Prevention of Ragging in Technical Institutions
The Supreme Court of India in Writ Petition No. (C) 656/1998 directed that the ragging in educational institutions should be prevented and appropriate measures should be taken by AICTE for prevention of ragging in technical educational institutions.
Accordingly, the Council has published a circular in its website www.aicte.ernet.in directing the technical institutions to ensure that the ragging does not take place in their campuses in any form and that if such cases are reported to the Council, necessary action including withdrawal of approval shall be taken. The institutions imparting technical education are advised to take necessary measures for prevention of ragging in any form in their campuses. Students, their parents and the general public are advised to report to the Council, instances of ragging in any form in institutions imparting technical education for taking appropriate action by the Council.
Institutions are further advised to insert a footnote that "Ragging is Prohibited as per the decision of the Supreme Court of India in Writ Petition No. (C) 656/1998" in all their advertisements. This warning must also find a prominent display in their prospectus/ brochure. -:
