Anti-Ragging Cell









Welcome to Purbasthali College, an institution dedicated to academic excellence and the holistic development of its students. At the heart of our commitment to fostering a safe and inclusive campus environment lies the remarkable achievement that sets us apart: since its inception, there have been no instances of ragging within our premises. This achievement stands as a matter of immense pride for us, reflecting our dedication to maintaining a harmonious and respectful atmosphere for all members of our college community.

In accordance with the revered mandate of the Hon'ble Supreme Court of India and the guidelines set forth by the University Grants Commission (UGC), the college authority and the Governing Body have taken a resolute step towards ensuring a ragging-free campus. This initiative has led to the establishment of the Anti Ragging Cell, a vital entity entrusted with the responsibility of upholding the principles of respect, dignity, and camaraderie within our college premises.

The Anti Ragging Cell stands as a testament to our commitment to fostering a positive and secure environment for every student. Its aims and objectives resonate with this commitment, as it endeavors to educate newcomers about the detrimental effects of ragging, thereby fostering a sense of awareness and responsibility within the student community. The cell also strives to enhance harmony and discipline among the college students, reinforcing the values of mutual respect and understanding that form the bedrock of our institution. Through this, we aim at nurturing a culture that celebrates diversity, upholds human dignity, and empowers every student to thrive academically and personally.

Any form of conduct, whether through spoken or written words, or through actions, which involves teasing, treating, or handling a student with rudeness, engaging in rowdy or undisciplined activities likely to cause annoyance, hardship, or psychological harm, or instilling fear or apprehension in a fresher or junior student is considered ragging. Such behavior also includes actions that result in causing shame or embarrassment, thereby adversely affecting the psychological well-being of a fresher or junior student. Additionally, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has expanded the definition of ragging through the 3rd amendment in UGC Regulations dated June 29th, 2016, incorporating further elements into its scope. It defines ragging as:

“Any act of physical or mental abuse (including bullying and exclusion) targeted at another student (fresher or otherwise) on the ground of colour, race, religion, caste, ethnicity, gender (including transgender), sexual orientation, appearance, nationality, regional origins, linguistic identity, place of birth, place of residence or economic background.”

These two committees are overseen by the Principal of the college. All students admitted to the institution are required to adhere to and comply with the regulations stipulated by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

In order to facilitate the integration of new students into the academic and social milieu of the campus, an orientation program is typically conducted during the initial week of the academic year. Various communication channels are utilized to disseminate information regarding the anti-ragging measures implemented within the college. Notices bearing messages such as "Zero tolerance policy on Ragging" and others are prominently displayed across different areas of the campus to raise awareness among students. Furthermore, information regarding the punitive measures outlined in the Indian Penal Code (IPC) is also exhibited to caution potential offenders.

Regular interactive sessions and counseling initiatives are organized to assist students in adapting to the new environment and to identify any indications of ragging. The anti-ragging squad conducts routine inspections of areas such as the canteen, student union office, and sports grounds to monitor for any signs of ragging. Additionally, surprise inspections are conducted in areas including canteens, common rooms, toilet zones, and the garage area to deter instances of ragging and any other undesirable behavior.

Any instances of ragging perpetrated by a student should be promptly reported to any member of the Anti-Ragging Squad.

Complaints can be lodged through various means such as in writing, telephonically, or digitally via email or WhatsApp, using the provided link on the college website. These complaints may be submitted by the victim student, a friend of the victim student, the Class Representative of the Student, or any individual with knowledge of the incident.

Complaints received by the Anti-Ragging Cell will be treated with utmost confidentiality and will not be disclosed publicly in any manner. Following a thorough investigation and impartial scrutiny conducted by the Anti-Ragging Cell, any student/s found guilty will face disciplinary actions including expulsion, suspension, or dismissal from the college. Additionally, FIRs will be lodged with the police against the perpetrators under the relevant laws. However, if investigations reveal that the alleged complaint is frivolous, false, or completely baseless, appropriate action will be taken against the respective student responsible for making the false accusation.


Any allegations concerning a student engaging in ragging should be immediately brought to the attention of any member of the Anti-Ragging Cell or Anti-Ragging Squad. The complaint may be submitted in written, telephonic, or digital format, such as via email, utilizing the link provided on the college website. Such complaints may originate from the victimized student, an associate thereof, the Student Class Representative, or any individual possessing knowledge of the incident. All complaints forwarded to the Anti-Ragging Cell shall be treated with utmost confidentiality and shall not be disclosed publicly under any circumstances.
