ANTI RAGGING CELL

Ragging is a practice in educational institutions that involves existing students baiting or bullying new students. In the name of introduction or initiation, millions of students are brutally abused in many educational institutions. Historically originated, probably, to generate fellow-feeling or camaraderie and the ability to work in a team, it has metamorphosed into something else. It often takes a malignant form wherein the newcomers may be subjected to psychological or physical torture.
 
Under the pretext of ‘welcoming’ new students to the college, ragging is a notorious practice that gives senior students an excuse to harass their junior counterparts and make them easy targets to satiate their own perverse sadistic pleasures.

Whoever directly or indirectly commits, participates in, abets or instigates ragging inside or outside the educational institution shall be suspended, expelled or rusticated from the institution and shall also be liable to fine.
