At what time Indian flag is hoisted :

In 2002, the code was merged with the Prevention of Insults to National Honour (Amendment) Act, 2005. The Tricolour should always be hoisted in a place of power from sunrise to sunset. While hoisting the flag, the saffron band must always be displayed as the topmost band on the right.

What should we do when the national flag is being hoisted :

While the flag is being hoisted, everyone should face it. People should stand in attention and sing the national anthem. 9. No other flag should fly higher than the Indian flag or placed side-by-side.

Can Indian flag be hoisted 24 hours :

Responding to industrialist Navin Jindal’s petition, the Home Ministry has decided that Indian citizens can fly the tricolour night as well, provided the flagpole is at least 100 metres tall and the flag itself properly illuminated. Indian citizens can now fly the National Flag even at night.
