Solution

In 1993, the Protection of Human Rights Act was enacted. The Indian Constitution has recognized human rights as fundamental rights. Human rights are fundamental rights that every human being is entitled to have. The Act led to the establishment of the National Human Rights Commission and the State Human Rights Commission. The Human Rights Commission takes note of the complaints regarding the violation of human rights and also takes appropriate measures regarding such violations.

"human rights" means the rights relating to life, liberty, equality, and dignity of the individual guaranteed under the Constitution or embodied in the International Covenants and enforceable by courts in India.
