Ragging being an evil practice,is inhuman, illegal and punishable. It violates the discipline of an educational institution and adversely affects the standards of higher education. Ragging in educational institution is banned by the Honorable Supreme Court of India. The Court has issued mandatory orders to curb the menace of ragging in educational institutions. If an applicant for admission is found to have indulged in ragging in the past or it is noticed later that he/she has indulged in ragging, his/her admission may be refused or he/she shall be expelled from the educational institution. The punishment may also be in other forms, such as suspension from the classes for a limited period, or fine with a public apology, debarring from representation in events, withholding results,suspension or expulsion from hostel or mess, and the like. If the Head of the Institution is not satisfied with these arrangements for action, an First Information Report (FIR) can be filed without exception by the institutional authorities with the local police. The discretionary power vests solely with the University Authorities.

The HPNLU Shimla is committed to eliminate ragging in all forms. In compliance with the guidelines laid down by the Apex Court of the country HPNLU has constituted an Anti-Ragging Committee. Anti-Ragging Committee comprises of four Faculty Members nominated by the Registrar.
