A senior official from the ministry said that a private entertainment firm was taken on board for identification of such bands. The firm has identified a dozen such rock bands. The shows are being planned at various institutions over the span of next month.
The programme is being organized to celebrate the 70 years of India's independence as well as 75 years of the Quit India Movement this year.
Earlier this month, the government had also asked all universities and educational institutes to organize trips for students to memorials of freedom fighters and residences of martyrs to mark the beginning of the celebration of the 70th Independence Day.
