Now school students can say bye-bye to the long queues they had to suffer in order to buy their course books for a new schooling session as from the next academic session, they can avail the NCERT books from an online portal and get them delivered at home.

All that students or their parents/guardians will have to do is simply go to the portal, browse through the books and make the online payments for the books they need.

Schools and vendors can already avail this service, and it is just a matte of time till the service is available for students as well.

An NCERT official stated, “Very soon the portal will also be opened to individual buyers. They can place their orders by logging onto the portal and books will be delivered at their doorsteps with nominal postal charges. Buyers can also track the status of their orders.”

“There will be an integrated payment gateway and an easy-to-use interface. We will slowly build up our systems to handle more load,” he added.

The initiative has been taken to address the problems that students and parents face during the unavailability of NCERT books.
