Consider the following statements about Preamble:

  1. Preamble is non-justiciable in nature
  2. Preamble has been sourced from United States Constitution
  3. Preamble cannot be amended

Which of the above statements is/are correct?

Answer: [D] 1 & 2 Only

Third statement is incorrect because preamble can be amended, subject to the condition that no amendment is done to the 'basic features’. The Preamble has been amended only once so far, in 1976, by the 42nd Constitutional Amendment Act, which has added three new words-Socialist, Secular and Integrity-to the Preamble.
