Rs 2.5 lakh fine for ragging!

Manipal University implements tough anti-ragging measures



Speaking to Deccan Herald, MIT Director Brig Somanath Mishra said that the institute was firm on putting an end to the ragging menace and implementing measures suggested by the UGC, AICTE, Supreme Court and Raghavan Commission report.

Those found guilty of ragging will be fined a whopping Rs 2.5 lakh and could be expelled from the college. A complaint will also be lodged and the student will be handed over to the police.

Anti-ragging squads, comprising more than 100 faculty members, have been formed to keep a close watch on the activities on the campus. These squads will visit hostels, food courts and all the places on the campus. Hand books containing the details of ban on  ragging and the penalty imposed have been given to all the students, besides sensitising them on the issue.

"No compromise and short cuts. The student involved in the act will be severely punished," emphasised Brig Mishra.
