Apart from this all the state governments also celebrate the event with good spirit by organizing several cultural activities. The day marks the adoption of the Constitution of India to govern the country replacing the previously followed Government of India Act of 1935. India adopted the Constitution on November 26, 1949, and the same came into effect starting from January 26, 1950, and hence the Republic Day is observed on January 26 on an annual basis.
