Corporate world united
The corporate world will distribute flags to all its employees to hoist the tricolor at home, while the wholesale traders are also preparing to distribute the tricolor to the people along with the shops across the country. But questions are also being raised about the availability of the flag.

Praveen Khandelwal, General Secretary, Confederation of All India Traders (CAT), who attended the DPIIT meeting, said that the work of getting information about the stock of flags in the market across the country is going on and maximum 4-5 crore flags are estimated to be available. These include flags available with Khadi Village Industries. This time permission has also been given to make flag from man made polyester.
