The data on ragging was revealed in a reply given by UGC to an RTI application filed by a student of the School of Law in KIIT University, Odisha, Rohit Kumar. "I had sought the information in December 2014 and I got a response only in May 2015. Such delay in replying is a contravention of the RTI law. I had applied through the online RTI portal on December 12 through email but the UGC office claims that it received my application only on April 30, 2015. Is an email delivered in 5 months?" asked Rohit.

 

According to the RTI reply, UGC received 640 complaints in 2013 and 543 in 2014 and an FIR was filed in nine cases in 2013 and in 57 cases in 2014. Rajendra Kachroo, father of ragging victim Aman Kachroo felt it was not necessary to file an FIR in all cases. "If the university authorities can resolve the matter by punishing the guilty students with suspension or such measures, that is good enough. An FIR will just mean that the matter drags on. But in the small percentage of cases that are not settled, the UGC ought to intervene and exercise its authority over the colleges, which it does not do," said Kachroo. He added that a large number of complaints coming in from UP and Bihar could be because there was a lot of violence and lawlessness in the colleges.

[h=1]In 2013, BPUT topped number of ragging cases in country[/h][h=1][/h]BHUBANESWAR: The state-run Biju Patnaik University of Technology (BPUT) received the highest number of ragging complaints in 2013 in the entire country, the University Grants Commission (UGC) said.

 

Responding to an application under the Right to Information (RTI) Act, the UGC on May 25 said BPUT topped the list of universities across the country with maximum number of complaints of ragging in 2013. In 2014, Aryabhatta Knowledge University, Patna, earned the dubious distinction.

 

While UGC principal information officer Sunita Chugh did not specify the number of complaints, BPUT sources said 262 complaints were registered in 2013. Rohit Kumar, a law student of KIIT University, had sought the information.

[h=1]Less than 6% ragging cases become police complaints in two years[/h]New Delhi: A Right to Information (RTI) request filed by a third-year law student revealed that the University Grants Commission (UGC) received 640 complaints of ragging in 2013. In the next year, the number fell to 543.

Maximum complaints in 2013 came from Rourkela’s Biju Patnaik University and Bhopal’s Maulana Azad Institute of Technology. In 2014, the charge was led by Patna’s Aryabhatta Knowledge University.

Unfortunately, only a few of these cases were converted into police complaints. In 2013, only nine first information reports (FIR) were lodged with the police, whereas in 2014, it was 57.
