Most of the students left entering universities due to ragging – Rauff Hakeem

Almost 1,987 students have left after entering universities due to ragging and this is a very serious problem. Most of them have left because of inhumane ragging within the university system, said the Minister of City Planning, Water Supply and Higher Education Rauff Hakeem joining the committee stage budget debate in parliament today.  

“The issue of ragging is a serious issue and the government has taken note of it. The University Grants Commission (UGC) has been constantly discussing the matter with the Vice Chancellors of several universities. So now we have adopted a zero tolerance policy about ragging and we are taking effective action to prevent this, but despite all the action the UGC wishes to take it still happens. The entire power to prevent these incidents is vested with the Vice Chancellors and the councils of all these universities, but we still find that despite all the action that has been taken, still these very inhumane methods are being used to carry on ragging in the universities.”
