Anti-Ragging Cell

Anti-Ragging Cell

The Anti-Ragging Cell is a testament to our dedication to providing a safe and supportive environment for every student. Its goals align with this dedication since it tries to inform newcomers about the negative consequences of ragging and develop a sense of awareness and accountability among students. The cell also works to strengthen the values of respect and understanding that are the cornerstones of our university by promoting harmony and discipline among college students. By doing this, we hope to foster a culture that values diversity, respects human dignity, and enables each student to reach their full potential both academically and personally.

Ragging is any behaviour that includes making fun of, mistreating, or unpleasantly handling a student, participating in unruly or boisterous activities that could exasperate, inconvenience, or harm mental health, or create anxiety or fear in a fresher or junior student. Such behaviour also includes deeds that bring shame or embarrassment to a person, which can hurt a new or junior student's psychological health. Additionally, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has expanded the definition of ragging through the 3rd amendment in UGC Regulations dated 29th June 2016, incorporating further elements into its scope. It defines ragging as:

“Any act of physical or mental abuse (including bullying and exclusion) targeted at another student (fresher or otherwise) on the ground of colour, race, religion, caste, ethnicity, gender (including transgender), sexual orientation, appearance, nationality, regional origins, linguistic identity, place of birth, place of residence or economic background.”

Anti-Ragging Information

These two committees are overseen by the Principal. All students who are accepted into the school must abide by the rules set forth by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

An orientation programme is usually held during the first week of the academic year to help new students become acquainted with the academic and social environment of the college. The college uses a range of communication methods to distribute information about the anti-ragging measures that have been put in place. To increase awareness among students, notices with statements like “Zero Tolerance Policy on Ragging” and others are widely displayed in various places throughout the campus. To further warn potential offenders, details about the penal measures specified in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) are also displayed.

To help pupils adjust to their new surroundings and spot any signs of bullying, frequent interactive sessions and counselling programmes are arranged.

To keep an eye out for any indications of ragging, the anti-ragging squad routinely inspects locations including the sports fields, student union office, and canteen. To discourage ragging and other bad behaviour, surprise inspections are also carried out in locations like common rooms, canteen, and restroom zones.

Any student who engages in ragging should report it right away to any member of the Anti-Ragging Squad. Students can file complaints in several ways, including in writing, over the phone, or online by WhatsApp or email by utilising the link on the college website. The victim student, the victim’s friend, the student’s class representative, or anybody else with knowledge of the incident may file these complaints. Complaints received by the Anti-Ragging Cell will be treated with confidentiality and will not be disclosed publicly under any circumstances. Any student found guilty after a comprehensive investigation and objective evaluation by the Anti-Ragging Cell will be subject to disciplinary proceedings, which may include dismissal from the college, suspension, or expulsion. In addition, FIRs will be filed with the police following the applicable legislation against the offenders.

However, appropriate action will be taken against the specific student who made the false charge if investigations show that the supposed complaint is unsubstantiated, fabricated, or frivolous.

The Complaint Mechanism

Any member of the Anti-Ragging Cell or Anti-Ragging Squad should be notified right away of any allegations about a student engaged in ragging. One can file the complaint in writing, over the phone, or electronically by sending an email using the link on the college website. Such complaints may originate from the victimized student, an associate thereof, the Student Class Representative, or any individual possessing knowledge of the incident. All complaints forwarded to the Anti-Ragging Cell shall be treated with utmost confidentiality and shall not be disclosed publicly under any circumstances.
