President Ramnath Kovind assumes office
The elaborate ceremony for change of guard in Indiaís highest Constitutional office started on Tuesday with a gentle knock on the door of President-elect Ram Nath Kovindís Akbar Road residence.

It was military secretary to the President, Major General Anil Khosla, inviting 71-year old Kovind and his wife Savita to the Rashtrapati Bhavan, where President Pranab Mukherjee was waiting for them in the study.

The two leaders then went to the grand Rashtrapai Bhavan forecourt where they were escorted to the saluting dais.

Mukherjee took the last salute of the Presidentís Bodyguard (PBG) with President-elect Kovind standing to his left.

He and his successor then drove down Raisina Hill to the Central Hall of the Parliament in a black limousine. Escorting them was grand equestrian procession by the PBG, dressed in white ceremonial uniforms and blue turbans with gold ornamental work.

The road from Rashtrapati Bhavan to Parliament was lined with jawans of the armed forces.

The morning had begun with the president-elect offering floral tributes to Mahatma Gandhi at Rajghat.
