Fundamental duties not merely pedantic or technical: CJI

New Delhi: Chief Justice of India NV Ramana said on Monday that the fundamental duties are not merely pedantic or technical, instead they were incorporated as the key to social transformation, as the framers of the Constitution imagined a nation where citizens are aware, alert and able to make the right decisions. The Chief Justice made the remark at the 76th anniversary of India’s Independence. The Supreme Court Bar Association (SCBA) organised the function.

The Chief Justice said, “Our Constitution is the fundamental document which regulates the relationship between the citizens and the government. While it has granted us inalienable rights, it places upon us certain fundamental duties. The fundal duties are not merely pedantic or technical. They were incorporated as the key to social transformation.”
