New Delhi, September 20, 2023 – The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a circular, Acad-109/2023, dated September 15, 2023, extending the last date for conducting activities and uploading best entries of Veer Gatha 3.0 on the MyGov portal. This decision comes as a relief for schools affiliated with CBSE, providing them with more time to participate in this patriotic initiative.
Revised Deadline for Veer Gatha 3.0 Activities
In a previous circular, Acad-97/2023, dated August 23, 2023, CBSE had announced the commencement of Veer Gatha 3.0, an event aimed at celebrating and recognizing the bravery of Indian heroes. Schools were instructed to organize various activities and select four best entries to be uploaded on the MyGov portal.
However, recognizing the challenges faced by some schools and the enthusiasm among students and teachers to participate, CBSE has decided to extend the deadline. The new deadline for conducting activities at the school level and uploading the four best entries on the MyGov portal is now September 30, 2023.
Project Veer Gatha Edition 3.0
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) introduces Project Veer Gatha Edition 3.0 to instill courage and patriotism in students. It honors acts of bravery and pays tribute to gallantry award winners. The project has evolved since 2021 and offers various categories and activities for students of different age groups, encouraging them to explore the lives of these heroes. Submission deadline is extended to September 30, 2023, with recognition and awards at national, state, and district levels. Resources for inspiration include the Gallantry Awards website and an NCERT book. This project aims to inspire students to celebrate the spirit of bravery.
