The Flag Foundation of India (FFI) and An IIT Delhi start-up have collaborated with each other for developing advanced textiles for tricolour. A MoU has been signed regarding the same.

The start-up called "SWATRIC" is going to conduct d research and development activities to execute the same. According to a senior official of IIT Delhi, the Supreme Court of India has declared in 2004 that the right to fly the national flag freely, with respect and dignity it is a basic fundamental right. He also said that since the climate of India is tropical, it is a big challenge to design and develop engineered fabric for the flag. He also explained that the material of the flag should be such that it is compatible with the extreme weather conditions and is not very heavy too.

According to Bipin Kumar, Professor, The Textile and Fibre Engineering Department, IIT Delhi, it is important that the quality of the flag fabric should be improved by helping the manufacturers with proper knowledge on the core subject and standardization.

According to Major General (retired) Ashim Kohli, CEO, Flag Foundation of India, the foundation has always faced the challenge of obtaining good quality flags. He also said that the foundation is excited to work with the team of IIT Delhi who is developing appropriate technologies to make a proper flag.
