Constitution is a living document, an instrument which makes the government system work. Its flexibility lies in its amendments. In this project, the text of the Constitution of India has been brought up-to-date by incorporating therein all amendments made by Parliament up to and including the Constitution (Ninety-Fourth Amendment) Act 2006. The Constitution applies to the State of Jammu and Kashmir with certain exceptions and modifications as provided in Article 370 and the Constitution (Application to Jammu and Kashmir) Order, 1954. The text of the Constitutional Amendments relating to the Constitution (Forty-fourth Amendment) Act, 1978, the Constitution (Eighty-Sixth Amendment) Act2002, and the Constitution (Eighty-sixth Amendment) Act 2003, which have not yet come into force, have been provided in the text at the appropriate places. The project also discusses the important cases like Kesavananda Bharti Case, Woman Rao Case, Golaknath Case etc and hence it gives us the full information about the constitutional amendments and its limitations in India and how the Constitution of the India works following the general principle of the Constitutionalism in the Constitution of India
