Ramaiah University of Applied Sciences (RUAS) has a strict, zero-tolerance policy towards ragging. Any student found to be indulging in such behaviour will face swift and severe action.
UGC Regulation on Ragging
RUAS stringently adheres to the UGC Regulations on ragging.
Accordingly, the university:
- Educates students on what constitutes ragging, the destructive impact of it, as well as the repercussions and punishments of such activity. Students are educated through skits, flash mobs, posters, and banners.
- Contact information of relevant anti-ragging authorities — including the Anti-Ragging Cell of MHRD — is prominently displayed and promoted.
A university-level Anti-Ragging Committee is formed to look into any complaints of ragging received. The Committee includes all the top officers of the University.
Meetings are conducted on a regular basis and surprise visits to the hostels are undertaken to dissuade students from indulging in ragging.
Student Disciplinary Committee
The Student Disciplinary Committee of the University mediates and tries to resolve issues between students amicably. The Committee also investigates alleged malpractices by students and doles out appropriate punishment depending on the seriousness of the issue.
