Exhibition on Independence to Republic

                 India’s emergence as a free and independent nation after years of colonial rule was an epoch making event. The Congress Resolution of Purna Swaraj in 1929 was a landmark occasion, which led to a chain of events culminating in the Transfer of Power in 1947. After achieving independence in 1947, the process for framing the Constitution was initiated with key leaders like Dr. BR. Ambedkar who was appointed Chairman of the Drafting Committee. With the formal adoption of the Constitution in 1950, India stepped into a new order of a Sovereign Democratic Republic.

            These historic events are sought to be portrayed in the Exhibition on “Independence to Republic” which will be inaugurated on 14 August 2010 in the National Archives of India and will be open for the public till 15 October 2010
