Is there a time limit for filing a complaint of sexual harassment?

A complaint of sexual harassment needs to be filed within 3 months of the date of incident and in case of a series of incidents, within a period of 3 months from the date of the last incident. However, the ICC or the LCC , as the case may be, may extend the time limit, however, not exceeding 3 months, for reasons to be recorded in writing if it is satisfied that the circumstances were such that the victim was unable to file a complaint within the said period.
