The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has been directed by the MHRD to abide by the order of the Madras High Court to using NCERT textbooks in its affiliated schools.
The High Court said earlier, “This court has every reason to believe that there is a hidden agenda between CBSE officials and private book publishers. That’s the reason why even a direction to use the NCERT books alone is being appealed by the CBSE. The CBSE is bound to follow the NCERT syllabus, which has been prescribed by experts.”
The MHRD had already instructed the board to follow the HC order of making the NCERT syllabus and books mandatory in schools. “This has been communicated to the board. NCERT is publishing books in bulk and they have an excellent online system,”
