Kartavya Portal launched by HRD ministry

Kartavya Portal launched by HRD ministry

On the occasion of 70th Constitution Day also known as Samvidhan Divas observed on 26 November 2019, Union Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ launched the kartavya.ugc.ac.in portal for holding monthly essay competitions for students.

Key Points:

  • In the primary stage, the portal will be used for holding monthly essay competitions for students. There are many other activities which include quizzes, poster making, debates pertaining to Nagrik Kartavya Paalan Abhiyan. 
  • The Department of Higher Education which is under HRD Ministry, will be holding 11 rounds of National Essay Competitions during the year. The essay topics will be based on one Fundamental Duty every month. 
  • This year marks the 70th year of adoption of the Indian Constitution. The Centre government, therefore, decided to run a Nagrik Kartavya Palan Abhiyan from 26 November 2019 to 26 November 2020, to create mass awareness about Fundamental Duties as enshrined in our Constitution. 
  • By doing this, it will give directions to the youth of the country to make them aware that rights will be automatically realised when we certainly follow our duties in a religious way. This principle will also help the students to channelise their talents and capabilities in the right path, which will help them realise their mission with ease.
