Republic Day marks India’s adoption of a republic constitution on January 26, 1950, after gaining freedom from the British community. It is an auspicious day that is extremely close to the hearts of all Indians. This is because Indians fought a hard battle, lost lives to get freedom from the British Empire. This day is celebrated every year on 26 January with great pride to honor the Constitution of India as it came into force on the same day in the year 1950.

On November 4, 1947, the drafting committee presented the Indian Constitution to the national assembly. After that, the Constitution of India came into effect on January 26, 1950. This is the day when India was declared as the ‘Purna Swaraj Country’. From then, we began celebrating this day as the anniversary of the “Purna Swaraj Day”.
