    Objectives of the Committee
    The Internal Complaint Committee is an educational resource as well as a complaint redressal mechanism for the members of faculty, staff and students of the VPKBIET. Its mandates are:
    To provide a impartial, confidential and supportive environment for members of the campus community who may have been sexually harassed
  • To advice complainants the means of resolution as specified by the legislation
  • To ensure just and timely resolution of sexual harassment complaints
  • To provide counselling and support services in the campus
  • To promote awareness about sexual harassment through educational initiatives that encourages and nurtures a respectful and safe campus environment.

    The committee seeks to inform the campus community of their right to a respectful work and learning environment. It believes that if we practice respecting each other, exercise empathy in our interactions andif we do not hurt anyone through what we say or do, then, we can create a campus that is free of sexual harassment.

    The Committee aims to achieve these goals through:

    Complaint Redressal: As per the act ‘The Sexual Harassment at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal) Act, 2013’, appropriate action will be taken once the complaint is filed.

    Spreading of Information: by providing materials on website, posters, banners and handouts etc. to the VPKBIET campus community.

    Awareness Workshops: for faculty, non-teaching staff and students with an aim to develop safe and comfortable atmosphere of mutual learning.

    Counselling – Confidential counselling service is an important service as the sexual harassment cases are rarely reported and is a sensitive issue. Counselling provides a safe space to speak about the incident and how it has affected the aggrieved woman.
    Who can file the Complaint to the Internal Complaint Committee?
    Any student, teaching or non-teaching staff may lodge a complaint against a student, teaching or non-teaching staff.
