The National Human Rights Commission was established on 12 October 1993 for the protection of promotion of Human Rights in India. It is a statutory body under the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993 (PHRA). It has the responsibility to spread awareness, undertake and promote researchrelated to human rights in India. Moreover, it is also provided with investigative functions and it can inquire into an issue on its own initiative or on a petition presented to it by a victim or any person on his behalf.
A complaint can be filed before the commission by a victim or a person on his behalf in cases where there is:
- Violation of Human Rights or abetment or
- Negligence in the prevention of such violation by a public servant.
Moreover, it can also visit any jail or any other Institution under the control of the State Government with prior intimation to the Government of the respective state and make recommendations for the same.
The commission is given the powers of a Civil Court to try a suit under the Code of Civil Procedure when inquiring into complaints under the Act. The decision of the commission after the conduction of the inquiry is to be enforced by the respective Governments within a period of one months, failing which they have to provide a reason to the commission for non-enforcement of the same. If the decision is not implemented, the petitioner can move to the Courts.

From Our Clients
I am trying my best to put gratitude in words for Mr. Jaspreet Benipal. They way he helped me / guided me for my case in India (having some foreign court connection) is really commendable. He has not only saved my time but money too. My lawyer had been misguiding me since last 2 years but when I consulted NRI Legal Consultants, Mr. Benipal advised me the best way which worked in court. Thank you Jaspreet Benipal ji and team NRI Legal Consultants for all the help. I would recommend people to use your expertise in their legal matters. Sometimes, only a second opinion matters.
If you are an NRI, I highly recommend calling Jaspreet to discuss your legal matters. He is direct and clear in his communication unlike the many other lawyers I talked to India. I felt Japreet was genuine in has advice and very knowledge about the judicial system in India. I suggest don’t waste your time with the other Lawyers that over-promise and under-deliver just to collect fees in India, give NRI Legal Consultants a try.
Excellent service! The team is really knowledgeable, courteous and efficient. Also, they’re helping who cannot afford a lawyer, which is in contrast to other law firms in India as they are genuinely trying to provide legal assistance to everyone. So, don’t hesitate to contact them for any kind of legal assistance. Thank you!
