Anti-ragging Committee



About the Committee

To curb the menace of ragging and to maintain a safe and conducive learning environment on campus, the college has an Anti-Ragging Committee, which is constituted by a dedicated group tasked with ensuring the elimination of ragging from the college premises. The committee actively engages in spreading awareness about the negative consequences of ragging, particularly at the commencement of the academic year, and endeavours to prevent such conduct from occurring inside and outside the college campus. The committee has been constituted for three years and includes representatives from civil administration, the Department of Police, local media, NGOs, PTAs, non-teaching staff, and students.


Objectives of the Anti-Ragging Committee:

  • Prevent incidents of ragging within the college campus. This includes both physical and mental harassment of new students by their seniors.
  • Create awareness among students, faculty, and staff about the negative consequences of ragging through orientation programs, workshops, and awareness campaigns.
  • Develop and implement comprehensive anti-ragging policies that clearly define the prohibited actions and the consequences for engaging in such activities.
  • Receive and address complaints related to ragging. The committee ensures a confidential and efficient process for reporting incidents, encouraging students to come forward without fear of reprisal.
  • Recommend prompt and appropriate disciplinary actions against individuals or groups after investigation to the management. This may include suspension, expulsion, or legal consequences, depending on the severity of the incident.

Functioning of the Committee

  • The committee meets at the beginning of the academic year every year to plan awareness programmes and formulate policies in compliance with the regulations of the UGC, centre, and state governments.
  • The committee receives a duly completed affidavit from the students in support of their anti-ragging position.
  • Conduct orientation programmes for the senior students regarding the current Kerala Prohibition of Ragging Act in the state, the policies of the college, and relevant orders of the Honourable Supreme Court and High Court.
  • Conduct orientation programmes for the new students to educate them about the college’s policies on ragging and the support available to them. This helps in creating a sense of security among newcomers.
  • Establish a confidential and accessible mechanism for reporting ragging incidents. This includes a dedicated helpline, an online portal, and a physical dropbox, ensuring that students can report incidents without fear of retaliation.
  • Investigate reported incidents promptly and fairly and take appropriate actions based on the severity of the ragging incident.
