New Delhi: Elaborate security and traffic

ceremony on Sunday marking the end of Republic Day
celebrations.

Several bands from Army, Navy and Air Force will play
military tunes at the ceremony to be held in Vijay Chowk.
Vijay Chowk will remain closed for traffic between 4 pm
and 9:30 pm on Saturday and Sunday. DTC and Blueline buses which
pass through Vijay Chowk in their normal routes will be
diverted.

President Pratibha Patil will be the chief guest of the
function.

Traffic will not be allowed on Rafi Marg between round-
