The first meeting of the Assembly was held on 9th December, 1946 as the sovereign Constituent Assembly for India. On December 11, Dr.Rajendra Prasad was elected its permanent Chairman. It was held in an atmosphere of uncertainty, because the Muslim League boycotted the Assembly. In spite of this, the Assembly made a substantial progress and adopted and ‘Objective Resolution’ which later became the Preamble of the Constitution. It appointed various Committees to deal with different aspects of the Constitution. The report of the Committees formed the basis on which the first draft of the constitution was prepared. On August 29, 1947, a Drafting Committee of 7 members was set up under the Chairmanship of Dr.Ambedkar.
