CBSE to include study material on northeast: Irani
The CBSE curriculum committee will include sufficient material related to the northeast region to create awareness, HRD Minister Smriti Irani said Wednesday.
"The curriculum committee of the CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) has decided to give due preference for inclusion of precise and sufficient material to the northeast region in CBSE curriculum for students' awareness about the region," Human Resource Development Minister Irani said in a written reply in the Lok Sabha.
The step follows the demand from people of northeast living in different cities to include material about northeast in NCERT books.
