Happy Republic Day 2022

On January 26, 1950, India took a stride ahead after obtaining independence from colonial authority by establishing its own constitution. This year, on January 26, the country will mark its 73rd year as the Republic of India.
History of Republic Day
After India earned independence on August 15, 1947, the country lacked a permanent constitution. On August 29, 1947, a motion was introduced to create a Drafting Committee.
The Drafting Committee, led by Dr B R Ambedkar, was entrusted with writing the Indian Constitution. The first session of this committee was convened on December 9, 1946, and additional rounds of meetings were held over the next two years to debate and deliberate on the text of the Constitution.
The Drafting Committee’s final session ended on November 26, 1949, and the Constitution was adopted on the same day. However, it did not go into force for another two months, on January 26, 1950.
The Drafting Committee originally had 389 members, but the number was reduced to 299 after India’s independence and division.
The Importance of Republic Day
The Indian Constitution was adopted on November 26, 1949, but it went into effect on January 26, 1950. This was done to mark the Indian National Congress’s announcement of Purna Swaraj, or Complete Independence, on January 26, 1930.
The Indian Constitution is made up of 395 articles grouped into 22 sections and 8 schedules. It establishes some essential rights that must be enjoyed by all people of this country, regardless of bias. It also establishes certain essential responsibilities for all citizens of the country.
