On 26th January 2023, India will be celebrating its 74th Republic Day. Even though the celebrations are always worth witnessing and special every year, this year they’re going to be more special as workers from the Central Vista redevelopment project and Kartavya Path have been given a special invitation for the Republic Day celebrations.
Moreover, according to a senior official in the Defense Ministry, special arrangements have been made to provide accommodations for those who are unable to attend the Republic Day celebrations.
Around 1000 special invitees will attend
Around 1000 special invitees will attend the much-awaited function, including Central Vista project workers, Kartavya Path maintenance staff, vegetable vendors, rickshaw pullers, small-business owners, milk booth employees, and the top eight school band competition teams.
The Republic Day Parade 2023 is also open to members of tribal communities, divyangjans, Veer Gatha winners, Egyptian and Japanese delegations, participants in the Interpol Young Global Police Leaders Program, students from Delhi government schools, and more.
The list from 2022 included frontline workers, sanitation workers, autorickshaw drivers, and construction workers.
According to report, this year visitor’s number was significantly reduced due to Covid-19 restrictions. Only invitees who have received two vaccinations are permitted for the protection of the guests. Additionally, visitors are asked to keep a 6 foot distance, wear masks, and adhere to other Covid protocols inside the enclosures.
