COMPLAINT AGAINST SEXUAL HARASSMENT (CASH)

There is a confusion and ignorance about women rights, question of sexuality, interaction among peers, norms of masculinity and femininity. In educational institutions and work places in almost all sectors women are harassed and tortured. In order to prevent such situations and to provide justice and create an environment conducive to work and study without fear or harassment, a committee is functioning since 2014 in our institution. The committee was formed as per the direction of U.G.C.
