The first meeting for the constitution of India was held on 9 December 1946 in the Constituent Assembly, which had 207 members, including nine women.

January 26 has been chosen as the date for Republic Day because, on the same day in 1930, the Indian National Congress (INC) unveiled Purna Swaraj in Lahore, the declaration of India's independence from British colonial rule.
