Udupi: As India gears up to celebrate its 75th Independence Day, the government of India has launched a new initiative, “Har Ghar Tiranga”. Prime Minister Narendra Modi has appealed to Indians to participate in the campaign by displaying the national flag in every home from August 13 2022, to August 15 2022. The campaign has started to deepen our bond with Tricolour.


Udupi Deputy Commissioner Kurma Rao M speaking with Udayavani said, “Like every year this year also vehicle owners can display a flag on their vehicle, but make sure that you do not disrespect it.”

“A recent amendment made by the government of India on July 20, 2022, stated that the national flag can now be hoisted both day and night, only if it is displayed in the open or on the house of a member of the public. Before this amendment, the Tricolour could only be hoisted between sunrise and sunset. Celebrate Independence day like how you all used to celebrate,” he added.

He further added, “The national flag must be displayed distinctly, and occupy an honourable position. The saffron band of the flag must always come on the top, and it should never be displayed in an inverted way. A damaged or untidy flag must never be displayed.”
