History text books developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT)
Inclusion of Indian heroes in textbooks
The History text books of various classes, developed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT), based on National Curriculum Framework (2005), have already included the achievements of Indian heroes of our past. In these books, the contributions of both men and women have been reflected in the content as well as in the visuals.
NCERT textbooks of History have never portrayed Indian heroes in a negative manner.
In the present reprint version of History textbooks, the role and contributions of some more personalities in India’s struggle for freedom and the social reform movements have been added.
