The grand ceremony is scheduled to begin at 7 PM at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. This ceremony marks the biggest ever event which will be held in the historic place. The swearing-in ceremony will be attended in accordance with the government’s “Neighbourhood First” policy and subsequently attended by the leaders of BIMSTEC member countries.

More than 100 Non- Residents of India (NRI) also, fly to Delhi to witness the swearing-in ceremony of the Prime Minister.
Following the massive victory of Narendra Modi in the general elections, this ceremony can be seen as a reflection in the size of the gathering. The Press Secretary of the President, Ashok Malik, “It will be the biggest-ever at the Rashtrapati Bhavan. 8,000 people are coming.”
