Basically It Honours the date on which the Constitution of India came into effect from 26 January 1950 in Historical Times. 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, However almost two and a half years later after gaining independence, the Constitution of India came into effect on 26th January, 1950, making India one of the most populous democracies of the world completing the country's transition towards becoming an independent republic. 26 January was chosen as the Republic day because it was on this day in 1930 when Declaration of Indian Independence (Purna Swaraj) was proclaimed by the Indian National Congress as opposed to the Dominion status offered by British Regime.
India gained independence through the historic Indian Independence Act of 1947, an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom that divided British India into two dominions. On 15th August 1947, India became independent but it was still a constitutional monarchy with King George VI as the head and Earl Mountbatten as the Governor General. The country did not have it's own constitution and laws that ruled the land were still based on the colonial Government of India Act of 1935
It was then that the importance of having an Constitution became very evident, following which the Drafting Committee, with Dr B R Ambedkar as a chairman, was appointed with the objective to draft a permanent constitution. Dr Ambedkar, who had once famously said that "If I find the constitution being misused, I shall be the first to burn it," was not only a great leader but also an inspiration for everyone. The committee then worked tirelessly for months and on 4th November 1947, they submitted the first draft of the Constitution to the Assembly, which took over two years (precisely 2 years, 11 months and 18 days) to finally adopt the Constitution.
If you have ever wondered why January 26 was the chosen day to bring the Constitution into force, there is an interesting reason behind it. During the Lahore Session of the INC (Indian National Congress) in 1929, it was for the first time in the history of the Indian Struggle of Independence that the demand for complete independence was made. Following this, 26th January 1930 was declared as Purna Swaraj Diwas (meaning Independence Day). So when the Assembly was finalising the day on which the Constitution should come into effect, 26th January was the preferred choice to honour the wish of the freedom fighters who were the first to demand complete independence.
