About the Committee

Umeschandra College advocates the empowerment of women and has zero tolerance for sexual harassment. This institution is committed to create a safe environment for women students and employees – a gender-just environment free of violence, harassment, exploitation, intimidation and stress through creation of awareness on the issue of sexual harassment by conducting workshops and lectures by activists and academicians.

The Committee for Prevention against Sexual Harassment at Workplace at Umeschandra College had its inception in 2017. In the year 2018 the nomenclature of the Committee has been changed to the Internal Complaint Committee. The Internal Complaint Committee was formed in accordance with the guidelines on sexual harassment prevention in the workplace, issued by the Honorable Supreme Court of India in 1997 and UGC (Prevention, prohibition and redressal of sexual harassment of women employees and students in higher educational institutions) Regulations, 2015 with Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013.
