New Delhi, August 10: NCERT textbooks have demand across India. Now it is easy for students to avail those books. Human Resource Development Ministry has launched a Web portal for the supply of textbooks to schools and individuals. Students and parents can now order online the books.
Though right now, the portal is available for schools, it will be available for individual buyers very soon. The books will be delivered at their doorsteps with nominal postal charges.
Even the textbooks can also be downloaded, free of cost, from the NCERT’s website. One can access the digital versions of NCERT’s textbook by logging onto ‘epathshala’ or through mobile applications.
The textbooks will also continue to be sold at the Retail Sales Counters located at the NCERT’s headquarters in Delhi; at its Regional Institutes of Education (RIEs) Ajmer, Bhopal Bhubaneswar, Shillong, and Mysuru; and at its Regional Production-cum-Distribution Centres (RPDCs) based in Ahmedabad, Kolkata, Guwahati, and Bengaluru.
