It is notable here that The National Council of Education Research and Training is the national level publisher of school books and the books are used by CBSE board schools. Many competitive examinations like the JEE and NEET also follow the NCERT syllabus.

The UP government had, last year proposed the introduction of NCERT books to the Madarsa board with an objective of bringing the students of Madarsa at par with mainstream educational standards. The UP government had enacted a 40 member committee with members from NCERT, Aligarh Muslim University, Lucknow University, principals of secondary and higher secondary schools and even research scholars from the Khwaja Moinuddin Chishti Urdu Arbi and Farsi university to discuss the introduction of non-language subjects based on NCERT curriculum.

The move is aimed at modernising the education in Madarsas. The UP government had also launched a Madarsa portal to provide transparency in employment, infrastructure and educational details of the several hundred madarsas operating in the state.
