Prime Minister Narendra of India, Shri. Narendra Modi is all set to launch the much talked about Fit India Movement on 29th of August 2019. As a part of the movement, UGC (University Grants Commission) has asked all the higher educational institutes to aware their students and staff about the benefits of walking, encouraging them to walk at least 10,000 steps a day and making them incorporate this activity in their daily lives.
The UGC has directed the campuses to send the video clips of the activities that are organised as a part of the Fil India Movement 2019. The activities must involve- making fitness plans, doing various exercises and incorporating sports activities on campuses on a regular basis. The fitness plans will be uploaded on the official websites and also offline on the bulletin boards of the campuses. The inaugural session of 'Fit India' Movement' can also be screened live in various colleges, UGC said.
An altogether different UGC fitness portal will be made and will be live soon. The fitness plans and clips will be uploaded on that portal as well. The movement was talked about by Modi directly on his Mann Ki Baat show on radio and it is to celebrate National Sports Day on 29th of August.
Schools and colleges can impact the growth of a student in wider ways than just imparting curriculum education. A lot of efforts can be put to stabilise the physical fitness and mental well being of the students and staff.
