We (India) celebrate Republic Day on the 26th of January every year to mark the day on which our constitution came into effect in 1950 after this day our country truly become democratic and sovereign state. While India got independence on 15th August 1947 from British raj but on this day India became Republic.

The Constitution was adopted by the Indian Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, and came into effect on 26 January 1950 with a democratic government system, completing the country’s transition towards becoming an independent republic.

There is a reason behind we celebrate Republic Day on 26 January in 1930. This day Indian National Congress (INC) proclaimed the declaration of Purna Swaraj (complete independence) rejecting the dominion status offered by the British Raj.

The President of the country raises the national flag on the Rajpath in New Delhi. People from all over the country visit the Rajpath. On this day to witness the grand celebration of Republic Day.
