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.
