The First Constitution Day Of India On 26th November 2015

Constitution is an important document for any nation. It is the grundnorm around which all other legal, administrative and judicial aspects revolve. Constitution also lays down the boundaries and parameters for the rights and obligations of various stakeholders governed by the same. This makes the Constitution the supreme authority that has to be looked at and acted upon in all circumstances.

India decided to celebrate the Constitution Day on 26th November each year. The first Constitution Day was celebrated by India on 26th November 2015. It corresponds with the anniversary of the adoption of the Constitution of India by the Constituent Assembly of India on 26th November 1949. The Constitution of India came into force on 26th January 1950.

The main objective of celebration of Constitution Day is to spread awareness about Constitution of India. Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) is on the forefront of spreading awareness about Constitution of India and legal issues for many years. We have launched many dedicated blogs for different aspects of Indian and foreign laws covering the Constitutional issues pertaining to Indian and Foreign Constitutions.

Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) recently celebrated the first Constitution Day of India on 26th November 2015. We believe that the best way to celebrate the first Constitution Day of India was to launch a dedicated online portal for establishing the first ever Virtual Law Campus (VLC) of India.

Dedicated websites in this regard would be made operational very soon and few of these websites can be accessed here1, here2 and here3. Two dedicated blogs have also be launched in this regard and the same can be accessed at blog1 and blog2. This is in addition to the already existing initiative titled Virtual Legal Education Campus (VLEC) of India.

Our aim is to help Indian Government in establishing the first ever Techno Legal Framework for India that incorporates the Constitutional Principles and Philosophy. Modern day legal issues are very complicated in nature. Information and communication technology (ICT) has added many complexities before the legal systems of various jurisdictions. Areas like cyber law, cyber security, cyber forensics, e-discovery, e-courts, online dispute resolution (ODR), etc are alien concepts for Constitutions around the world. Nevertheless, there impact upon Constitutional protections and obligations is inevitable.

Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) along with its premier Techno Legal Segment known as Perry4Law's Techno Legal Base (PTLB) have been spreading Techno Legal awareness in India and foreign jurisdictions. PTLB Virtual Campus is a unique online Techno Legal Skills Development and training initiative of PTLB. It is working in additional to the Virtual Law Campus (VLC) launched by P4LO. Collectively, the techno legal issues of Indian Constitution would be discussed and taught by us.

We also intend to make the Digital India and E-Governance projects of India Government successful. Presently, the Digital India project is suffering from many shortcomings and they must be removed immediately for the successful implementation of the same. It is logical to add Digital India objectives to Indian Constitution to make it modern and contemporary and Perry4Law Organisation (P4LO) and PTLB have been working in this direction. We hope various stakeholders would find our initiatives and efforts useful.
