Students in government schools of Madhya Pradesh will no longer respond to their daily roll calls with Yes Sir/Yes Mam. They will instead answer their roll calls by saying ‘Jai Hind.’

This step, the state education board said, is to instill a sense of patriotism among the students.

Earlier in November 2017, Madhya Pradesh School Education Minister Vijay Shah had said that answering roll-calls with “Yes, Sir or Yes, Ma’am” does not foster patriotism.
