About Fit India Movement

On 29 Aug 2019, the Honorable Prime Minister launched nation-wide “Fit India Movement” aimed to
encourage people to inculcate physical activity and sports in their everyday lives and daily routine. So
as to take this mission forward, CBSE has decided that each year SECOND and THIRD WEEK in
November, a total of 06 working days, will be celebrated as “Fitness Week” in all its affiliated
schools. This movement therefore endeavors to alter this behavior from ‘Passive Screen time’ to
‘Active Field time’ and the aim of the objective is to develop Sports Quotient among all the students
to achieve a healthy lifestyle. Such movement will also instill in students the understanding for
regular physical activity and higher levels of fitness enhancing in them self-esteem and confidence.
