A pioneering survey by the NGO Centre for Transforming India has found evidence of rampant sexual harassment of women employees even in the classy, knowledge-driven environs of the Indian information technology and information technology-enabled services (IT/ITES) industries.

It also reveals that though most IT/ITES companies have some sort of mechanism for dealing with such offences, large numbers of women employees are unaware of them and the guidelines too are not strictly followed.

Sample size: 600 Cities surveyed: Delhi and NCR, Mumbai, Pune, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad
