In India, the teachers make use of ‘punishment system’ to control the student’s behaviour and to discipline them. In psychology, punishment is defined as anything that decreases the occurrence of a particular behaviour or activities and invokes fear.
Over the years, many researchers have found that canning the children, asking to kneel on concrete stones, forcing to walk on knees etc, could trigger anger, anxiety, humiliation, injury, pain and many other psychological effects in children.
However, India promotes corporal punishment after many unpleasant incidents.
