The Fundamental duties of the citizens is a part of Indian Constitution. The Swaran Singh Committee recommended that certain Fundamental Duties and obligations which every citizen owed the nation should be included in the Constitution.
The recommendation were implemented by 42nd amendment of the constitution in the year 1976. It inserted the article 51-A in IV-A part, which contains the list of duties.
The original constitution enforced on 26 January, 1950 did not contain anything about the fundamental duties.
Fundamental duties are non-justifiable. This means these duties are not enforceable by court in case of non-fulfillment by citizens except by a law enacted by legislatures.
