All constitutional rights are human rights but all human rights are not fundamental rights under Indian Constitution. In the Indian Constitution part III deals with exclusively fundamental rights and part Iv deals with Directive Principles of State Policy (Human Rights). Similarly, it is there in International law as International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights (whatever rights considered as fundamental rights in the constitution) and International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (Directive Principles of State Policy). However there is no difference between those above stated two categories of rights, but India fundamental rights are justiciable but rights under Part IV of the Constitution are nonjusticiable. Further, Indian Judiciary remark them as complementary each other.
