Clothes that expose excessive bare skin or are otherwise revealing are deemed inappropriate.

    • All delegates are expected to remain "in character" while at WIMUN India by consistently advocating the interests and representing the policies of the country assigned. To act "in character" also entails displaying respect for the opinions and ideas of fellow delegates, even if these opinions and ideas conflict with a given delegate's own country's priorities. Delegates are expected to prepare adequately for active participation in committee sessions.

      • Delegates found to be in violation of WIMUN India's Security Policies may be barred from further participation at WIMUN India and/or expelled from the conference without refund at the discretion of the Secretary-General.

    • All Faculty Advisors are responsible for the safety, well-being, and conduct of their delegates.

      • The educational quality of WIMUN India is primarily dependent on all delegates' active and professional participation. Faculty Advisors can ensure this by monitoring their student's attendance at committee sessions and helping them understand the skills of diplomacy as practiced at WIMUN India.

      • During the conference, Faculty Advisors are encouraged to attend Faculty Advisor meetings and feedback sessions, to observe their students from the back of committee rooms, and even to advise students on substantive issues. However, participation in the committee process must be left to the delegates and the WIMUN India staff. Faculty Advisors may not participate in the writing of resolutions or in caucusing WFUNA International MUN 2019 Terms and Conditions activities or otherwise engage in the committee process.

      • Faculty Advisors are required to assist the WIMUN India staff in enforcing Security Policies, Dress Code, and the WIMUN India terms and conditions with regards to their school's delegates. Faculty Advisors are responsible for ensuring that their students follow the terms and conditions.

    • Faculty Advisors are responsible for ensuring that their students follow the terms and conditions. WIMUN India will not tolerate any instances of harassment or discrimination, including but not limited to those based on race, gender, sexual orientation, national origin, religion, age, or disability. Further, WIMUN India will not tolerate any instances of inappropriate behavior or unwelcome advances of a sexual nature. If any delegate, staff, or Advisor believes they have encountered harassment or discrimination, which results in a hostile working environment or disparate treatment, they are encouraged to bring it to the attention of the Secretary-General or another member of the Secretariat. The Secretary-General and Conference Director will then evaluate the report and involve the appropriate personnel which may include Faculty Advisors.

    • All delegations are responsible for paying for and filling all slots assigned through our country assignment process.

    • All delegations registered by our priority deadline of December 20, 2018, will be given preference for country assignments. Country assignments will be issued on a rolling basis, dependent on receiving payment of at least 50% of the delegation's total fees for WIMUN India. Once all countries have been assigned or no seats remain, schools / individuals that have completed registration will be placed on the wait-list and receive country assignments as they become available. No delegate / delegation is guaranteed acceptance to WIMUN India, even if, you register before the Priority Registration Deadline.

    • While participants in private delegations will be eligible for individual awards and recognition, the MUN club or private delegation as a whole will not be eligible to receive a delegation award. This is because the participants will represent various schools and the delegation awards are given to recognize the efforts put in by the schools to grow MUN within their ecosystem.
