Explanation:

The Ninth Schedule was introduced in the Constitution of India during the Prime Ministership of Jawaharlal Nehru. It was added by the First Amendment Act of 1951 to provide protection to certain laws from judicial scrutiny on the grounds of violation of fundamental rights. The purpose of the Ninth Schedule was to safeguard land reform laws and other legislations aimed at promoting social welfare and economic development from legal challenges. This measure was taken to prevent the judiciary from striking down these laws as unconstitutional.
