CBSE yet to print Class 10 english textbooks

By: Admin 15 May, 2017

Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has not completed printing of textbooks for the new academic session even though it has been almost 45 days since the session started. CBSE in February-March 2017 created a link to raise indents for NCERT books on being asked by HRD Ministry, but has apparently "failed" to respond to its own responsibilities.

 

Highlights
  • CBSE is yet to complete the printing of the English literature textbook for class 10th.

  • Even though it has been 45 days since the session started, NCERT textbooks have not reached the students.

  • Reason for the delay is the printing had to be stopped twice as there were errors in the content.

  • Now there will be 2 sets of books, one with a chapter that has been deleted from the syllabus and one without.

 

According to CBSE sources the board is yet to complete the printing of the English literature textbook for class X. On the reason for the delay, a senior CBSE official said: "Printing was ordered on time. However, it had to be stopped in the first half of April as there were errors in the books. Changes were made in close to 140 pages of the book."

 

The printing had to be stopped for the second time post the publication of close to 60,000 books, making the delay even longer. "As per the curriculum a chapter of the book had to be withdrawn. For which the printing was stopped and finally it is getting printed now," said the official. Therefore, there will be two sets of books of English literature which will be in circulation — one with the chapter deleted and the other with the chapter. The print run for the book, according to sources, is closed to 5 lakh copies.
