In this paper an attempt has been made to analyze the existing provisions for the reparation of victims of human rights violations in the State of Jammu and Kashmir. The existing rehabilitation programs for the people affected by conflict are mostly in the form of compensation, exgratia relief and in special cases providing job. No concrete efforts have been taken by the Government towards psychological rehabilitation. Monetary compensation is not adequate to strictly aim at repairing the damage. All injuries/damages cannot be economically assessed. Satisfaction as reparatory measure is least applied.
