RAGGING' IS BANNED @ MIET

The Supreme Court of India defined in a 2001 judgment (1) as: Any disorderly conduct whether by words spoken or written or by an act which the effect of teasing, treating or handing with rudeness any other students, including rowdy or in disciplined activities which causes or is likely to cause annoyance, hardship or psychological harm or to raise fear or apprehension thereof in a fresher or a junior student or asking the students to do any act or perform something which such student will not do in the ordinary course and which has the effect of causing or generation a sense of shame or embarrassment so as to adversely affect the physique or psyche of a fresher or a junior student. NOTE: Minimum fine is Rs. 25000/- (Twenty Five Thousand Rupees only) and FIR will be lodged against the defaulty.

A Bench of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice S H Kapadia, which had earlier passed directions to purge the students’ union elections from the influence of money and muscle power, passed a slew of directions to rid Indian campuses of the abhorrent practice. It ordered all educational institutions to ensure that special anti-ragging committees/squads were constituted forthwith and it shall be the duty of their duty to see that the court’s directives were implemented in letter and spirit.

It also asked the Raghvan Committee to monitor the functioning of the anti-ragging committees/squads and submit further report to it. The apex court asked the educational institutions to include in their prospectus a specification seeking an undertaking from the candidate that he/she was not be involved in ragging. In case the undertaking is found to be false the student shall be expelled from the institution, the order said. Observing that it would be the collective responsibility of the institutions to check ragging, the court in case of any lapses in this regard, their aid/assistance from the Government.

The court also directed the NCERT and SCERTs to explore the possibility of introducing separate chapters on evils of ragging under ‘Human Rights’ topic in curricula for various classes. It asked the Centre and the state governments to launch programmes to give wider publicity to menace of ragging and its consequences among the students to dissuade them from indulging in such activities. In its voluminous Report, Raghavan Committee has recommended amendment in the Indian Penal Code to create a separate offence of ‘ragging’ and changes in the Criminal Procedure Code and the Indian Evidence Act to ensure that ragging cases are tried expeditiously. The Committee also recommended ban corporal punishment in primary and secondary educational institutions as it felt that it was a contributory factor for students to develop bullying tendencies and indulge in ragging.

The staff is always there to accomplish the goals set before them to make the institutions vision in to reality. I hope young engineers passing from the institute will create difference in Indian and Global scenario. I wish Best of Luck to all the students in their endeavors.
