Punjab issues strict guidelines against ragging in technical institutions
The Punjab government on Thursday issued strict instructions to all the technical institutions to ask for written undertakings from students and their parents regarding non-involvement in ragging activity.
Punjab technical education and industrial training minister Anil Joshi asked the government and private polytechnics and ITI's to get anti ragging affidavits from students as well as their parents at the time of admission.
Joshi asked the technical education department to issue instructions to all the technical educational institutions to follow the Supreme Court guidelines in this regard.
"Strict action would be taken against the institution found violating the norms," Joshi said.
All institutions have been ordered to set up a help line for the ragging victims, and the aggrieved students could lodge their complaint before the college authority.
