What's planned
President of Egypt Abdel Fattah al-Sisi is the chief guest this year, and a 120-member military contingent from his country will also participate in the ceremony. Celebrations will last from the birthday anniversary of Netaji Subhas Chandra Bose on January 23 to the death anniversary of Mahatma Gandhi on January 30.
Fifty aircraft will take part in the celebrations, including four from the Army and the Navy's IL-38, which will be showcased for the first and perhaps the last time, a senior Indian Air Force official said.
Several new events are being organised, including but not limited to tribal dance performances, a horse show, martial arts and a military tattoo event. Celebrations will reflect Prime Minister Narendra Modi's vision of "janbhagidari" or people's participation.
The grand finale will showcase a performance by noted singer Kailash Kher. Entry to the event will be free, and tickets can be booked online.
At the Beating the Retreat ceremony on January 29 — the "biggest drone show in India" — 3,500 indigenous drones will light up the evening sky over the Raisina Hill, weaving myriad forms of national figures and events through synchronisation, officials said.
Also, for the first time, a 3D anamorphic projection will be organised during the Beating Retreat Ceremony on the facades of the North Block and the South Block.
On Republic Day on January 26, no passenger or cargo flights will be allowed to take off or land from 08:30 hours to 13:00 hours and from 15:00 hours to 18:00 hours.
