A former students of AU who developed the anti-ragging mobile app
Influenced by the incidents of inhumane ragging episodes, an AU alumnus developed an anti-ragging mobile application having features to gather evidence, and equipped with a quick response mechanism. In a special interview with Deccan Chronicle, K. Sateesh Kumar, who is also the chairman of Eyecon Digital, said though the government and education institutions had taken steps to curb ragging, the culprits always got away scot-free due to lack of evidence.

Moreover, victim of ragging, and authorities concerned of the institution don’t come forward to file case. “The application can be downloaded from android or windows enabled smart phones. You have to register on the apps first with details like your name, institution name and phone number.
The mobile application is a part of CSR activity of the company, but government has to pay about Rs 5 lakh annually for its maintenance.
