DU takes steps to ensure ragging-free campus

New Delhi: With the academic year about to begin, the Delhi University takes a slew of measures to ensure ragging-free and disciplined campus.

In its proctorial meeting with officials of the DTC, Delhi Metro and the Delhi police held today, decisions to make the campuses women-friendly were also taken.

The university will set up two control rooms in North and South campus from July 20 to August 2 for easing the induction process of the freshers.

The Delhi police will deploy women police personnel in plain clothes in the varsity premises to curb ragging or eve- teasing incidents, according to a release issued by the university.

All colleges will get police picket points with a special assistance to women colleges. Besides, all eating joints on the campus will be under extra vigil.

“The Delhi Metro has been requested to make announcements in trains and stations about the varsity being intolerant towards ragging,” the release said.

Defacing of walls with graffiti and sensitive posters, unauthorised entry of outsiders to hostels have been prohibited, according to the release.

Sensitive areas in the campus have been put under electronic surveillance as a measure to curb ragging and maintain discipline.

Ragging can be reported to on national anti-ragging helpline 1800 180 5522 or the North Campus control room (27667221) or on South Campus number 24119832.
