The 75th Republic Day parade in the capital showcased the prowess of the Indian Army with marching contingents from various regiments.

A contingent of the Indian Army's Sikh Regiment, commanded by Major Sarabjeet Singh, marched down the Kartavya Path. Established in 1846 from the remnants of Maharaja Ranjit Singh's 'Sher-e-Punjab' army, the Sikh Regiment has a rich history, contributing significantly to various battles and campaigns.

It played pivotal roles in the North-West Frontier Province during British India and participated in various World War I battles and campaigns, including Tofrek (1885), Saragarhi (1897), La Bassee (1914), Neuve Chapelle (1914-15), and Hai (1917). Post-Independence, the Sikh regiment continued its crucial contributions in Srinagar (1947), Tithwal (1948), Burki (1965), Raja (1965), Poonch (1971), and Parbat Ali (1971).
