Mughals Move Out Of NCERT Textbooks


SRINAGAR: The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has announced significant revisions to the 12th class History book, with the removal of chapters related to the Mughal Empire. The changes will be applicable to all NCERT-affiliated schools across the country, and are expected to impact the way students learn about Indian history. The altered syllabus will no longer include chapters on ‘Kings and Chronicles; the Mughal Courts (C. 16th and 17th centuries)’ from the ‘Themes of Indian History-Part 2’ textbook for Class 12.

Additionally, the NCERT will also remove certain poems and paragraphs from Hindi textbooks. These changes have sparked a debate among educators and students alike, with many questioning the motives behind the revisions and their impact on the curriculum. Some argue that the move is an attempt to rewrite history, while others believe it is a necessary step to provide a more accurate representation of India’s past.

NCERT has announced that the changes made in the History and Hindi textbooks, as well as the 12th class Civics book, will come into effect from the ongoing academic session of 2023-2024. The revised Civics book will no longer include two chapters: ‘American Hegemony in World Politics’ and ‘The Cold War Era’.

The revisions to the NCERT textbooks have not been limited to Class 12th only. As part of the changes, two chapters, namely ‘Rise of Popular Movements’ and ‘Era of One Party Dominance’ have been removed from the Class 12th textbook ‘Indian Politics after Independence’.

Additionally, certain chapters from Class 10th and 11th textbooks have also been removed. For instance, in Class 10th book ‘Democratic Politics-2’, chapters on ‘Democracy and Diversity’, ‘Popular Struggles and Movements’, and ‘Challenges of Democracy’ have been removed. These changes will be implemented from the current academic session, i.e. 2023-2024.

The Class 11th textbook ‘Themes in World History’ will no longer include chapters on ‘Central Islamic Lands’, ‘Clash of Cultures’, and ‘Industrial Revolution’, as these have been removed from the curriculum. The authorities have confirmed that the revised syllabus and textbooks will be implemented in various schools from this year.
