Republic Day
11 Maagh 1425 (26th January 2019 - Saturday)

Republic Day is celebrated annually on January 26, in New Delhi, the capital of India, state capitals and Union Territories. India became independent on August 15, 1947, but it was on January 26, 1950, when the constitution of India was adopted that India became a sovereign democratic republic. Since then, this day began to be observed as India’s Republic Day.

The day is celebrated at New Delhi with great fanfare. The festivities in the capital include parade where the President of India takes the salute of representative contingents of the armed forces, police, school children, fire service brigade, etc. Watched by a vast concourse, with many foreign Heads of Government, the parade winds its way through Rajpath. In the evening a special function is held at the National Stadium where folk dancers from different states present their characteristic dances. On January 29, mass bands of the armed forces beat a retreat at an evening function at Vijay Chowk to bring the festival to a striking end.
