Actions Suggested by AICTE against students indulging and abetting in Ragging

The punishment to be meted out to the persons indulged in ragging has to be exemplary and justifiably harsh to act as a deterrent against the recurrence of such incidents. The students who are found to be indulging in ragging should be debarred from taking admission in any technical institution in India. Every single incident of ragging a First Information Report (FIR) must be filed without exception by the institutional authorities with the local police authorities. Depending upon the nature and gravity of the offense as established by the Anti-Ragging Committee of the institution, the possible punishments for those found guilty of ragging at the institution level shall be any one or any combination of the following.

A student found guilty of ragging in the campus or event outside the campus shall be liable to one or more of the following punishments:

  • Cancellation of Admission.
  • Debarring from appearing in any Midterm test / University Examination.
  • Withholding Results.
  • Suspension from attending classes and academic privileges.
  • Withdrawing/Withholding scholarships/Fellowship and other benefits.
  • Expulsion from college/Hostel.
  • Entry in the character / Transfer Certificate regarding the punishment given for any Act ,if a ragging complaint is filed with the police leading to arrest..
  • Fine of Rupees 25,000/-
  • Collective punishment: when the persons committing or abetting the crime of ragging are not identified, the institution shall resort to collective punishment as a deterrent to ensure community pressure on the potential raggers.
  • The institutional authority shall intimate the incidents of ragging that occurred in their premises along with actions taken to the Council immediately after the occurrence of such incident and inform the status of the case from time to time.
  • Courts should make an effort to ensure that cases involving ragging are taken up on a priority basis to send the correct message that ragging is not only to be discouraged but also to be dealt with sternness.
