This would be the fourth time a prime minister would take oath at the forecourt instead of the Durbar Hall, which can only accommodate a far smaller gathering of about 500.
Late PM Chandra Shekhar was the first prime minister to be administered the oath of office in the forecourt in 1990.
Atal Bihari Vajpayee also took oath here in 1998.
