New Curriculum For New Tripura: Cabinet Gives Nod To NCERT Books In All State Run And Aided SchoolsTripura Chief Minister Biplab Kumar Deb (@BjpBiplab/Twitter)

Biplab Kumar Deb-headed Tripura Cabinet has reportedly given its nod to introduce the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) syllabus in all state-run and aided schools from the next academic session, beginning April 2019, reports India Today.

The process to introduce the NCERT syllabus to replace the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) syllabus is under operation by the Department of Education.

Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath was quoted as saying by India Today. "The change in curriculum will take the state's education system to the national level," said Nath. He has also informed that almost 2 lakh new NCERT books were procured by the department.

The BJP-Indigenous People's Front of Tripura (IPFT) government had set up an expert committee for reviewing school syllabus after coming into power. The panel had recommended the adoption of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) curriculum in schools run by the state.

Nath said that the government has decided to bring an ordinance to constitute a state-level higher education board in accordance with the directives of the Ministry of Human Resource Development.

"The MHRD may curtail outlay under the Rashtriya Uchchatar Shiksha Abhiyan (RUSA) if the board is not put in place," he said.
