What is India's constitution?

India's most important law is the Constitution. The framework that defines the fundamental political code, structure, procedures, powers, and responsibilities of government institutions are laid out in this document. After the Alabama Constitution, it has 145,000 words, making it the longest constitution ever written. It had 395 articles, 22 parts, and 8 schedules when it was enacted. It has 25 parts, 470 articles, and a preamble. Since its inception, it has been modified 104 times, the most recent of which took effect on January 25, 2020. It also establishes the fundamental rights, directive principles, and responsibilities of citizens. The right to equality, the right to freedom, the right against exploitation, the right to freedom of religion, the right to culture and education, and the right to constitutional remedies are the six fundamental rights recognized by the Indian constitution. In 2002, the fundamental duties were increased from six to eleven. The six responsibilities outlined in the original constitution are as follows: to follow the Constitution, respect its principles and institutions, and sing the National Anthem and Flag. to adore and uphold the noble ideals that gave our national struggle for freedom its impetus. to uphold and safeguard India's sovereignty, unity, and integrity. to defend the nation and serve in the military when called upon. to end practices that denigrate women's dignity and to foster a spirit of brotherhood among all Indians, regardless of their religious, linguistic, or regional or sectional differences. to appreciate and safeguard our diverse cultural heritage. Parliament cannot override the constitutional supremacy granted by the constitution. India's constitution establishes the nation as a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic and guarantees its citizens' equality, freedom, and fraternity.
