AGARTALA, May 31, 2018 (PTI): The BJP-IPFT government in Tripura has decided to adopt NCERT curriculum for schools in the state instead of the State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT) prescribed curriculum, Education Minister Ratan Lal Nath said here on Wednesday.
Tripura Board of Secondary Education (TBSE) is following the SCERT books at the school level, it has not yielded desire results so far prompting the state to switch over to NCERT curriculum in order to boost the states education system, Nath said.
“It is more likely that CBSE pattern syllabus and tabulation system will be followed at the school level for better outputs,” he said.
“A six-member expert committee headed by former Vice Chancellor of Tripura Central University Prof Arunoday Saha has been constituted to prepare a roadmap for adopting NCERT curriculum. Once the committee submits its finding, the government will take an appropriate decision,” Nath said.
