Education is in Concurrent List; how can we stop States: Delhi High Court on plea seeking common school syllabus across India

Upadhyay filed the Public Interest Litigation (PIL) arguing that different syllabus and curriculum by CBSE, ISCE and State Board is arbitrary and contrary to Articles 14, 15, 16, 21, 21A and other provisions of the constitution therefore void and inoperative.

He said that the syllabus and curriculum is common for all entrance examinations like JEE, NEET, NDA, CLAT and others but the syllabus and curriculum of CBSE, ICSE and State Board are totally different.

“Education Mafias are very powerful and have a very strong syndicate. They influence rules, regulations, policies & examinations. The questions asked in the competitive exams are not taught in government schools. So, parents are in double jeopardy. First, they ·have to pay massive fees to private schools… and then pay unbearable heavy fees to coaching centers too,” the petition said.

It was argued that the present education system isn’t only dividing the society among EWS, BPL, MIG and HIG Elite Class but also against ‘socialism, secularism, fraternity, unity and integrity of the nation’.
