Out of 14,167 complaints received till date, the BHRC has disposed of 6513 cases as of now, he said at a function to mark the foundation day of BHRC.
In 2012, the BHRC received 3810 complaints and disposed of 984 of these cases, Jha said.
Outlining the nature of human rights violation, he said that 28.39 percent cases were related to the police department followed by the service sector at 19.15 percent.
The atrocities perpetrated by the mafias accounted for 7.78 percent complaints, while 5.65 percent cases were related to women, the BHRC Chairman said.
With redressal of justice becoming costly, time consuming and complex affair in the courts, he said that a large number of people have started knocking the BHRC's door to seek speedy disposal of complaints.
The BHRC's importance has grown as it works on a mechanism to expeditiously dispose of complaints by hearing various parties to a dispute at a couple of sittings, Justice Jha said.
He said BHRC was also playing a key role in strengthening democratic fabric of the country by bringing to book those guilty of human rights violation of the people.
