NCERT Syllabus To Be Halved | Here’s Why 

The HRD Ministry has decided to cut the National Council of Educational Research and Training syllabus for the students to half. This is being done so that the overall development of the child is being focused upon. It has been felt that the syllabus is ‘cramped’ and therefore, the need to cut down the NCERT syllabus by 50 per cent has been felt.

In lieu of the same, the government had received an overwhelming feedback from the stakeholders when the idea of rationalizing the syllabus of the school education was proposed to them which could be done by cutting the increasing burden of theNational Council of Educational Research and Training syllabus. In order to let the students make use of their cognitive as well as the analytical abilities, the decision of the reduction in the NCERT Syllabus has been taken by the HRD Ministry.
