To fight the menace of ragging, the University Grants Commission (UGC) is bringing a mobile app which will help students register complaints in case they face any problems.

“The UGC has decided to bring an app as it would help them file complaints whereever they are. Earlier also there was provision as per which students could file complaints online, but an app would make it easier,” a senior official said.
