According to Education Ministry officials, new National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) textbooks updated in accordance with the new National Education Policy (NEP) are likely to be implemented in schools starting with the 2024–25 academic year. The National Curriculum Framework (NCF) will be followed in developing the textbooks.All NCERT developed in accordance with the updated NCF will also be available digitally.
As per a senior MoE official, an institutional framework will be created to ensure that the textbooks are updated on a regular basis because they shouldn't be "static."
A "5+3+3+4" curriculum pedagogical structure is what the NEP 2020 envisions. Children will spend five years in the foundational level, three years each in the preparatory and middle stages, and four years in the secondary stage under the new educational system defined in NEP 2020.
By designating former Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO) Chairman K Kasturirangan as the chairman of a 12-member steering committee tasked with creating a new National Curriculum Framework (NCF) in 2020, the Center has begun the process of updating school textbooks
NCF for Early Childhood Care and Education (NCFECCE), NCF for School Education (NCFSE), NCF for Teacher Education (NCFTE), and NCF for Adult Education (NCFAE)are the four NCFs currently being created
The senior official went into detail about the procedure, stating that all states and the Union Territories had first prepared their State Curriculum Frameworks (SCFs), which had been developed after district-level consultations, a mobile app survey, and the development of position papers by state focus groups in 25 areas or themes identified in the NEP 2020, including ECCE, Teacher Education, and Adult Education.
The Ministry of Education launched the NCF for the foundational stage (FS) last year, and in accordance with the curriculum framework, the NCERT has created the learning-teaching material (LTM).
