Sri Venkateswara Veterinary University, Tirupati

RAGGING: Ragging means doing an act which causes insult or annoyance or fear or apprehension or threat or intimidation or outrage or modesty or injury to a student.

Forms of Ragging :
  • To address seniors as ‘Sir’
  • To perform mass drills
  • To serve various errands
  • To do menial jobs for seniors
  • To ask vulgar questions
  • To force to drink alcohol, scalding tea etc.
  • Sexual harassment
  • To force to do act which can lead to physical or mental injury or death
  • To do other obscenities
  • To look at pornographic pictures to shock the fresher’s out of their innocence
  • To strip, kiss etc.
  • To copy class notes for the seniors.
Cause :

The causes of ragging may be deriving a sadistic pleasure or showing off power, authority or superiority by the seniors over their juniors or freshers.

How to prevent

Ragging can be prevented by creating awareness amongst the students, teachers and parents that ragging is a reprehensible act which does no good to any one and by simultaneously generating an atmosphere of discipline by sending a clear message theat no act of ragging should be tolerated and any act of ragging should not go unnoticed and unpunished.

Anti-Ragging methods adopted by the University
  1. Anti-Ragging/Monitoring Cell

    The Antiragging Measures adopted by all the institutions of the University will be monitored by a high power committee constituted for this purpose at University level under the chairmanship of Dean of Student Affair5s. During first 2 months after the new admissions this committee will meet on every day at 4-30pm and review the situation in all the campuses based on the daily reports obtained from the Associate Deans and advise them properly.

  2. Leaflets

    A printed leaflet detailing when and whom one has to turn for information, help and guidance for various purposes, addresses and telephone numbers of such persons etc will be given to each fresh student at the time of admission, so that the Fresher need not look upon the seniors for help in such matters and get indebted to them and start doing things, right or wrong, at their behest. This will reduce their dependence on their seniors and the latter will lose the moral authority to command.

    The leaflets will also tell the freshers about their rights as bonafied students of the institution, that they should resist from doing anything against their will even if ordered by the seniors, that they leave nothing to fear as the institution cares for them and will not tolerate any atrocities against them.

  3. Display of Boards/Posters

    Board/posters have to be displayed in strategic points in hostels and colleges so that the students will be aware of evils and punishments of ragging. These posters include :

    1. Prohibition of Ragging :

      4. The full text of Act 26 is placed in the college.
    3. Important telephone numbers to be contacted at times of emergency :

      The telephone numbers of important persons like Sub inspector of police, Inspector of police, Deputy Superintendent of Police, District collector, Revenue Divisional Officer, Dean of Student Affairs, Associate Dean, Warden, Additional Wardens, Office-In-charge of Student Activities, Health centre, Medical Officers and Ambulance (University), Ambulance 108 etc. have to be displayed in the form of posters. Telephone facility is to be provided in the hostels so that the students can contact the above persons at times of emergency. A cell phone has to be kept with night was watchman for giving information to the concerned authorities about any untoward event taking place during night times.

  4. Complaint Boxes:

    Complaint boxes will be kept at college (Assoc. Deans officer and hostels so that the students may drop any complaint of ragging on them by senior students

  5. Proctorial Committee:

    This committee consists of senior faculty members (including women), all the academic functionaries (warden, additional warden, OSA, academic advisor) student representatives from different classes (including girl students) under the chairmanship of senior most faculty member. Whenever there is any complaint of ragging from any student, the Associate Dean will refer the complaint to the proctorial committee. The committee will enquire about the complaint in detail and submit the report suggesting the punishment as per the severity of the incident. The Associate Dean, will take action on the students indulged in ragging on the advise of the proctorial committee. If the Associate Dean is not satisfied with the report of proctorial committee, he can file a case with police against the students indulged in ragging. The action of Associate Dean is final.

  6. Strict Vigilance:

    Maintaining strict vigil by arranging lighting t vulnerable areas like hostel dining hall, TV rooms etc has to be maintained. Assoc. Dean may request the police to have regular visits to different places in the college and hostels. Tight security has to be arranged at all the vulnerable place round the clock.

  7. Interaction Meetings:

    It is desirable to arrange interaction meetings of students with dignitaries like District Collector, Superintendent of Police, University officers, Vice-Chancellor etc. Interaction meetings amy also be arranged with professional counselors like Prof. B.V.Pattabhiram, Yandamoori, Hypno Kamalakar, Nagesh etc.,

  8. Mentoring Cell:

    As per the suggestion of Hon’ble Supreme Court of India, a mentoring cell has to be formed in the college involving senior students as mentors to Junior students under the supervision of faculty members as detailed below.

    We recommend that there should also be a ‘Mentoring cell’ in which institution to oversee and involve senior students as mentors for the ‘freshers’. The mentoring cell should be formed at the end of every academic year where applications should be invited from students to join the mentoring cell as mentors for the succeeding academic year where application should be invited from students to join the mentoring cell as mentors for the succeeding academic year. There should be as many levels or tiers of mentors as the number of batches in the institution. The Anti Ragging Squad of the institution and the Head /Principal should be involved in selecting the first level of mentors who would be chosen from among the batch of students immediately senior to the ‘freshers’. A diverse mix of mentors would be desirable who would be selected at the ratio of one student for a certain number of ‘freshers’. It has been observed that a ratio of 1:6 is optimal. There should be a hierarchy of mentors that is for every group of six mentors chosen from the 2nd year or the batch immediately senior to the ‘freshers’, there should be one second level mentor. Then there would be one third year student per six mentors, of the second level and so on. At every level of mentors, there should be a faculty advisor. The warden and faculty would directly deal with the highest level of mentors, which is not to say that they would not interact with the other tiers of mentors but such interaction would be more indirect. Every mentor at the first level should be allowed into the hostel when ‘fresher’ join and, ‘fresher’ and mentors should be introduced to each other. The mentors would help ‘fresher’ in settling down. This makes sure that ‘fresher’ have some seniors to fall back on without the fear of ragging and would serve by way of “Peer Counseling”. This model has been implemented in some places and has been successful. The third year mentors and the faculty in-charge should oversee the working of the mentoring cell and make sure that the mentors don’t misuse their powers.

  9. Undertaking from parent and student (now admitted and continuing):

    Every year at the beginning of new academic year, all the parents and students (newly admitted and continuing) should sign the undertaking stating that they are aware of system of punishment in case of ragging other students and that in case wards become involved in any manner in any ragging case.

    Anti Ragging Oath

    I..............................................(Name of the Student) studying ............................................... (Year of study) at ....................................................................................... (Name of the College) do solemnly swear that I will not involve in any form of ragging. I will behave cordially with all the students. I will not indulge in any sort of indiscipline either in or out side the campus. I will help the newly admitted students to settle down comfortably and help them as per the need. I will abide by the rules and regulations of ragging and I am aware of the system of punishment in case of ragging other students. In case I become involved in any manner in any ragging case. I will abide by any punishment the authorities levy upon me.

  13. Press Meets:

    The Associate Deans of the constituent colleges will organize frequent press meets and request the media to give adequate publicity of negative effects of ragging and measures adopted by the University to prevent ragging mainly during first two months after new students join the college so that public awareness and aversion can be built up against ragging.

  14. Freshers Day:

    The Associate Deans of the respective college will organize freshers welcome party soon after admissions involving senior students and the faculty together so that the juniors can be properly introduced to one another. Such parties can bring out the talents in the freshers without they elements of indecency which may normally occur during ragging. Mass participation has its own built-in checks, as an over jealous person could often be prevented upon by sober elements. In the presence of the faculty, even the miniscule of misguided students, who are otherwise compulsive raggers will be forced to behave properly and not crossing the limits of decency. Exhibiting their talents in the open will help the freshers to shed their inferiority complex, remove their inhibitions and bring out the best in them.

  15. Inter house competitions:

    The students of the entire college are divided into 4 houses (Bhisma, Dhrona, Arjuna and Karna), Each house will have students of all classes. The fresh students also will be allotted to the houses as per I.D. numbers. Inter house competitions will be arranged in sports, games, literary and cultural events so thart the fresh students will participate in the competitions along with seniors of their house. This will create a friendly atmosphere among the fresh students and seniors.

  16. Punishments:

    If any student is found guilty of participation in or abetment of ragging, the quantum of punishment shall naturally, depend upon the nature and gravity of the offence as established by the proctorial committee or the court of law.

    1. Cancellation of admission.
    2. Suspension from attending classes.
    3. Withholding/withdrawing scholarship/fellowship and other benefits.
    4. Debarring from appearing for any test/examination or other evaluation process.
    5. Withholding results.
    6. Debarring from representing the institution in any national or international meet, tournament, youth festival, etc.
    7. Suspension, expulsion from the hostel.
    8. Rustication from the institution for periods varying from 1 to 2 academic years.
    9. Expulsion from the institution and consequent debarring from admission to any other Institution.
    10. Fine upto Rs.50,000/-
    11. Rigorous imprisonment upto three years (by Court of Law) etc.

    While the first 10 types of punishment can be awarded by the appropriate authority at the institution itself, the last punishment can be awarded only by a court of law.

Hon’ble speaker (Vaishnavi): Hon’ble members I raise today with heavy heart to express sorrow for the demise of Mr. Atal Bihari Vajpayee, former Prime Minister of India.

Born in Gwalior on December 25, 1924 in the central state of Madhya Pradesh. He served the country as prime minister for 13 days in 1996, 13 months in 1998 and for almost six years from 1999. In his 47 years in parliament, the former prime minister captivated the nation with his dry wit and oratory, proving that no one could work the room quite like he could.

Prime Minister please……

Prime Minister (Akhilesh Kumar Gupta):

In times of turbulence and disruption, a nation is blessed to have a leader who rises to become its moral compass and guiding spirit, providing vision, cohesion and direction to his people. And, in such a moment at the turn of the century, India found one in Atal Bihari Vajpayee, who was gifted in spirit, heart and mind.

For those of us who knew him, he was, first, the rarest of human beings, who touched and inspired everyone he met. He was compassionate to the core, generous in spirit, warm beyond measure and kind to a fault.

A life is to be judged not just by the extent of grief that follows when its light goes out. It is also to be measured by the lasting impact on the lives of people and the course of time. For that reason, Atalji was a true Ratna of Bharat. His spirit will continue to guide us as we build the New India of his dreams.

(Akhilesh translate the above speech in Hindi)

Hon’ble speaker ( Vaishnavi) :Opposition leader please…

MR Vivek Gupta: “Shri Vajpayee was a towering figure in our national life. Throughout his life, he stood for democratic values and demonstrated this commitment in all his acts, whether as a parliamentarian, a cabinet minister, or Prime Minister of India. He was a spell-binding orator, a leader of great vision, a patriot to the core for whom the national interest was paramount,”

Hon’ble speaker (Vaishnavi) Secretary general to convey the condolences of the house to the bereaved people of nation..

Sec. General: (Aman Tiwari) Yes Madam.


Hon’ble speaker (Vaishnavi): Prime minister to introduce the new minister’s please

Prime Minister

Madam speaker, it’s my pleasure in introducing to you and through you, to the house, my colleagues, the new ministers P Prudhvi Raj, Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Ms Soujanya Priya ,Minister for Electronics and Information Technology.


Speaker: now the question hour will be taken up. Question No. 101 by Prasanth Kadiyan

Member of Opposition, Prasanth Kadiyan: Madam Speaker,

Drought impacts the poorest. It has been well documented that a poor farmer takes three to four years to recover from a drought, depending on the severity. On an average, India’s rainfed regions suffer from drought every three years. Often the drought persists for three to six years and affects availability of water for people and livestock and crop and fodder production. Keeping in view of the drought affected various parts of our country last year

Will the Minister of AGRICULTURE AND FARMERS WELFARE be pleased to state:

The details of drought affected districts in various States of the country during the last three years and the current year and the details of the drought affected areas declared. I would also like to know the details of the funds released by the Government and spent in drought affected districts.

Hon’ble speaker: Hon’ble Min. Of Agriculture & Farmer’s welfare

Hon’ble Min. Of Agriculture & Farmer’s welfare: (V Sreekar)

Madam, the drought affected states during 2015-16, 2016-17 and 2017-18 are placed at Annexure -I. Further, the details of the assistance sought by the States and the assistance approved from National Disaster Response Fund (NDRF) by the High Level Committee during the above mentioned periods are placed at Annexure-II. None of the State has reported drought in 2018-19 so far. The State Government is primarily responsible for providing necessary relief measures in the wake of natural calamities, including drought. For undertaking relief measures, funds are available with the State Government in the form of State Disaster Response Fund (SDRF). Additional financial assistance, over and above SDRF, is considered from NDRF for natural calamities of severe nature and is approved on the basis of Memorandum received from the State Government, in accordance with established procedures. The State Governments are responsible for the disbursement of funds in drought affected areas.

Hon’ble speaker: Do you have any supplementary questions please???

Yes.. Mr Dhiraj

Mr Dhiraj: Madam speaker, providing employment in the drought areas is essential as a mitigation measure for the financial assistance to the families. I wanted to know the details of works undertaken & criteria adopted for drought affected districts under Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Scheme (MGNREGS) during the last three years and the current year; and the steps being taken to relax or increase the number of person days in drought affected areas in Andhra Pradesh.

Hon’ble Min. Of Agriculture & Farmer’s welfare:
  1. : The Mahatma Gandhi National Rural Employment Guarantee Act (MGNREGA) is a demand driven programme having bottom up approach. Planning and priority are set up at the Gram Sabha level. The details of works for the last three years and current financial year as on 03.08.2018 are provided in the report given to the honourable members.
  2. : The MGNREGA provides for at least 100 days of wage employment to every rural household whose adult members are willing to do unskilled manual work. Forest Rights Act (FRA) beneficiaries are entitled to 150 days of wage employment per household in a Financial Year. An additional 50 days of wage employment are provided over and above 100 days in the notified drought affected areas of the States/UTs on recommendation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare. During current financial year 2018-19, on the recommendation of the Ministry of Agriculture and Farmers Welfare, the additional wage employment of 50 days over and above 100 days has been provided to drought notified 23 Mandals in five districts of Andhra Pradesh.

The Government is actively engaged with the State Government including Andhra Pradesh in establishing systems that ensure provision of work as per demand. To generate awareness about the provisions of the Scheme and to provide adequate employment opportunities to rural households under MGNREGS, all States/UTs have been requested to (i) initiate appropriate Information Education and Communication (IEC) campaigns including wall paintings for wide dissemination of the provisions of the Act, (ii) prepare plans in a participatory mode and approve them in the Gram Sabha.

Hon’ble Speaker: Yes Ms Naga Sravani

Ms Naga Sravani:

Madam speaker, Will the Minister of RURAL DEVELOPMENT be pleased to state:

Whether the Government has taken cognizance of the discrepancies and delay in the payments of wages under MGNREGS; and if so, the details thereof along with the remedial measures taken in this regard?

Minister for rural development: (Harika)

Madam speaker, efforts have been made by the Ministry to reduce the delay in payment of wages to the MGNREGA workers viz., timely release of funds, payment through National Electronic Fund Management System (NeFMS) for direct payment of wages into workers account, issued guidelines for monitoring of timely payment and enabling appropriate provisions in NREGA Soft to monitor timely payment of wages.

Hon’ble speaker: Do you have any supplementary questions please???

Centres, 02 Project Directorates, 22 All India Coordinated Research Projects (AICRPs) and 10 Network Research Projects, and in active collaboration with State Agricultural Universities (SAUs) is engaged in the development of eco- friendly, improved crop varieties/ hybrids, to enhance crop productivity and ensure food and nutritional security in the country.

These schemes are crop or technology specific, and every AICRP scheme is distributed in different areas across the country. The main emphasis has been on development of trait-specific high yielding crop varieties and hybrids, specific to specific areas/agro-climatic zones. As a result, since May 2014 to till date, a total of 795 stress tolerant, high yielding, agro-climatic zone specific varieties have been developed, which comprised 437 of cereals, 116 of oil seeds, 112 of pulses, 62 of fibre crops, 46 of forage crops and 22 of sugarcane. Development of varieties is a continuous process as per the mandate of the crop based institutes. As a result of the concerted efforts by National Agricultural Research System (NARS), a number of drought and flood tolerant/resistant varieties have been developed, the details of which has been given in Annexure-I of the report laid on the tables.

Under National Innovations on Climate Resilient Agriculture (NICRA), a network project of ICAR, institutes are aiming to enhance resilience of field crop genotypes to climate change and climate vulnerability through conducting strategic research and technology demonstration. State of the art infrastructure facilities like High Throughput Plant Phenomics and rainout shelter facilities were established at core institutes of ICAR to screen and characterize number of germplasm lines and use in future breeding programs. Collection and characterization of germplasm lines from different locations across the country have been undertaken by ICAR institutes. Efforts are also made to isolate genes responsible for drought tolerance for further utilization in crop improvement programmes. Under this programme, the genotypes identified for flood/drought are used as donor parents in breeding programmes.

Further, in AICRPs, the advanced breeding lines generated at all these centres are nominated and evaluated in hot spot areas in AICRP program along ith checks for 3 years in initial variety trial and advance variety trial 1 & 2 and are released when they show superior performance over the checks under the respective stress areas.

Miss A Tanuja:

The recent floods in Southern Part of India especially in Kerala have caused great destruction to human lives and properties.

Hon’ble Speaker: Minister for Home Affairs to react….

Arun Kumar: (Minister for Home Affairs)

Madam Speaker, The whole world is extending a helping hand towards Kerala at this juncture. In line with the existing policy, the government is committed to meeting the requirements for relief and rehabilitation through domestic efforts only. The foreign money could only be donated through Indian-origin individuals or foundations. India has a record of refusing foreign aid after disasters, turning down foreign help after the 2004 tsunami. We deeply appreciate offers from several countries, including from foreign governments, to assist in relief and rehabilitation efforts after the tragic floods.

Similar conditions were prevailing in the other states like Bihar and Orissa, who is demanding for the special status. Why only A.P is given due credit in this regard?

Minister for Home Affairs: (Arun Kumar)

Madam Speaker, As a result of the bifurcation of the state, Andhra Pradesh lost its capital Hyderabad to Telangana. Hyderabad is one of the fast developing cities in India and has an annual GDP greater than even Chennai.

Before the separation, Hyderabad was alone generating Rs.70,548 crore as revenue. Although it was decided that Hyderabad would be the common capital for 10 years, everyone knew it the Telangana government took complete hold of the capital after the state was divided. So, Andhra Pradesh was left with no capital, lack of source of income and also a huge amount of debts. The situation is different when compared to the other mentioned states

Member of Parliament: (V Sreekar): I wish to elaborate the house on the hardships of the A.P in recent years

“Telangana is the Old State with New Name. AP is the New State with Old Name. It is AP which needs to built a new capital city. It is AP which paid

hefty cost and is facing several challenges after the division,” People of Andhra Pradesh were sentimentally bond to the special status. It is not appropriate to compare A.P with the remaining states.

Opposition Member: (Prasanth Kadyan) Madam speaker, I would like to know why there is a need for the special status when the special assistance is being provided.

Minister for Home Affairs: As per the regular fund sharing between the states and special assistance, AP was allocated only a meagre amount of Rs 1800 Crore which is not sufficient to bridge the revenue deficit only. In this regard, it is highly necessary to grant special status to the A.P for providing the additional financial assistance to the state

Opposition leader: Madam, I would like to know from the Prime Minster about the details of Special development package. Why is such package being provided exclusively at this juncture? What are the measures being initiated from the government side for the construction of new capital city?

Hon’ble Speaker:

Prime Minister Please……….

Prime Minister: (Akhilesh) Andhra Pradesh is having 7 backward districts from North coastal Andhra and Rayalaseema. Special monetary support to these districts is quiet essential for improving the infrastructural facilities and for an overall development of these areas.

My government is committed whole heartedly and striving for the implementation of the “The Andhra Pradesh Reorganisation Act, 2014”. We assure

  1. Financial assistance in terms of grants to the government of A.P for the completion of Polavaram project and for the construction of world class capital city
  2. Establishment of railway zone with head quarters at Visakhapatnam
  3. Inclusion of more cities under smart city Misiion.
  4. Establishment of All india institutes like AIIMS, IIT’s

From this floor of the house, I assure that the Government of India will extend it support in making the Sunrise state of Andhra Pradesh.

Hon’ble Speaker: the question is whether “THE ANDHRA PRADESH REORGANISATION (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2018 is to be considered

Those in favour will say ‘Aye’ (Majority of members say ‘Aye’) Those against will say ‘No’ (a minority of the members will say ‘No’)

I think the Ayes have it, the Ayes have it, the Ayes have it. Leave is granted. minister to introduce the bill.

Minister of Home Affairs: Hon’ble speaker I introduce the bill, THE ANDHRA PRADESH REORGANISATION (AMENDMENT) BILL, 2018.

Hon’ble Speaker: The house is adjourned to meet at 11 AM tomorrow.
