Must read

First Female President of India

For a country that boasts of treating its women like goddesses, it is a surprise that not many women have made their mark in Indian politics and administrative posts. Before Smt. Droupadi Murmu became the 15th President of India, a post which she currently holds there was only one instance where a female had held this post. Pratibha Patil was India’s 1st woman to hold the post of President.

On July 25, 2007, Smt. Pratibha Patil, the 12th President of India, took the presidential assumption of office, becoming the nation’s only the 1st woman President. She carried to the position a wealth of administrative and political competence from the Maharashtra State Legislature and both national Legislative assembly, as well as a strong constitutional understanding and a strong determination to create a distinction in the lives of the contextually marginalized. 

Smt. Pratibha Patil also became the 1st individual from Maharashtra to hold the position of President. Patil was the 1st woman Governor of Rajasthan between 2004 and 2007, before earning the title of India’s first female president.

Mrs. Pratibha Patil also assumed the designation of being the first woman Commander-in-Chief of the Indian Defence Forces when she assumed the presidency. During her term, she frequented bordering locations to gain a comprehensive insight into the difficulties and to inspire troops deployed in these kinds of locations.

President of India

In India, the President serves as the Chief of State. He or she is referred to as the nation’s first citizen. For the President of India under the constitution of India, it states that he or she shall exercise the administrative functions of the State either personally or via persons subordinated to him or her

The Indian Constitution was enacted on Nov 26, 1949, and went into effect on Jan 26, 1950. Dr. Rajendra Prasad was the country’s first democratic chief of state, the President.
