Krishna Teja (#574940 ), the KKGSS (F) i.e Karnataka Khadi Gramodyog Samyukta Sangha Federation is the only authorized manufacturing unit in India to produce National Flags. The BIS (Bureau of Indian Standards) had set certain standards in designing and making the Tricolor Flag like material, thread count, strength of the yarn, color, size, fastness of colors used for dyeing etc. The Khadi and Village Industries Commission has accorded permission to KKGSS (F) to produce our National Flags as per the strict guidelines of the BIS. Any defect in the making the flag is considered as a serious offence. The KKGSS (F) took it as a challenge and has succeeded in making our National Flags as per the norms laid down by BIS. They are the only suppliers of Tricolor Flags to the entire nation i.e to all Govt offices / agencies, Ministry of Defence, Para Military Forces and all other govt organizations.
Besides Indian National Flags, the unit also produces khadi cloth and other khadi items like carpets, bags, caps, bedsheets etc and other items like processed honey, handmade paper etc.
The unit has an annual turnover of Rs.15 million. The production of khadi was started in 1982 and the federation even runs a training college in Textile Chemistry.
So, when there is so much of manufacturing work in the unit, it remains busy through out the year and not with any work.
Please note govt organizations / offices should not use i.e hoist a defective flag. In case the National Flag which was hoisted / used the previous year has the slightest defect, then a new one has to be ordered. I think you got the point.
And use of plastic National Flags is banned (not sure) as plastic is non-biodegradable materials while use of paper flags is allowed as paper is an eco-friendly material.
