The University Grants Commission (UGC) is asking writers, critics, and faculty members from higher education institutes to show their interest in creating new textbooks. These books will be in 12 Indian languages and aimed at undergraduate (UG) level courses in subjects like Arts, Science, and Social Sciences. If you are interested, you can submit an Expression of Interest (EOI).
Interested people have time until January 30, 2024, at 11:59 pm. This is all about the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which wants to support Indian languages. CBSE (Central Board of Secondary Education) told schools to use NCERT books, now accessible in 22 Indian languages, following this goal.
“UGC is working on providing textbooks at the undergraduate level in Arts, Science, Commerce and Social Sciences in 12 Indian languages. We are identifying nodal universities in different states who will coordinate the exercise of forming teams of authors who can write high quality textbooks in Indian languages. This effort is in tune with NEP 2020’s goal to provide learning opportunities to students in Universities in Indian languages. This letter is to identify interested authors to register with UGC so that they can participate in this endeavour.” said Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar, Chairman, UGC.
