India will hold Republic Day celebrations on Saturday, January 26, to mark the anniversary of the 1950 Constitution of India. Events will be held nationwide, with the largest celebrations taking place in New Delhi. The Republic Day Parade will be organized in New Delhi along the Rajpath Boulevard from Raisina Hill to India Gate. A military parade, the Beating Retreat, will also be organized in New Delhi around Raisina Hill and Vijay Chowk. A heightened security presence and associated transportation disruptions are to be expected in New Delhi and other major cities on January 26. A heavy security presence is also to be expected in Jammu and Kashmir due to fears of a possible militant activity ahead of the celebrations.
Individuals present in India are advised to monitor developments to the situation, avoid all protests and demonstrations as a precaution, and adhere to all instructions issued by the local authorities.
