Is paid leave a solution for women who have filed sexual harassment complaints at work?

Is paid leave a solution for women who have filed sexual harassment complaints at work?

The Centre recently said that women who are employed with the central government and have filed complaints of sexual harassment at the workplace can get paid leave of up to 90 days while the inquiry is pending. Although this provision exists under the Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace (Prevention, Prohibition, and Redressal) Act 2013, the Department of Personnel and Training (DoPT) has only just incorporated it in the Central Civil Services (leave) Rules, 1972. The move, an anonymous DoPT official told PTI, was to prevent further trauma to the victim by forcing her to work in the same organisation alongside the person she had complained about. #InMyOpinion #Caravan #Department of Personnel and Training #RK pachauri #TERI #Sexual Harassment of Women at the Workplace #Nikita Saxena #Central Civil Services

Digital journalism: How the internet will save the Indian press

The Indian media are at a tipping point, hobbled by suspect financing, a history of servility, and a massive loss of public trust. The internet is no silver bullet, but it most certainly represents a lifeline. #ThisisNext #MediaCrit #Indian media #Newspapers #Caravan #Digital Journalism #Vinod Jose #Digital News
Why was the Gwalior court in such a hurry to block IIPM URLs?

Why was the Gwalior court in such a hurry to block IIPM URLs?

The problem in this case however, is not the ruling itself. It is the way that the ruling has been given that is setting the wrong precedent. #HowThisWorks #Arindam Chaudhuri #IIPM #Caravan #Mint #Gwalior court #Kafila

High class hookers are cool!

Media stories tend to peddle upmarket prostitution as a genteel profession. Trade your wares on the street, you're a sad, pathetic whore. Do it in a 5-star hotel, you're a glamour girl. #MediaCrit #Delhi #Prostitution #Caravan #Sex trade
