Hon’ble Prime Minister has launched the FIT INDIA Movement on 29th August 2019 With a view to make physical fitness a way of life. FIT INDIA Movement aims at behavioural changes – from sedentary lifestyle to physically active way of day-to—day living. FIT INDIA would be a success only when it becomes a people’s movement. We have to play the role of a catalyst.

You would agree that ‘How to Live’ ought to be the first pillar of formal education. This involves teaching and practicing the art of taking care of one’s body and health every day. Therefore, schools have to be the first formal institution after home where physical fitness is taught and practiced.

In the above background, the Fit India Mission has prepared a system of FIT INDIA SCHOOL Certification with simple and easy parameters as below:

The following parameters would apply:

  1. Having one teacher trained in PE, and such teacher is physically fit and active.
  2. Having a playground Where two or more outdoor games are played.
  3. Having one PE period each day for every section and physical activities (sports, dance, games, yogasan, PT) take place in the PE period.

  3. School has celebrated Fit India School week.
  4. Having Sports facilities for 4 sports including the 2 outdoor sports.
  5. Every student learns and plays 2 sports – one of which could be a traditional/indigenous/local game.

The following additional parameters (over and above 3 Star certification) would apply for claiming the highest certification:

  2. For FIT INDIA 3 Star or 5 Star certification the school would have to file its claim online at The Fit India Mission would get the claim verified and thereafter issue an online certificate and commendation letter. The same would be followed in print and dispatched through postal mail.
