ABOUT CONSTITUTION DAY  

Constitution Day 2021

Also known as 'Samvidhan Divas', Constitution Day is celebrated on 26th November every year to commemorate the adoption of the Constitution of India. On 26th November 1949, the Constituent Assembly of India adopted the Constitution of India, which came into effect on 26th January 1950.
 
The Indian Constitution was first handwritten in two languages, English and Hindi. The Constituent Assembly was the committee set to draw up the Indian Constitution. Dr B. R. Ambedkar was the Chairman of the Constituent Assembly who went on to be known as the Father of Indian Constitution. 
 
The adoption of the Indian Constitution signified the complete removal of British Rule in India and this making it a Democratic Republic.
