19 member committee will prepare new books of NCERT, Sudha Murthy and Shankar Mahadevan will also make syllabus till 12th


NSTC has been formed to prepare new books for class 3rd to 12th. Apart from this, the committee will also make amendments in the books of class 1 to 2.

The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has constituted a new committee to finalize the syllabus and textbooks for classes 3 to 12. A 19-member high-powered committee, named the National Curriculum and Teaching Learning Material Committee (NSTC). It will be headed by Mahesh Chandra Pant, Chancellor of the National Institute of Educational Planning and Administration (NIEPA).

The committee will also include Infosys Foundation Chairperson Sudha Murthy, Economic Advisory Council to the Prime Minister (EAC-PM) Bibek Debroy, EAC-PM Sanjeev Sanyal, RSS ideologue Chamu Krishna Shastri and music composer Shankar Mahadevan. Whereas, whenever required, NSTC will be free to invite other experts for advice, consultation and support.

NSTC will be empowered to develop teaching and learning materials along with school curriculum for classes 3 to 12. It will also work on suitably revising the existing textbooks of classes 1 and 2 to ensure smooth transition to NCF. As per media reports, the textbooks and other learning materials developed and finalized by NSTC will be published and distributed by NCERT.

The National Curriculum Framework for School Education (NCF-SE), which specifies the general framework for curriculum revision in schools, as per the National Education Policy 2020, was sent to Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan on July 28.

To assist the NSCT in its functioning, the NCERT has also set up a National Oversight Committee (NOC), headed by Jagbir Singh, Chancellor, Central University of Punjab.
