Ministry of Human Rights has released a special video to create awareness for registration of complaints of any human right violations across the country.

The 1099 Helpline has been revamped and upgraded to an MIS-Database for more effective response.

Now it provides a discrete SMS and video service for victims of human right violations.

MoHR helpline was upgraded to include WhatsApp helpline in seven regional languages, keeping in mind the needs of women and children during the COVID-19 lockdown.

A national helpline application has also been launched on Google Playstore to streamline and strengthen grievance redressal mechanisms and enable vulnerable social groups to use alternate mechanisms of registering, reporting and tracking human rights violations.
