National Human Rights Institutions (India)

Several national and state human rights institutions have been created with the aim of protecting human rights and investigating human rights violations.

Affected persons are urged to identify the relevant national and/or state human rights institutions and contact them with detailed information on the eviction threat or the forced eviction, and the violations of human rights of different sections of the population. Where state institutions do not exist or are not function inadequately, the national human rights institutions could be approached.
