Right to Property is a Constitutional Right: Upholds Supreme Court

A bench of justices G S Singhvi and A K Ganguly said in a judgement that courts should view with “suspicion” the action of the government in acquiring land for private parties in the name of urgency.

The Supreme Court today said the right to property is a constitutional right and government cannot deprive a person of his land in an arbitary manner.

“Court should not adopt a pedantic approach, as has been done in the present case, and decide the matter keeping in view the constitutional goals of social and economic justice and the fact that even though the right to property is no longer a fundamental right, the same continues to be an important constitutional right and in terms of Article 300-A, no person can be deprived of his property except by authority of law,” Justice Singhvi, writing the judgement, said.
