Anti Ragging Squared
Ragging in any form is strictly prohibited within the premises of the college. Any act of ragging constitutes gross indiscipline and is dealt under the ordinance XV-C: Prohibition and Punishment for Ragging. Any act or conduct by senior students towards freshly enrolled students or towards those students who are in any way considered inferior by them which involves physical assault, violating the status, dignity and honour of women students or the students belonging to reserved categories, exposing students to ridicule and contempt and affecting their self esteem or entailing verbal abuse, aggression, indecent gestures and obscene behaviour is considered as ragging.
Each year, at the annual meeting of the staff council, Anti Ragging Committee is constituted in the college. As soon as the new session begins, the members of this committee start taking regular rounds to ensure that any act of ragging and indiscipline with the newly enrolled students is prevented in the college. The perpetrators have to face an enquiry, and strict action is taken against them if they are found guilty. This might include rustication, expelling from college, barring from appearing in the examinations or cancellation of the student’s results.
College Complaints Committee Against Sexual Harassment
This committee is constituted in each academic session to address any complaints of sexual harassment in the college. The protection of women against sexual harassment and the right to work with dignity are universally recognized human rights by international conventions and instruments such as convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against women. Anyone found guilty of violating these fundamental rights of a woman in the college is dealt with strictly by the college complaints committee against sexual harassment and suitable action is taken. The committee takes utmost care to prevent any such acts and to redress such complaints.
