India celebrates Constitution Day on November 26th each year to commemorate the official adoption of the Indian constitution in 1949. The day also officially celebrates the rights and freedom of every citizen of India, and it also encourages the population to be aware of the importance of law and order.
The day primarily honors Dr. BR Ambedkar for his significant role and contribution to India's constitution, which is why he is also known as the "Father of the Indian Constitution."
The day was officially established on November 19, 2015, when the Ministry of Social Justice and Empowerment notified the Government of India's decision to celebrate the 26th of November every year as 'Constitution Day,' with the main goal of promoting constitutional values among Indians.
