mam for vro exam there are some supreme ,court cases regarding fundamental rights, are that cases are imp for vro exam mam
namaste mam... duties are non justiceable and are backed by statute law... means duties are implicitly enforceable... and it is applicable only to citizens but if aliens infringes any of duties then statute law which operate implicitly will work on alien or not.. plz clarify it mam
an alien will be liable if it happens in India. however it also depends on his position and imminities, if any. Duties as far as the Constitution is concerned are.only for the citizens as specified in Article 51A
