Ragging is illegal and punishable in strictest and most exemplary terms as per the ruling of the Supreme Court of India. For an offence committed in the Department or in a classroom or elsewhere, the Head of the Department shall have the authority to reprimand or impose fine or take any other suitable measure.
According to UGC guidelines for Anti-Ragging, an Anti-Ragging committee is constituted every year. The current committee is working diligently to maintain a healthy, friendly and secure environment for all the students of the college.
