The department has also ordered the post offices to deliver the flags in the minimum possible time as the sale window is very narrow just before Independence Day.
The government has amended the Flag Code of India to allow the Indian flag to be hoisted day and night at the homes of citizens. Earlier, the Tricolour was allowed to be hoisted only from sunrise to sunset.
The size of the Indian flag is 20 inches x 30 inches in size (without flagpole).The sale price of the tricolour is Rs 25/- per piece. There is no GST on the Indian flag.
