    Dnyan Prabodhini Mandal's Shree Mallikarjun College of Arts and Commerce is committed to creating and maintaining a community in which students, teachers and non –teaching staff can work together in an environment free of violence, harassment, exploitation, and intimidation. This includes all forms of gender violence, sexual harassment and discrimination on the basis of sex/gender. Every member of this college community should be aware that while this college is committed to right to freedom of expression and association, it strongly support gender equality and opposes any form of gender discrimination and violence.

    Sexual harassment has come to be widely condemned as form of human right violation and an infringement on life and liberty as defined by the Constitution of India. Such behaviors are seen to transgress common dignity, gender equality and Fundamental rights. Sexual harassment is contrary to anti-discrimination laws (article 15: “Prohibition of discrimination on grounds of religion, race, caste sex or place of birth“ and article19 (1) (g): Right to freedom which upholds a woman's right “to practice any profession or to carry in any occupation trade or business”).

    The Honorable Supreme Court of India, in landmark judgment in August 1997 (Vishakha & others v/s. State of Rajasthan & others) stated that every instance of sexual harassment is violation of “Fundamental Rights “of equality under Article 14, right against sex based discrimination under article 15, right to work of woman under article 19(1) (g) and right to life and dignity under article 21 of the Constitution of India . Another Supreme Court judgment  in January 1999 (Apparel Export Promotion Council v/s Chopra) has stated that sexually harassing behavior “needs to be eliminated as there is no compromise on such violation”. These judgments confirm India's international commitment to the International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (acceded to in 1979) and the Convention on the elimination of all forms of discrimination against woman (cedaw) ratified  1993 the Government of India was also a signatory to the resolution of the Fourth World Conference on Woman in Beijing in 1995.

    The Supreme Court judgment of 1997 makes it obligatory for every responsible person to follow the guidelines laid by the Court and to evolve a specific policy to combat sexual harassment at workplace. Educational Institutions are bound by the same directives. Following this  Shree Mallikarjun College of Arts & Commerce is committed to uphold the constitutional mandate ensuring the above mentioned human rights of all those who fall within its jurisdiction.

     

    Following Internal Complaint Committee of our College was formed on 15th June 2016. The tenure of the Committee is for three Years.
