To ensure zero tolerance policy in reference to the provisions of the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act 2013, the University of Delhi constituted an Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) according to the guidelines given under Section 4 (2) of the Act.

  • The secretariat of the ICC is housed at WSDC, till recent past the Directors of WSDC were chairperson of the ICC.
WSDC works closely with the ICC to implement this Act and to spread awareness about it.

In order to understand the Provision and Rules of the said Act for its precise and effective implementation, WSDC organized “in-house” workshops to further understand the nuances of the Act.
