Management and decentralization form the core of college activities and are among the best practices of the institution. The basic purpose is to achieve a synergy in the working of the Principal, college administration, faculty, students and non teaching staff and to develop an efficient, transparent and consultative work culture. This practice is emphasized to handle the enormous and multifarious college activities with efficiency, to keep the staff and students self motivated, to get them complete their respective tasks with self responsibility and to create among them a sense of belongingness with the institution. 
Government College, Barwala (Panchkula) is a HEI with the strength of about 350 students and 50 staff members providing education in different streams. The practice of management is instrumental in lessening the load on the Principal so that he/she can concentrate on the general efficiency and effectiveness of college functioning. Moreover, different students related issues need different solutions and they can best be handled in decentralized manner. There is a need of regular and incremental planning to involve different functionaries according to their inclination and aptitude. Another challenge is to communicate to them the specified objectives of their respective duties to minimize their subjectivity. It is to be ensured that they work without the unnecessary fear of the repercussions of their innocuous and well intentioned decisions. The Principal must take the leadership role and own responsibility of the work done in participative way. 
The practice of management is to provide a real participation to teachers, non teaching staff and students in decision making. The senior most teachers along with the Principal form the highest decision making body, namely, College Council. The Principal in the light of the policy guidelines and the vision and mission of the college conducts the activities of the institution with the active support of the empowered College Council. 
There is a detailed distribution and delegation of work among teachers through the comprehensive system of committees with set SOPs. All the college activities including co-curricular/ extra-curricular activities, scholarship, discipline, sports, cultural activities, library, discipline, proctorial groups, mentor groups, college administrative issues, placement etc are administered efficiently through the decentralized system of these committees. All respectively related aspects such as planning, organization, financial sanction, spending of sanctioned amount, utilization of grants and reporting are done by these committees in accordance with set rules and procedures and under the overall supervision of the Principal. 
The teaching learning activities are again conducted in participatory way. The teaching departments are headed by Head of the Department who coordinates the teaching activities in consultation with other teachers. The teachers take self responsibility to oversee the imparting of teaching activities in accordance with decided learning outcomes and they ensure the exhaustive coverage of syllabus according to the pre-decided lesson plans. 
The College Superintendent leads the non teaching staff deputed in office, library and laboratories. He works in close collaboration with the Principal and teaching staff to provide necessary ancillary and menial support through the non teaching staff members. He is also the part of staff meetings if any issue related to office is involved. He provides necessary consultation to the Principal and College Council in official and administrative matters. 
There is a good practice of the involvement of students through their representatives in different college activities. They are at the helm of the organization of co-curricular/extra-curricular and extension activities and work under the overall guidance of the related teachers. They are actively involved in planning, arrangement, conduct and reporting of events. They take self initiative in organizing these events and mobilizing students for them. 
The management is very significant in providing opportunities for healthy growth to students and staff, ensuring connectivity of them with the institution and achieving quality standards in accordance with the progressively altered needs of the society.

Unless seen with analytical eye, it is invisible to others as it has become the part of routine process. Any institution who wants to adopt this practice must work for the development of healthy work environment taking all along without any bias and helping those who are a little laggard from others.
