Good news for private publishers in K-12 segment!


As a respite for schools and private publishers, Rajya Sabha has informed that the CBSE has not mandated schools to prescribe only NCERT textbooks. “The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has not issued any advisory/directive to schools affiliated to it to compulsorily prescribe textbook published by NCERT,” said Upendra Kushwaha, Minister of State for HRD, in a written response to a question. He also informed that NCERT has conducted a review of all its textbooks and rectified factual errors, if any, besides updating data.
