NATIONAL FLAG PRODUCTION CENTRE
A matter of greatest pride for KKGSS(F) is that the tri-colours, wherever they are fluttering in the sky, or will be fluttering soon, are produced here.
During the five decades since its inception, the Federation (KKGSS) has made tremendous progress, expanded range of its products culminating in the production of National Flags. The KKGSS is the only centre in India to produce the national flags.
National Flag has been reserved for the Khadi Sector for supply to various Govt. agencies, Ministry of Defence, Para Military Forces, etc for official use. For the production of National Flags, the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) has set some standards in the design constructional details and other particulars. It should be made of hand spun and hand woven cotton Khadi bunting. Earlier whatever National Flags were being produced they were not up to the BIS norms. Later, the Khadi and Village Industries Commission accorded permission to KKGSS to produce the tri-colours and supply them to the entire Nation. Production of National Flags as per strict guidelines of BIS is not an easy task, because, any defect in the Flags such as colour, size, thread count, strength of yarn, fastness of the colours used for dyeing etc.,


will be considered as a serious offence and is liable for a fine or imprisonment or both, as per the provisions of Flag Code of India 2002. The KKGSS(F), Hubli, has taken this task as a challenge and succeeded in making the National Flags as per BIS norms under licence No. CM/L-6549686.
The stages through which the Flags are being manufactured are quite difficult and are as follows:
