Second Edition of Project Veer Gatha: The Gallantry Awards have been instituted by the Government of India (GoI) to honor the acts of bravery and sacrifice of officers/personnel of the Armed Forces, other legally constituted forces, and civilians. These gallantry awards are announced twice a year on the occasion of the national festival “Republic Day and Independence Day“.
In order to disseminate the details of the acts of bravery and the life stories of these Bravehearts among the students, it is proposed by the Ministry of Defense (MoD) to motivate the school students to take up projects/activities based on gallantry awards winners. Accordingly, the first edition of Project Veer Gatha was conducted from August 2021 to January 2022 for schools affiliated with CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) and State Boards.

MoD in coordination with MoE has now decided to launch the second edition of Project Veergatha which is proposed to conclude with a prize distribution ceremony in January 2023.
