About India Justice Report

  • The India Justice Report (IJR) was initiated by Tata Trusts in 2019, and this is the third edition.
  • The Centre for Social Justice, Common Cause, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, DAKSH, TISS-Prayas, Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, and How India Lives are the foundation’s partners.
  • The IJR 2022 is based on 24-month quantitative research and tracks the performance of states in capacitating their justice delivery structures to effectively deliver mandated services.
  • The report brings together data from authoritative government sources on the four pillars of justice delivery, which is otherwise siloed.
  • The report also assesses the capacity of the 25 State Human Rights Commissions in the country separately.
  • Each pillar of justice delivery is analyzed through budgets, human resources, workload, diversity, infrastructure, and trends against the state’s declared standards and benchmarks.
