HRF/190/08 Embargoed for 2
December 2008

Dear Madam/Sir,

Please find enclosed HRF-190 titled "Time for Change: The Legal Framework for the Rights of Refugees in India".

The rights deficit that refugees in India experience is directly related to the Indian government's unwillingness to construct a national refugee legal framework, in line with international standards. In order to address this deficit and comply with its international human rights obligations the Government of India must urgently enact national refugee legislation and construct a national status determination agency.
