  • Observation and Directives of the Supreme Court:

The Supreme Court of India has observed that enrolment in academic pursuits or a campus life should not immunize any adult citizen from the penal provisions of the laws of the land. According to the directions of the Supreme Court if any instance of ragging is brought to the notice of the administration or the faculty, it is legally binding on us to report the matter to the Local Police. 

  • Our Directives to the seniors:
  1. Any interaction between fresher’s and seniors where the seniors are friendly, welcoming and non-aggressive is encouraged.
  2. Seniors may solicit participation in clubs and other activities by announcing promotional events at well designated times and places. However, no fresher should be forced to attend. Participation by fresher’s can only be voluntary.
  3. Seniors are expected to maintain self-imposed discipline and restraint. In particular, they must be careful about:
  4. Any "interaction" outside public areas.
  5. Visiting fresher’s rooms during the interaction period, or inviting fresher’s to their rooms.
  6. Forcing fresher’s to sing dance or perform in any way under the guise of "talent search" or "interaction".
  7. Being over-enthusiastic about making fresher’s participating in student activities - cultural or sports.
