The move looks like a new way to justify the political propaganda initiated by a party which is famous for its influence over academia as well as the professional sphere.

However, it doesn’t mean that a detailed unbiased approach is going to be taken forward towards educating young children and imparting financial knowledge.
She said directions to the officials to start the process for the same has been issued which is due to be implemented in short span.
The new chapter will be introduced from the next academic session and has been much talked about in the intellectual circle which has always seen novelty with new excitement, not to ignore certain aversions by the conventional ones.
