Anti Ragging Cell

The University Grants Commission has framed regulations for curbing the menace of ragging in higher educational institutions in order to prohibit, prevent and eliminate the scourge of ragging.
In this regard, an Anti Ragging Cell has been constituted at Shri K.T. Patil’s Institute of Nursing Sciences for implementing the UGC’s direction with the following faculty of the institutions, parents and students as members.
The Anti Ragging Cell is very vigilant all the times. As a proactive measure, a seminar is conducted at the beginning of the academic year. Senior students are addressed about the ill effects consequences of ragging.

It was in the late 70s in the aftermath of the death of two freshers in a Regional Engineering College that the Government of India for the first time issued a notification banning ragging in the country.

The anti-ragging campaign got an impetus in 1999 when the Hon’ble Supreme Court, in response to a PIL filed by the Vishwa Jagriti Mission, asked the University Grants Commission (UGC) to issue guidelines to universities to curb ragging. The UGC formed a four member committee under Prof K.P.S. Unny, Registrar of Jawaharlal Nehru University, New Delhi, to examine and submit a report on ragging.

According to the UGC Regulation on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions, 2009, depending on the nature and gravity of the guilt established by the Anti-Ragging Squad, those found guilty may be awarded one or more of the following punishments, namely;

  • Suspension from attending classes and academic privileges.
  • Withholding/ withdrawing scholarship/ fellowship and other benefits.
  • Debarring from appearing in any test/ examination or other evaluation process.
  • Withholding results.
  • Debarring from representing the institution in any regional, national or international meet, tournament, youth festival, etc.
  • Suspension/ expulsion from the hostel.
  • Cancellation of admission.
