The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) was elevated to a Constitutional body by the 2007 Interim Constitution and the 2012 NHRC Act. Both are however silent on its independence and autonomy. Due to the lack of personnel management legislation, most NHRC employees are compelled to work on a temporary basis. Following the Supreme Court’s (SC) verdict in favor of the autonomy and independence, the Government had accepted to enact new legislation to resolve the problem. NHRC-NWC-NDC recommended that the National Dalit Commission (NDC) and the National Women Commission (NWC) be established as independent and autonomous bodies through the new Constitution.
