Textbooks published by NCERT
The Central Board of Secondary Education has not issued any advisory / directive to schools affiliated to it to compulsory prescribe text book published by National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).
NCERT publishes quality textbooks. NCERT develops all its textbooks by constituting subject-wise author teams consisting of subjects experts, scholars, school teachers and NCERT’s faculty members. These teams held workshops and meetings and discuss every aspect of content to be included in the textbook in detail. These textbooks are also approved by the National Monitoring Committee set up by the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD).
NCERT has undertaken a review of all of its textbooks which were developed as a follow up of the National Curriculum Framework, 2005. The review broadly pertained to rectification of factual errors, if any, and updation of data.
NCERT received two recommendations, one agency was found eligible for the state of Maharashtra and the second for the States of Chhattisgarh and Madhya Pradesh. Accordingly, these agencies have been empanelled for distribution of books in the aforementioned States. NCERT decides on merit.
