In 1946, The Constituent Assembly of India meets for
the first time to write the Constitution of India.
An idea for a Constituent Assembly of India was
proposed in 1934 by M. N. Roy, a pioneer of the
Communist movement in India and an advocate of
radical democracy.
It became an official demand of the Indian National
Congress in 1935, and was accepted by the British in
August 1940.
On 8 August 1940, a statement was made by Viceroy
Lord Linlithgow about the expansion of the Governor-
General's Executive Council and the establishment of a
War Advisory Council.
This offer, known as the August Offer, included giving
full weight to minority opinions and allowing Indians to
draft their own constitution.
Under the Cabinet Mission Plan of 1946, elections were
held for the first time for the Constituent Assembly.
The Constitution of India was drafted by the
Constituent Assembly, and it was implemented under
the Cabinet Mission Plan on 16 May 1946.
The members of the Constituent Assembly were
elected by the provincial assemblies by a single,
transferable-vote system of proportional
representation.
The total membership of the Constituent Assembly was
389 : 292 were representatives of the states, 93
represented the princely states and four were from the
chief commissioner provinces of Delhi, Ajmer-Mewar,
Coorg (Near Madikeri) and British Baluchistan.
The elections for the 296 seats assigned to the British
Indian provinces were completed by August 1946.
Congress won 208 seats, and the Muslim League 73.
On 3 June 1947 Lord Mountbatten, the last British
Governor-General of India, announced his intention to
scrap the Cabinet Mission Plan; this culminated in the
Indian Independence Act 1947 and the separate
nations of India and Pakistan.
The Indian Independence Act was passed on 18 July
1947 and, although it was earlier declared that India
would become independent in June 1948, this event led
to independence on 15 August 1947.
The Constituent Assembly (elected for an undivided
India) met for the first time on 9 December 1946,
reassembling on 14 August 1947 as a sovereign body
and successor to the British parliament's authority in
India.
