Special Secretary BR Sharma, a 1984 batch IAS officer in the Ministry of Home Affairs, will head the committee.
The committee, which will have joint secretary level officers from 11 ministries and department of the central government, would also recommend changes in the existing laws, if required.
"It has to submit its recommendations in form of a report within six months," a senior ministry official told NDTV.
According to him, most ministries in the government would be represented in this committee.
The centre had set up the committee after the top court, in October last year, observed that the people "cannot be forced to carry patriotism on their sleeves" and it cannot be assumed that if a person does not stand up for the national anthem, he or she is "less patriotic".
"The committee will give recommendations regarding regulations of playing and singing national anthem and to suggest changes in the acts and orders relating to the Insult of National Honour Act 1971," said the official.
