PARENTS ARE FORCED TO BUY PRIVATE PUBLICATION BOOKS AT 300-600% HIGHER PRICES THAN NCERT BOOKS, story of most of the CBSE schools throughout the country.

Even though Ministry has made it compulsory for all CBSE schools to use only NCERT books, schools are not using it and forcing parents to buy private publication books. All the parents are suffering as schools have made a trend of compulsion in everything and they have left parents with no options than saliently buying the books whatever they give.

Ministry has also directed NCERT to make all the textbooks available, in adequate numbers, through its 680 empanelled distribution vendors across the country by the last week of March, so that the April deadline for the 2017-18 academic session can be met and also asked all the CBSE schools to raise their demand online on CBSE's website by February 22, 2017.

But the school businessman's  do not care of it and already made us buy private books for the 2017-18 academic year. Books for class III costed me Rs. 5000/- (Pearson Publication) for 20 books having average quality and on average 60-80 pages per book. I cant even give it a thought that how come a 60 page normal book can be sold for Rs. 250/-. Hardly the school would have purchased it for Rs. 1000-1200/-. Think how schools are making fool out of parents as they know we cant do anything.

Please join my petition asking Ministry of Human Resource Development to enforce all CBSE schools to use NCERT books only from this academic year itself as they were notified much before ( and if not make a standardization in the book prices class wise so that it should not touch the sky. Also take legal actions against the schools which are reported not following the rule.
