The Constitution of India was adopted by the Constituent Assembly on November 26 in 1949. It came to effect on January 26, 1950 and since then, celebrated as Republic Day. Since 2015, November 26 has been observed as the ‘Constitution Day of India’ or ‘Samvidhan Divas’ in Hindi.

This year, India celebrated its 72nd anniversary of adopting the constitution. President of India, Ram Nath Kovind addressed the gathering on Constitution day at the Central Hall of Parliament today and mentioned how important the Constitution of India is for the development of the Nation.

“72 years ago in this Central Hall, the framers of our Constitution had adopted this document for a bright future of independent India. I believe that the development journey of India has been progressing on the strength of our constitution”, said the President of India during his address.

He even made a mention of women’s participation in the Constituent Assembly. “India is one of those countries in which women had the right to vote, ever since the foundation of the Nation. Women were also members of the Constituent Assembly”, he added.

We at The Law Reporters wish every one of our Indian readers, a very happy Constitution Day of India.
