Sexual Harassment and Air Force Act, 1950


  • Sqn Ldr B.G. Prakash



The recent case of Anjalli Gupta throws lateral light on the several anomalies in the Air Force Act which needs to be amended in the light of the requirements of the Supreme Court ruling on sexual harassment. Until that happens, an interim arrangement becomes necessary. With 500 women officers and only a single woman Air Marshal as the Director General Medical Services (Air) available, a Special Committee to address and handle allegation of `sexual harassment' with investigative, advisory provisions and with power of punishment, as appropriate, is the immediate need.
