The Union HRD Minister shared the data on complained reports to the University Grants Commission (UGC) in response to a written question in the Rajya Sabha on 23rd July 2018. The steady increase in the number of ragging reported in universities and higher education institutes has doubled up in the last three years, according to the data from the HRD Ministry data.

The number of complaints of ragging received in 2015 was 423, most of them being from West Bengal. The number rose to 515 in 2016 and 901 in 2017, according to the data. Last year, maximum complaints were received from Uttar Pradesh, Madhya Pradesh and West Bengal.

“Out of a total of 1,839 complaints of ragging received by the UGC during the last three years, students have been punished in 812 cases, including suspension in 309 cases,” Javadekar said.

The number rose to 5,215 in 2016 and 901 in 2017, according to the data. “On basis of the report, the institution takes action against the culprits and if requested sends an action taken the report to the HRD Ministry or the UGC,” Javadekar added.

“On receipt of a complaint of ragging, the educational institution concerned constitutes an anti-ragging committee to examine and investigate the incident and to submit a report to the institution. “On basis of the report, the institution takes action against the culprits and if requested sends an action taken the report to the HRD Ministry or the UGC,” Javadekar added.

Ragging is now been replaced by nagging. Ragging was meant to break the practices misused by the students in the past decades which turned into a criminal offense.
