The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) held a meeting with all State Human Rights Commissions here.

Dattu said in order to expand its outreach, the Commission had integrated its online complaint filing system with common service portal of the centre and has also been encouraging the State Human Rights Commissions (SHRC) to join the HRCNET portal.

“Most of the state commissions have joined this portal. I take this opportunity to urge state commissions which are yet to join the portal to do the same at the earliest to avoid duplication of complaint registration on the same issue,” he said.

According to another NHRC official, 22 states have so far joined the portal.
