Department of Defence
Subject: Prompt action on complaints / notices/ summons from NHRC -reg.
It has come to notice that various complaints / notices/ summons issued by National Human Rights Commission in the name of Defence Secretary are not being routed to concerned Wings/Divisions earnestly. Consequently Department’s stands remain unrepresented before NHRC which leads to adverse action/stricture from Commission.
2. Office of Defence Secretary has viewed it seriously and has directed that complaints / notices/ summons issued by NHRC must be taken up on priority to ensure that same are transferred to concerned Wings/Division etc. immediately for a prompt action thereon.
