As reported earlier NCERT is in the process of revising the NCERT textbooks for all classes. The revised textbooks are expected to be available for the 2018-2019 sessions which is about to start little earlier this year.
That’s definitely a good step as NCERT has decided to review the books every year and keep the books updated based on the learning capabilities of students.
Due to the regular revisions there is huge waste of NCERT books every year, this year too almost books worth Rs 30 crores are expected to go waste as they wont be applicable any more.
NCERT is saying that the revisions which they are doing currently for books for 2018-2019 is one of the biggest revision they have done in many years and this time their focus is to reduce the number of chapters, make the books thinner and make study material and content more relevant for students.
The books along with online mode will also be printed and sent to various schools and dealers. Its also important to note that NCERT books are slowly getting implemented in entire India as most of the state boards are taking up NCERT based books to make their students at par with all India students. Gujarat board has been very proactive as the books are getting translated into local language too so that they can be implemented from 2018-2019 onwards
