Vigilance Awareness Week - Unity Day

The Central Vigilance Commission observes the Vigilance Awareness Week every year during the week in which birthday of Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel (31st October) falls. October 31 is also observed as 'Unity Day' (Rashtriya Ekta Diwas). 

The official statement for 'Rashtriya Ekta Diwas' by the Home Ministry of India cites that the National Unity Day "will provide an opportunity to re-affirm the inherent strength and resilience of our nation to withstand the actual and potential threats to the unity, integrity and security of our country."
National Unity Day celebrates the birthday of Patel because, during his term as Home Minister of India, he is credited for the integration of over 550 independent princely states into India from 1947–49 by Independence Act (1947). He is known as the "Bismarck[a] of India".

For inculcating greater awareness on vigilance in public life, school is conducting different activities reflecting 'Integrity - A Way of Life' between October 30, 2019 & November 02, 2019.
