Right to property is a legal right available to any person.

Currently, the Right to Property is governed by Article 300A of the Indian Constitution, which states that no person shall be deprived of their property except by authority of law. However, it does not have the same level of protection and enforceability as Fundamental Rights. The state has the power to acquire and requisition private property for public purposes, subject to certain conditions and just compensation.
