The ‘Fitness Pledge’ involves walking at least 10,000 steps on Thursday, August 29, and “follow it up in daily routine”.
The University Grants Commission (UGC) as well as CBSE has directed educational institutions to make the prerequisite arrangements for students and staff to watch the PM’s address.
Meanwhile, UGC has asked educational institutions to introduce fitness plans and daily exercises for everyone on their campuses.
Further, a Fit India Movement Portal is being developed by the UGC where the institutions will be uploading their fitness plans. The institutes have been asked to upload and publicise the fitness plans on notice boards. The same has to be uploaded on the UGC’s fitness movement portal.
