“I, Draupadi Murmu, swear in the name of God that I will faithfully and honestly discharge the duties of the office of the President of India and that I will try to uphold, uphold and protect the Constitution of India to the best of my ability. I will dedicate myself to the service and welfare of the people of India.”

Under Article 60 of the Constitution of India, every President and every person acting as President or discharging the functions of the President shall take this oath before entering his office. The swearing-in ceremony takes place in the presence of the Chief Justice of India or, in his absence, in the presence of a senior judge of the Supreme Court.

Once the oral oath is accepted, a government-stamped affidavit is signed and submitted. From that moment he will be the President of the Republic. Today Chief Justice of India N.V. Murmu took office as President in the presence of Ramanna.
