Ticket Buying Tips
Unfortunately, getting tickets for the Republic Day Parade can be very frustrating. Note that only a certain number of tickets are allocated for sale at each ticket counter per day. In some cases, ticket counters do not receive tickets until late in the afternoon. In addition, there are limits to the number of tickets that can be purchased per person.
Demand for seat tickets for 500 rupees is high and sales are very limited. Only one such ticket can be purchased with each ID card. However, they are still selling very quickly after ticket counters opened at 10am. If you want one of these tickets, it is recommended that you upload at 8 a.m.
100 rupee tickets are decent and easy to get, although only two tickets can be purchased for each ID card.
20 rupee tickets are usually easily available.
