A Perspective

It has been rightly said that the end may not always justify the means. Behind the façade of ‘welcoming’ new students to college, ragging, in actuality, is a notorious practice where in the senior students get an excuse to harass their junior counterparts, and more often than not, make them easy targets to satiate their own perverse sadistic pleasures.

Apart from sustaining grievous physical injuries, those unfortunate students who succumb to ragging either develop a fear psychosis that haunts them throughout their lives, or worse, quit their college education even before it begins. For any student who slogs day and night to secure admission in to a prestigious college, ragging can be his or her worst nightmare come true. It would not be an exaggeration to say that, today, ragging has taken the shape of a serious human rights violation with even the most respected and disciplined educational institutes falling prey to it.


If any incident of ragging comes to the notice of the college authority the concerned student shall be given liberty to explain and if his explanation is not found satisfactory, the authority would expel him from the institution.

Ragging includes disorderly conduct whether bywords, spoken or written or by an act which has the effect of teasing, treating and handling with rudeness any other student, indulging in rowdy or indiscipline activity which causes or likely to cause hardship or psychological harm or raises fear or apprehension in the mind of a fresher or junior student'.
Students are required to submit affidavit as per UGC Regulation on curbing the menace of ragging in higher educational institutions, 2009. (Sample of affidavit is enclosed with the prospectus)
