Ragging has been in considerable debate over a period of time. Its nature, type and prevention have become a matter of greater concern. Many organisations came forward with certain issues, remedies and procedures for handling with these situations but still the reported cases of ragging challenge the government and local authorities. Current study has been administered on 1823 of both senior and junior students of various institutions in Haryana. The present study was aimed to ascertain the reasons, circumstances and psychological impact of ragging. The study was designed in two phases: in the first phase, the information was sought from the various educational institutes, e.g., schools, colleges and professional colleges of Haryana regarding steps taken by the educational institutions to prohibit and prevent the menace of ragging. The questionnaire also tapped the level of awareness and sensitivity amongst the senior and junior students regarding the issue of ragging and the impact of the University Grant Commission (UGC) regulations.
