History of Republic Day in India

India celebrates Independence Day because of its freedom from British rule; Republic Day is celebrated for the coming into force of its constitution. A constitution was prepared and submitted to the assembly on 4th November the year 1947. On 24th January 1950, the first draft of the Indian constitution was signed in both Hindi and English by the national assembly. Then the constitution of India came into effect on 26th January 1950, which is celebrated as the Republic Day of the country. On the very same day, India was declared as Purna Swaraj, which means complete freedom, and thus the day started to be celebrated every year as the anniversary of the Purna Swaraj. The first Indian Republic Day was dedicated three years after the independence of the country in 1950. On January 26, 1950, the first President of India, Dr. Rajendra Prasad, took an oath at Durbar Hall of the government house. The constitution was drafted in such a way that the citizens of India could select their government.
