News - UGC to hold film-making contest to curb ragging

news
A film-making competition will be hosted by the UGC to spread awareness about the ill-practice of ragging and its repercussions. On Friday, it issued letters to vice-chancellors of all universities and higher educational institutions regarding the launch of a National University Film Making Competition.

According to an HT report, the Commission will constitute an expert committee to select the 3 best films from the entries submitted by universities and awards of Rs 5 lakh, Rs 3 lakh, and Rs 2 lakh, respectively, would be given to the best films. As per the rules, the selected films would be the property of UGC and be uploaded on its website while giving credit to the film-maker.

"The university can promote its students and faculty to develop films on ragging. The entries could be from the university departments and affiliated colleges. The universities, through an internal selection procedure, will select the best entries to be sent to UGC. The films may be documentary/fiction films of about 5-10 minutes," read the letter by Dr Pankaj Mittal, additional secretary of UGC.

Institutions have been asked to endorse this initiative and send the 3 best film entries from their university and institutes by November 30.

"The UGC has also taken several steps, including effective launch of media campaign, for preventing ragging. Films in ragging are also uploaded on UGC website for use by higher education Institutions," reads the letter.
