KEY statutory commissions in Maharashtra, tasked with upholding the rights of children, women and clamping down on human rights violations are struggling to function in the face of funding issues and staff shortage. The Maharashtra State Human Rights Commission has as many as 23,000 cases pending and the Maharashtra State Commission for Protection of Child Rights has not had a chairman or members since 2011.
