Answer

Correct Option is Only 1

The National Human Rights Commission (NHRC) established in 1993, is an independent statutory body as per the provisions of the Protection of Human Rights Act of 1993 which was amended in 2006. It has no power to punish the violators of human rights, nor to award any relief including monetary relief to the victim. Its recommendations are not binding on the concerned government or authority. Hence statement 1 is incorrect. Functions 1. To inquire into any violation of human rights or negligence in the prevention of such violation by a public servant, either suo motu or on a petition presented to it or on an order of a court. 2. To review the factors including acts of terrorism that inhibit the enjoyment of human rights and recommend remedial measures. 3. To undertake and promote research in the field of human rights. 4. To spread human rights literacy among the people and promote awareness of the safeguards available for the protection of these rights. Hence only statements 2 and 3 are correct.
