The University continues its Zero Tolerance Policy towards Ragging

With the new Academic session slated to start from 23 July 2018 and admissions continuing in full swing, The NorthCap University, Gurugram held its Anti-Ragging Committee meeting under the Chairmanship of the Vice-Chancellor, Prof. HB Raghavendra on 20 Jul 2018.

The Committee had wide representation with members from the University Administration, Faculty, Hostel Wardens, Local Police Station, Parents, student representatives, members from the Press and local NGOs. The VC welcomed all members and expressed satisfaction on the unblemished record of ‘NIL’ incident of ragging since its inception and reiterated the University’s resolution of remaining free from the ugly menace of ragging. Member- Secretary informed the members that Anti Ragging Squads from amongst the members of the faculty, administration and technical staff had been constituted and duly briefed on what constitutes ragging, vigil to be mounted to ensure meticulous implementation of anti-ragging measures and redressal mechanism in case the need arises. All members were directed to perform this duty diligently and with utmost sincerity.

Member-Secretary informed the members that Student Anti-Ragging Counsellors from across all Programmes at the University had been appointed to help act as an interface between the freshers and existing students to ensure no harassment is meted out to them.

The local Police representative was requested to depute a beat constable, especially in the evening after classes, to obviate any scope of indulgence in ragging by senior students. The member-secretary confirmed that all reports as mandated by the UGC, Govt of Haryana and local Police are being rendered without delay. The VC emphasized that ragging, being a cognizable offence, those indulging in it would have an FIR lodged against them and the case would meet its logical end as per the country’s laws. The meeting ended on a positive note with all members expressing satisfaction at the measures instituted by the University and offered their whole hearted support in ensuring that the University remains ragging free.

Posters received from the Ministry of  Human Resource Development, Govt of India, on anti-ragging have been displayed at several places on the University campus.
