Anti-Ragging Committee




Sexual harassment at educational institutions or workplace is considered as violation of women’s right to equality, life and liberty.

The Hon’ble Supreme Court in the case of Visaka and others vs. State of Rajasthan 1997 AIR SC 3011 also reaffirmed that sexual harassment at workplace is a form of discrimination against women and recognised that it violates the constitutional right to equality and provided guidelines to address this issue pending the enactment of a suitable legislation.

Sadguru Madhusudan Sai Institute of Medical Sciences and Research firmly believes that every student/employee has a right to study/work in an environment free from harassment, intimidation and offensive behaviour. The policy is designed to take effective measures in accordance with the applicable law to avoid and eliminate all kinds of sexual harassment.

Sexual Harassment may include any one or more of the following unwelcoming acts or behaviour displayed by any individual or group (whether directly or by implication):

  1. Physical contact and advances.
  2. A demand or request for sexual favours.
  3. Making sexually coloured remarks.
  4. Showing pornography.
  5. Any other unwelcome physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature.

Sexual harassment must not be confused with friendly behaviour or intimate exchanges if those are desired and accepted. The difference between friendly behaviour and sexual harassment is that sexual harassment is neither solicited nor accepted by the recipient, it is unwelcomed or imposed and the other is not.

In case of any complaint filed, the Gender Harassment Prevention Committee will investigate and take strict actions against the guilt
