Constitution Quiz started; end date on 25 December 2019

Start date: 26 November 2019

End date: 25 December 2019, 8pm

On the occasion of the 70th anniversary year of the adoption of the Indian Constitution by the Constituent Assembly, the Government of India has decided to launch a year-long nationwide programme of activities starting from the 26th November, 2019 to 26th November, 2020 focussed on Citizens Duties. The year-long activities aim to sensitise the citizens towards their duties to the nation, society and fellow citizens to make them conscious of their duties and become active participants in the progress of the nation.

The Indian Constitution is the world’s longest written constitution which provides an excellent framework for governing the world’s largest democracy. It nurtures the aspirations of its citizens, and is a true living Constitution in as much as it gives the widest possible amplitude for the realization of both individual liberties and desires and at the same time enforces the need for a collective growth and development. As we celebrate seventy years of this remarkable document for social, political and economic development which has informed almost every aspect of Indian life, it is important to create awareness amongst the Indian citizens about the Constitution and its special features, particularly Fundamental Duties, as enshrined in the Constitution. A Quiz Competition is being organised by the Department of Justice, Ministry of Law & Justice, Government of India in collaboration with MyGov to make all the citizens aware of their duties and follow them.
