Kanpur: With the academic session
commencing on Monday, IIT-Kanpur has asked all its new students to
give an affidavit pledging not to indulge in ragging.

All students have to submit a signed affidavit to the
institute that disciplinary action can be initiated against
them if they are found involved in any kind of ragging,
institute`s registrar Sanjeev Kashalkar said.

As many as 1,200 students -- 800 for under-graduate
and 400 for post-graduate courses -- are likely to have taken
admission in the institute during the academic year 2011-12.

Classes will start from July 25 following an
orientation programme for new students, Kashalkar said.
