India observes Independence Day on August 15 every year as a National Holiday to remember the day the Country gained its Independence from the United Kingdom and the provisions of the 1947 Indian Independence Act, which gave the Indian Constituent Assembly legislative authority, went into force. King George VI remained the head of state of India until it became a Republic on January 26, 1950, which is recognised as Indian Republic Day. At that time, the dominion prefix, Dominion of India, was replaced with the sovereign law Constitution of India, which also abolished the use of the dominion prefix. Following the Freedom Movement, known for its primarily nonviolent resistance and civil disobedience, India gained Independence.
