#MeToo : NCW acts on complaints received

New Delhi :The National Commission for Women or NCW had recently urged women who have come forward on social media and other platforms about their alleged harassers to send their formal written complaints and created a dedicated email ID ncw.metoo@gmail.com to receive such complaints. NCW has said it has received written complaints from various women about sexual harassment at their workplace. 

 It has now requested Secretary Information and Broadcasting (I&B) to issue directions to ensure that organisations such as printing/publishing, production houses involved in TV/film production put in place an effective mechanism for addressing such complaints including constituting internal committees in terms of the POSH Act, 2013 so that perpetrators of such crimes may be punished as per law.
