Question of The Day29-03-2023

Who was the Prime Minister of India when the Right to Property was removed from the Fundamental rights?


Correct Answer : b ) Morarji Desai

Explanation :

Through the 44th Constitutional Amendment Act in 1978, the right to property was deleted from the list of Fundamental rights. A new article 300-A was inserted to make it a constitutional right. 

Initially, right to property was recognised as a fundamental right under the Indian Constitution that came into force in 1950. Article 31 and Article 19 (1) (f) ensured that any person's right against his property remains protected. Morarji Desai government eventually removed the right to property from the list of fundamental rights by the introduction of 44th Amendment Act in 1977. 

As a result, the people are now not allowed to approach Supreme Court under Article 32 for violation of their right to property. However, they can invoke jurisdiction at high court under Article 226 of the Indian Constitution.

Hence, (b) is the correct answer.
