“Article 249 of the Constitution of Nepal sets the function, duties, and powers of the NHRCN. Articles 4 to 9 of the NHRC Act further explain the function, duties, and powers of NHRCN, including drawing attention to human rights issues, providing opinion or consultation, making names public, and keeping their record, constituting a committee or task force, and provision regarding interim relief and rescue. 

The NHRCN reports that it makes various recommendations to the national authorities. Further, it follows up on recommendations by sending letters to the government and conducting dialogue programs to discuss implementation. 

The SCA recommends the NHRCN to continue engaging Government to respond to its advice and requests and to indicate, within a reasonable time, how they have complied with their recommendations. 

The SCA encourages the NHRCN to conduct follow-up activities to monitor the extent to which its recommendations have been implemented. 

The SCA refers to Paris Principles A.1, A.2, A.3 and to its General Observation 1.6 ‘Recommendation by NHRIs’.”
