The Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (CURE) is a voluntary, non-profit NGO in India, dedicated
to the elimination of ragging in India.

    * 1 HISTORY


CURE began in July 2001,[1] in Delhi, and has grown to a membership of several hundreds, mostly students.

In February 2007, CURE reported to the Supreme Court appointed Raghavan committee on ways to prevent
ragging in Indian universities,[1] highlighting the prevalence of physical and sexual abuse in the name
of ragging.[2] CURE also highlighted institutional unwillingness to acknowledge ragging,[3] citing
loss of reputation as their reason.


CURE's stated goals are to create awareness about ragging and its ill-effects, provide alternate means of
interaction to Indian students and censure those involved in ragging. Their research points to ragging
as not being "harmless fun",[4] but the cause of 25 suicides in 7 years[3]
