By deleting the chapters on the Mughal kingdom, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) revised its books, including the history textbook for students in grade 12. All nationwide schools that use NCERT will have to adapt to the shift. The history textbook “Themes of Indian History-Part 2” has passages on “Kings and Chronicles; the Mughal Courts (C. 16th and 17th centuries)” removed for Class 12.
Similar to this, NCERT will also delete a few passages and songs from the Hindi textbooks. According to NCERT, all changes will be put into effect starting with the 2023–2024 school year.
Other changes made by NCERT:
The 12th semester Civics textbook has also been revised, along with the history and Hindi texts. The book no longer contains the two chapters headed “The Cold War Era” and “American Hegemony in World Politics.”
Two parts from the Class 12th textbook “Indian Politics after Independence,” titled “Rise of Popular Movements” and “Era of One Party Dominance,” have also been eliminated.
Chapters on “Democracy and Diversity” and other changes have been made in the texts for classes 10 and 11. The chapters “Central Islamic Lands,” “Clash of Cultures,” and “Industrial Revolution” from the class 11 history textbook “Themes in World History” as well as “Popular Struggles and Movements” and “Challenges of Democracy” from the class 10 book “Democratic Politics-2” have been removed.
UP board to also follow similar pattern of syllabus changes:
According to recent revisions to the NCERT curriculum. The Uttar Pradesh Madhyamik Shiksha Parishad (UPMSP) has stated that it will update the curriculum for classes 10th, 11th, and 12.
