Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal of Sexual Harassment of Women Employees & Students at Workplace

Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal of Sexual Harassment of Women Employees & Students at Workplace

The Cell was established in 2002 with the main objective of offering security from sexual harassment of work places to the women employees as per the guidelines given by the Hon'ble Supreme Court, New Delhi and National Women's Cell, Delhi as well as the Government of Maharashtra.

The Government of Maharashtra has also taken cognizance of the problem of women employees both in the university and colleges. Both these agencies monitor the working of the cell. The cell needs to send monthly report to Delhi & Maharashtra Government.

Whenever University/College women employees face sexual harassment problems in work place the committee scrutinizes the entire case, studies the evidential proof from both the aggrieved parties and gives fair justice to the parties.

Fortunately cases in the University campus are minimal and till date from the time of its establishment only two cases have been handled by the cell.
