Context: Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Fit India Movement on the occasion of National Sports day at the Indira Gandhi Indoor Stadium in New Delhi. The Prime Minister said, “Only a fit person, fit family, and a fit society will pave way for a great and new India.”


  • The Fit India Movement aims to encourage Indians to include fitness activities and sports in their daily lives to pave way for a healthy and fit lifestyle.
  • National Sports Day is celebrated on the occasion of the birth anniversary of a great sportsperson, Major Dhyan Chand who surprised the world with his fitness, stamina, and hockey stick.
  • The root cause of most lifestyle diseases are lifestyle disorders and there are many diseases that can be overcome by making small changes in our lifestyle. Lifestyle diseases like diabetes and hypertension are increasing in India. Fit India should be seen as a household movement, a daily routine. PM Modi stated that a nation will only become fit when each citizen becomes fit.
  • There is zero investment in the Fit India movement, returns are unlimited.
  • All-Union Ministries should ensure that the Fit India movement reaches every village, panchayat, and school. The movement is not just the central government's but of all state governments, panchayats and local bodies.
  • Fitness should be seen as a celebration, it should be taken up as a part of our daily life and family life. 
  • The University Grants Commission also asked all the universities and colleges to encourage their staff and students to walk at least 10,000 steps on the National Sports Day and follow it up in their daily routine.
  • The UGC has also asked all universities and colleges to prepare and implement a proper fitness plan that includes sports, daily exercise and physical activities for everyone to practice on the campus. The colleges have been requested to publicize the fitness plan on their websites and notice boards and upload it on  UGC's Fit India Movement Portal.
  • CBSE has also asked its affiliated schools to make arrangements for the live streaming of the Fit India Movement launch function. Besides this, both CBSE and UGC have asked the educational institutions to upload pictures and videos of the launch day on a portal monitored by the two educational bodies respectively.
