The Indian national flag is being sold in post offices around the country as part of the Har Ghar Tiranga promotion as the nation gets ready to commemorate its 75th Independence Day.
Thanks to a government modification to the Flag Code of India, the Indian flag may now fly at homes throughout the day and night. The Tricolour could previously only be flown exclusively between sunrise and dusk. According to the Ministry of Culture website, “‘Har Ghar Tiranga’ is a campaign under the
of Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to encourage people to bring the Tiranga home and to hoist it to mark the 75th year of India’s independence. The idea behind the initiative is to invoke the feeling of patriotism in the hearts of the people and to promote awareness about the Indian National Flag.”
The customer must place an order on the post office website, pay for it, and have the flags delivered from the closest post office that has them in stock, according to a notification by the Department of Post issued on July 28, 2022. “The delivery of National Flag will be made free of cost to customer,” the Department stated.
According to the Department of Post, “The Department proposes to sale of National Flags under “Har Ghar Tiranga” Campaign from its ePostoffice Portal. The customer shall order on this portal, make payment and delivery of Flags shall be effected from the nearest Post Office where Flags are available.”
