Fundamental Rights in the Constitution of India

CHAPTER OBJECTIVES

Fundamental rights were envisaged by the Constituent Assembly to include civil, legal, political, and social rights of individuals and groups. They are fundamental because they are necessary for the enjoyment of life, freedom, equality, self-respect, and dignity as human beings. These rights are also fundamental in protecting the inherent dignity of human beings and helping them to fully realize their capacities; protecting cultural, religious, and linguistic freedom of groups; setting up a free, equal and just society; and setting up a democratic government. This chapter examines the provisions made for fundamental rights in the Constitution of India.
