Bengaluru: The Department of School Education and Literacy in Karnataka has issued an order making the singing of Jana, Gana, Mana mandatory in response to allegations that several primary and high schools in the city were avoiding the national anthem during the morning assembly.

According to sources, complaints about certain private schools in Bengaluru not following the required protocol for singing the national anthem during morning assembly were filed to Education Minister B. C. Nagesh.

In order to instil a sense of pride and respect for the country, the department has mandated that schools require children to sing the national anthem, citing an order from the Union Ministry of Home Affairs.

A task to visit the schools violating the rule has been given to officials of the Deputy Director for Public Instruction (DDPI). In case of space constraints during the morning assembly, the rule further said that the kids may sing the national anthem in their respective classrooms.
