Every college and institute is taking strict measure to prevent this menace. Instructions have been issued to protect the freshers from ragging and not to accept it in any form. They are not to compromise their self esteem. If such an adverse situation arises they must inform the authorities. There are anti-ragging committees, anti-ragging squads and wardens to take notice and strict action. If a fresher is not satisfied with the measures taken at the institute level even an FIR can be lodged with the police station of that area. The complaint can be written or oral and there are instructions to concerned authorities to treat it as confidential. This information is included in prospectus and displayed in form of notices at prominent places. Seniors are warned of consequences like getting expelled and a possibility of imprisonment also.
