Ragging is a notorious practice wherein the senior students get an excuse to harass their junior counterparts, and more often than not, make them easy targets to satiate their own perverse sadistic pleasures. In exercise of the jurisdiction conferred by Article 32 and Article 142 of the Constitution and order of The Honourable Supreme Court. To implement this rule, an Antiragging committee is formed in LKCE. Main objective of Anti Ragging committee is to create ragging free atmosphere in and outside the campus and to create awareness among students regarding acts and punishments pertaining to ragging activities.
Ragging means: Any disorderly conduct whether by words spoken or written or by an act with the effect of teasing, treating or handling with rudeness any other student, indulging in rowdy or in disciplined activities which causes or is likely to cause annoyance, hardship or psychological harm or to raise fear or apprehension thereof in a fresher or a junior student or asking the students to do any act or perform something which such student will not do in the ordinary course and which has the effect of causing or generating a sense of shame or embarrassment so as to adversely affect the physique or psyche of a fresher or a junior student.
Depending upon the nature and gravity of the offence, the possible punishments for those found guilty of ragging at the institution level shall be any one or any combination of the following:
Ragging is a problem of the students and by the students; and therefore, the solution to it also lies with the students. With ragging becoming rampant in institutes, it is about time that the student community awakens its conscience to this inhuman practice before more and more innocent students become victims of it and before more and more educational institutes are degraded by it.
