The preamble to the Constitution of India is a brief introductory statement that sets out the guiding purpose and principles of the document. The preamble is not an integral part of the Indian constitution as it was first decided by the Supreme Court of India in Beru Bari case therefore it is not enforceable in a court of law. However, Supreme Court of India has, in the Kesavananda case, recognised that the preamble may be used to interpret ambiguous areas of the constitution where differing inteipretations present themselves. As originally enacted the preamble described the state as a “sovereign democratic republic” instead of “socialist secular democratic republic”.
