Government Report : Delhi Most Racist City in India.

    As many as 300 such cases occurred in Delhi since the panel headed by retired IAS officer M.P. Bezbaruah was formed in February. The Capital fared the poorest because of a perceived understanding gap in the city's dominant community. Almost 60 to 70 per cent of persons met by the committee said they had faced racial discrimination. The panel blamed lack of awareness about the culture of the northeast for the rising crimes. The committee interviewed people from the Northeast in Bangaluru, Chennai, Delhi, Kolkata, Mumbai and Pune.
It found, in many cases, humiliation and taunts faced by people from the northeast are not punishable offences. Incidents of teasing or use of slurs like "momos" or "chinky" are not considered a crime under the Indian Penal Code.
Under existing laws, attacks of a racial nature carry a maximum punishment of three years and a fine. The panel recommended that some offences be made non-bailable and the punishment increased. It suggested the IPC Act should be amended to make teasing and use of slurs a punishable crime.
