The Minister of State for Human Resource Dr. D. Purandeswari today in Rajya Sabha explained the steps taken by the Government of India to curb ragging. The explanation given is as below:
The cases of ragging in higher educational institutions continue to be reported to the Toll-Free Anti-Ragging Helpline set up by the Government and at times a few cases of alleged ragging also appear in the press and media. As a matter of fact, after the launching of this helpline in June, 2009 which operates in 12 languages, the students have free access to it and report cases without fear.
The other effective steps taken by the Government include notification of anti-ragging regulations by regulatory authorities viz. University Grants Commission (UGC) , All Indian Council for Technical Education (AICTE), Medical Council of India (MCI), Dental Council of India (DCI), which have very stringent provisions for taking action against the students and institutions if they are found violating the anti-ragging regulations.
The students/parents are required to submit anti-ragging related affidavit to the Institute at the time of admissions. The media campaign started by Government since 2009 through print, audio/visual has created awareness throughout the country. The advisories are also issued before the start of the academic session to the States/UTs, Civil and Police authorities to participate in the anti-ragging committees of the institutions and take immediate deterrent action in cases of ragging.
