NEW DELHI: The All India Football Federation has officially approved the AIFF Prevention of Sexual Harassment (PoSH) Policy, to be implemented with immediate effect. The significant decision was arrived at by the AIFF Executive Committee, following thorough deliberations and careful consideration.

The AIFF PoSH Policy, based on the PoSH Act 2013, aims to ensure a safe and inclusive environment within the football community. It has been meticulously crafted and vetted by the AIFF legal team to adhere to the highest standards of compliance and efficacy.

AIFF Acting Secretary General Mr. M Satyanarayan said, “The need for a PoSH policy exclusively for the AIFF staff was much needed. We have drafted this by taking policies as per the PoSH Act of 2013 and the policies in a few other organisations as well and incorporated them into our policy.

“Our PoSH policy has been designed in a way that it can be altered and adapted as we go forward. Along with this, we have also planned to have an expert on the PoSH policy to address our staff at least three times a year to keep reminding them of it,” he said.

“It is essential, especially for our junior and women’s teams. We feel it is necessary for all stakeholders in various positions to be fully aware of the PoSH policy,” he said.

AIFF remains dedicated to upholding the principles of fairness, integrity, and equality.
