Despite the fact that India had got its independence from the British Raj on August 15, 1947, it still did not have a perpetual constitution. The organization of Independent India depended on the altered Government of India Act, 1935 and hence, India, before the implementation of Constitution, was ruled by King George of VI of Britain. On 28 August 1947, a Drafting Committee was designated to draft India’s constitution. This council was headed by Dr. B.R. Ambedkar alongside a few others.
A draft constitution was created and submitted to the Assembly on 4th November 1947. After numerous contemplations and a few changes the Constitution of India was signed on January 24, 1950 and was implemented throughout the country on January 26th, 1950.
