As per the National Curriculum Framework 2005, syllabi for all classes are being changed in phases. While classes 1, 3, 6, 9 and 10 syllabi were changed for the academic year 2006-07, syllabi for classes 2, 4, 7, 10, 12 are being changed for 2007-08.NCERT doesn’t supply books directly to the 6,810 CBSE schools in India and abroad. We have 235 agents for distribution and there are four Regional Production and Distribution Centres (RPDCs) in Bangalore, Guwahati, Ahmedabad and Kolkata.an online version of the changed syllabus is available, printing page after page from the Net is a cumbersome exercise, say teachers. Furthermore, the online version has no background on the changed topics. Also the questions are in the form of an essay, unlike the CBSE pattern of point-to-point answers.
