Republic Day Parade 2023: Tickets, Timings, Guidelines, And Complete Schedule
The Republic Day of India is one of the most important national holidays in the country, celebrated annually on January 26th to commemorate the adoption of the Indian Constitution in 1950. The day is marked by a grand parade in the capital city of New Delhi, featuring a display of India's cultural and military heritage, as well as a showcase of the country's progress and achievements.
However, this year in 2023, the GoI (Government of India) has decided to reserve the front row for special official invitees. Shramjeevis and their families, Kartavya Path maintenance workers, and other community members like rickshaw pullers and vegetable vendors will be seated in the front row.
The theme for this year's Republic Day celebration is "participation of the common people." The chief guest of the parade is Abdel Fattah al-Sisi, the president of Egypt.
In this article, we will look at the Republic Day celebrations in India in further detail, providing details on ticket availability and how to purchase them as well as the full schedule.
