Many viewers became confused between the 75th and 76th Independence Day celebrations as the Doordarshan National YouTube channel highlighted India’s 76th Independence Day Celebrations during the live stream.
For her Independence Day celebration on August 15, India is dressed to the nines. However, there is still debate as to whether it is the 75th or 76th Independence Day. Some others even claim that it is the 74th.
To answer the question, “Which Independence Day is it?” you have to do some math. Would India have been free from British rule for 75 years this year or the next? On March 12, 2021, Prime Minister Narendra Modi started the “Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav” to celebrate and remember India’s 75th anniversary of independence. This began a 75-week countdown to our anniversary of independence.

Simple math to determine if it is the 75th or 76th Independence Day
This is for you. India won its arduous freedom from more than 200 years of British domination on August 15, 1947. Thus, India commemorated its first anniversary of independence on August 15, 1948, its tenth anniversary on August 15, 1957, its twentieth anniversary in 1967, and its seventieth anniversary in 2017. In keeping with this, India will commemorate 75 years of freedom from British control in 2022.
However, from August 15, 1947, which would be regarded as the first, India will have celebrated 76th Independence Day.
