NCERT Textbooks – Good news to schools, Sept. 8 is the last date to place orders for 2019-20 session…
Minister of State for Human Resource Development launched NCERT web portal that would supply textbooks to schools and individuals from the next academic year. This move will ensure better distribution of books. Now schools can log on till Sept. 8 to place orders for 2019-20 sessions.
The idea behind NCERT Textbooks online order booking was to ensure better distribution of textbooks and address concerns, among parents and schools regarding the unavailability of NCERT textbooks. Schools can track books delivery.
NCERT used to supply books through our empanelled vendors earlier. Now, NCERT will have a way to ensure that the book reaches the school or the student. The recipient can track online delivery.
The schools will be able to log on to the NCERT books portal, by entering their respective Boards’ affiliation numbers and other details, till September 8, 2017, for placing their orders for the session 2018-19. NCERT Textbooks online web portal can be accessed at www.ncertbooks.ncert.gov.in.
The payment can be made just before the supply. The NCERT books portal will also be open for individual buyers soon.
Books produced by private publications are more expensive and the NCERT wants to ensure that its more affordable books are available for all. The results of Kendriya Vidyalayas and Navodaya Vidyalayas are better than private schools in general. This shows that NCERT books are better.
