Every year, 29 January is the day when the four-day long celebration of Republic Day comes to an end with the “Beating Retreat” ceremony.

The music compositions are mostly done by Indians and the function is widely attended, much like the 26 January parade.

This year, 16 military bands, 16 pipes and drums bands from regimental centres and battalions participated in the event, which ended with the illumination of Rashtrapati Bhawan on Raisina Hill.
