The government is trying its best to introduce a new Vedic board which will be apart from CBSE but due to some reservations issued by MSRVVP, it has been suggested to include a Vedic education as a mainstream subject in the current Curriculum.
The Government is ready to revive Vedic education by creating a Vedic board which will be apart from the CBSE Board, Government is looking for different options regarding the implementation of Vedic education in the current school curriculum. Earlier the Government announced to offer technical education in regional Language and months later the Government announced to have a separate Vedic Board. There are many schools run on CBSE, ICSE, IB, and state boards among them many days schools in India and boarding schools in India that provide the best education to their students but the government is ready to revive Vedic education by creating a new board along with other boards.
Patanjali Group which is run by Yog Guru Baba Ramdev has already worked on the establishment of a separate Vedic board which is known as a Bhartiya Shiksha Board ( BSB ) after the permission granted by the education ministry and the Board was planned to launch in 2020-2021 but duecoronav outbreak it was postponed. The Board is also supported by Rashtriya Swayamsevak Sangh but various rounds of discussions and files movement and we’re constantly looking for ways to set up a separate Vedic board they found that they have a serious reservation issue for establishing different Vedic boards.
Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Veda Vidya Pratishthan (MSRVVP) which is a fully-government funded self Governing body has expressed serious issue regarding the reservation on setting separate Vedic board as the education department informed that Government already runs the Central Board Of Secondary Education and National Institute of Open Schooling so the government should not create a different board as there is no need for that as the current board already providing in Value Education lesson which is more focused on Vedas and Vedic education so therefore a new board for Vedic education is not required for this sole purpose.
Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Veda Vidya Pratishthan (MSRVVP) also raised another question for alignment of Vedic education to the Current National Curriculum Framework, School education department told that the Right to Education Act, 2009, under section 29 and 30 has been already classified as Vedic pathshalas and madrasas. Technical concerns were also raised on how MSRVVP which already runs Vedic schools and courses will be allowed to frame up an affiliating board as funding, as well as its functions, are usually separate in a board, which can be found in CBSE Board.
Now to resolve this issue a meeting has been scheduled where the Department of School Education Officials, Member of the National Council of Education Research, Training and CBSE, and the representatives of MSRVVP among others, will try to find a way to revive Vedic education’ in the school curriculum. One of the options which come forward is to introduce Vedic education as a mainstream subject in the current curriculum.
Bhartiya Shiksha Board ( BSB ) also lined up at the Education Ministry for gaining uniformity and recognition for the students who will be studying in their affiliated schools. BSB will also have to align its curriculum to the National Council of Education as per the norms and as the timeline for BSB has already extended due to Covid it has time to revive its curriculum.
