Droupadi Murmu will take oath as the 15th President of India today, thereby succeeding President Ram Nath Kovind, whose term in office concluded on July 24. Interestingly, Murmu will become the 10th successive president to take oath on July 25 since 1977.

Records show that since 1977, successive presidents have taken oath on July 25. India’s first President Rajendra Prasad took oath on January 26, 1950 — the day India became a Republic. In 1952, he went on to win the first presidential poll.
