‘Ragging’ a social menace, as such has no place in academic environment of the Institute and concerted efforts are required to be in the place to prevent its occurrence at any point of time. Hence the need of ‘anti-ragging policy’ to be adopted by the institute. Ragging is criminal offence and lowers the standards of education.

The ‘anti-ragging policy’ adopted by the institute take care of preventive, procedural and punitive aspects of ragging based on the guidelines provided by honorable supreme court of India, recommendations of the Raghavan committee, instructions/guidelines issued by the Ministry of HRD (Govt. of India).

Anti Ragging Policy

This policy encourages the socialization of students into the academic environment of the Institute while simultaneously discouraging and preventing any negative acts on the part of senior students, which goes against the basic purpose of socio-academic integration. The ‘anti-ragging policy’ adopted by the institute is aimed at:

  • a) Creating, developing, and nurturing a conducive socio-academic environment within the student population.

  • b) Generating and maintaining a high level of confidence within new entrants and their parents/guardians, perceiving that fresh entrants to the institute are welcomed and provided support rather than harassed and intimidated.

  • c) Maintaining an integrated system to discourage and prevent any negative acts like ‘ragging’ by seniors, which disrupt socio-academic integration of new entrants.

  • d) Prescribing deterrent measures for any violation of the “anti-ragging policy” through disciplinary measures.
