The anti-ragging directions of the Central Government are given wider publicity through the College prospectus and also put up in the notice boards. However, there is no report of ragging in the College till date.
The following are the key observations made by Hon’ble Supreme Court of India on the menace of ragging in Educational Institutions and measures to curb it.
- Ragging adversely affects the standards of higher education.
Primary responsibility for curbing ragging rests with academic institutions themselves.
- Incentives must be available to the institution for curbing the menace and there should be disincentives for failure to do so.
Enrolment in academic pursuits or a campus life should not immunize any adult citizen from penal provisions of the laws of the land.
- Ragging needs to be perceived as a failure to inculcate human values from the schooling stage.
A concerted action is required at the level of the school, higher eductaional institution, district admministration, university, state and central governments.
- Media and civil society should be involved in this exercise.
The decision and directions of the Hon’ble Supreme Court have been adopted by the University Grants Commission in the Expert Committee meeting held on 13th April 2009 and circulated to all the Universities vide No F.1-16/2007 (CPP-II) dated 17th June, 2009 titled “UGC Regulations on curbing the menace of ragging in Higher Educational Institutions 2009” (under Section 26 (1) (g) of the University Grants Commission Act, 1956). This regulation underlines that
“Ragging in all its forms shall be totally banned in the entire institution, including its departments, constituent units, all its premises (academic, residential, sports, canteen, etc) whether located within the campus or outside and in all means of transportation of students whether public or private and the institution shall take strict action those found guilty of ragging and /or of abetting ragging”.
