The Act, along with its rules, is collectively called the POSH law. The POSH Act of 2013 builds upon the Vishaka guidelines laid out in 1997 by the Supreme Court of India. The act applies to women working in the private, government, and informal sectors.

Female Students, Female Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff, should not hesitate of reporting any incident of sexual harassment by any student, faculty or Teaching and Non-Teaching Staff as a victim or as a witness. All institutions must have a committee and a separate cell to deal with these kinds of issues. If any such incident comes to the notice of the authorities, action should be taken against the erring Students/Official/Faculties members promptly under intimation of UGC.
