Tricolour to be hoist daily at KVs

Feb 28: After Central Universities, the Union Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry has made it mandatory for the 1,100-plus Kendriya Vidyalayas (KVs) across the country to fly the Tricolour on their premises daily.
In a letter dated February 24, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVs), which comes under the HRD ministry, asked all the schools to make arrangements for hoisting the Tricolour daily, and lowering it before sunset.
“The flag should be positioned at a prominent point of the school so that all students shall be able to salute it every day,” says the letter, which has been signed by KVs Additional Commissioner (academics) U N Khaware.
The Ministry has also asked the Principals of the schools to ensure that there is strict compliance of the Flag Code of India, 2002, and Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971.
Officials here today said the schools will have to comply with the instructions immediately. They claimed that the sight of a rippling flag would remind our students of the difficulties faced by the Freedom Fighters.
