seminar on Constitution and Human right on 26 th Nov. 2015

NICFS celebrated “The Constitution Day” on 26th November, 2015. On this day the Director, faculty members, staff and students were assembled in Auditorium to celebrate the day. Sh. Sandeep Mittal, IPS, DIG (Admin) delivered lecture during the seminar on Constitution and Human right:

The Constitution of India, largest Constitution in the world and hand written in English and Hindi calligraphy was adopted by Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950. The date 26 January was chosen to commemorate the Purna Swaraj declaration of independence of 1930.

It is the supreme law of India which lays down the framework defining fundamental political principles, establishes the structure, procedures, powers and duties of government institutions and sets out fundamental rights, directive principles and the duties of citizens.

The constitution of India imparts constitutional supremacy as it is not created by the Parliament but created by a constituent assembly and adopted by its people with a declaration in the preamble to the constitution. The constitution can not be overridden by Parliament. The Constitution declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular, democratic republic, assuring its citizens of justice, equality, and liberty, and endeavors to promote fraternity among them.

The constitution of India is not a black letter law. On the contrary, the Constitution of India is considered as a living document mainly because of Article 368 of the Constitution of India i.e. provision of amendment to the Constitution which is demonstrated by 100 amendments as on 1st August, 2015.

Today we are celebrating the Constitution Day and I call upon all participants to discuss various issues in this Seminar on “Constitution & Human Rights”.
