PHP cURL Returning 'NULL' Value

Hi There I am using a Simple curl Operation to show the Values in my Project. But What I am getting is only NULL Value in return.

Here is my Code :

<?php
$url = "https://jsonplaceholder.typicode.com/posts/1" ;
//  Initiate curl
$ch = curl_init() ;
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_URL, $url);
//curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POST, 1 ) ;
//curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_POSTFIELDS, POST DATA)   ;
curl_setopt($ch, CURLOPT_RETURNTRANSFER, true);
$result = curl_exec($ch) ;

curl_close($ch) ;

var_dump(json_decode($result));

?>  

Please Correct Me If I am doing something wrong.
