The Union government has the strength of 30.87 lakh employees. As per the census of central government employees of 2011, women found 10.93% in the total force.
Women and Child Development (WCD) Minister Maneka Gandhi told reporters that “We are going to launch an online platform where women can file sexual harassment-related complaints,” and the e-platform will be hosted on the WCD ministry’s website.
“We hope our ICCs work in such a way that hopefully, we will not have the need for using such a platform to seek redressal. Also, we have had an e-box facility for the last one year for children to file complaints anonymously. We have received hundreds of cases through that,” Maneka Gandhi said.
