Constitution Day is observed every year on November 26 to mark the adoption of the Indian Constitution by the Constituent Assembly on this day in 1949. It came into force on January 26, 1950.

The Constitution Day was first observed in 2015 as a mark of tribute to India's first law minister BR Ambedkar.
