A lot needs to be done by the central and state actors for realising the dream of independent and impartial human rights panels across the country, National Human Rights Commission member Cyriac Joseph said Saturday.

Addressing a function here to mark the 21st foundation day of the NHRC, he said there was no doubt that the institution had played an immense role in recommending punitive action against the guilty, but a lot more was still to be done towards the impartial and independent role it has been playing.

“Despite the NHRC’s establishment in the year 1993, till now only 23 states have set up the state human rights commission,” added Joseph.


It is a matter of great concern that some of the states even in this era don’t realise the necessity to sNHRCet up the institution.
