www.antiragging.in – Govt launches Website for Students to Complain Against Ragging
Launch a complain against ragging in college online at Antiragging.in
The Government of India has launched AntiRagging.in as a website to help students of universities, colleges and professional institutes lodge online complaints against ragging or harassment and seek faster response. One can also get the anti-ragging affidavits through email registering on the website and keep a track about the progress of their complaints .
The UGC-managed portal has been developed in active collaboration with Rajendra Kachroo, father of Aman who lost his life to ragging at a medical college in Himachal Pradesh in 2009. Students can also register their complaint dialing 18001805522 as part of the facility, which will be followed up in a structured software system. As part of the holistic measure, a database of all institutes would be created in the portal out of the affidavits affirmed by the students or parents.
“The complaints would be examined. If they are of serious magnitude, they would be transferred immediately to the police, the magistrate and head of the institution,” said UGC acting chairman Ved Prakash.
Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal said that there would be monitoring mechanism at every level acting on the complaints. “We will also have all information and if we find something is not being done properly, then we can take immediate steps,” Sibal added.
