No CBSE-i curriculum in Schools from the session 2017-2018

The CBSE-i curriculum was initiated as a pilot project in the session 2010-11. In the course of time, several issues relating to operational difficulties, including availability of quality reading material of global standard, were noticed . In the light of this, the matter of continuity of CBSE-i curriculum as pilot project was taken up for a detailed discussion in the meeting of the Curriculum Committee held in December 2016. Subsequently, the decision of the Curriculum Committee was also discussed in the meeting of the Governing Body of the Board. It was resolved to have a comprehensive review of the pilot project of CBSE-i curriculum by a Government Consultancy Organisation. This being the position, the schools presently offering CBSE-i curriculum (or intending to offer the CBSE-i curriculum from the session 2017-18 ) may carefully note the following decision for strict compliance:
