The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) will review all its books as they were created over a decade ago and need to be updated, council director Hrushikesh Senapaty said. The books were created in 2007.
In an exclusive conversation with TOI, Senapaty said textbooks were not being revised and NCERT was only reviewing the books in a systematic way. Distinguishing between the two, he said, “Revision of books and curriculum framework is a policy decision which will be taken at the level of the HRD ministry, and it is a massive task. What we are doing right now is reviewing the books, which is to plug the gaps.
