The Supreme Court agreed on January 4, 2018, to examine a plea alleging non-implementation of the law to prevent sexual exploitation of women at the workplace and issued notice to the Centre and states seeking their response to why they had not appointed officers and set up local complaint committees in each district to deal with such cases. NGO Initiatives for Inclusion Foundation alleged in a PIL that most states and UTs have failed to implement the law in its true spirit.
The PIL, filed through the NGO’s managing trustee, Esha Shekhar, sought the SC’s direction for enforcement of various provisions of the law. Advocate Sanjay Parikh, appearing for the petitioner, told a bench comprising Chief Justice of India Dipak Misra and Justices A M Khanwilkar and D Y Chandrachud that protection provided to working women under the law was not reaching remote areas the way it should.
