Private property is a human right, says the Supreme Court of India.

Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights confirms that Right to Property is a human right.

Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights confirms that Right to Property is a human right.Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (UDHR) enshrines the right to property as everyone has the right to own property alone as well as in association with others and also no one shall be arbitrarily deprived of their property.

According to an article about the protection of human rights published by the Press Information Bureau (PIB), the UDHR had two basic conceptions; the right to a healthy or adequate environment and the idea that environmental human rights can be derived from other human rights, usually – the right to life, the right to health, the right to private family life and the right to property, based on the Protection of Human Rights Act, 1993.

The Supreme of India passed judgement on 8 January 2020 for a case filed by a woman whose 3.34-hectare land was forcibly taken by the Himachal Pradesh Government in 1967 for construction of a road. The judgement states that the right to property was previously a fundamental right under Article 31 of the Constitution. The right to property ceased to be a fundamental right by the Constitution (Forty-Fourth Amendment) Act, 1978. However, it continued to be a human right in a welfare state, and a Constitutional right under Article 300 A of the Constitution.
