The University Grants Commission (UGC) has reissued guidelines stressing the importance of implementing stringent measures to combat ragging within higher educational institutions. Highlighting ragging as a criminal offense, the UGC emphasized the existing regulations designed to curb and eradicate this issue from campuses. The notice issued by the UGC firmly urges educational institutes to take proactive steps in implementing these regulations, emphasizing the need for effective monitoring mechanisms.



Additionally, the UGC provided comprehensive advice to educational institutes on strengthening their anti-ragging strategies. This includes amplifying awareness through various channels, constituting Anti-Ragging Committees and squads, establishing dedicated cells, installing CCTV surveillance at crucial locations, conducting workshops and seminars, and ensuring detailed information about designated nodal officers on all official websites.

In an effort to maintain vigilance, surprise inspections of hostels, recreational areas, canteens, and other student facilities have been mandated. Displaying sizable anti-ragging posters across significant areas of the campus, such as admission centers, libraries, hostels, and common spaces, has also been stressed. The UGC has made these posters available on their official website, urging their widespread use to raise awareness and deterrence against ragging incidents.
