CFP: FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS AND DUTIES: ISSUES AND PERSPECTIVES IN THE 21st CENTURY [ LAST DATE OF PAPER SUBMISSION :10 JANUARY 2022]

A Constitution is an organic Instrument. It is a fundamental law of the Nation. Part III of the Indian Constitution, Articles 14 to 35 deal with the fundamental rights. In India, both rights and duties have been imposed upon the State by the Constitution in the form of Fundamental Rights. Fundamental Rights are basic inherent human rights. Fundamental Rights are guaranteed rights because they are given by the Constitution and guarantee is given by the Constitution. Fundamental Rights are protected rights. No person, Union or State can violate them. Fundamental Rights are enforceable rights because the Supreme Court is the protector, guardian and sentinel of fundamental rights under Article 32. Although they are not absolute in nature and reasonable restrictions can be imposed on them.

Concept of Fundamental Duties for the citizens has been introduced by the 42nd amendment. Although these fundamental duties are not enforceable, but there exist a wide range of duties that bind us in everyday life. These duties are owed both to the state and to individuals. There is a legal duty to pay taxes, to refrain from committing violence against fellow-citizens, and to follow other laws that Parliament has enacted. Breach of these legal duties triggers financial consequences (fines), or punitive measures like imprisonment. Duties follow a simple logic that peaceful co-existence requires a degree of self-sacrifice, and that if necessary, this must be enforced through the set of sanctions.
