Vellore Collector warns against ragging students


Vellore Collector R. Nanthagopal has asked the managements of colleges in Vellore district to advice and warn their students against the practice of ragging in colleges and hostels.

Severe action would be taken against the students who indulged in ragging despite the warnings, and they would be expelled from the college, he said while presiding over a meeting of anti-ragging committees of colleges held here recently to review the anti-ragging measures taken in the colleges.

The Collector pointed out that the government has introduced stringent laws to prevent and punish ragging activities in colleges. Ragging activities were found to be more severe in professional colleges. The government has been issuing guidelines to the students to avoid ragging.

Severe action would be taken against the students who flout the guidelines. The college principals should come forward to punish students who indulged in ragging. No lenience should be shown to them, he told the meeting.

Mr. Nanthagopal said that during the current academic year, colleges and hostels would be monitored through vigilance committees.

Stringent action would be taken against the students who were caught red-handed by the vigilance committee members while indulging in ragging, he said, and urged the managements of colleges to cooperate in making Vellore district free from ragging.

The Collector said that complaints on ragging can be communicated to the Collector (9444135000) or Personal Assistant (General) to the Collector (9445008159) either through voice call or SMS.

The details of the complainants would definitely be kept confidential, he added.
