Internal Complaints Committee


THE SEXUAL HARASSMENT OF WOMEN AT WORKPLACE
(PREVENTION, PROHIBITION AND REDRESSAL) ACT, 2013

University Grants Commission (UGC) believes that a safe and healthy environment in Higher Educational Institutions (HEIs) for women students and employees is a necessary prerequisite to quality education and research. In compliance with UGC Guidelines, Azad Hind Fouz Smriti Mahavidyalaya constituted an Internal Complaint Committee (ICC-POSH) to provide a safe and inclusive environment for girl students and women staff. The Prevention of Sexual Harassment (POSH) guidelines provide essential insights to foster a safe and supportive environment for all. ICC-POSH Cell aims to redress complaints made by women - students and staff - in accordance with ICC-POSH Regulations provided in the Act.
