The Delhi government has issued fresh directions to all schools in the capital to ensure Internal Complaints Committee (ICC) is in place to deal with complaints of sexual harassment.
“As per the provisions under the Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace Act, 2013, all schools are directed to ensure constitution of the ICC,” the Directorate of Education (DoE) said in its latest communication to school principals.
The committee is supposed to have not less than four members, including presiding officer in the ICC and the tenure of all the members, including the presiding officer, shall not exceed three years from their date of nomination.
