Rules & Regulation

 Responsibilities & Duties of IHRPC :
1) International human rights law International human rights law is the body of international law that seeks the protection of rights that are inherent to the human person. Human rights are the basic rights and freedoms that human beings are entitled to. International human rights law seeks to guarantee human rights to all human beings without discrimination. Under international human rights law, states are
not only to refrain from interfering with the exercise and enjoyment of human rights, so-called negative obligations, but also to take steps to promote, protect and fulfil their enjoyment, so-called positive obligations. Positive obligations
require States to take steps to ensure that non-state actors do not impede the enjoyment of human rights. While international humanitarian law applies to both state and non-state actors, it remains contested whether and under what circumstances, non-state actors have human rights obligations. Human rights law applies at all times, including during times of armed conflict. States may
derogate from their human rights treaty obligations during a state of emergency, including during times of armed conflict.

International human rights treaties usually provide for a monitoring system to scrutinise compliance and assist states parties in the implementation of their obligations. To a varying degree, treaties create procedures where individuals can bring complaints against states for alleged human rights violations. Victims of human rights violations during times of armed conflict may use these
procedures to the extent that they are available. International humanitarian law does not have a similar complaints mechanism.

2) India Code: Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993. Long Title: An Act to provide for the constitution of a National Human Rights Commission, State Human Rights Commissions in States and Human Rights Courts for better protection of human rights and for matters connected therewith or incidental thereto.
