What is the News?

More than 1.36 crore school students from all 36 States and UTs participated enthusiastically in the 3rd edition of the Veer Gatha Project.

What is Project Veer Gatha?

Project Veer Gatha was initiated under the Gallantry Awards Portal (GAP) in 2021.

Aim: To disseminate the details of acts of bravery of the Gallantry Awardees and the life stories of these brave hearts among the students so as to raise the spirit of patriotism and instill amongst them values of civic consciousness. 

The project deepened this noble aim by providing a platform to the school students to do creative projects/activities based on gallantry award winners. 

– As part of this, the students framed different projects through various media like art, poems, essays and multimedia on these gallantry award winners and best projects were awarded at national level by the Ministry of Defence and the Ministry of Education.

Two editions of the Veer Gatha Project (i.e. Edition-I and Edition-II) have been conducted in 2021 and 2022 respectively.

The third edition of Project Veer Gatha is now being organized by the Ministry of Defence (MoD) in collaboration with the Ministry of Education(MoE).
