On March 5, 2018 the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) invited suggestions from the public on changes that they want done in the NCERT curriculum for classes I-XII.
“The MHRD has invited suggestions on rationalising curriculum for class I to XII to ensure all-round development of students,” a government statement said.
The ministry is seeking to halve the school syllabus prescribed by the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) and CBSE in schools, the HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar said last month.
The suggestions can be made at the link http://188.8.131.52/DIGI between March 5 (Monday) and April 6.
“We need to develop the system where students get time for each of this and can progress in the areas which he or she likes most, therefore there is continuous demand of rationalisation of syllabus which many people believe is too heavy and inappropriate for age,” as the statement mentioned Javadekar.
