The Fundamental rights are given in Part III of the Constitution and Directive Principles are provided in Part IV of the Constitution. 

Both fundamental rights and Directive Principle are fundamental in the governance of the nation. They provide for state duty and action while the Directive Principle directs the state to take action positively the Fundamental Rights remind not to interfere arbitrarily in individual's right and liberty.

This way fundamental rights talks about individual welfare while the Directive Principles talks about the welfare of the nation as a whole.

Though the Fundamental Rights are enforceable in the court of law and Directive Principles are not, the objective of both the Part is to establish egalitarian welfare State.
