College in India bans mobile phones for girls...

In an incident that conforms to the prevailing gender bias in Haryana, the Priyadarshni Indira Gandhi Govt College for Women here has imposed a blanket ban on students bringing mobile phones in the college even as Govt Postgraduate College for Men, located in the same campus, has not imposed any restriction on mobile use by students.

The women's college authorities maintained that the ban had been enforced to ensure discipline in the college as it had become an instrument of disturbance in the college. The college had formed two separate committees to implement the decision against use of mobile phones by students.

 When contacted by TOI, college principal Dr S K Ahuja stated that college staff had collectively taken a decision to this effect before the start of fresh academic session last week. "We announced the decision in the general assembly on July 22 held in the college at the beginning of the session. With mobile phones in their hands, students could not concentrate on lectures during classes. Moreover, they exchange SMSs during classes. Students even bunk classes as it has become easier to communicate with their known persons outside the college", the principal stated. More...
