Vande Mataram- Mogubai Kurdikar (Raag Khambavati) 1947:
Vande Mataram- Vishnupant Pagnis (Raag Brindavani Saranga)

Vande Mataram- Pt. Omkarnath Thakur (Raag Kafi)
A function was organised on the eve of Indian Independence to celebrate that auspicious moment (mid night at parliament). Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel sent pt. Omkarnath Thakur a wireless message (he was in Chennai) to sing Vande Mataram there. Pt. Omkarnath replied that he would sing full- 22 line song.
In 1923, his guru pt. Vishnu Digambar Paluskar was about to sing Vande Mataram at Kakinada adhiveshan of Congress, he was doing that since Congress Adhiveshan at 1915, Maulana Mohammad Ali who was presiding the conference tried to stop him, supported by his brother Shaukat Ali. ‘Since the song praised Hinduism’ according to them, it should not be sung on this dais was what they said. Reacting very strongly Pandit Paluskar made them hear that this is a public meeting and not the place of worship of the Muslim religion. Those who object may very well leave the convention and abort, Panditji said, and thereafter rehearsed the full song.
Sardar Patel agreed. He left Chennai by a special plane to reach Delhi. He sang Vande Mataram mid night at the parliament and his song was again broadcasted by Akashvandi at morning 6:30 AM. (Source: hinduway)
