Constitution day India which is also known as the Samvidhan Divas is celebrated every year on November 26 to mark the day on which the Constitution of India was adopted. While the adoption of the Constitution took place on November 26, 1949, it came into effect on January 26, 1950.
It was marked as a part of a year-long celebration of 125th birth Anniversary of Dr.B R Ambedkar, the Chairman of the Drafting Committee of Constituent Assembly.
The aim of declaring November 26 as the Constitution Day of India is to spread awareness on the importance of the Indian Constitution and to spread awareness about its architect, Dr B R Ambedkar.
