Republic Day 2021

Republic Day 2021 will be celebrated on 26th January 2021, Tuesday. This year it will be the 72nd Republic Day which will be celebrated with the same patriotism and grandeur. The day commemorates the date when the Constitution of India came into force on 26th January, 1950.

This was the day when India became Independent Democratic Republic Country with its own constitution.

It gives the power in the hands of  its citizen to elect its government and work for the welfare and development of the country.
