Kesavananda Bharati case (1973) Supreme Court stated that Parliament is empowered to abridge or take away any of the Fundamental Rights. It laid down a new doctrine of the ‘basic structure’ (or ‘basic features’) of the Constitution. It ruled that the constituent power of Parliament under Article 368 does not enable it to alter the ‘basic structure’ of the Constitution. By various judgements, there have emerged basic features of the Constitution like Powers of the Supreme Court under Articles 32, 136, 141 and 142. Article 32 The right to move the Supreme Court by appropriate proceedings for the enforcement of the Fundamental Rights is guaranteed. The Supreme Court shall have the power to issue directions or orders or writs any of the fundamental rights. Article 136 The Supreme Court is authorised to grant in its discretion special leave to appeal from (a) any judgment, decree, determination, sentence or order (b) in any case or matter (c) passed or made by any court or tribunal in the territory of India. Article 141 The law declared by the Supreme Court shall be binding on all courts within the territory of India. Article 142 provides discretionary power to the Supreme Court as it states that the court in the exercise of its jurisdiction may pass such decree or make such order as is necessary for doing complete justice in any cause or matter pending before it.
