Indira Gandhi's daughter-in-law and Congress supremo Sonia Gandhi and Union Home Minister Sushilkumar Shinde were among the others who paid floral tributes at her memorial.
Several programmes have been organized across the nation to remember Indira Gandhi and her contributions in building the country.
Indira Priyadarshini Gandhi had served as prime minister of India for three consecutive terms (1966-77) and a fourth term from 1980 to 1984 when she was assassinated by her bodyguards this day.
She was the second female to hold the office of prime minister (after Sirimavo Bandaranaike of Sri Lanka) and she remained as the world's second longest serving female Prime Minister as of 2011.
