    CBSE to Have Question Banks of Previous Year Papers for Classes 9 to 12

    NCERT’s this decision to delete a part of the Class 9 History textbook is a part of the curriculum rationalisation programme initiated after Human Resource Development (HRD) Minister Prakash Javadekar’s proposal to cut down the syllabus and reduce the burden on students. Last year, he had requested the NCERT to reduce syllabus for all classes saying that "There is a huge load of books and information, and students have no time. There is no time for physical education, value education and life skills.”

    Although Javadekar’s recommendation to NCERT was to cut curriculum by half across all subjects, but sources from NCERT said that the content in Social Science textbooks has been reduced by almost 20 per cent, whereas in Mathematics and Sciences, minimum reduction has been done.
