Rajasthan to start a Vedic Education Board

Rajasthan to start a Vedic Education Board

  • Months after announcing a major overhaul of India’s education system through the National Education Policy (NEP 2020), the Centre is mulling setting up a Vedic education board for schools apart from the already existing CBSE board.
  • In this connection, it is important to note that in January 2019, the education ministry had already permitted the Baba Ramdev-run Patanjali group to set up a Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) on ‘Indian knowledge systems’ — making it the first private education board to receive the Centre’s nod.
  • The decision was taken in a meeting of the governing council of the Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Vedavidya Pratishthan (MSRVP) – a fully-funded autonomous body under the HRD Ministry working on promotion of ‘ved vidya’ – chaired by former HRD minister Prakash Javadekar.
  • The proposal to integrate Vedic education in the school curriculum was first mooted by former HRD minister Prakash Javadekar shortly after the Maharashtra International Education Board was set up in 2018 under the leadership of former chief minister Devendra Fadnavis.
  • While integration of a new discipline into the core curriculum is welcome, schools should have the flexibility to choose based on their institutional goals and vision.

What is the news?

  • The Congress government in Rajasthan will set up a Vedic Education and Sanskar Board to revive the knowledge of ancient Sanskrit scriptures and connect the learnings of the Vedas with science and yoga. The board is likely to be set up in the coming four to five months.
  • Minister of State for Sanskrit Education Subhash Garg said here on Monday that a committee appointed to define the aims, objectives and functioning of the board had submitted its report to the State government. Based on the panel’s recommendations, the board will adopt education modules revolving around Vedic knowledge.
  • The ruling Congress had promised the establishment of the Vedic Education and Sanskar Board as well as steps to promote Sanskrit language and education in its manifesto for the 2018 State Assembly election.
