The women's cell works to ensure a safe work environment, and to provide a mechanism for looking into situations of sexual harassment in the workplace.

Any issues relating to sexual harassment at the workplace can be brought to any of these members in confidence. In addition, do not hesitate to bring such matters to any member of the faculty or senior administration.

The women's cell has been reconstituted to broaden its representation and include external member(s). With input from experts from NGO representatives, we are actively developing a more comprehensive procedure for handling of sexual harassment cases.
