In fact, a student's single call will immediately go to the head of his institution and the district authority. A supervising authority, likely to be an NGO, will also get to monitor what action has been taken on a student's complaint. The helpline (1800-180-5522) is operating round-the-clock and function as a watchdog. Students can also file complaints through email at helpline@antiragging.net .Once a student calls and registers a complaint, the process of giving him assistance will start within 15 minutes.
