Rigid Constitution

Rigid Constitution is a Constitution which stands above the other laws of the country, while flexible constitutions do not.[1]

After the usage by A. V. Dicey, many perceive that the difference of rigid and flexible is whether it has a special provision about amendment or not. In other words, Rigid Constitution is a constitution which has an entrenched clause.
