    The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) of India, established on October 12, 1993, is a pivotal institution dedicated to the protection and promotion of human rights in the country. It derives its authority from the Protection of Human Rights Act (PHRA), 1993, which was subsequently amended by the Protection of Human Rights (Amendment) Act, 2006, and the Protection of Human Rights (Amendment) Act, 2019. This statutory framework empowers the NHRC to enforce human rights within the nation. The NHRC's formation is based on the Paris Principles of Human Rights, adopted in 1991 to advance and preserve human rights. These principles received endorsement from the United Nations through its Resolution 48/134 during the General Assembly in 1993, laying the foundation for the establishment of the National Human Rights Commission (NHRC).
