Anti-Ragging Cell

College aims to provide an environment where there are no barriers to student success and progression. If a student’s behaviour prevents others from feeling safe, secure, respected and able to learn effectively then this may result in disciplinary action. The purpose of this policy is to ensure that all instances of student misconduct are dealt with fairly and consistently and provide a clear procedure to guide both staff and students.

Ragging is prohibited under the section {2} of section 1 of the Maharashtra Prohibition of Ragging act, 1999 {Man. XXXIII of 1999).

The Anti-Ragging Committee is constituted as per the provisions contained in Clause 6.3(a) of the UGC Regulations on Curbing the Menace of Ragging in Higher Educational Institutions in the year 2009.
