Anti Ragging Policy

Ragging of students admitted to the Institute is totally banned.  Any violation of this by the students will be dealt with very severely.  For your understanding, ragging a is CRIMINAL & NON-BAILABLE offence and is defined in legal parlance as, “the display of noisy, disorderly conduct and doing any act which causes or is likely to cause physical or psychological harm or raise apprehension or fear, shame or  embarrassment to a student in any academic institution. This includes:- teasing, abusing, or playing  practical  jokes  on  or  causing hurt to such student; or asking the student to do any act or perform something which such student will not in the ordinary course be willing to do”.

               Excerpts from the Directors of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India in respect of curbing ragging in Educational Institutions:  “The  Head  of  the  institution  (Vice-Chancellor/Director/Principal, etc.) should take immediate action on receipt of the recommendation of the Disciplinary Committee. He can also take action suo motto if the circumstances so demand. Freshers should be encouraged to report incidents of ragging. Those who do not do so even when being witnesses or victims, should also be punished suitably.  When the  persons committing or abetting  the crime of ragging are not identified, collective punishment could be resorted to as a possible deterrent  measure,  as it would ensure fraternity pressure on the potential raggers not to indulge in ragging”.
