The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has written to affiliated schools separately, urging them to urge students, instructors, and their families to register to watch the Republic Day Parade and Beating the Retreat Ceremony live streamed.

It instructed schools to play five promos prepared by the defence ministry during breaks while conducting online classes, presenting highlights from Republic Day 2022.

"Keeping in view the recent surge in COVID cases, the ministry of defence has taken an initiative to invite the citizens to watch the live streaming of Republic Day and the Beating the Retreat Ceremony and to show their solidarity with the Republic of India," a letter to CBSE-affiliated school heads said last week.
