Elaborate security arrangements were made for the Republic Day, with multi-layered ground-to-air security cover at the main venue. More than 10,000 security personnel were deployed for the security of the Republic Day celebrations, according to police officials.

Apart from that CCTV cameras and facial recognition devices, anti-aircraft guns were installed to avoid any untoward incident.
