NCERT has recently altered its Class 12 History textbook, removing chapters related to Mughal Empire. The updated curriculum will be implemented in all of the nation's schools from the upcoming session, 2023-24.

NCERT Updated Class 12 History Syllabus, Removes Chapters On ‘Mughal Empire’

In the history textbook known as "Themes of Indian History-Part 2," the chapters that dealt with "Kings and Chronicles; the Mughal Courts (C. 16th and 17th centuries)" have been eliminated as of the Class 12 level.

NCERT plans to do the same thing with several poems and paragraphs in the Hindi textbooks as well.

According to the NCERT, all of the modifications that were made will be put into effect beginning with the current academic session, which is 2023-2024.

In addition to the textbooks for History and Hindi, the Civics book for the 12th class has also been altered. The book no longer contains the chapters "American Hegemony in International Politics" and "The Cold War Period," both of which had previously been included.

In continuation of the alterations, the textbook for the twelfth grade, titled "Indian Politics after Independence," was updated by removing two chapters. These chapters were titled "Rise of Popular Movements" and "Period of One Party Domination."

The textbooks used in classes 10th and 11th have also been updated. For example, the chapters titled "Democracy and Diversity," "Popular Struggles and Movements," and "Challenges of Democracy" have all been removed from the book titled "Democratic Politics-2," which is used in class 10th.

The textbook for class 11 called "Themes in Global History" was recently updated, and several chapters, including "Central Islamic Countries," "Clash of Cultures," and "Industrial Revolution," have been removed.

Senior officials have stated, in confirmation of these changes, that the new curriculum and textbooks have been revised as of this year and are currently being implemented in a number of different schools.
