What constitutes sexual harassment, as defined by the Hon’ble Supreme Court is given below:
For this purpose, sexual harassment includes any unwelcome sexually determined behaviour (whether directly or by implication) as:
• Physical contact and advances;
• A demand or request for sexual favours;
• Sexually coloured remarks;
• Showing pornography;
• Any other unwelcome physical, verbal or non-verbal conduct of sexual nature.

Where any of these acts is committed in circumstances in relation to the victim’s employment or work or course of study, whether he/she is drawing salary, or honorarium or voluntary or a Student pursuing Education, when the Employee/ Student has reasonable grounds to believe that his/her objection would disadvantage his/her in connection with his/her employment or work or disrupt the course of study in the University including when it creates a hostile environment, adverse consequences might be visited if the victim does not consent to the conduct in question or raises any objection thereto – such conducts amount to sexual harassment.
