India’s anti-ragging portal unveiled
Government of India launched an anti-ragging website ‘www.antiragging.in’ which will facilitate students of various universities, colleges and professional institutes to register online complaints against ragging or harassment and seek quicker action. The portal will be managed by UGC.
- The portal has been built by the Aman Satya Kachroo Trust in collaboration with Rajendra Kachroo, father of Aman Kachroo who lost his life to ragging at a medical college in Himachal in 2009.
Students can also lodge their complaint by dialling 18001805522 as part of the facility, which will be followed up in a structured software system. The portal will have 24x7 facilities.
If the complaints would be found to be of serious magnitude, they would be transferred immediately to the police, the magistrate and head of the institution. The new portal will ensure a response to the complaints filed by students within half an hour.
