- offensive verbal comments
- physical assault and/or battery
- harassing or non-consensual photography or recording

If a person engages in harassing behaviour, COMIC CON INDIA (CCI) crew/staff will take prompt action in any form they deem appropriate, including expulsion from CCI shows with no refund. Our policy applies to EVERYONE at the convention. Exhibitors, Fans (Attendees), Speakers, Guests, Professionals, Press, Crew/Staff, Volunteers, and Security are all subject to our anti-harassment policy and will be held to the same standards and disciplinary action.
Anyone can report harassment. If someone’s behavior has made you uncomfortable, or if you witness the same happening to someone else, you should immediately contact CCI Crew/Staff (T-shirt/Jacket with STAFF or Crew written on it along with a CCI Staff/Crew Badge), Security Team (in security uniform) or a Volunteer Member (T-shirt with Volunteer Written on the back along with Volunteer Badge). You may also come to CCI Show Office to report the incident.
If necessary, we will contact local law enforcement, provide escort, offer a safe place or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to make sure they feel safe for the rest of CCI.
Remember: Cosplay is not consent. Keep your hands to yourself. If you would like to take a picture with or of another CCI Fan, always ask first and respect that person’s right to say no. When at any of CCI shows, be respectful, be nice, be cool, and be kind to each other.
Comic Con India’s mission is to create a fun, safe, welcoming, awesome event where Fans of all kinds can come together and celebrate. We want you to not only have the most amazing weekend ever, but to experience it in an environment where you are safe and accepted. As Fans ourselves, we understand the importance of creating a safe space for everyone who attends CCI shows.
