Concept Note

The Constitution of India, 1950 was enforced on 26th of January, 1950 giving the last finishing touch to India becoming an independent and self governed nation. The Constitution of India replaced the various acts and statutes that loosely held the governance of this magnanimous nation, most prominent being the acts of 1935 and 1919.

The drafting of the Constitution of India was a highly meticulous process taking into account the diversity of the nation and paying attention to the fact that all these people divided by barriers of geography, language and religion are adequately represented paying heed to the maintenance of unity as the paramount consideration.

The purpose of the Constitution still remains the same, holding on to the basic constitutional principles that govern this nation adapting and amending to the forces of change over the years.

This symposium attempts to draw from the evolution of Constitution of India that was documented in the archives and the constitutional assembly debates as well as observing the changes that have swept through the over 100 amendments that have taken place and critically appraise the present situation as well as comment upon the need for the future.
