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.
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.
