Keeping students engaged in co-curricular activities thereby facilitating them in their overall development discourages and prevents in negative acts like ragging.

He was addressing the anti-ragging committee meeting at the college when he underlined the need for perfect understanding between seniors and juniors which is paramount in creating a friendly relationship and expressed happiness that awareness has increased among the students to put an end to the obnoxious practice of ragging.
While detailing about the Ragging Act and the punishment with imprisonment to students, he made an appeal to parents to make it a point to interact with their wards daily since conversing with them in a friendly manner would bring them closer. Moreover, they too in turn will have a feeling that their parents are caring about them. Lack of proper parent-children relationship is the cause for children joining bad company of friends.
Urging students to focus on study and should not indulge in any form of ragging, he said that ragging is a punishable offense, if it is proved. The person affected by any form of ragging should give a complaint within 72 hours of the incident. The college should also initiate an enquiry and should complete within 72 hours after receiving it. If the act comes under ragging and proved, this has to be brought to the University, UGC, Higher Education department and Police Station.

Hence students should give top priority to the education and moral behavior.
