State Human Rights Commissions (SHRC) Objective
It is the responsibility of the organisation to ensure a safe, secure and congenial work environment where employees will deliver their best without any inhibition, threat or fear. In pursuance of this objective, we have evolved a "Sexual Harassment at the Workplace (Prevention and Redressal) committee". The approach is to spread awareness about the consequences of sexual harassment at workplace and thereby prevent any occurrences. In the event of such an occurrence, the committee will provide the framework for action.
