7 Easy Ways to Republic Day Parade 2015

Every Year on 26th January, I and My Family position ourselves in front of the Television, eagerly waiting for the LIVE telecast of the Republic day parade to start on Doordarshan. Since 2013 it has started telecasting it LIVE on it's Youtube Channel. Here is the Link in case you are curious ;)

Yesterday, I was wondering if I could see 66th Republic Day of India Live at Vijay Chowk, you know.. witnessing the parade and the Colorful Procession (Jhankis)  for real would be a Life Time Experience Indeed! But the Question was, from where can I buy the Tickets? And if the tickets are actually available or not?

Here came our Friend GOOGLE. I typed "Buy Republic Day Ticket 2015" ..and TADANG! 

I got all the basic information I needed . Thanks to Sharell Cook ( goindia.about.com) :).  With the Help of HOHO's Guest Relation Executive (Ms. Dolly Sharma) who knows nook and corner of Delhi roads and where-about, I have prepared a quick list of Ticket Counters.

The price of tickets for the Republic Day Parade on 26th January 2013 will be Rs. 300/- and Rs 150/- for reserved seats and Rs. 50/- and Rs. 10/- for unreserved seats. The tickets for the Beating Retreat Ceremony (Full Dress Rehearsal) on 28th January 2013 will be in the category of Rs.50/- and Rs.20/- respectively and will not have reserved seats.
