For a freely falling body, we say that the initial velocity is 0. At that instant, can the body be said to have a constant acceleration of 9.8m/s2

The initial velocity is considered as zero is a body is dropped from a certain height (i.e. it falls freely).
At that instant, the acceleration is also zero as it is the rate of change of velocity.
