In the absence of any law and for the effective enforcement of the basic human right of gender equality and guarantee against sexual harassment and abuse more particularly against sexual harassment at work places, we lay down guidelines and norms specified hereinafter for due observance at all work places or other institutions, until a legislation is enacted for the purpose,”
