The Preamble to the Constitution of India outlines the basic principles and objectives of the Constitution. It states:

"We, the people of India, having solemnly resolved to constitute India into a Sovereign Socialist Secular Democratic Republic and to secure to all its citizens:
Justice, social, economic and political;
Liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith, and worship;
Equality of status and opportunity;
and to promote among them all
Fraternity assuring the dignity of the individual and the unity and integrity of the Nation."

While the Preamble emphasizes liberty of thought, expression, belief, faith, and worship (options a, c, and d), it does not explicitly mention "economic liberty" as an objective. The Constitution does, however, guarantee certain economic rights and aims to achieve social and economic justice for its citizens through various provisions and policies.

Therefore, the correct answer is (b) Economic liberty.
