CURE is a non-profit organization dedicated solely towards the elimination of ragging and promotion of more positive ways of interaction among seniors and freshers in Indian universities. CURE was started by three students in the year 2001 as a website and has now become the most active group on ragging. It is run by alumni of IIT, MIT(USA) and those with experience in Planning Commision of the Govt. of India.
CURE: Coalition to Uproot Ragging from Education (www.noragging.com) is a research, awareness and advocacy body against ragging. Established in 2001, CURE is the first organization to take up the cause of ragging and has ever since involved in research activities involving collection and analysis of ragging data, campaigns such as printing/distribution of newsletters, slogan stickers, talk shows and working with various govt/non-govt bodies . CURE acted as a consultant to the Raghavan Committee of the Ministry of HRD, provided research data to the govt of India and was cited several times in the Raghavan Committee Report. CURE's portal (www.noragging.com) has been referenced by many institutes such as IIT, Delhi, colleges in Punjab and South India. Last year, CURE launched the first song and video on `Ragging' (www.noragging.com/video). The video has been made with a collaborative effort of the CURE team and first year students of NSIT, Delhi. The video has already made its way to MTV, NDTV and Aaj-Tak. It has also become the `Ragging Anthem' on youtube. CURE has been covered in each and every newspaper and News Channel in India across the Nation.
