24,000 people allowed to visit Republic Day parade amid Covid scare

Like last year, this time too the parade may not have any foreign dignitary as the chief guest due to the pandemic, they said, adding India was planning to invite the leaders of Uzbekistan, Turkmenistan, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyz Republic and Tajikistan.

Around 24,000 individuals will be allowed to go to the Republic Day parade on January 26 this year given the COVID-19 circumstance in the public capital, sources in the defence foundation said on Saturday. In 2020, preceding the pandemic struck India, around 1.25 lakh individuals were allowed to go to the parade, they noted. Last year’s Republic Day march occurred in the midst of the Covid pandemic and near 25,000 individuals were permitted to go to it, sources referenced.

Out of the approximately 24,000 people who will be attending the parade this year, 19,000 would be invited and the rest would be the general public, who can purchase tickets, sources said.

All COVID-19 protocols will be followed at the parade. Social distancing norms would be followed while making the seating arrangements, they mentioned, adding sanitiser dispensers will be available everywhere and wearing masks would be compulsory.
