AGARTALA, Dec 30 - The Tripura Council of Ministers has okayed a proposal to introduce NCERT curriculum in all the State Government and government-aided schools in the State from next academic session beginning April, 2019.

The Education department has already initiated a process to introduce NCERT curriculum at the school level to take the State�s education system to the national level.

�The Cabinet has approved the proposal to introduce NCERT syllabus in the all the government and government-aided schools from CBSE�s new session beginning April�, said Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath.

While speaking to the media here Thursday, the Minister said the department has already procured over two lakh new books and 64,000 books are on way to the State.

However, the Cabinet has asked the department to �study further� if school timing could be changed. Currently, all the government and government-aided schools have two shifts � morning and noon.

Nath said the government has decided to bring an Ordinance to constitute a State level Higher Education Board in accordance with the directives of Ministry of Human Resource Development. �If the Board is not put in place, then HRD Ministry may curtail outlay under Rashtriya Ucchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA). That�s why the government wants to constitute a Board as early as possible�, he said.
