Supreme Court issues stricter Guidelines to prevent Ragging

The Supreme Court has issued stricter guidelines to prevent ragging in colleges and other educational institutions. As per the new directive issued by the apex court, Head of the Institution and the local police chief will be held responsible, if any ragging case is reported in their jurisdiction. A national level committee will be formed to suggest remedial measures in the school curriculum.
Most of the recommendations made by the SC Committee on Ragging headed by former CBI director R K Raghvan, were accepted by the Supreme Court. A Bench comprising of Justice Arijit Pasayat and Justice A.K. Ganguly, issued the directives. The Supreme Court stepped in to curb the ragging following the death of 19-year-old medical student Aman Kachroo at Dr. Rajendra Prasad Medical College in Himachal Pradesh.
Here are the key Features of the Supreme Court Guidelines on Ragging:
1) Immediate rustication of the senior students indulged in ragging.
2) Departmental action against all heads of institutions where ragging takes place.
3) High level security in all hostel premises and a strict vigil to be maintained.
4) Freshers will be divided into small groups and will be affiliated to individual teachers.
5) Police SHO or SP will be responsible for any ragging that takes place under their jurisdiction.
6) All colleges should hire psychiatrists to sensitise senior students, freshers and staff against ragging.
7) Panels must be set up to check the increasing incidents of ragging and rampant alcoholism in universities and colleges
