LAHORE: The Punjab Curriculum and Textbook Board (PCTB) has given printing rights the book to a publisher from nursery to fifth classes for the academic year 2021 under the Single National Curriculum (SNC) policy of Prime Minister Imran Khan.
In this connection, an event was held at the PCTB Auditorium in which more than 360 publishers participated.
PCTB Managing Director Dr Farooq Manzoor said the publication of textbooks had started.
He said the uniform curriculum policy would provide equal opportunity of quality education to the rich and the poor students and it would not only promote national unity but also persuade the students to eagerly advance in education.
Mr Manzoor said priorities were set up to publish error-free books and in this connection, a transparent balloting system was adopted to award publication of textbooks so that no question could be raised regarding disenfranchisement of any publisher.
He said supply of all textbooks would be ensured before the advent of new academic year and no negligence in this regard would be tolerated.
