W.G.R.C. was working with the objective of redressing the grievances of the female teaching and non-teaching staff and students. In 1997, the Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Vishakha and others vs. State of Rajasthan, had recognised and addressed the issue of sexual harassment at the workplace. The judgment created mandatory sexual harassment prevention guidelines for the workplace, applicable all over India. The knowledge and information about it can lead to a workplace free of sexual harassment for all persons.

The Cell was dealing with the cases/complaints of sexual harassment and any other type of harassment of the female students, teaching and non-teaching staff insidethe colleges and University. The Cell has been processing all the individual complaints and taking suitable action in the manner of UGC guideline. Besides this, several gender sensitization programmes such as meetings, seminars, workshops, rallies etc. were being organized inside the girls’ colleges and hostels of the University.University Grants Commission believes that a safe and healthy environment for women students and employees on the campus of HEIs (Higher Education Institutes) is a necessary precondition to quality education and research. The key lies in institutionalizing the best practices and standard operating that can substantively deal with women related issues on the campuses. Hence, on 6th February 2021 an Internal Committee (I.C.) was reconstituted as per UGC (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal of sexual harassment of women employees and students in HEIs regulation-2015. It will work as a task force to monitor gender equality and security in the campus of colleges, P.G. Departments and office of the Ranchi University.
