Fundamental Duties

Chapter -7

Part –IVA consists of Article 51A on FUNDAMENTAL DUTIES

The original constitution did not contain the Fundamental Duties. These were added by the 42nd Constitutional Amendment Act of 1976 on the recommendation of the Swaran Singh Committee. Like the Directive Principles, these are non-justiciable, there is no legal sanction against their violation.
