The National Flag may be hoisted or displayed on any day or occasion by a citizen, a private business, or an educational institution.

Earlier, Indian citizens could only hoist the National Flag on specific occasions. However, now there is no restriction on the timing of flag display.

The Government of India has launched an initiative called Azadi Ka Amrit Mahotsav to commemorate and celebrate 75 years of independence as well as the prestigious history of India's people, culture, and achievements.
