The Internal Complaint Committee has been formed in Guru Nanak Institute of Technology strictly following the UGC guidelines. The Internal Complaint committee (ICC) looks after any complaints made by the students and staff members related to gender inequality or sexual harassment. The committee mostly accepts the complaints from the victim in written mode and keeps it confidential so that the victim in no way gets influenced to withdraw the complaints under the pressure of the offender(s). Any case of sexual harassment or assault in any forms is dealt strictly by the committee. The committee not only takes punitive measures against the offenders of sexual harassment but also takes initiative to promote awareness about it through sensitization programs. The ICC addresses the issues on emergency basis and takes prompt action. Thus due to this quick redressal system the students and staff feels completely safe within the campus.
The Internal Committees shall consist of the following members to be nominated by the employer, namely:—
(a) a Presiding Officer who shall be a woman employed at a senior level at workplace from amongst the employees:
Provided that in case a senior level woman employee is not available, the Presiding Officer shall be nominated from other offices or administrative units of the workplace referred to in sub-section(1):
