University Grants Commission (UGC) has adopted rules and regulations for curbing the menace of the problem of ragging in Higher Educational Institutions in 2009. These are in pursuance to the Judgment of the Hon’ble Supreme Court of India dated 08.05.2009 in Civil Appeal No.887/2009. The UGC had notified the Regulations as “Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational institutions, 2009”. These regulations are mandatory for all higher educational institutions in the country.
UGC has defined ragging in the 3rd Amendment of the above regulation in 29th June of 2016 as- “Any act of physical or mental abuse (including bullying and exclusion) targeted at another student (fresher or otherwise) on the ground of colour, race, religion, caste, ethnicity, gender (including transgender), sexual orientation, appearance, nationality, regional origins, linguistic identity, place of birth, place of residence or economic background.
Again in compliance of the 2nd Amendment in UGC Regulation “Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational institutions, 2009”, it is compulsory for each student and his/her parent/Guardian to submit an online undertaking each academic year at either of the two designated web sites, namely, www.antiragging.in and www.amanmovement.org
As part of UGC’s initiative towards reduction of compliance burden of its stakeholders, UGC has revised the procedure for students to file online Anti Ragging Affidavit. The revised procedure is as follows:
Step 1: A student will submit his/her details on the same web sites (www.antiragging.in and www.amanmovement.org) as before; read and confirm that he/she and his/her parents/guardians have read and understood the regulations on curbing the menace of ragging. He/She will confirm & agree that he/she will not engage in ragging in any form.
Step 2: The student will receive an email with his/her registration number and a web link. The student will forward the link to the email of the Nodal officer in his/her university/college. (Please note that the student will not receive pdf affidavits and he/she is not required to print & sign it as used to be the case earlier.
UGC adopted a National Helpline Toll Free Number for Students in distress due to ragging related incidents as-
1800-180- 5522 (24×7 Toll Free) or
