The Government is in a rush to set up the India’s first National School board for Vedic Education in less than a month.
Only a week time has been provided for accepting the ‘Expression of Interest’ (EOI) inviting application from private keen on setting up the bhartiya shiksha board (BSB). Although there is no as such rule by the government. The government itself provides at least 2 weeks time for accepting the application of EOI.
Maharshi Sandipani Rashtriya Vedavidya Prathisthan (MSRVVP) has released the ‘Expression of Interest’ on Monday and the deadline for accepting the application is February 19 at 5 pm.
A meeting was held on January 11, 2019 for setting up the BSB for vedic education in which the governing council of MSRVVP has given its agreement for the set up. Current Union HRD minister Prakash Javedkar and Minister for state and law and Justice P P Chaudhary attended the meeting.
The BSB will be the first private board that will be recognised by the union government. ‘With due approval of government’ the agency selected for establishing the board will be issued a formal order by MSRVVP, the EOI states.
The applicant should be “involved in preservation, conservation, promotion and propogation of Indaian traditional knowledge that includes Vedic education, sanskrit education and fiver years yoga in school” according to the eligibility criteria.
The objective of BSB will be standardizing ‘Indian Traditional Knowledge’ such as vedic education, sanskrit education, Sashtras and Darsanas and Bharatiya Parampara. Just like other schools or boards syllabus, BSB will also draft its own syllabus and will conduct examination time to time, issues certificates and will affiliate Gurukulas, pathshalas and new schools that will offer vedic and modern education.
The establishment of BSB will benifit other educational institutions like Ramdev’s Acharyakulam, Vidya Bharati school and Arya samaj because it will allow them to sustain their model of education, which CBSE like board do not allow.
