Question

The National Human Rights Commission is a body established to work for the promotion and protection of human rights. It is a recommendatory body, having powers of a civil court to call for any documents and summon any public authority in case of human rights violation. It is not, however, a part of the Indian Judiciary. 

In this context, which of the following terms would be applicable to the Commission?
  1. Federal
  2. Semi-autonomous
  3. Quasi-judicial
  4. Judicial


Solution

The correct option is C Quasi-judicial
The NHRC is a quasi-judicial body. This means it is partly judicial in character, as in it has powers that resemble those of a court of law. It is not, however, a court as recognised by the judiciary.

Similarly, the Election Commission is a body which has quasi-judicial powers when it comes to dispute resolution and keeping a check on electoral malpractices.
