As part of the programme named "Yeh India Ka Time Hai", the government has identified certain bands which would be visiting campuses across the country and perform patriotic numbers, especially from Bollywood.
"A private entertainment firm has been taken on board which has identified around a dozen rock bands. The shows will be planned in various institutions over the next month," a senior official said.
The programme has been organised to celebrate 70 years of India's Independence and 75 years of the Quit India Movement.
The varsities and schools also organised oath-taking events where students, teachers and non-teaching staff took a pledge to make the country a "terrorism-free, caste-free, corruption-free, uncleanness-free and poverty-free society".
