Anti-Ragging Cell

Baruipur College aims at achieving both student discipline and academic excellence. The college maintains a healthy and congenial academic environment for the students. The institution offers protection to the new entrants from the menace of ragging. In this regard, Baruipur College has constituted an Anti Ragging Cell in May, 2009. All cases of ragging are referred to this cell for prompt disciplinary action against the erring students. Posters are put on the walls to convey clear-cut messages that warn the students of the consequences of ragging. Moreover, there are drop-boxes on campus for receiving anonymous complaints from students regarding ragging.

Following members of Anti Ragging Cell have been deputed to monitor students discipline inside the campus.
