CBSE NCERT Solution > CBSE News
CBSE schools will have to use NCERT textbooks from the 2017-18 academic sessions. The decision was taken at a meeting chaired by the Human Resource Development Minister, Sri. Prakash Javadekar. The move to make National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) study materials mandatory for all Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) schools across the country is expected to standardize the curriculum across schools in the country. The move comes at a time when many parents were complaining that they are forced to purchase textbooks from private publishers.
It is a welcome relief for millions of parents forced by schools to purchase textbooks from private publishers that are much costlier than the NCERT books. NCERT has been directed to make all the textbooks available, in adequate numbers, through its 680 empanelled distribution vendors across the country by the last week of March. All the CBSE schools will have to raise their demand online on CBSE's website by February 22, 2017. A CBSE official said that based on the mandatory disclosure of its schools, the board has an accurate estimate of the quantum of NCERT textbooks necessary for Classes 1-12 for any academic session.
