Is our Constitution a partly copied one ?
I came across a comment that parts of our Constitution are copied verbatim from various sources. I am of the opinion that Drafting Committee of the Constitution studied the Constitutions of various countries as those countries had done a lot of spade work and framed their Constitution. The Drafting Committee took good points from the other countries and incorporated them in our Constitution. This saved a lot of time for them. The Drafting Committee consisted of very eminent lawyers and knowledgeable persons. Is there anything wrong in accepting good clauses as they are already tested? Can we accuse the Drafting Committee guilty and deliberately copied in parts word to word from other Constitutions of the world?
