Sensitization, Prevention and Redressal of Sexual Harassment (SPARSH)

Gender equity, including protection from sexual harassment and right to work with dignity is universally recognized basic human right. Eradication of social evils has been the prime aim of Constitution of India. Article 15 of the Constitution of India prohibits discrimination on grounds of religion, race caste, sex, or place of birth. Article 42 makes provision for securing just and human conditions of work. Article 51-A(e) makes it incumbent on every citizen to promote harmony and spirit of the common brotherhood amongst all the people of India transcending religious, linguistic, and regional or sectional diversities; to renounce practices derogatory to the dignity of women. India is also a signatory to the convention on the Elimination forms of discrimination against women." Resultantly, the Central University of Karnataka introduced and enforced Ordinance titled "Sensitization, Prevention and Redressal of Sexual harassment."
