In a bid to help parents to save money spent on sourcing expensive books from private publishers, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) is all set to adopt the e-commerce way. 

On August 9, NCERT will launch a portal to place textbook orders directly with the body. 

“The portal will be launched on August 9 and schools as well as individuals will be able to place order for books online and it will be delivered to them,” NCERT director Hrushikesh Senapathy told HT.

While the schools and individuals can place their orders, payment can be made at the time of delivery of books.

Approximately 42.5 million books are used by CBSE affiliated schools.

The portal will also assess the total number of books it needs to publish.
