Summary The basic structure doctrine was announced by the Supreme Court in Kesavananda Bharati v. State of Kerala in 1973. This book argues that basic structure review in India is an independent and distinct type of constitutional judicial review which applies to all forms of state action to ensure that such action does not 'damage or destroy' the 'basic features of the Constitution'
