Happy Republic Day 2017At the time of getting independence from the United Kingdom on August 15, 1947, India didn't have a permanent constitution. The drafting committee presented the constitution's first draft to the national assembly on November 4, 1947 and the national assembly signed the final English and Hindi language versions of the constitution on January 24, 1950.
India's constitution came into effect on Republic Day, January 26, 1950, the anniversary of Purna Swaraj Day, which was held on January 2, 1930. Ever since the historic day, January 26 is celebrated as the Republic Day with festivities and patriotic fervor across India.
Let us wish each other Happy Republic Day.
