There are a couple of possible answers to your question about citing the Indian Constitution. It depends which citation style you are using (for example APA or MLA) and whether or not you've accessed the Constitution online or in print. Here's an example using APA style and citing a copy you found online:
Nonperiodical Web Document, Web Page, or Report
List as much of the following information as possible (you sometimes have to hunt around to find the information. If there is a page like http://www.somesite.com/somepage.htm, and somepage.htm doesn't have the information you're looking for, move up the URL to http://www.somesite.com/):
Author, A. A., & Author, B. B. (Date of publication). Title of document. Retrieved from http://Web address
Government of India. (Date the Constitution was approved). Constitution or whatever full title is at the top such as Constitution of the Nation of India. Retrieved from http://theaddress.ofthewebsite/
If you need MLA or another citation style and/or, if you're citing a print version of the Consitution from a book, feel free to ask a follow up question, or, if you're comfortable searching around yourself via Google, you'll have some luck if you search for citing "documents" or "primary sources" along with the citation style you need. Thanks!
