Anti Ragging Committee

Ragging in India is a damaging form of interaction of the seniors in college or school with the juniors, new entrants or first year students. Practice of familiarizing beginners with their seniors has now turned into a potent tool for ill-treating and punishing the fresher’s. Under the pretext of fun, a fresher student is often assaulted and intimidated by his seniors. This ritualized torture leaves an indelible impression on his mind. After experiencing the evil of ragging, a student develops a feeling of revenge for his ‘unjustified harassment’ and derives pleasure in ragging his juniors on his turn. So the trend goes on and students continue to suffer.
