HRLN Himachal Pradesh Unit has two offices. The first was started at Shimla in 2004 and a year later another one began working from Dharamshala. The focus is to build close links between legal networks and human rights law groups, campaign for wide-ranging reforms of the legal system, bring human rights law education into the mainstream and introduce a broader ideological mooring for social change in which legal campaigns and social movements collaborate.

The branches of the state unit work in coordination with nationwide HRLN Initiatives and are particularly active in legal advocacy on issues related to right to food, disability rights and environmental justice. The HP Unit is also involved in the Himalaya Niti (policy) campaign, which advocates for works for sustainable development in the hill areas. The campaign has been advocating for separate planning and policy for mountain areas in view

of the distinct geographical and ecological conditions of the Himalayan states. Our offices provide legal aid to the marginalised communities at all levels in the state high court.

Credit goes to HRLN HP for several landmark cases. A noteworthy example is the order of interim stay in SLP before the Supreme Court challenging the order of the high court in which the high court had directed demolition of all the houses and hutments in areas identified as ‘forests’. The Supreme Court observed that the demolition work should commence only after the winter season. This was a representative petition, which affected some five thousand people in Shimla. The grant of temporary order of stay by the apex court saved the affected people from the bitter cold and gave them the much-needed time to make alternative arrangements.
