Ragging is a crime which destroys the physical and emotional confidence and led to an increase in suicidal activities, defined as an act that violates or is perceived to violate an individual student's dignity.In 2009, University Grants Commission (UGC) passed UGC REGULATION ON CURBING THE MENACE OF RAGGING IN HIGHER EDUCATIONAL INSTITUTIONS, framed to curb the menace of ragging, including strict pre-emptive measures, like lodging freshers in a separate hostel. Students are requested to go through thoroughly and understand what constitutes ragging and what are the responsibilities of institution's and students' to prevent such incidents within the campus. Students and parents both are requested to give a necessary undertaking in the prescribed manner in strict compliance with the UGC regulations.
The Institute has formed an antiragging committee to completely wipe out the menace from the campus making it ragging free campus and to prohibit any conduct by any student or students whether by words spoken or written or by an act which has the effect of teasing, treating or handling with rudeness a fresher or any other student, or indulging in rowdy or indisciplined activities by any student or students which causes or is likely to cause annoyance, hardship or psychological harm or to raise fear or apprehension thereof in any fresher or any other student or asking any student to do any act which such student will not in the ordinary course do and which has the effect of causing or generating a sense of shame, or torment or embarrassment so as to adversely affect the physique or psyche of such fresher or any other student, with or without an intent to derive a sadistic pleasure or showing off power, authority or superiority by a student over any fresher or any other student. And preventing its occurrence and punishing those who indulge in ragging as provided for in these Regulations and the appropriate law in force.
