The National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) has announced that the new syllabus textbooks for Classes 3 and 6 will be released in April and May, respectively. This announcement reassures parents and students, urging them to remain patient during the transition. The move follows directives from the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) last week, instructing all affiliated schools to adopt the new syllabi and textbooks for these classes’ 2024-25 academic session.

NCERT has made significant strides in ensuring the timely availability of school textbooks, with approximately 33 lakh books for Classes 1, 2, 7, 8, 10, and 12 already printed and distributed to bookstores. Textbooks for Classes 3, 4, 5, 9, and 11 are expected to hit the shelves this month, while those for Class 6 are slated for a May release. The decision to update the syllabi for Classes 3 and 6 aligns with the National Curriculum Framework for School Education (NCFSE), marking pivotal stages in students’ educational journeys—preparatory and middle stages, respectively.

To facilitate a smooth transition to the new syllabus, NCERT has developed specific programs and guidelines for schools under the CBSE, Kendriya Vidyalaya Sangathan (KVS), and Navodaya Vidyalaya Samiti (NVS) networks. A “bridge programme” for Class 6 and “brief guidelines” for Class 3 have been prepared, aimed at helping students and educators adjust to the updated curriculum seamlessly. This initiative reflects NCERT’s commitment to enhancing the quality of school education in line with contemporary educational standards.
