Dear Jagadeesh R
Answer to your queries are as follows
1. Nomination of one outside member on ICC (NGO/Advocate ) is mandatory
2.Formation of ICC is to be registered with local government Governing body which in your case will be Shops and establishment department of Local Ward office of Bangalore Municipality with copy to Labour commission , as such annual report is to be submitted to registration body
3 No date is specified , for uniformity it is prudent to use financial year ( you can incorporate information if you so desire in company's annual report
4.There is no format
Besides above please note that Training /workshop for employees as also of ICC on prevention of sexual harassment is mandatory as per the act and also in spirit as otherwise ICC remains only on paper with no benefit to either employee or employers

Dear Mr. Jagadeesh R Bangalore In Bangalore, the Govt. is yet to notify who is the local authority. As of now, you need to form ICC as per the Act and hold meeting as per ICC. Regards.

Dear Mr. Chandra Shekhar,
Thanks for your reply.
So should i have to wait till further notification by Govt in this regard?
In fact, we have a internal committee functioning from last 5 yrs ( 1 chair person and 4 members) and even every year i'm been submitting correspondence to respective ALC in Bangalore. but only thing is we have to add 1 external member and conduct works shops & submit annual returns.
Thanks and regards

Hello, there is no registration for ICC to any registration body. So don't get confused.
However you have to submit all the information through your annual report to the district collectors office every year in January.
The report period will be from January to December of the previous year.
There is no specific format for the annual report, however you can induce the following information:
1.Name of your organization
3.Registration number
4.Names of all the IC members
5.No. Of awareness sessions conducted in a year
6. No. of employees trained in a year
7. No. of cases handled in a year.
8. Whether you have a POSH policy or not
This is all you need to submit.
