India’s Constitution is well and truly a living document. Since 1951, we have amended the Constitution 100 times, gradually moulding it to a changing worldview. Every day, new debates over how we should change it further rage.


Using data compiled by PRS Legislative Research and Vidhi Centre for Legal Policy, Pykih Data Visualisation created this Interactive Constitution for The Hindu . We’ve mapped every Constitutional amendment ever, searchable by year, government, Article of the Constitution, and amendment. This Interactive Constitution lets you see which are the most and least amended parts of the Constitution, a look into how this living founding text has grown.
