The new syllabus will be available on the official websites of the Board of Secondary Education (BSE), Council of Higher Secondary Education (CHSE) and State Council of Educational Research and Training (SCERT).
Block Education Officers and District Education Officers will inform the schools about the governments decision, Dash said.
