Kapil Sibal launches anti-ragging web portal

The government on Thursday  launched an anti-ragging web portal which will help students of universities, colleges and professional institutes to report online complaints against ragging or harassment.

HRD Minister Kapil Sibal inaugurated the 'Anti-Ragging Web Portal' in the Capital. The University Grants Commission (UGC) along with Ed.CIL (India) Ltd. and Planet E-Com Solutions have developed this portal. Sibal stressed that there would be a monitoring mechanism at every level acting on the complaints. 'We will also have all information and if we find something is not being done properly, then we can take immediate steps,' he said.

Managed by the UGC, this portal has been developed in active collaboration with Rajendra Kachroo, father of Aman who lost his life to ragging at a medical college in Himachal Pradesh in 2009. The portal is a follow up to a Supreme Court judgement of May 2009 ordering implementation of ragging prevention programme as it expressed grave concern on increasing incidences of ragging in educational institutions.
