Thiruvananthapuram: The Kerala government is unlikely to remove the portions about the Mughal Empire and Gujarat riots from the NCERT textbooks of higher secondary courses.

The National Council of Educational Research and Training had decided to remove several portions as part of its "syllabus rationalisation" exercise in June 2022. It claimed the move was to “unburden” the students.

However, the Kerala State Council of Educational Research and Training after reviewing the decision of the NCERT, has told the state government that there is no need to implement it in Kerala.

The state had alleged politics behind the decision of NCERT in removing the said portions.

The education department will discuss the matter and decide on the report of the SCERT. State council is of the opinion that the state can decide on what the students shall study and the decision of NCERT is not binding on the state.
