In this research paper there will be an introduction of “constitutional response to corona virus pandemic in India” whereby its status in present scenario. The study depicts how this outbreak has rapidly engulfed the whole world in its trap affecting millions of life and disrupting the socio economic condition globally. Every country is taking the safety majors declared by WHO and the following the guidelines made by their own government. India too has taken major step to break its chain by declaring one day Junta Curfew. The government has declared nationwide lockdown for 21 days making whole country to standstill. The study also focuses on the various changes that have been brought in laws and how effectively both the central and the state government working in their spheres to control the situation. The major extent of this cause can be prevented by maintaining the social distancing. At the outset, I have tried to distinct between constitutional validity of lockdown and the measures taken to enforce it. How the country responses to it and to what extent the lockdown is constitutionally valid. Then secondly, I have focused on provision of national emergency and Is the declaration of national emergency on COVID-19 constitutionally valid?
