On Sunday, Prime Minister Narendra Modi launched the Fit India School grading system for schools across the country.
Based on the grading system, the rankings for the schools have been divided into three categories -- The Fit India Schools, which is the first level of ranking, Fit India School (3 star) and Fit India School (5 star). The ranking of a school will be based on the importance given to the fitness among students and teachers.
In his popular radio program, Mann Ki Baat on Sunday, PM Modi said, "In the Fit India Movement, schedules have been drawn for ranking schools per under the fitness. The schools that achieve this ranking will also be able to use the Fit India logo and flag."
Explaining the ranking system, the Prime Minister said, "Schools can declare themselves as fit by visiting the Fit India portal. Fit India three star and Fit India five star ratings will also be given."
"I appeal that all schools should enroll in the Fit India ranking system and Fit India should become innate to our temperament. That it becomes a mass movement and bring awareness is what we must strive for," he added.
