Government school students in Madhya Pradesh's Satna district will have to say "Jai Hind" instead of the usual "Yes ma'am, sir" when they answer roll call. 

The announcement was made on Tuesday by MP school education minister Vijay Shah. 

The diktat is to be implemented from October 1. 


Shah added that should the experiment is successful, formal permission will be taken from the chief minister to implement the rule in all schools in the state.


Shah added that in an effort to inculcate patriotism amongst the youth, the state government has already instructed schools to hoist the tricolour and sing the national anthem every day.

Private schools have been advised to do the same.
