0.2 Indian Standard Colours for Ready Mixed Paints (IS: 5-1949) was first published! in 1949'. Subsequently, it was found necessary to include the three colours of the National Flag of India (Cotton Khadi) (see IS : 1 - 1951), namely, (a) India Saffron, (b) India Green, and (c) Navy Blue. In view of this, in the revision issued in 1955, the name of Indian Standard Colour No, 106 was changed. from 'Royal Blue' to 'Navy Blue' and. two more colours, namely; Indian Standard Colour No. 284 India Green and Indian Standard Colour No. 574 India Saffron ~ere added. After the publication of the revised version OS : 5 - 1955), the Fire Fighting Sectional Committee (BD'C 22) of lSI, under advice [fora the Standing Fire Advisory Committee of the Government of India; Ministry of Home Affairs, proposed that Indian Standard Colour No. 536 'Poppy' be renamed as 'Fire Red" and be reserved solely for the Fire Services in this country . This suggestion was accepted. by the Ministry of Home Affairs and also by the Paints and Allied Products Sectional Committee .. This change was made effective by Amendment No. 1 (May 1960) to IS: 5 - 1955. Recently; however, the Paints and Allied Products Sectional Committee was made aware of the difficulties faced by the All India Radio (AIR) due to the reservation of Indian Standard Colour No. 536 exclusively for the Fire Services. In view of this and the fact that AIR has to comply with international agreements, which require the painting of high radio masts with paint corresponding to international orange shade, the Sectional Committee decided to issue this Second Revision. which includes one more colour, namely! Indian Standard Colour No, 592 'Inter-

I national Orange' corresponding to Colour No" 1205 in Federal
