Currently, there have been 104 amendments to the Constitution of India ever since it came into force in 1950. Like any other written constitution, the Indian constitution also provides an amending procedure in order to adjust itself to the changing conditions and needs.
Indian Constitution is neither flexible nor rigid, but a synthesis of both. Article 368 in Part XX of the Constitution deals with the powers of the Parliament to amend the Constitution and its procedure.
In fact, 42nd Amendment Act (1976) is known as the ‘Mini Constitution’ due to the important and large number of changes made by it in various parts of the Constitution.
