Policy for Prevention of Sexual Harrasment

Our Commitment to Safety and Respect

The HVPS College of Law’s ICC functions as an integral element of our dedication to establishing a safe and all-encompassing atmosphere. Constituting a diverse group of academic personnel, administrative personnel, and student delegates, the committee is committed to preserving the tenets outlined in the Visakha case guidelines.

Confidential and Impartial Resolution

The ICC functions as a confidential and impartial platform for individuals to express their grievances pertaining to gender-based discrimination and pursue remedies. Adhering to the tenets of natural justice, the committee prioritizes the protection and privacy of complainants while ensuring equitable and impartial inquiry procedures.

Preventive Measures and Awareness Initiatives

Beyond addressing complaints, the ICC actively engages in preventive measures, including awareness campaigns, workshops, and training sessions. These initiatives aim to educate our college community about their rights and responsibilities and promote a shared understanding of respectful and inclusive behavior.

Responsive Action to Student Suggestions

HVPS College of Law takes student suggestions seriously and has a track record of responsive action. Past initiatives include skits, meetings with local law enforcement, peace marches, and collaboration with authorities to enhance security measures. The college has displayed a strong stance against harassment with banners and vigilance squads.

An advanced complaint management system is in place at our institution. The college administration has implemented an open-door policy, a suggestion/complaint box, an anti-ragging cell, and the Women Development Cell (WDC) and Internal Complaints Committee [ICC], Anti-Discrimination Cell and Minority Cell.

Together, we contribute to the creation of a positive and enriching educational experience for all.

Facilities offered by the college


Our college offers mentorship to students for freely discussing their educational, and emotional problems. Regular parent meetings are conducted and if a student is irregular the root cause of the problem is deciphered. When our team of female students goes outstation to participate in camps, competitions, or industrial visits, they are accompanied by female teachers.


Our College has an excellent counselor having experience working with street children and adolescents. They also approach her to discuss their problems, and, if there are serious issues; she informs the head of the institution and parents to refer the patient to a clinical Psychologist. Students are counseled on stress and anger management.

The formally constituted Vigilance squad of the college takes frequent supervisory rounds of the college to ensure the safety of girls. The Security personnel and watchman also ensure that students are safe on the premises. The college has CCTV at the entrance, canteen, labs and all floors. Video surveillance acts as a deterrent to any untoward incidents.


The girls’ common room is a place for female students to relax.  It is well-ventilated. A separate suggestion box is kept in the girls’ common room. Some female attendants ensure the safety of girls and also maintain cleanliness in the girls’ common room.
