ANTI-RAGGING INITIATIVES OF THE COLLEGE
It is any disorderly conduct whether by words spoken or written or by an act which has the effect of teasing, treating or handling with rudeness to any student, indulging in rowdy or undisciplined activities which cause or likely to cause annoyance, hardship or psychological harm or to raise fear or apprehension thereof in a fresher or a junior student and which has the effect of causing or generating a sense of shame or embarrassment so as to adversely affect the psyche of a fresher or a junior student. Further, UGC has notified via the 3 rd amendment in UGC Regulations on 29th June, 2016 to expand the definition of ragging by including the following:
“Any act of physical or mental abuse (including bullying and exclusion) targeted at another student (fresher or otherwise) on the ground of colour, race, religion, caste, ethnicity, gender (including transgender), sexual orientation, appearance, nationality, regional origins, linguistic identity, place of birth, place of residence or economic background.”

Different communication mechanisms are used to disseminate the information about the anti-ragging measures being followed at the college. At various corner of the campus warning stating “Zero tolerance policy in Ragging” “Be aware Raggers” etc are displayed to aware the students. Apart from these the provision of punishment as per IPC is also displayed in the campus to warn the probable offender.
Regular interaction and counselling sessions are held with the students to make them comfortable in the new environment and to detect any signs of ragging. The anti-ragging squad regularly visits canteen/student union office and sports ground to detect any signs of ragging. In addition, there is surprise inspection at canteens, common rooms, toilets’ zone, garage area etc to prevent ragging and any undesirable behaviour or incident.
