New Delhi: March 27,2017

The Ministry of Women and Child Development has developed a standardized and detailed training module for capacity building of Internal Complaints Committees of all Central Ministries and Department. These Committees have been formed under Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal) Act, 2013. The module has been developed in consultation with Institute of Secretariat Training and Management of DoPT, Government of India. 29 institutions in Government as well as private sector have also been identified and empanelled who are capacitated to undertake training programmes on Sexual Harassment of Women at Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition & Redressal) Act, 2013 for any organization.

 

The Minister of Women & Child Development, Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi had called a meeting of the Heads of Internal Complaints Committees (ICCs) of the Central Government Ministries/Departments in October, 2016. One of the issues discussed during the meeting was that the heads of ICCs often do not have clear understanding of the legal nuances and administrative issues involved in cases of sexual harassment at workplace.  Accordingly, it was decided that a training module will be developed by the Ministry, and the heads of ICCs of Central Government Ministries/Departments will be called for training on these issues. It was also decided that a network of institutions will be capacitated to undertake trainings for other organizations also.

 

Smt Maneka Sanjay Gandhi has said that the first training programme for the heads of ICCs of the Central Government Ministries/departments will be organized in the Ministry during the second half of April, 2017. The Minister said that the WCD Ministry will ensure that all the heads of ICCs of all Central Government Ministries are trained by June 2017.
