New session – New Academic Session starts from June 2015 to April 2016

Dress Code

We at LCIT believe that a dress code helps in creating a sense of uniformity in an institution which is inhabited by people belonging to diverse cultural and economic backgrounds. Therefore there is a prescribed dress code for the students for both summers and winters.

Summer uniform

Trousers, shirt (full sleeve) with tie, belt and black shoes.

Winter uniform

Trousers, shirt (full sleeve) with tie, belt and black shoes. Blazer with the college logo.

Anti-Ragging

Ragging may include: Display of noisy, disorderly conduct, teasing, excitement by rough of rude treatment or handling, including rowdy, undisciplined activities which cause or likely to cause annoyance, undue hardship, physical or psychological harm or raise apprehension or fear in a fresher, or asking the applicants to do any act or perform something which such an applicant will not do in the ordinary course and which causes him/her shame or embarrassments or danger to his/her life.

The Karnataka Education Act, 1983 (Karnataka Act No. 1 of 1995) Section 2 (29) defines ragging as : “causing, inducing, compelling or foreign an applicant, whether by way of a practical joke or otherwise, to do any act which detracts from human dignity or violates his person or exposes him to ridicule or forbear from doing any lawful act, by intimidating, wrongfully restraining, wrongfully confining or injuring him or by using criminal force to him or by holding out to him any threat of such intimidation, wrongful restraint, wrongful confinement, injury or the use of criminal force.”

Ragging is found to take the following forms (the list is only indicative and not exhaustive) Crisp Orders: -

  • to address senior “Sir”
  • to perform mass drills
  • to copy class notes for the seniors
  • to serve various errands
  • to do menial jobs of the seniors
  • to ask/answer vulgar questions
  • to look at pornographic pictures to “shock” the fresher out of their innocence”
  • to force tot drink alcohol, scalding tea, etc - to force to do acts with sexual overtones, including homosexual acts - to force to do acts which can lead to physical injury/mental torture or death
  • to strip, kiss, etc - to do other obscenities

It can be seen from the above that most of them, except the first few, constitute perverse forms of ragging
Punishment for those who are found guilty of participation in or abetment of ragging:

  • Cancellation of admission
  • Suspension from attending classes
  • Withholding/withdrawing scholarship/fellowship and other benefits
  • Debarring from appearing at any test/examination or other evaluation process
  • With holding results
  • Debarring from representing the institution in any national or international meet, tournament, youth festival, etc.
