UGC requests all the HEIs for ensuring the safety of women and providing healthy environment by putting in place foolproof mechanisms and impregnable standards of safety.

The followings are the best practices and standard operating procedures dealing with women related issues:

1. Constitute an Internal Complaint Committee (ICC) and special cell in their respective institutions to deal with the issue of gender based violence and to conduct gender sensitization programme.

2. Ensure the possible dissemination of provisions of the law pertaining to sexual harassment of women at workplace should be done.

3. Provide healthy and secure atmosphere for all women at all the places and facilities on the campus.

4. Facilitate registration of grievances related to women and sexual harassment on UGC Student Grievance Redressal Portal.
