‘Ministry making  efforts to check sexual harassment at workplace’
Union Minister of Women and Child Development Maneka Sanjay Gandhi has written to the various Chambers of Commerce and Industry bodies, including FICCI, CII, ASOCHAM and PHD regarding the constitution of an Internal Complaints Committee at workplace to deal with complaints of sexual harassment.

In her letter, she said that her Ministry has been receiving complaints from women working in the private sector about the absence of such a committee in their organizations. Many Members of Parliament have also personally raised their concern on this issue, she said.

The Minister has also asked them to furnish the compliance on this issue every month so that the Ministry is able to formulate a strategy towards those entities which do not comply with the provisions of Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013.
