Indian Constituent Assembly Meetings   Indian Constituent Assembly, which was formed as a consequence of the discussions between the Indian leaders & members of British Cabinet Mission, had its 1st meeting on December 9, 1946. The purpose of the Assembly was to present India a constitution, which would dole out a lasting principle & hence selected a number of committees to methodically explore an assortment of aspects of the projected constitution. The recommendations were debated, discussed & revised many times before Indian Constitution was confirmed & officially adopted 3 years later on 26th November, 1949.   

Constitution came into power   Although India became a free nation on 15th August, 1947, it enjoyed the true strength of Independence on 26th January, 1950 when the Indian Constitution finally came into force.
