6. To provide assistance if an employee or a student chooses to file a complaint with the police
7. To provide mechanisms of dispute redressal and dialogue through just and fair conciliation without undermining complainant's rights
8. To minimize the need for purely punitive approaches
9. To enable a complainant to make a formal complaint where the complainant so wishes, and to act in accordance with the Act of 2013 and the UGC guidelines of 2015 to ensure that complaint and inquiry are carried out fairly and within the time set out by law.
10. To protect the safety of complainant and any witnesses by not divulging identities
11. To ensure that victims or witnesses are not threatened or penalised for making complaints
12. To ensure that the provisions of the Act are not misused by frivolous complaints
