Home Delivery of NCERT books

In a country like India with such a huge population and a large number of students, the availability of course books at the right time is a very big challenge. Due to this problem students and schools are left with no option other than buying books from private publishers, the problem with books from private publishers is that they are very expensive and also very lengthy. While NCERT books are written by qualified and authorized writers to provide perfect and balanced education to the children.

To evade this problem, NCERT (National Research Council of Educational Research and Training) has launched a website that can be used to order NCERT published books. The books can be ordered through this online portal by the students as well as by schools and will be delivered at their doorstep through postal services. The website www. ncertbooks .ncert .gov .in can be used to place orders from September 8 for the session 2018-19. Buyers will only have to make the payment at the time of the delivery; no payment will be needed at the time of placing an order.

In the words of a senior NCERT official, “The portal will ensure better distribution of NCERT books across the country and will also address the apprehensions of schools and parents about their availability”.

Not only students but schools will also be provided by a service of ordering books or procuring them from their nearest NCERT vendors or from Production cum distribution centers (RPDCs) of NCERT in Ahmadabad, Kolkata, Guwahati, and Bangalore

Individuals and students will be able to get their course book at their doorstep just by paying some nominal extra postal charges.

CBSE has directed over 19,000 affiliated schools to order books from the online portal so that CBSE can mobilize their inventory in a more rational way and can make books easily available to schools and students to ensure that no obstacle appears in the path of education.
