Special teams, anti-aircraft guns and snipers have been deployed to keep a vigil on the eight-km parade route from Rajpath to Red Fort. Hundreds of CCTV cameras as well as drones will be watching people's movements along the parade route.

Though India attained Independence on 15th August 1947 while till the year 1949 there wasn't been any constitution framed permanently for the nation, thus it was the day when world's largest democracy's constitution came into existence. The 113-member contingent will be led by sub-inspector Stanzin Noryang.

The entire central and New Delhi region will have almost 50,000 security personnel drawn from the Delhi Police and the central security forces.
