new Delhi. Today the whole country is celebrating Constitution Day for the fifth consecutive year. The written constitution of the country considered to be the most outstanding category in the world is the identity of the largest democratic country India. The whole world knows that any law is made in India or decisions are taken according to the constitution, not other than that. At times, opposition parties against the government also consider the laws, actions or orders passed as non-constitutional. Well, it is a matter of how different and how wrong those allegations are. Today we are going to tell you about the economics of the Constitution. After all, from the beginning of the constitution to the passing of the constitution to the Constituent Assembly, how much was spent on it. Let us also tell you.
Constitution was prepared in more than 1000 days
It took 2 years 11 months and 18 days to form the constitution. Which was passed by the Constituent Assembly on 26 November 1949, then it had a total of 22 parts, 395 Articles and 8 Schedules. At present, the constitution has 25 parts, 470 articles and 12 schedules. Bookstores, government and private libraries and amateurs will be easily available in all markets of the country. The Preamble of the Constitution is even taught in the school. Even the children are reminded of the entire performance. The Preamble to the Constitution is taught in the school assemblies. The country operates from the constitution itself. The Parliament and the Constitution are universal in the country. Nobody is above that.
The constitution was passed in front of so many members
By the way, before the country became independent, the process of constitution of the country had started. Under which a committee was formed. After the Partition, the Constituent Assembly was reorganized on 31 October 1947. As on 31 December 1947, the total number of members of the Constituent Assembly was 299, with the number of provincial members and 70 members of the princely states. The third reading of the Constitution began on 14 November 1949, which lasted until 26 November 1949, and the Constitution was passed by the Constituent Assembly. At that time 284 members of the Constituent Assembly were present.
Spend crores of rupees
Now the question is, how much money would have been spent in the constitution? This question is urgent because around 300 people were engaged in this work during that time. Many countries must have visited. If the salaries of those people and the stationery used during this period are added, by the time the Constitution came into force, Rs 6.4 crore had been spent on it. If that price is calculated at today’s time, then several hundred crores of rupees will be lost.
