Constitution Of India

The constitution of India is the supreme law of India. It lays down a broad framework that determines the polity of the country. It is a set of principles according to which our country is governed.

The idea that India should have a constitution of its own was put forward by M N Roy.

In 1946, on 16th of May, Cabinet Mission Plan proposed a constituent assembly in order to frame the constitution for India. Consequently, the constituent assembly was constituted in 1946. According to the plan, the total strength of the assembly was to be 389, out of which 296 were to come from British India (292 from provincial legislatures and 4 from chief commissioners’ provinces) and 93 from the princely states.

The 93 members coming from the princely states were to be nominated by the rulers of the princely states, where as the 296 members coming from the British India were to be elected indirectly amongst three principal communities (Muslims, Sikhs and others) in proportion to their population. These 296 members were to be elected by the members of their own community in the provincial legislative assembly.

Clearly, the constituent assembly was partly elected and partly nominated. The assembly included all important personalities of India at that time except Mahatma Gandhi and Ali Mohammad Jinnah.

The constituent assembly held its first meeting on 9th of december 1946 and then took 2 years, 11 months, and 18 days to finalise the constitution.

The constitution was then adopted by the constituent assembly of India on 26th November 1949 and the provisions regarding citizenship and provisional parliament were implemented with immediate effect. The rest of the constitution came into force on 26th of January 1950.

The constitution declares India a sovereign, socialist, secular and a democratic republic, and also guarantees to its citizens justice,equality and liberty and endeavours to promote fraternity. It is the lengtheist written constitution of the world.
