Fundamental Rights are defined as the basic human freedoms that every Indian citizen has the right to enjoy for individual, just and equitable development.
Fundamental rights are called those rights which, being fundamental to the life of the individual, are provided to the citizens by the constitution and which cannot be interfered with by the state. These are the rights which are necessary for the full development of the personality of the individual. and without which man cannot make his full development. This right is fundamental for many reasons.
Ordinary legal rights are enforced and protected by the state whereas fundamental rights are enforced by the constitution of the country and protected by the constitution itself. Changes can be made in the ordinary legal rights by the Legislature, but in order to make changes in the fundamental rights, changes in the constitution are necessary.

In these rights, Articles 12, 13, 33, 34 and 35 (a) relate to rights in general. Before the passing of the 44th amendment, the fundamental rights given in the constitution were divided into seven categories, but according to this amendment, the right to property was made a general legal right.
