Indian Constitution:

The Formulation of Constituent Assembly:-
1. The Cabinet Mission which had three Cabinet Ministers of British Parliament as its members (Panthik Lawrance. Sir Staford Crips and Sir Alexander) came in India in 1946 to elect a Constituent Assembly of India to frame a new Constitution and a working government. The first meeting of the Assembly was held on 9 December 1946 presided by Shri. SachehidaNarid Sinha as its acting Chairman hut Muslim I eayue boycotted it. Later on Dr. Rajendra Prasad was elected its chairman.
2. The Chairman of the Drafting Committee was Dr. B.R. Ambedkar.
3. The Constitution took 2 years, 11 months and 18 days for its preparation. The Constituent Assembly passed it on 26 November 1949, but it came into being on 26 January 1950 and thus India became a Republic on the same day. There is a reason to bring it into being on 26 January 1950 because in its Lahore Session in December 1929 the Congress had decided to fight for Poorna Swaraj or Complete Indepedence of India and 26 January 1930 was celebrated as the day of Complete Indepedence. Since then every year 26 January was celebrated as the Indepdence Day. That is why our leaders chose 26 January 1950 as the day to enforce the Constitution of India to maintain the historical glory of this day. On that day India became a Republic. Since then this day is celeberated as the Republic Day.
4. When India got Indepedence on 15 August 1947 Lord Mountbeton became the first Governor General of India. He was also the last Victory of India under England. After him Shri. C. Rajagopalachari became the first as well as last Indian Governor General of free India. This designation was equal to that of our President at present.
5. On 26 January 1950, the day India became Republic and our own Constitution Came into force Dr. . Rajendra Prasad became our First President. But the first formal election of the President was held in 1952. He was the only President of India till now who was elected for two Consecutive terms.
6. The advisors of the Consituent Assembly were Sh. B.N. Rao & Sh. Khaitan.
7. The initial words of the Preamble of Constitution are “We, The People of India”. The ultimate source of Indian Constitution and Law is the people. Our’s is the lengthiest written (90 thousand words) Constitution of the world.
