The India Justice Report (IJR) ranks individual Indian states in relation to their capacity to deliver access to justice. The Tata Trusts brought together a group of sectoral experts — Centre for Social Justice, Common Cause, Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative, DAKSH, Tata Institute of Social Sciences - Prayas and Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy — to develop a report that would measure the structural capacity of state-based instrumentalities of the justice system against their own declared mandates with a view to pinpointing areas that lend themselves to immediate solutions. This is the third edition of the report which focuses on the comparisons and tracks the rise and fall in each state’s structural and financial capacity to deliver justice, using the latest available government figures. The ranking is based on quantitative measurements of budgets, human resources, infrastructure, workload, and diversity across police, judiciary, prisons and legal aid in 18 large and medium-sized states (population of over 1 crore) and seven small states. Data for eight unranked Union Territories (UTs) and three states is also provided. This third IJR also separately assesses the capacity of the 25 State Human Rights Commissions.
