‘Mandate group’ to help rework syllabus as per NEP

The committee to revise the National Curriculum Framework (NCF) has decided to set up a “mandate group” to issue guidelines on the ways to introduce various elements of the new education policy, ranging from modern technological skills to ancient Indian knowledge systems, in the school textbooks.

It is learnt that the decision to set up the six-member group was taken by the 12-member National Steering Committee, headed by former ISRO chief K Kasturirangan, on December 9.

Of the six members in the proposed mandate group, three will be members of the steering committee, while the remaining three will be external domain experts. “The mandate group, which will essentially act as a sub-group of the national steering committee, will lay down guidelines, indicating the processes and timelines for the NCF as well as the State Curriculum Frameworks (SCFs),” a senior Union government official said on the condition of anonymity.
