The English East India Company (1757-1858), exploited trade and dismantled traditions in East and Southeast Asia. The Indian subcontinent witnessed wanton oppression for centuries.

British government not only destroyed trade and tradition, but they were successful enough in tampering with the social fabric of India. Inspired by our freedom struggle, the makers of the Constitution had a vision for strong administrative and legislative pillars, as a result, the Indian Constitution came into being in the form of written documents and acts.

Our Constitution is the supreme set of laws and rules, which helps set up the government machinery of the government of India at all levels i.e center, state, and local. This set of laws helps to define the relations between different institutions, and organs of the government, such as the executive, the legislature, the judiciary, and the fourth state.

The Constitution of India was enacted by the Constituent Assembly on November 26, 1949, and subsequently came into effect on January 26, 1950.

The Constitution commemorated Purna Swaraj on 26th January 1930.
