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. The Prime Minister during his speech on Fit India said that fitness is not just a word but a way to lead a healthy life.
As per the policy of Government of India, sports activities are highly encouraged in every ministry/ office/ institution in order to find talented persons and to reduce general problems like hypertension, high blood pressure, diabetes etc. and to improve the work culture and personality of the personnel. IIITDM Jabalpur will organize sports activities in the campus in recognized events, to encourage sportsmanship generally, and to promote friendly relations among the Students/ Faculty & Staff of the IIITDM Jabalpur and to foster a close association among them under Fit India Movement.
We hope that these activities would result in greater harmony, health-consciousness, brotherhood, goodwill, work sincerity; sporting spirit, open mindedness, etc. among Students/ Faculty & Staff of the IIITDM Jabalpur. The Sports activities will help the Institute to identify talented and dedicated sports persons from the Staff/Faculty ranks who will be able to assist the student's sports activities, help with officiating at various student sports events, and provide valuable guidance to the student teams.
We will strive to raise the standard of sports at IIITDM Jabalpur and to work for the development of character and values through sports amongst all.
