Women Anti-Harassment Cell

"The task of every man is the dignity of every woman. The task of every woman is the dignity of every man." (St. John Paul II)

The Women Anti-Harassment Cell was constituted to help maintain a harmonious atmosphere at the Institute, to enable women to pursue their work with dignity and reassurance. The Cell has been working to raise awareness on gender equality issues. This Cell functions as the "Complaints Committee" as required by the "Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act 2013".

The functions of the Cell are primarily to provide them with a platform for filing their complaints and to expedite their resolution. It also provides an environment where the aggrieved person is given the confidence to air their grievances without fear of bias and criticism. It also tries to empower the female members of the College by making them aware of their legal rights and the different methods available under the legal system to redress their grievances.

From time to time the Cell conducts Seminars and Lectures by domain specialists to eliminate violence, harassment/sexual abuse of women at the workplace, to provide equal opportunities for them, and to educate men to treat women with the dignity and respect they rightly deserve as co-equal partners in the workplace.

Any aggrieved party can submit their written complaints to any member of the WAH Cell. To facilitate urgent resolution of complaint, the Cell holds meetings on a regular basis. Any complaint to the WAH Cell filed by an individual/group of individuals which has been proven to false or frivolous will result on a substantial fine which shall be imposed on the complainant or complainants, and the quantum of the fine shall be recommended by the members of the said Cell to the competent authority.

Anyone found to have harassed another will be subjected to appropriate disciplinary action, including:
- Reprimand/s and/ or written apology,
- Suspension from classes/practical work, etc.,
- Other punishment/s as prescribed by the Law, and/or the University Act.

"People, who love themselves, don't hurt other people. The more we hate ourselves, the more we want others to suffer."

The aggrieved party/individual may contact any one of us or mail to and the confidentiality of the matter reported is assured.
