India is in a phase of rapid economic development. But the disconnect between business actions and the rights of citizens in India is clear, with many exploited workers lacking appropriate access to remedy.

An estimated 11.7 million (2013) people in bonded labour.

Communities displaced by, and livelihoods lost to intense resource extraction.

Child labour rife within many sectors.

Critically poor health and safety practices, endemic low wages and excessive working hours.

Yet the Indian constitution robustly supports human rights. India has recently legislated several rights-based laws with far reaching impact, including the Right to Information and Right to Education Acts as well as National Voluntary Guidelines released by the Ministry of Corporate Affairs (2011).

Nevertheless, there exists a void where businesses – big and small – fail to understand their responsibilities to respect human rights, be due diligent in their operations or take necessary action.
