Human Resource Department has launched a website to tackle the ragging menace that occur every year whenever new academic session starts. Engineering and Medical colleges record highest number of ragging cases. And some extreme cases, the victims face physical abuses,sometimes leading to death.
The Central government has zero-tolerance policy towards ragging since long and have been very active in controlling ragging in major institutes of India. Now going a step further, HRD ministry has come up with a website where students directly can sent their reports.
www.antiragging.in was launched by HRD minister Kapil Sibal. The portal will be managed by UGC directly.
Sibal said, "Lot of young students have lost their lives, many loose their confidence because of this practice....Through this facility we want to ensure that culprits get strict punishment.''
Rajendra Kachroo, the father of Aman who lost his life to ragging at a medical college in Himachal in 2009 has been very active in getting this website online.
"The complaints would be examined. If they are of serious magnitude, they would be transferred quickly to the police, the magistrate and head of the institution," said UGC acting chairman Ved Prakash.
