Historical Debates

The growth of modern parliamentary institutions is linked with our freedom struggle. Even as our leaders fought against the British Rule, they also demanded legislative reforms so that the concerns and aspirations of our people could be raised in the legislative bodies. The historical debates of the Indian Legislative Council 1858-1920, Council of State 1921-1946, Central Legislative Assembly 1921-1947, Constituent Assembly-Draft Making 1946-1950, Constituent Assembly-Legislative 1947-1949 and Provisional Parliament 1950-1952 will provide the users a deeper understanding of the evolution and growth of our parliamentary institutions. These debates are being digitized in phases and will soon be part of this collection.
