In yet another reminder, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has directed varsities and affiliated colleges to put in place stipulated measures to prohibit, prevent and eliminate the scourge of ragging.
“Students and parents ought to know whom to approach when in difficulty. All regulatory bodies and educational institutes, including the UGC-funded universities and the private universities, should ensure they have strict anti-ragging measures in place,” said a notice issued by the UGC.
In 2009, the UGC had framed regulations to curb the menace of ragging in higher educational institutes. As per the regulations, all the institutes are required to take necessary steps to implement anti-ragging measures in toto, including the monitoring mechanism.
“Any violation of the regulations or if any institute fails to take adequate steps to prevent ragging or act in accordance with these regulations or fails to punish perpetrators of incidents of ragging suitably, UGC shall call for punitive action against erring institutes,” the commission had warned.
Erecting suitable hoardings/bill boards/banners in prominent places within the campus to exhort students to prevent or not indulge in ragging, dispalying names of officials and their telephone numbers to be contacted in case of ragging, formation of anti-ragging committees and squads, and dedicated cadre of wardens and professional counselors are some of the important guidelines laid down by the UGC.
