Human rights are the rights which are guaranteed to each individual from the time of their birth and something which they inherit by the virtue of being a human and cannot be taken away from them. However, these rights have been violated by numerous agencies time and again. The refugee crisis also poses as a huge violator of human rights. The source of the crisis itself is when the government of the country does not fulfil its duty of protecting the rights of its citizens and it self violates their rights. The rights of refugees are subsequently violated by the international community where they try to seek refuge. This paper aims to study the various sources that generate refugees that try to seek asylum in India and their treatment in India and also discuss the international standard for the same as prescribed by the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees.
