Abstract

Since the 17th Century, human thinking has been veering round to the theory that man has certain essential, basic, natural and inalienable rights or freedoms and it is the function of the state to recognize these rights and freedoms and allow them free play, in order that human liberty may be preserved, human personality be developed and an effective social and democratic life be promoted. Through this paper an attempt has been made to make a comparative study of the concept of fundamental rights in US, UK and India.
