New Delhi, October 23: The Supreme Court on Monday asked the Centre to take a call on regulating the playing national anthem in cinema halls. The SC is going to review its 2016 verdict of standing in cinema halls and public places during National Anthem.

A bench headed by Chief Justice Dipak Misra said it was needless to say that the Centre will have full discretion in the matter.

The court said that while taking a decision, the government will not be influenced by the apex court’s 2016 order wherein playing of the national anthem in cinema halls was made mandatory. (IANS)
