NCW to submit follow up report on sexual harassment to SC

March 03, 2004 21:56 IST

The National Commission for Women will soon submit a report to the Supreme Court on the feedback it has collected since its order in the Vishaka case related to sexual harassment at work places.

According to the 1997 judgment, both institutions and employees are responsible for implementing preventive and remedial measures to make the workplace safe for women. To achieve this, institutions are required to set up a committee to hear complaints of sexual harassment at the work place.

A spokesperson of the NCW on Wednesday said, "We have been holding meetings with organisations from various states on this issue. On March 10, we have called a meeting of around 150 private organizations. Through them, we expect to get feedback from about 1,000 institutions on the level of compliance of the SC order.

"The feedback will help us in compiling the report, which will give an idea of the extent to which the judgment has been complied with," the spokesperson said.

The NCW is working on the report on its own and not under any court order.
