A booklet on Yoga Protocol and a 33 minute DVD of Aasanas, which will be performed at the Rajpath has also been prepared by the Ministry of AYUSH.

In addition, Prime Minister Narendra Modi posts a daily tweet on his Twitter account with young persons demonstrating different Yoga postures.

An hour-long programme will be held at Rajpath starting at 6.40 am and will be attended by Modi along with Cabinet Ministers, Minister of States, MPs as well as diplomats and foreign nationals. In all, over 35000 people are expected to take part including students, National Cadet Corps Cadets, Central Reserve Police Force and Yoga Institutions.

Respective Ministries are also issuing a postal stamp and special coins. The coins will be of the denomination of Rs 10 and Rs 100.

External Affairs Minister Sushma Swaraj announced that out of the total of 177 countries, which have given co-sponsorship, 47 countries are from the Organisation of Islamic Countries.
