Indian Government Launched Anti Ragging Website
Megha, Updated On:19-Feb-2013
Ragging has ruined countless innocent lives and careers. In order to eradicate it, Hon’ble Supreme Court in Civil Appeal No. 887 of 2009, passed the judgement wherein guidelines were issued for setting up of a Central Crisis Hotline and Anti-Ragging database.
In accordance with the orders, UGC (University Grants Commission), Govt. of India has developed this web portal.
Union HRD Minister Kapil Sibal launched an anti-ragging website ‘www.antiragging.in‘ to help students of various universities, colleges and professional institutes to lodge online complaints against ragging or harassment and seek faster response.
The UGC-managed portal has been created by the Aman Satya Kachroo Trust in active collaboration with Rajendra Kachroo, father of Aman who was ragged to death by four of his seniors in a medical college in Himachal Pradesh in 2009.
“The Supreme Court gave order in 2009 that we should create an anti-ragging portal. Ragging is a crime which destroys a student’s confidence and even forces them to commit suicide,” Sibal said after launching the portal.
Students can also register their complaint by dialling 18001805522 as part of the facility, which will be followed up in a structured software system. “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.
“All our communication, talks and discussions would be posted on the web so that the victim has complete access to what has happened since lodging the compliant,” Kachroo said, whose trust – Aman Satya Kachroo Trust – will manage the 24X7 facility.
