Article 15(1): The state shall not discriminate against any citizen on the basis of religion, race, caste, sex, and place of birth.
Article 21A: Free and Compulsory Education for all children in the age group of 6-14 years
Article 19(1): Freedom of speech and expression, to assemble peacefully and without arms, to form associations, to move freely, reside and settle in any part of the Indian territory and to practice the profession or carry on any trade or business of one’s choice.
Article 39(d): Under Part IV – Directive Principles of State Policy of the Indian Constitution, the article states that there shall be equal pay for equal work for both men and women.
Directive Principles of State Policy are non-enforceable unlike the Fundamental Rights which are enforceable by law and one can approach Supreme Court (under Article 32) and High court(under article 226) against the violation of these rights.
Hence, D is the correct answer.
