In the view of Coronavirus pandemic, Central Government has invited suggestions from teachers, academics and educationists on reducing syllabus. The government is also mulling to reduce the number of teaching hours.

Union Human Resource Development Minister, Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ said that it has received a lot of requests from parents and teachers to reduce the syllabus.

Taking the social media, he said “In view of the current circumstances and after receiving a lot of requests from parents and teachers, we are contemplating the option of reduction in the syllabus and instructional hours for the coming academic year.”

Last month during webinar with parents, HRD minister hinted that the school syllabus for the upcoming academic session will be reduced. The minister said that the decision has been taken considering the pressure on students and the loss of important academic time due to the ongoing lockdown.

Earlier, Delhi government during a meeting with MHRD suggested that the entire syllabus should be reduced by at least 30 per cent.

HRD Minister during a recent interview also said that the academic session of schools would begin after August 15.
