(1) Clarity or Definiteness:
By clarity and definiteness we mean that every clause of the constitution should be written such a simple language, as should express its meaning clearly.
The constitution should not be lengthy. It should contain only important things and unimportant things should be left out.
It means that the constitution should be applicable to the whole country or besides the central government, there should be mention of the structure and powers of state or provincial governments. Mention should also be made about the important matters relating to the rights and duties of the government and the citizens.
The constitution should not be too rigid to hinder the process of amendment when needed.
(5) Declaration of rights:
A good constitution must contain the fundamental rights of the people. In the constitutions of countries like India, Soviet Union, China, France, America, Japan and Italy such types of declarations have been made.
(6) Independence of Judiciary:
Independence of Judiciary is another quality of a good constitution. The judiciary should not be under the control of the executive and it should function freely and act as the guardian of the Fundamental Rights of the people without favour or fear.
(7) Directive Principles of State Policy:
In a good constitution mention must be made of the Directive Principles of State Policy, because it helps in the establishment of a welfare state. These principles also serve as a beacon for the government. Though these principles have been mentioned in a few constitutions of the world, yet it is useful and not harmful to mention them. These principles have been included in the Constitution of India and Ireland.
Most of the qualities mentioned above are available in the Constitution of India. It contains the declaration of the Fundamental Rights, Directive Principles of State policy. Independence of Judiciary, etc. Till22nd June, 1986 has been amended 52 times. It is thus clear that Constitution of India is not quite rigid.
