Mention a Few Directive Principles of State Policy?

These are guidelines to the Central and State Governments to bear in mind while framing laws and policies. The directive principles of State Policy are unique features of our Constitution. They serve as ideals for the State. Unlike fundamental rights, directive principles are not enforceable by any Court but they are in the nature of ideals to be pursued by the state while formulating policies. Directive principles such as the right to work, compulsory education and equal pay for equal work are non-justiciable rights in favour of the citizen. Directives such as minimizing inequality, development of cottage industry organization of village Panchayats, uniform civil code, and protection of environment, forest and wild life are in the nature of ideals to be pursued by the State while formulating policies
