In response to a call of Games Village Residents' Welfare Society to observe Pollution Free Diwali this year, all the residents came out with a very positive response and decided to celebrate Diwali, 2016 "Pollution Free". In the residents' meeting held on October 26, the Diwali Festival Celebration Committee was formed headed by Manju Rani Deka, an energetic young Lady Officer of Assam Secretariat. As part of the celebration, a huge procession was taken out, on October 29, comprising school students in their school uniform along with Games Village residents holding play cards with catchy slogans appealing all the residents not to burst crackers and create pollution by any other means, in the name of Diwali. The slogans were prepared by the children themselves. A tree plantation drive was also organised through plantation of valuable fruit bearing trees by the residents within the campus.

Games and sports activities among the children will be conducted on October 30 from morning 10, and homage to the victims of serial bomb blast of  2008 will precede the lighting of lamp from 5 pm celebrating Diwali. The entire Games Village will be illuminated by earthen lamp lighted by all the residents jointly covering the common areas around the complex. Cultural program, games for the children and adults and also exchange of pleasantries with refreshment will continue at Bihu Ground of the Campus.
