PM Modi's choice of attire on the two occasions of Independence Day and Republic Day is much of interest though PM Modi wears traditional dresses of a particular tribe or area on other occasions too, like recently, he was seen in a traditional Khasi attire as he inaugurated several projects in Shillong in December 2022.

In 2021, on the 72nd Republic Day, PM Modi wore a red bandhej headgear which was a gift from Jamnagar's Royal Family. In 2020, PM Modi wore a saffron bandhej headgear.
