Calicut: If you are aspiring to pursue higher education in the Calicut University, make sure you eradicate all thoughts of giving or taking dowry.

According to a Times Now news reports, it is mandatory for students to submit a declaration “that they will not give, ask for or accept dowry during their marriage.” This comes in the wake of an increase in dowry-related deaths in Kerala with several groups including the state Governor Arif Mohammad Khan advocating strict measures to combat the malice.

A circular has been sent to all affiliated colleges apprising the authorities of the new rule following the Governor’s request for its implementation.

The declaration reads, “In the context of frequent reporting of dowry deaths related to domestic violence, the Hon’ble Chancellor has proposed to obtain a declaration from all the stakeholders of the Universities of not demanding or accepting dowry, directly or indirectly abetting the giving or taking of dowry. Therefore, the Vice-Chancellor has ordered to obtain a declaration in the enclosed proforma from the students and parents, at the time of admission.”

The statement added, “It is strictly directed to obtain a declaration of not demanding or accepting dowry, directly or indirectly abetting the giving or taking of dowry in the proforma attached, from each student and parent at the time of admission. It is also instructed to obtain the declaration from the students who have already been admitted during 2021-22 academic year.”

Any violation of the oath would amount to withdrawal of degrees.The students’ declaration states, “I aver in the full understanding that any breach of the rules or law relating to taking or abetting the taking of dowry shall render me liable for appropriate action including cancellation of my admission to the university / not being granted degree / withdrawal of degree.”
