Women cops in civilian clothes, vigilance squad: the DU takes measures to control indiscipline, rags

Undercover policewomen outside colleges, anti-ragging posters on campus, a vigilante team in every college and police pickets are among the measures to be implemented at Delhi University to maintain discipline from the new academic session.

A meeting of the Delhi University Board of Trustees was held on Friday to deliberate on measures to facilitate the smooth onboarding of students at the opening of the new session.

Delhi Police officials and senior university officials were present at the meeting.

Several important decisions were taken at the meeting to ensure discipline is maintained and bullying is prevented on university and college campuses, a senior university official said.

“In this regard, colleges and departments have been requested to strictly enforce the rules and regulations issued from time to time, in particular the provisions of Ordinances XV-B, XV-C and sexual harassment of women at work. (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013 (14 of 2013),’ DU Registrar Vikas Gupta said.

Gupta said all hostel students and residents and their parents were asked to pledge to fight ragging upon admission.

“The university will set up two joint control rooms, one each in the north and south campuses (north campus phone number 27667221 and south campus phone number 24119832), from 2 November 2022 until 11 November 2022,’ he said.

“The anti-ragging posters in English and Hindi have been put up at strategic locations in Delhi University’s North and South Campuses,” he added.

Gupta said colleges, centers and hostels have been asked to restrict the entry of foreigners and prominently display the rules regarding no gagging in their respective institutions. “All colleges, faculties, departments and hostels have been requested to form an anti-ragging discipline committee and a vigilance team taking the assistance of NCC/NSS student volunteers wherever possible to monitor ragging,” Gupta said.

“There would be police pickets outside each college with special assistance for female colleges,” he noted, adding that any acts of indiscipline, robbery will be dealt with strictly under the statutes of the university.

During the meeting, police officials were asked to highlight the steps for receiving shredded complaints. ”The authorities have been informed of the online ragging. It was suggested that they report the complaint to the cybercrime wing,’ Gupta said.

The Delhi Police has assured that plainclothes policewomen will be deployed in the university as well as outside the premises of each college.

Students should ensure that their PG is duly checked by local police, as all of these accommodation facilities are regularly checked by area police for the safety and security of resident students, Gupta said.
