Note: Though the NIRF Ranking is the most trusted methodology to decide between a good and the best one Just because the college is “highly-ranked” or “prestigious” doesn’t mean it’s the right College for you. Always keep in mind that one person’s dream college could be another’s nightmare. It’s always better to visit and experience the college.

  1. TKM College of Arts and Sciences, Kollam, Kerala used my academic achievements for NIRF Ranking and after that Management ordered compulsory retirement with retrospect effect. When they applied for the ranking my status, Associate Professor. As per the order of the Manager I retired on 30 – 9-2017.l have two Masters degrees, Reader, Research Supervisor, Resource person, many publications. Actually I was the senior most Qualified person to be the principal. Management keeps an unqualified junior person as Principal in charge to act according to the whims and fancies of the Management. When I was the HoD l reported CE mark manupulation to University of kerala and the Syndicate recommended for Disciplinary actions against principal and Dr. Raghu. From that day onwards harassment began. I was taken directly to hospital from the college and was admitted at the cardiac ICU. Police recorded statement, after 164 statement police charged case, Ipc 354A, 504 and 341. Management allowed the Principal to continue in service as he employed illicit means to get high rank. The Principal In Charge faced Disciplinary action for opening nine questions in advance, syndicate imposed a fine of Rs180000. Instead of punishing him, management promoted him to principal in charge. He retired on June 30. Now management gave Charge to a junior Assistant professor to act according to the whims and fancies of the Management. In TKM College there is not even a proper ICC, a junior Assistant professor is the Presiding Officer, now she is promoted as Principal in charge for acting as a tool in the hands of the Management. Action may be taken if they have used any of my academic achievements for ranking. How did a College manage to get rank 45 with out a regular qualified principal for the last four years. A senior lady with 30 years of service forced to lodge harassment complaint to police and leading a miserable life with out salary or pension….It is 13 months. I wonder.. the parameters of the NIRF ranking…….
