Small functions are held in all towns and cities and even in some big villages. In state capitals, the Chief Ministers and at other places Governors and other dignitaries such as Deputy Commissioners, senior police officers, Mayors of Municipal Corporation, etc. hoist the national flag.
In schools and colleges the Presidents of Managing Committees or Principals of the institutions concerned do the ceremony. In all cases, the function always ends with the recitation of the National Anthem with due respect and regard.
