    Ans is B
    Art 21 can be restricted but not suspended (Art 359).Like all phone tapping (= interfering someone's personal liberty/life/right to privacy) by authorised agency is permitted if it in the greater interest of the nation.
  • @sunnywadia but that restriction will be according to law.

    1. Methane.
    2. Carbon - di - oxide.
    3. Nitrous Oxide.

    A. 1 only.
    B. 2 & 3 only.
    C. 1 & 2 only.
    D. 1, 2 & 3.
    Ans would be D
  • @sunnywadia but that restriction will be according to law.
    @oceania
    Obviously every restriction has to be according to some law ,it can't not be arbitrary.
    FRs are not absolute (except 17), they are subjected to limitation.But these limitation can't imposed arbitrarily/indiscriminately.There has to be some law/provision for such limitation.

    To simplify , on the basis of limitation/restriction, FRs can be grouped as
    1. Rights with express limitations (Eg Art. 19) - means that limitation is explicitly mentioned in the constitution.
    2.Rights without express limitations- Eg Art. 21
    3.Rights with no limitation/restriction (Eg 17)

    I hope it clears your doubt.

    limitation comes from judicial review/activism
    Giving you an eg
    Art. 21 mentions only procedure established by law.So in effect article 21 only requires that there must be a valid law.The court will not examine the fairness/reasonabilty of law. SC in a Gopalan case upheld this (i.e no due process to be followed as it is not there in Article 21 explicitly)

    But then SC ,in Maneka Gandhi case reverses its earlier verdict and has taken upon itself the power to analyse the law & to see whether the law depriving a person of his liberty is just and reasonable.
    According to SC, Due process of law is not incorporated (expressed) but is inherited in the principle of the constitution.
  • @Oceanus you have to choose non-viral disease.Polio is very much a viral disease.
