CBSE has decided on the syllabus of class 10th, 11th and 12th for the academic session 2022-23
CBSE has removed the Central Islamic Lands issue from the class XI history book and Mughal Empire from the class XII book.
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has decided on the syllabus for the students of classes 10th, 11th, and 12th for the academic session 2022-23. CBSE has removed the Central Islamic Lands issue from the class XI history book and Mughal Empire from the class XII book.
CBSE has introduced the Non-Aligned Movement, the Cold War era, the rise of the Islamic Empire in Afro-Asian regions, the history of Mughal courts, and industrial sciences from the History and Political Science syllabus for Classes 11 and 12. The chapters related to the revolution have been removed.
Along with this, the translated excerpt of two Urdu poems of Faiz Ahmed Faiz from the section 'Religion, Communalism, and Politics-Communalism Secular State' has also been excluded this year.
Now, these chapters will not be taught in the new academic session. Similarly, the Mughal Empire was removed from the ninth chapter of the 12th Indian History Part II. In this lesson, the students were taught about the history of the Mughals, Mughal rule, the Mughal court, Akbarnama, and Baburnama. This year new board system has been implemented across the country at the same time.
Asked about the rationale for deleting subjects or chapters, the officials said the change is part of the rationalization of the curriculum and is in line with the recommendations of the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT).
As per last year's syllabus description, the chapter 'Central Islamic Lands' dropped this year from the Class 11 history syllabus talks about the rise of the Islamic empire in the Afro-Asian region and its impact on the economy and society.
Similarly, the chapter titled 'The Mughal Court: Reconstructing Histories through Chronicles' in the Class 12 History syllabus explores the history of the Mughal courts in relation to the reconstruction of the social, religious and cultural history of the Mughals.
The board's change is being linked to a new education policy, which focuses on promoting the Indian education system. Apart from this, curriculum and related books were made available in 117 schools in the district.
The poem by Faiz Ahmed Faiz, given as an example on the subject of caste, religion, and gender in Chapter IV, has been omitted from the Class 10 textbook as per the pattern prescribed by CBSE. The chapter "Central Islamic Land" has been omitted from the Class XI textbook titled Some Subjects of World History. In this case, the students were introduced to the rise and development of Islam, and the spread of Islam from the seventh to the twelfth centuries.
Industrial Revolution, Colonial City, and Partition also removed
The Board has removed the Evolution and Evolution of Man on Earth in the Paleolithic, Industrial Revolution syllabus from the class XI book. It included the causes and effects of the Industrial Revolution of England, how imperialism was promoted, etc. Similarly, there is no change in part one of the 12th book. Part two to ninth chapter Mughal Empire and part three to 12th chapter British era Bombay, Calcutta, and Madras established in the colonial city and 14th chapter cause and effect of Partition India have been removed.
The board has removed some chapters from the history book of classes XI and XII. These include many chapters like the Mughal Empire, Islamic Land, and Industrial Revolution. This information has been given to the students. Reading work is going on. The courses are impressive and reflect Indian history.
