ANTI-RAGGING COMMITTEE:

Ragging – ‘A Punishable Offence’. Establishment of Anti Ragging Committee (As per All India Council for Technical Education notified Regulation for prevention and prohibition of ragging in AICTE approved Technical Institutions vide No. 37-3/ Legal/ AICTE/ 2009 dated 01.07.2009) 

“Ragging is a reprehensible act which does not do good to any one and no act of ragging shall be tolerated and any act of ragging shall not go unnoticed and unpunished” (Hon’ble Supreme Court of India) It goes without saying that subjecting a human being particularly in his/her adolescence, to a serried of sadistic acts’ in the name of ragging results in serious psychological consequences and in extreme case has led to suicide.

 As per the Hon’ble Supreme Court’s ruling, Uttarakhand Technical University has issued instructions to the effect that “Migration Certificate” shall be issued by the institute stating about the general conduct and behaviour of the students as well as whether the students had participated and in particular was punished for ragging”. 

 

OBJECTIVE OF ANTI-RAGGING COMMITTEE:

  • To sensitize the students on the dangers of ragging. 
  • To take measure for the prevention of any means of Ragging either within or outside the college

 

DECISION AND ACTION

Taking in to account the above facts and practice prevailing in different institutions, the Disciplinary Committee has adopted the most stringent measures against any student involved in ragging are: 

  • Expulsion from the college 
  • Rustication 
  • Financial penalty to be decided by the Disciplinary Committee
  • Cancellation of the result of the guilty student 
  • Deduction of General Proficiency Marks 

In case of failure in identification of any particular student involved in ragging, the entire group present on the spot is liable to be punished severely as mentioned above. “Ragging can be stopped by creating awareness amongst the students, teachers and parents” (As quoted by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India).

A Fresher who is new to the college environment and does not know how to react to ragging, can undergo severe emotional and psychological consequences. It not only bruises his/her ego, faith and confidence but in extreme circumstances leads to suicide, if the fresher is too sensitive and /or weak (Physically/mentally/emotionally).

  • To know that forcing someone to sing and dance is one of the forms of ragging.
