Kerala compiles deleted NCERT portions in new textbooks: Minister Sivankutty

by The Technical Blogs


The Kerala government on Monday said that it was the only state in the country to compile all the portions removed by the NCERT from school textbooks and create a new textbook for students to study and appear for exams.

State General Education Minister V Sivankutty said the government took such a stand in accordance with Kerala’s exemplary educational background.

He said this in response to a query in the state assembly from the UDF opposition with regard to the implementation of the National Education Policy 2023.

Sivankutty said the policy has not been completely accepted in the country as Tamil Nadu has rejected it in its entirety and Karnataka has only agreed to implement some portions of it.

Moreover, the National Council of Educational Research and Training has deleted a lot of things — like the assassination of Mahatma Gandhi and the alleged role of RSS in it, portions of the Mughal rule and empire in India, parts of the Indian freedom struggle and some communal riots — from textbooks for classes 11 and 12, the minister claimed.

”So, we compiled all the deleted portions and created a new textbook. It is not a mere textbook, but a syllabus which students can study and take exams on,” he said.

The supplementary textbooks were released by Kerala Chief Minister Pinarayi Vijayan in August this year.
