The wave of demonetization hit the country last year and brought many transformations in India. It not only brought out the black money hidden in the country but also helped the nation to go digitalized. The ban of Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 notes was a curse to some and a boon to many. Since the Rs 500 and Rs 1,000 currency were banned, the new Rs 500 and Rs 2,000 currency notes were introduced.
As this demonetization campaign was an historic event for the country, the government has decided to include this in the school textbooks. The government decided to take a look at the text books and have considered updating them. The National Council of Education Research and Training department (NCERT) has come up with this decision. The National Council of Education Research and Training is an organization responsible for assistance and giving advises to the government on the education in the school. This department has now started a review in all the government school.
The officials of the National Council of Education Research and Training stated that updating the content of the school textbooks has been a tough job since last few years. The officials also confirmed that they faced issue for states such as Rajasthan, Haryana, Gujarat, and Maharashtra while changing the pattern of the text books.
When asked about this decision, the officials of the National Council of Education Research and Training said, “We have come to decision of including the demonetization event in the textbooks of schools. This decision has been supported by the Prime Minister of India Narendra Modi as well. When we presented our idea of making this movement as a part of the syllabus, Narendra Modi was pleased with us. For now, we are considering to include this part for Class X. This will be the right age for the children to learn about these kinds of stuff.”
Well, the decision of demonetization movement was indeed a great thing and so is this one. As for now, be ready for witnessing the chapter of demonetization in the school text books.
