Republic Day, being a national holiday is celebrated across India on 15th January. The day is marked by a parade and a tribute to the Indian armed forces. Republic Day commemorates the adoption of India’s constitution on January 26, 1950. With its implementation, it replaced the Government of India Act, which had been imposed on our country up to that point.
