Acting tough for smooth induction of freshers, DU has adopted a zero tolerance policy towards ragging for the academic session, beginning 20th July. A recent notification ruled Joint Control Rooms would be set up in both North and South Campus from 20th July to 2nd August for the same. Police Pockets would be placed outside every college, especially those meant exclusively for women.
Students caught ragging shall face suspension, expulsion or their degrees cancelled.
Eating joints too would be under strict vigil. Sensitive areas have been put under electronic surveillance. Any act of indiscipline would lead to Police intervention and action.
The varsity held a proctorial meeting with the Delhi Transport Corporation (DTC), Delhi Metro and Delhi Police earlier this week. Delhi Police agreed to deploy women police personnel in civil uniform to keep a check to curb ragging and eve-teasing incidents.
A release by the University also stated defacing of walls with graffiti and sensitive posters, unauthorised entry to hostels and campus have been prohibited. Students, hostellers and their parents have been asked to give an anti-ragging undertaking as per protocol. Station house officers are authorised to take strict action against violation.
Delhi Metro Rail Corporation (DMRC) has agreed to make announcements in the metro regarding zero tolerance towards ragging within the university.
The university notification read: “The colleges and departments have been requested to strictly enforce the rules issued from time to time, and especially the provisions of Ordinances XV-B, XV-C and the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.”
