The differences between Fundamental Rights and Directive Principles are:
- Fundamental Rights are justiciable
Indian Constitution mentions some of the most important rights of the citizens called fundamental rights.
- These rights are necessary if citizens are to act properly and live democratically.
- These rights are fundamental in legal sense. If Government passes any law which restricts them, then those laws would be invalid.
- The Constitution guarantees us six fundamental rights.
- Fundamental rights concern the individual.
- Directive Principles of State policy are not justiciable. The provision of Directive Principles thus can not be enforced in court of law.
- These are actually directions given by the Constitution of the State to adopt policies which would help to establish a just society in our country.
- The aim of these instructions is to create proper economic and social conditions in which citizens of our country can lead a good life.
- Directive principles concern State.
