Action against schools for using Non NCERT Books

The government has been making it mandatory in schools across the country to use NCERT books only. Various school boards in India have been sending out notices to schools in their state to strictly follow NCERT books. All private and government schools have been instructed to follow the books and syllabus as prescribed by NCERT.

It was observed during a survey by the UP government that many schools were found not to be complying by the government directives and recommending costly books of private publishers. This was non compliance to government orders and was also causing financial pressure on parents.

The education department has given written orders stating that the schools have to immediately stop this practice else their licenses will be cancelled.

The state government has also decided to form a team headed by nodal officers to check that the schools comply with the requirement.

Incase the schools still choose to suggest books by private publishers for extra practise for students, it has been ordered that the price of the book should not be more than the price of NCERT book.

Schools have also told to display the list of books along with prices which the schools has suggested the students to use in addition to NCERT books.

Parents have also been advised to write to the department incase they find that the schools are forcing the students to buy costly books of private publishers.
