In India, the Army, Navy, Coast Guard and Air Force celebrate their own Army Day (January 15), the Navy Day (December 4), the Indian Coast Guard Day (February 1) and the IAF Day (October 8) respectively. But on Republic Day (January 26), all three services display their full colours and guard of honour.

Actual Mahathma Gandhi's arrival to South Africa is 1893 but hear in the question they have asked in which year it will become century of arrival of Gandhi that is why answer is 1993.

Divya said: (Feb 3, 2015)  
Century, so 1893 and 1993 has hundred years difference.

Swapnil said: (Apr 7, 2015)  
Centenary means a Century.

So he (Gandhiji) arrived in South Africa in 1893, so the Centenary was celebrated in 1993. As he was arrived in South Africa in May, so the it was celebrated in May 1993.

The centenary of Mahatma Gandhi's arrival in South Africa was celebrated in May 1993, exactly after 100 years of Gandhi's arrival in South Africa. Gandhi went to South Africa in May 1893 as a newly graduate lawyer at the age of 24.
