birthdays of important figures like Rabindranath Tagore, Muhammad Allama Iqbal, Sir Syed Ahmed, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad are celebrated with great pomp and enthusiasm. The Urdu Department and the Bengali Department organize interdisciplinary seminars and talks, which helps disseminate awareness about our rich literary repertoire amongst students. A separate shelf in the Library, dedicated to authors from Bengal is labeled as ‘The Pride of Bengal’. There exists another shelf which is allocated for female authors, who waded through enormous trials and tribulations and reached the pinnacle of success.

The College believes in fostering an understanding of one’s own cultural heritage. Without a fundamental comprehension of the roots, it is never possible to discern one’s social identity. Tapping into the ethnographic cultural and social richness of the locality, the students have curated a museum which vividly showcases this history. This emphasis on the relevance of our ancient Indian Knowledge System is further demonstrated through the floating of courses like ‘Ayurveda: an Alternative Medicinal Practice’ and ‘Yoga’.


Course/Program outcomes are uploaded on the College website which helps establish a clear notion about the trajectory that is to be followed. Through curricular and co-curricular activities, the College effectively strives to achieve the target. Program Outcomes and Course Outcomes for all programs offered by the institution are communicated and explained to students.


The pandemic taught us the absolute necessity of shifting overnight to the online mode of teaching. Interactive sessions, doubt clearing have all been carried out in this mode. Links of online course materials are also uploaded on the LMS portal to help students access study materials from any nook and corner. Links of e-Pathshala are also available on the College website. Even in post-pandemic times, several webinars have been organized, thereby making use of blended modes of learning.
