Delhi: MCD issues guidelines for proper disposal of national flags

The Municipal Corporation of Delhi (MCD) has instructed all zonal offices to ensure proper disposal of the national flag under the central government’s Har Ghar Tiranga campaign, a senior MCD official said.
The official added that the corporation attaches great importance to the tricolour. “Instructions have been given to all zonal offices that when a flag is damaged or gets soiled, it should not be thrown aside or disposed of casually , but shall be disposed of with the dignity attached to the flag in accordance with the rule in the flag code,” she said.
The Har Ghar Tiranga campaign has been launched by Prime Minister Narendra Modi as part of the Azadi ka Amrit Mahotsav celebrating the 75th year of independence. Under this campaign, the national flag is proposed to be hoisted atop more than 20 crore houses as well as government and private institutions from 13-15 August across the country.
