    It's not compulsory, canonical tag is only use for home page. Basically canonical tag help to prevent duplicate URL from search engine understanding.

    Actually, canonical tags are not for the home page only, nor are they used on every single page. They are used when there is another URL on your site with the same content.

    Using canonical tag simply tells the search engine that this page is the original version and will be indexed in the database.

    A canonical tag tells search engines what page it should display in search results. This means that if you have two pages with duplicate content, adding a canonical tag will tell the search engine which is the master copy and what page is the clone/duplicate.
