Why should I & How can I use On-Line affidavits? Why?
- It is mandatory for every student and his/her parents to submit an anti-ragging affidavit at the time of the first admission and thereafter each year at the time of annual registration. These are UGC’s regulations. 2. It is the order of the Hon. Supreme Court that contact details of students must be collected from these affidavits and stored electronically at a central location.
- Until now each college collected such information. But it was not stored in any central location. But this year the Ragging Prevention Program developed an ON-LINE procedure for downloading anti-ragging affidavits. As a result, college authorities do not have to collect information separately and compile it. It will save a lot of time and energy.
- is a simple procedure comprising 3 steps:
- Step 1: Log on to www.ANTIRAGGING.in or www.AMANMOVEMENT.org. Click on the button called – Online affidavits.
- Step 2: Fill in the information as desired and submit the form.
- Step 3: On successful completion, you will receive affidavits, both for Students and Parents, through Email.
- If you do not have an Email address please create one before you log in. If your parents do not have an EMail/Mobile/Landline Phone number please do not panic. You can give those of your friends or relatives.
