Abstract: The Constitution of India lays down the basic framework delineating fundamental rights, codes, procedure, duties and responsibilities of state and citizens. Fundamental Rights are the backbone of a democratic nation. Equality is a basic human right that is included in our constitution. Any discrimination will be considered a violation of the Indian Constitution. In the new era of science and technology, genetic discrimination proliferated at full tilt. The significance of this issue was considered in case of law in 2017. In this article, we will discuss what genetic discrimination is and its prevalence in India and other countries.

Keywords: Genetic Discrimination, Fundamental Rights.
