Republic Day is celebrated on January 26 to mark the significance of “Purna Swaraj Day” (declaration of Indian Independence Day). The day was celebrated in 1930 by the Indian National Congress to protest the British colonial rule in India. The Constitution of India officially came into force on January 26, 1950. In the process of making it, the 308-member Constituent Assembly took two years, 11 months, and 17 days to draft the historic and most important document for the country.
