Anti Ragging Measures at Poornima University
The utmost vicious act is the offence of Ragging on a human being by an inhuman individual. ”Ragging is considered to be one of the highest offences as per the regulations prescribed by UGC on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions 2009, which defines ragging as: Various acts like “Causing, inducing, captivating or forcing a student, whether by means of practical joke or by any other act to do which diminishes from human dignity or disturbs his/her person or exposes him/her to ridicule from doing any lawful act. By intimidating, wrongfully restraining, wrongfully confining, or injuring him or by using criminal force on him/her or by holding out to him/her any threat of intimidation, wrongful confinement, injury or the use of criminal force.”
“Ragging in all its forms is completely banned in the institution including in its departments, constituent units, all its premises (academic, residential, sports, cafeteria, etc.) whether located within or outside the campus in all means of transportation of students whether public or private. The institution shall take strict and severe action including but not limited to criminal proceeding and/or cancellation of admission against those found guilty of ragging and/or of abetting ragging and the burden of proof shall hereby lie on the perpetrator of alleged ragging and not on the victim. An offence of Ragging may be charged either on a written complaint by the affected or on independent finding of the Anti-Ragging Squad.
The Institution is bound by the UGC Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions 2009.”In order that no incidence of Ragging is ever reported at Poornima University, Poornima University has formed an Anti – Ragging Committee which governs the prevention of any means of Ragging either within or outside the university premises. There have been no incidents of Ragging at Poornima University till date.
