The oldest book on the making of the constitution, which is available in the Parliament Library, was published in 1923, the release said.

Films on the making of the constitution, working of the Constituent Assembly and role of B.R. Ambedkar as the chairman of the drafting committee are part of the exhibition.

Visitors are guided to a special enclosure where the original copies of the constitution in Hindi and English have been maintained in two oxygen-free storage cases. The original copy is made of hand-made paper and has paintings.

The release said a “calligraphed copy” of the constitution in Hindi and English has been put on display in the members’ reading hall.
