PSEB to no longer print textbooks

Govt gives work to SCERT after delay in publishing
Tribune News Service
Chandigarh, July 1
As the Punjab School Education Board (PSEB) has failed to print and distribute a large number of school textbooks in time this year, the state, taking an unprecedented step, has decided to get the books published from the State Council of Education and Research Training (SCERT).
The PSEB has thus been divested of its exclusive right to publish textbooks for the first time since its establishment in 1969.
The move, however, is in violation of the Punjab School Education Board Act, 1969, which states that the board will “arrange for the preparation, writing, compilation, printing and sale of textbooks”.
Sukhdev Singh Kahlon, Director, SCERT, in a letter to the Secretary, PSEB, said: “As per oral orders of the Principal Secretary, Education, all textbooks meant for classes I to XII are to be published by the SCERT. In a meeting held with the Director General School Education (DGSE) in this regard, he (DGSE) has directed that expenditure details, right from the preparation of books up to their distribution, should be sought from the publication cell of the PSEB.”
The SCERT has also asked the PSEB to provide details of the total number of titles to be published in 2017-18 and size and sample of the paper used to print books.
Krishan Kumar, Principal Secretary, Education, said: “It is the government’s decision to pass on the responsibility to the SCERT. There is nothing illogical about it. At the national level, the CBSE and the ICSE only conduct exams, while the National Council of Education and Research Training (NCERT) publishes books. In several states, the SCERTs are already preparing and publishing school textbooks. So why can’t we adopt the same system in Punjab?”
“Till now, the SCERT was not given this responsibility owing to shortage of staff and other logistics. Such shortcoming will be removed soon,” he added.
Quizzed as to how the SCERT could be given the work when the PSEB Act, 1969, empowered the board to publish school textbooks, Kumar said the government would amend the Act.
Sources said even three months after the beginning of the current academic session, the board was struggling to procure paper to publish around 80 of the total 357 titles of the textbooks it had to publish this year.
