The speeches and documents published in this volume mainly relate to the formation of constituent Assembly and its working up to August 15, 1947.
This volume of the Constitutional Documents, Munshi Papers ends with the historic ceremony of August 15, 1947. Up to this date the Constituent Assembly was primarily concerned with the privileges and the main work on constitution-making began after Independence, with Dr. B. R. Ambedkar as Minister of Law. Therefore, the documents included in this volume are of a miscellaneous nature, and are probably of more interest to the students of history.
