Maharashtra Government decided to discontinue Guard of Honour to ministers

Apr 18, 2015 14:03 IST

The State Government of Maharashtra on 18 April 2015 decided to discontinue the colonial-era practice under which police guard of honour was given to ministers and top officials. Government termed the practice as a waste of time and resources.

The directive will apply to all ministers and senior state officials. The guard of honour was given to ministers and officers during their district-level visits.

This practice of providing the guard of honour was reserved for the Governor Generals and Viceroys during the British age.
