What is the Indian Constitution called?

The Constitution of India is the supreme law of the land. The Constitution of India is often associated with the phrases, “Of the people, for the people and by the people”. The Indian constitution is considered the longest written constitution of any sovereign nation in the world. The Indian Constitution has been the permanent instrument that ensures the working of the government system. 

Sir Ivor Jennings called the Constitution of India a “lawyer’s paradise” because the legal language and phraseology adopted by the constitution-makers makes it a complex document. 

Often, critics have called the Constitution of India a “Carbon Copy of the 1935 Act”, a ‘patchwork’ of several documents of the world constitutions or a ‘borrowed constitution’.
