Fundamental Duties

  • Incorporated in Part IV-A, article 51-A of the constitution of India.
  • Inserted by the Constitution 42nd Amendment Act, 1976.
  • It was part of a large number of changes brought about during the internal emergency (1975 - 77).
  • But after the end of the Emergency, when the new Parliament reviewed the whole position & in most cases restored the pre-emergency position, article 51-A was one emerged unscathed because it was considered by all parties to be an unexceptionable charter of principles which citizens could usefully absorb & practice.
  • The inclusion of Fundamental Duties in our Constitution also brings it in line with Article 29 (1) of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights which says: "Everyone has the duties to the community in which alone the free & full development of the personality is possible."
