The BCCI today formed a four-member internal Complaints Committee for prevention of sexual harassment against women at workplace.

The BCCI has constituted the committee in line with Sexual Harrassment against Women at Workplace Act 2013 (Prevention, Prohibition and Redressal), which states that any company should have an internal Committee that deals with any atrocities towards women.

The tenure of the members will be one year.

“This is a welcome move. It should have happened much earlier. We have a robust women’s cricket system in place along with a lot of female employees,” a senior BCCI official told PTI today.
