Government is contemplating the option of reduction in the syllabus and instructional hours for the coming academic year.

Human Resources Development Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank has said that government has received a lot of requests from parents and teachers in view of the current circumstances due to the pandemic.

In a tweet, Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank appealed to all teachers, academicians and educationists to share their point of view on the matter using hashtag #SyllabusForStudents2020 on either his or Ministry of Human Resources Development’s Twitter and Facebook page so that they can take them into consideration while making a decision.
