Fundamental Rights are basic human rights that are guaranteed to all citizens with the vision to promote a dignified life to all individuals. As per the Constitution of India however, the breach of these fundamental rights can only be claimed against the State and hence private entities and individuals are kept outside the confines of the fundamental rights provisions. This becomes all the more problematic in recent times due to the rampant increase of globalization and privatization which gives great importance to the role played by private bodies in the development of the economy. This paper aims to identify who are the parties that fundamental rights can extend to within India by chronologically analyzing the views that have been displayed by the Judiciary over the years and possibly to see if there remains any scope for improvement in the definition of who can a breach of fundamental rights be claimed against.
