Abstract

India was a signatory to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. The Indian constitution was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on Dec 26, 1949, which came into force on Jan 26, 1950. Our Indian constitution was greatly influenced by the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, 1948. Provisions of Part III which stands for Fundamental Rights and Part IV for Directive Principles of State Policy bear a close resemblance to the Universal Declaration of Human Rights. As a result, a number of fundamental rights guaranteed in Part III of the Indian Constitution are similar to the provisions of the Declaration.

Keywords: human rights, UDHR, art 14
