The Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister of India, Prakash Javadekar, today launched an Anti-Ragging Mobile App introduced by the University Grants Commission (UGC).

Speaking on this occasion, Javadekar said this mobile app will help students register complaints to counter the menace of ragging.

The Minister said earlier one had to visit the website for registering a complaint of ragging and our record shows that timely action was taken which in turn had resulted in the decrease of such instances. But still this ill has to be eliminated completely, he said.

Javadekar said as per his knowledge in campuses majority of senior students actually help guide their juniors and properly mentor them, but in a few cases ragging happens which needs to be completely eliminated from campuses.

He said “physical or mental torture of a new student is ragging which we won’t allow, this is unacceptable and therefore this app will become a handy tool to any student who goes through such experience.”

The Minister said this app will work on Android system on which students can log in and register their complaints immediately. Accordingly all concerned will be informed immediately and action will start immediately.
