Naresh Kadyan,

Representative of the International Organisation for Animal Protection – OIPA in India, C – 38, Rose Apartment, sector – 14, Prashant Vihar, Rohini, DELHI.


SHO, Police Station, Prashant Vihar, Delhi

Subject: Complaint for the violation of the Flag Code of India, 2002.


Kindly refer to the Flag Code of India (Copy attached here with for ready reference), relevant portion is reproduce here as under:

Part I


The National flag shall be a tri-colour panel made up of three rectangular panels or sub-panels of equal widths. The colour of the top panel shall be Indian saffron (Kesari) and that of the bottom panel shall be Indian green. The middle panel shall be white, bearing at its centre the design of Ashoka Chakra in navy blue colour with 24 equally spaced spokes. The Ashoka Chakra shall preferably be screen printed or otherwise printed or stenciled or suitably embroidered and shall be completely visible on both sides of the flag in the centre of the white panel.
The National flag of India shall be made of hand spun and hand woven wool/cotton/silk khadi bunting.
The National flag shall be rectangular in shape. The ratio of the length to the height (width) of the flag shall be 3:2.
The standard sizes of the National flag shall be as follows:-

Flag Size Dimensions in mm

6300 x 4200, 3600 x 2400, 2700 x 1800, 1800 x 1200, 1350 x 900, 900 x 600, 450 x 300, 225 x 150, 150 x 100

Where as there are many people involved in Delhi, all over India as well, manufacturing National flag of India, using plastic materials along with the different size of the flag as defined in the Flag Code of India, 2002. These plastic flag disposal is also objectionable because people throw it away in the dust bean after its misuse, where as plastic is harmful to our environment.

Being a vigilant citizen of India, I tried to find out the list of manufacturers in Delhi and I found following trader, who was ready to provide 30,000 plastic National flag of India @ 2/- per piece of size 8"x5.5"



TEL; 011-22801624 CELL; 9910526352

Then I contact to Delhi Police and Media people to expose this illegal trade and today 30,000 pieces of plastic National flag of India recovered size 8"x5.5".

It would be pertinent to mention here that I have already sent mail to the Commissioner of Delhi Police, matter has been taken up with the Her Excellency the President of India’s Secretariat vide No. PRSEC/E/2011/12749, Chief Minister of Delhi office vide no. CMO/PGC/2010/540264 and No. GNCTD/E/2011/00856 dated August 10, 2011 (Printed copies are also attached here with for ready reference)

Hence the above said people violated the provisions of the Emblems and Names (Prevention of Improper Use) Act, 1950 (No. 12 of 1950) and the Prevention of Insults to National Honour Act, 1971 (No. 69 of 1971), Flag Code of India, 2002 read with any relevant legislations like cheating, criminal conspiracy and playing with the emotions of the people etc.

So necessary legal action may kindly be taken against all offenders.
