Anti-ragging movement


With the situation of ragging worsening yearly, there is emerging a spontaneous anti-ragging movement in India. Several voluntary organisations have emerged, who conduct drives for public awareness and arrange for support to victims. Online groups like Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (CURE), Stopragging, No Ragging Foundation became the major Anti Ragging groups on the Internet. Among them, the No Ragging Foundation has transformed into a complete NGO and got registered as Society Against Violence in Education (SAVE) which is India’s first registered Anti Ragging non profitorganisation (NGO). These groups are working on issues related to ragging. Each of them is running anti ragging websites and online groups. The Indian media has been playing a crucial role by exposing ragging incidents and the indifference of many concerned institutions towards curbing the act. The Supreme Court of India has directed, in its interim judgement, that action may be taken even against negligent institutions.

Anti Ragging Laws in India: Some states in India have their own legislations on ragging. Some states which do not have their own legislation on ragging and therefore the ragging laws in these states are in accordance with the central legislations on ragging.

Indian Penal Code, 1860 There are provisions in the IPC which can be used by a student to register an FIR in the nearest Police Station. These provisions are: 294 – Obscene acts and songs
