Chairman of the Karnataka State Human Rights Commission (SHRC) S.R. Nayak said on Friday that the commission did not have facilities which would have facilitated its smooth functioning.
Mr. Nayak told presspersons here that the State Government had provided only 4,500 sq. ft. of area to the KSHRC office in Bangalore. The Government had promised to provide 4,634 sq. ft. of space on June 16. “But it is yet to come to us,” he said.
As many as 491 personnel were required for the KSHRC. Of the 105 sanctioned posts, the KSHRC had filled only 76 posts because there was no more space to accommodate extra personnel.
Of these 76, 51 had been appointed on contract basis while 21 were on deputation.
The KSHRC required a library, training centre and a conference hall.
