Case Study

FINANCIALEXPRESS JUN-2018 Flagship programmes of the Narendra Modi government like Namami Gange, Digital India, Beti Bachao Beti Padhao and Pradhan Mantri Kaushal Vikas Yojana have made their way into NCERT textbooks for class 6 to 10. An analysis of the revised NCERT textbooks by The Indian Express shows that these additions have been made to the Geography, Science, Political Science, Economics and English books. These changes have been made as part of a revision exercise that the NCERT undertook for the first time since 2007.
