a) These Rules reiterate the commitment of JGU to creating and maintaining a community in which students, teachers, researchers, faculty members and non-teaching staff can work together in an environment free of all forms of sexual harassment.

b) In framing the rules and procedures laid down in these Rules, the spirit of The Sexual Harassment of Women At Workplace Act 2013, and the Supreme Court judgments mentioned in the background section have been followed; however, the rules and procedures cover a wider spectrum of sexual harassment and deal with issues in consonance with the requirements of an academic institution.

c) These Rules and Procedures apply to all students, academic staff, faculty members, and non-teaching staff on the active rolls of JGU, the Officers of JGU, the members of the Authorities and Committees of JGU as well as to service providers and outsiders who may be within the territory of JGU at the time of commission of the act/behaviour coming under the purview of these Rules.

d) These Rules would not only apply inside the campus but also on off-campus official duty (workshops, field work, group holidays/excursions organized by JGU, interviews/meetings with outside people and any other activity organized by JGU outside the campus including the period of traveling for such activity).

e) In particular, these rules and procedures laid down shall be applicable to all complaints of sexual harassment made:

i) By a student against a member of the academic or non-teaching staff or a co-student or the Officers of JGU, or the members of the Authorities and Committees of JGU; or by a member of the academic or non-teaching staff or the Officers of JGU, or the members of the Authorities and Committees of JGU against a student or another member of the academic or non-teaching staff; in either case, irrespective of whether sexual harassment is alleged to have taken place within or outside the campus

ii) By a service provider or an outsider against a student or a member of the academic or non-teaching staff or the Officers of JGU, or the members of the Authorities and Committees of JGU or by a student or a member of the academic or non-teaching staff or the Officers of JGU, or the members of the Authorities and Committees of JGU against an outsider or a service provider, if the sexual harassment is alleged to have taken place within the campus.

f) In order to implement these Rules, a Committee on Gender Sensitisation against Sexual Harassment (COGSASH) shall be appointed whose composition and mandate will be as described below.
