Constitutional amendment struck down by superme court : 7 partially and 1 wholly so far

The supreme Court on 20th july 2021,in union of india vs. Rajendra N. Shah, struck down most part of the 97th constitutional amendment. The court unanimously held that the 97 th constitutional amendment required ratification by at – least one – half of the state legislature as per article 368(2) of the Constitution since it dealt with a entry which was an exclusive state subject (co_operative societies) . Since such ratification was not done in the case of the 97 amendment  , part IXB of the Constitution inserted by the said amendment was struck down. The majority judgment invoked doctrine of Severability to make part IXB operative only insofar as it concerns multi_ state cooperative societies both within the various states in the Union of India.
