Modernising madarsas has been remained a major policy initiative of the Yogi government in Uttar Pradesh. To bring madarsas at par with other institutions, the govt has introduced NCERT books in their curriculum and made maths and science compulsory at intermediate level. The government has also been cracking down on ‘fake’ madarsas by initiating online registration of minority institutions.
