Anti-Ragging Regulations and Measures
Ragging and Anti Ragging
Act of Ragging is when senior students harass, abuse, or intimidate newcomers or Junior students. It frequently takes a malignant form, when newcomers in the institute may experience verbal, psychological or physical torture or abuse.
Ragging is a notorious practice in which senior students use the inferiority of their junior peers as an excuse to harass them and, most frequently, make them easy target for their own sick, sadistic pleasures. It is concealed by the pretext of "Welcoming" new college students. Those poor students who become victims of ragging not only suffer terrible bodily pain but also suffer from a lifelong dread psychosis or, even worse, drop out of college before they even begin.
The students of the National Institute of Technology Andhra Pradesh benefit from a safe and welcoming learning environment on campus. The institution safeguards new entrants from the threat of ragging. An Anti-Ragging Cell has been established by the Institute in this regard. The institution's head oversees the cell together with a number of other senior faculty members that serve on the committee. Members of the Anti-Ragging Squad have been sent from every department to oversee student behaviour on campus.
