According to the third amendment, any act of physical or mental abuse targeted on another student on the grounds of caste, colour, race, gender, appearance, nationality, place of birth, place of residence, economic background and linguistic identity will not be tolerated.

The UGC mentioned that all the colleges had been asked to submit an online undertaking every academic year. The colleges and universities have to conduct workshops and seminars to create awareness on eradication of ragging.

An official of Shivaji University said that any act of ragging would lead to suspension of the candidates. The UGC has also established a toll-free anti-ragging helpline number in 12 languages. The students can call 1800-180-5522 if they find any act of ragging.

The Ministry of Human Resource Development has also granted funds to UGC to organise ant-ragging campaigns.

Cool, interesting and funny. An ardent lover of animals and gets a kick out of Chetan Bhagat and Amish Tripathi novels. My favourite novel is 'The God of Small Things' written by Arundathi Roy.
