The college is committed to the endeavours of various authorities in irradication of evil of Ragging from educational Institutes.
Although there not a single incidence so far reported in this college, we do not wish to complacent and to be part of the machinery against it.
We would like to bring attention of our present and future students that college will follow the guidelines as issued by various authorities like following and some other. The students and others should refer the same.
“Ragging” means causing, inducing, compelling or forcing a student, whether by way of a practical joke or other wise, to do any act which detracts from human dignity or violates his/her person or exposes him/her to ridicule, or compels him/her to forbear from doing any lawful act, by intimidating, wrongfully restraining, wrongfully confining or injuring him/her by using criminal force to him/her, or by holding out to him/her any threat of such intimidation, wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, injury or the use of criminal force. Ragging being an evil practice, is inhuman, illegal and punishable. It violates the discipline of an educational institution and adversely affects the standards of higher education. Ragging in any educational institute is banned by the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India.
The court has issued mandatory orders to curb the menace of ragging in educational institutions. If an applicant for admission is found to have indulged in ragging in the past or it is noticed later that he/she has indulged in raging, his/her admission may be refused or he/she shall be expelled from the educational institution. The punishment may also be in other forms, such as suspension from the classes for a limited period, or fine with a public apology, debarring from representation in events, withholding results, suspension or expulsion from hostel or mess, and the like. If the Head of the Institution is not satisfied with these arrangements for action, an First Information Report (FIR) can be filed without exception by institutional authorities with the local police. The discretionary power vests solely with the Institute Authorities.
Acts Amounting to Ragging could be :
Teasing, Embarrassing and Humiliating;
Assaulting or Using Criminal Force or Criminal Intimidation;
Wrongfully Restraining or Confining or causing Hurt;
Causing Grievous Hurt, Kidnapping or Rape or committing Unnatural Offence;
Causing Death or Abetting Suicide.
Supreme Court of India has made the following recommendation for immediate implementation :
The punishment to be meted out has to be exemplary and justifiably harsh to act as a deterrent against recurrence of such incidents;
Courts should make an effort to ensure that cases involving ragging are taken up on priority basis to send the correct message that the ragging is not only to be discouraged but also to be dealt with sternness;
In the prospectus to be issued for admission by educational institution, it shall be clearly stipulated that in case the applicant for admission is found to have indulged in ragging in the past or if it is noticed later that he has indulged in ragging, admission may be refused or he shall be expelled from the educational institution;
Role of the concerned institution shall also be open to scrutiny for the purpose of finding out whether they have taken effective steps for preventing ragging and in case of their failure, action can be taken against them too;
ROFELs are committed at removing ragging in all forms. In compliance to the guidelines laid down by the Hon’ble Apex Court of the country.
