There is a little bit of change in the structure of the security personnel who are going to participate in the Republic Day parade there.

This was confirmed by Ranchi Police Sergeant Major TK Jha.In the past, district and state police were invited to take part in the Republic Day parade.Last year,the Jharkhand police invited Patna police.It also facilitated interaction with them since law and order control has become a trans-border phenomenon now a days,says Jha.
