New Delhi: For the first time in 75 years, the Republic Day parade will start late by 30 minutes due to the corona protocol and homage to security personnel who lost their lives in Jammu and Kashmir (J&K).

Usually, the Republic Day parade used to start at 10 AM but this year it will start at 10:30 AM. The parade usually lasts a total of 90 minutes.

''The delay is caused due to COVID-19-related restrictions and before the parade begins, homage will be paid to security personnel who lost their life in Jammu and Kashmir,'' media reports quoted a police official as saying.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi will pay tribute to the martyrs by laying wreaths at the Amar Jawan Jyoti and the National War Memorial at India Gate.

Notably, ahead of Republic Day in the national capital, Delhi Police has beefed up security in and around Rajpath. Around 300 CCTV cameras have been installed and facial recognition systems have also been installed.

Interestingly, there is a database of 50 thousand suspected criminals in this system.

Due to restrictions related to COVID-19, only 4 thousand tickets will be available and only 24 thousand people will be allowed to attend this function.

On the occasion, the Republic Day parade at Rajpath this year will witness the biggest ever "largest and grandest" flypast with a total of 75 aircraft.

Other aircraft that will show their capability in the parade include Rafale, MiG-29K of the Indian Navy, P-8I surveillance aircraft, and Jaguar fighter aircraft. The Indian Air Force will also display its tableau for the Republic Day celebrations, which also includes combat aircraft like Light Combat Helicopter, Ashlesha MK1 Radar, Rafale, MiG 21.
