Culminating the four-day long Republic Day celebrations, the Beating of the Retreat ceremony will be held at Vijay Chowk in New Delhi today. 15 military bands, 18 pipes and drums bands from regimental centres and battalions, and one band each from the Indian Navy and Indian Air Force are participating in the ceremony this year. Additionally, bands from the State Police and Central Armed Police Force will also perform for the first time.
