Abstract

India has seen large influx of refugee population throughout history but does not have specific domestic law governing the treatment of refugees and asylum-seekers. Despite being a non-signatory to refugee convention, India has an obligation under international law to protect asylum-seekers which it has traditionally honored. Though India does not have a national framework in refugee law, yet in 2006 the Supreme Court ruled that the right to life and personal liberty as enshrined in Indian constitution protects refugees from forced repatriation. So the present article aims to inform the world India's endeavor to foster respect and improve their situation in India with a mission to assist asylum seekers in basic human rights and accessing justice system. Key words: Protection, Refugee, Humanitarian Crisis, Saranarthi, Genocide, Asylum, Chakmas, Repatriation
