The Indian Constitution, SPL class 8, cbse
WHY DOES A COUNTRY NEED A CONSTITUTION?
Most countries in the world have a
Constitution.
While all democratic countries are likely to have
a Constitution, it is not necessary that all
countries that have a Constitution are
democratic.
The Constitution serves several purposes. First,
it lays out certain ideals that form the basis of
the kind of country that we as citizens aspire to
live in.
It tells us what the fundamental nature of our
society is.
 Between December 1946 and
November 1949, the Constituent
Assembly drafted a constitution for
independent India.
300 members elected from all
regions in India.
3 years of deliberations.
Lengthiest constitution.
1. FEDERALISM: The existence of more than one level of
government. In India, we have governments at the state
level and at the centre.
Panchayati Raj is the third tier of government within the
states so that decisions could be made for that particular
area. While each state in India enjoys autonomy in
exercising powers on certain issues, subjects of national
concern require that all of these states follow the laws of
the central government.
2. PARLIAMENTARY FORM OF
GOVERNMENT: Constitution of India
guarantees universal adult suffrage for all
citizens.
This means that the people of India have a
direct role in electing their representatives.
Also, every citizen of the country,
irrespective of his/her social background,
can also contest in elections. These
representatives are accountable to the
people.
3. SEPARATION OF POWERS:
According to the constitution, there are three organs of
government: the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary.
 The legislature refers to our elected representatives.
The executive is a smaller group of people who are
responsible for implementing laws and running the
government.
The judiciary refers to the system of courts in this country.
In order to prevent the misuse of power by any one branch of
government, the Constitution says that each of these organs
should exercise different powers.
Through this, each organ acts as a check on the other organs
of government and this ensures the balance of power
between all three.
4.FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS:
• Colonial rule
• Fundamental Rights protect citizens against the
arbitrary and absolute exercise of power by the
State.
• The Constitution guarantees the rights of
individuals against the State as well as against
other individuals.
• It also guarantees the rights of minorities
against the majority.
• How many rights do we have?
• What are they?
The Indian Constitution, SPL class 8, cbse

country,
and the right to practise any profession, occupation or

employment of children under 14 years of age.
4. RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF RELIGION:
Religious freedom is provided to all citizens.
Every person has the right to practise, profess and
propagate the religion of their choice.
5. CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS:
The Constitution states that all minorities,
religious or linguistic, can set up their own
educational institutions in order to preserve and
develop their own culture.
6. RIGHT TO CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDIES: This
allows citizens to move the court if they
believe that any of their Fundamental Rights
have been violated by the State.

The Indian Constitution, SPL class 8, cbse

  • 2. WHY DOES A COUNTRY NEED A CONSTITUTION? Most countries in the world have a Constitution. While all democratic countries are likely to have a Constitution, it is not necessary that all countries that have a Constitution are democratic. The Constitution serves several purposes. First, it lays out certain ideals that form the basis of the kind of country that we as citizens aspire to live in. It tells us what the fundamental nature of our society is.
  • 3.  Between December 1946 and November 1949, the Constituent Assembly drafted a constitution for independent India. 300 members elected from all regions in India. 3 years of deliberations. Lengthiest constitution.
  • 4. 1. FEDERALISM: The existence of more than one level of government. In India, we have governments at the state level and at the centre. Panchayati Raj is the third tier of government within the states so that decisions could be made for that particular area. While each state in India enjoys autonomy in exercising powers on certain issues, subjects of national concern require that all of these states follow the laws of the central government.
  • 5. 2. PARLIAMENTARY FORM OF GOVERNMENT: Constitution of India guarantees universal adult suffrage for all citizens. This means that the people of India have a direct role in electing their representatives. Also, every citizen of the country, irrespective of his/her social background, can also contest in elections. These representatives are accountable to the people.
  • 6. 3. SEPARATION OF POWERS: According to the constitution, there are three organs of government: the Legislature, the Executive and the Judiciary.  The legislature refers to our elected representatives. The executive is a smaller group of people who are responsible for implementing laws and running the government. The judiciary refers to the system of courts in this country. In order to prevent the misuse of power by any one branch of government, the Constitution says that each of these organs should exercise different powers. Through this, each organ acts as a check on the other organs of government and this ensures the balance of power between all three.
  • 7. 4.FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS: • Colonial rule • Fundamental Rights protect citizens against the arbitrary and absolute exercise of power by the State. • The Constitution guarantees the rights of individuals against the State as well as against other individuals. • It also guarantees the rights of minorities against the majority. • How many rights do we have? • What are they?
  • 9. THE FUNDAMENTAL RIGHTS OF INDIAN CONSTITUTION: 1. RIGHT TO EQUALITY:  All persons are equal before the law.  Shall be equally protected by the laws.  No citizen can be discriminated against on the basis of their religion, caste or sex.  Every person has access to all public places including playgrounds, hotels, shops etc.  The State cannot discriminate against anyone in matters of employment.  The practice of untouchability has also been abolished.
  • 10.  2. RIGHT TO FREEDOM: This includes the right to freedom of speech and expression, the right to form associations, the right to move freely and reside in any part of the country, and the right to practise any profession, occupation or business. 3. RIGHT AGAINST EXPLOITATION: The Constitution prohibits human trafficking, forced labour, and employment of children under 14 years of age.
  • 11. 4. RIGHT TO FREEDOM OF RELIGION: Religious freedom is provided to all citizens. Every person has the right to practise, profess and propagate the religion of their choice. 5. CULTURAL AND EDUCATIONAL RIGHTS: The Constitution states that all minorities, religious or linguistic, can set up their own educational institutions in order to preserve and develop their own culture.
  • 12. 6. RIGHT TO CONSTITUTIONAL REMEDIES: This allows citizens to move the court if they believe that any of their Fundamental Rights have been violated by the State.
  • 13. KEY FEATURES OF INDIAN CONSTITUTION 5. SECULARISM: A secular state is one in which the state does not officially promote any one religion as the state religion. No favoritism, no partiality. Respect to all religions Citizens are free to choose their religion.
  • 14. 6. Fundamental duties: What are they? Which are they?
  • 15. GLOSSARY:-  ARBITRARY: When nothing is fixed and is instead left to one’s judgment or choice. This can be used to refer to rules that are not fixed, or decisions that have no basis etc.  IDEAL: A goal or a principle in its most excellent or perfect form.  Indian national movement: The Indian national movement emerged in nineteenth century India and saw thousands of men and women coming together to fight British rule.  POLITY: A society that has an organised political structure.
