Wing Commander Vipul Goyal of the Indian Air Force will command the Inter-Services contingent. The Army contingent will be led by Capt Soham Satpati, and the Navy by Lieutenant Commander Phani Sushanth. Squadron leader Rajesh will lead the Air Force contingent.

Followingly, the Prime Minister and other dignitaries will drive to the saluting dais.PM Modi will be received at the Republic Day celebration by Chief of Defence Staff Gen Bipin Rawat and the three Services Chiefs, Deputy Commander Major General Alok Kakkar had told ANI earlier.

Kakkar had added that 16 marching contingents from Army, Navy, Air Force and Paramilitary forces will take part along with 31 bands overall.

In addition, the Army Air Defence Corps will for the first time take part as a marching contingent while the Signal Corps contingent would be led by Captain Tanya Shergill, who is a fourth-generation Army officer.
