New Delhi: In a function, on Saturday, HRD minister Smriti Irani said that all CBSE books will be made available online free of cost. This she said was an extension of the government’s good governance doctrine.

This action follows a previous move made to make all NCERT textbooks available for free online and also downloadable through a mobile application.

“We made NCERT books available online for free through e-books and mobile applications a month-and-a-half ago. We will similarly make CBSE books available online along with additional learning material and videos as part of our good governance efforts,” Irani said at a function at a Kendriya Vidyalaya here.

Moreover, the online textbooks will be in readable formats akin to the popular e-book readers like Amazon Kindle.

The HRD minister also announced that her ministry will organise baal sabhas (children’s conventions) for closer interaction between professionals from various fields.

“These conventions will feature interactions between children and professionals from various fields to help the former grow into good human beings,” she said.

She also announced the launching two services to aid the parents to keep track of their children’s performance. The ‘Shaala Darpan’ service will reflect the students’ attendance, timetable and marks in examinations; while the ‘Saransh’ service will allow parents to compare subject-wise outcomes of their wards with others at the district, state and national levels.
