The interim report on the current National Curriculum Framework (NCF) for School Education, which is being updated after 15 years, will be submitted by December and the new curriculum is expected to be ready by March next year, according to the Ministry of Education. 

"The latest NCF for school education has been introduced. NCERT is expected to make changes to the textbooks following the new NCF. Subject experts will initiate this school education process and submit an interim report by December 2020. The new NCF is scheduled to be ready by March 2021," said the Ministry of Human Rights in a statement. The Ministry instructed the National Council for Educational Research and Training ( NCERT) to ensure, while redesigning textbooks, that they contain nothing but the core content.

To date, the NCF has been updated four times — in 1975, 1988, 2000, and 2005. The proposed revision will be a fifth of the framework. 

"The cognitive load of the textbooks is too high, too. Additional fields, such as creative thinking, life skills, Indian ethos, art, and integration, need to be integrated. NCERT will also work well in advance on the layout and design of the new textbooks, although the new textbooks must be published based on the existing NCF. "Under Atma Nirbhar Bharat, for PM E-Vidya, NCERT is also expected to prepare Class I – XII material for SWAYAM PRABHA channels (1 Class 1 channel) and launch channels by August of this year," the Ministry said. The revision of the curriculum framework will be in line with the implementation of the review reforms, such as the uniform assessment and evaluation system under the proposed National Assessment Centre, as proposed in the New Education Policy Draft.
