As we know that in our constitution of India there are fundamental rights and duties of citizens of India…
But we have also seen that so many people talk about only fundamental rights….hardly some people talk about fundamental duties…..why??

Why we always thought that …what the government has done for us?….. Why we don’t think about that… what we are doing for our nation??

If we are aware about our rights , Then we should also get aware about our duties..

So , the fundamental duties are listed below :


It shall be the duty of every citizen of India –

(a) To abide by the Constitution and respect its ideals and institutions, the National Flag and the National Anthem.

(b) To cherish and follow the noble ideals which inspired our national struggle for freedom.

(c) To uphold and protect the sovereignty, unity and integrity of India.

(d) To defend the country and render national service when called upon to do so.

(e) To promote harmony and the spirit of common brotherhood amongst all the people of India transcending religious, linguistic and regional or sectional diversities. To renounce practices derogatory to the dignity of women.

(f) To value and preserve the rich heritage of our composite culture.

(g) To protect and improve the natural environment including forests, lakes, rivers and wild life, and to have compassion for living creatures.

(h) To develop the scientific temper, humanism and the spirit of inquiry and reform.

(i) To safeguard public property and to abjure violence.

(j) To strive towards excellence in all spheres of individual and collective activity so that the nation constantly rises to higher levels of endeavor and achievement.

(k) To provide opportunities for education by the parent the guardian, to his child, or a ward between the age of 6-14 years as the case may be.

So, if we know our rights then we should also know our duties… we should know that what are our responsibility being an responsible citizen of India .
We can see in our surroundings that in today’s time we need these duties… we need human responsibilities… to make a better society…. to make a better nation….. to make a better reputation of our nation in the whole world… so that we can proudly say
