Whether right to observe silence is a fundamental right?

No, it is not. Article 19 doesnot say so.

Certainly Not!!!

Article 19 doesnot say so.

it is infact one of ou fundamental right as under art 21; right to live in a peaceful conditions .
it is in a way, our fundamental right since scope of art 21 is extremely wide and is always enforceable.
we can avail this right under IPC by invoking the provisions of public nuisance.
Also, it has been held in several PILs that a factory creating noisepollution in residential areas are against art 21.

Dear sir,
The article 20 or 21 of the Indian Constitutiion provides that a person can not be compelled to give evidence against himself, in this way the right to ramain silent can be said to be a fundamental right.
