According to municipal commissioner, Sharansh Mittar, the trial run for unfurling of the flag was earlier scheduled for January 2016, but as Ranchi had gone ahead and hoisted India’s tallest flag at that time, RMC decided to reschedule its project as it was their objective too. He said:

 “As Ranchi unfurled the flag before us, we had to re-issue the tender and our project was delayed by three months. With flag dimension 105×70 feet at a height of 82 metres, it’s the largest national flag on the tallest mast. And this was our objective too.”
