The Universal Periodic Review (UPR) is a process of the Human Rights Council which involves a review of the human rights records of all 192 UN Member States once every four years. The reviews are conducted by the UPR Working Group which consists of the 47 members of the Council. For this process, one of the documents submitted is the national report prepared by the Government of the reviewed state. In this context, the draft Universal Periodic Report-II was prepared by the Government of India through an inter-Ministerial process.

This submission to the UNES Division of the Ministry of External Affairs (government of India) consists of comments to the draft UPR-II received from over 16 civil society and human rights defender organisations from Manipur compiled through a rigorous consultation held on 19th January 2012. The draft UPR-II Report of India reveals the insincere fulfilment of mandatory obligations of an ambitious State uncomfortably placed in an international community bespoken and pledged to uphold and respect human rights, not just in intent but also in action. The draft is devoid of any descriptive analysis of the reality of human rights in India in the intervening four years between UPR-I and UPR-II.
