Ragging? Onus now on parents PDF Print E-mail

Bangalore: You will be responsible for your child’s behaviour on campus. Medical colleges/universities will now also seek character certificate from every student, which will detail their behavioural pattern.

Stung by increased incidents of ragging on campuses, the Medical Council of India (MCI) has issued fresh guidelines. Every college/university must take an annual undertaking signed by each fresher/senior and parents that they will not indulge in ragging. If found guilty, college can proceed against the students. “Such an undertaking will be furnished in English and in vernacular (mothertongue of the parent) at the beginning of each academic year,’’ sources said.

MCI has also asked colleges/universities to alter their academic calendar to ensure there is a one- or two-week gap between the date of joining for ‘freshers’ and ‘seniors’. This is to ensure that classes for seniors commence later so as to enable freshers familiarize themselves with campus environment and adjust to sudden changeover from schools to higher education.

Institutions must constitute ‘mentoring’ cell to oversee and involve senior students as mentors for freshers. Further, every college must have an anti-ragging committee and anti-ragging squad comprising teachers/police. “At the beginning of the academic year, principal must have joint sensitisation programme with freshers and seniors along with anti-ragging committee members,’’ sources said.

With majority of the ragging incidents taking place in hostels, the MCI has told institutions to ensure that private lodges/hostels outside campuses must be registered with local police. Permission to start such a hostel or their registration must be recommended by the heads of institutions.


In case ragging victim and his/her parent/guardian are not satisfied with action taken by college/university, institution must file FIR

Every institution must ensure remedial action is initiated and completed within a week of the incident to ensure that evidence is not tampered

Complaint can be oral or handwritten and even from third parties


Colleges must conduct anonymous random survey across entire first year batch every fortnight during first three months of academic year

Every institution must engage professional counsellor during admission time to counsel freshers to prepare them for life ahead, specially for life in hostels

Brochures/prospectus must have regulations against ragging and consequences of indulging in it.
