When the officials are confused whether it's the 68th or 69th Republic Day

The officials of the state government messed up and published the wrong year

When the officials are confused whether it's the 68th or 69th Republic Day

At times, people tend to confuse Independence Day (August 15) and Republic Day (January 26) in India but we don't expect the officials to make such a mistake. 

One department of the government published the wrong year of the Republic Day.

In order to celebrate the Republic Day, collectors of all states were sent a circular to arrange a programme for the day. But the circulars which were sent had published the wrong year. The circular mentioned 68th Republic Day when we are celebrating 69th Republic Day (the Constitution of India came into effect on 26 January 1950).

If government officials mess up, what are we supposed to say to school students,” Rajesh Pandya, Teacher, Fatima Devi.

A lot of people are saying that this year’s Republic Day completed 68 years but it is 69th year as on 1950 India become a Republican Nation and so it is officially the 69th year.
