Bhartiya Shiksha Board: The All India Council for Technical Education (AICTE) has recognised the Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) as a pan-Indian organisation responsible for school education. The higher education division of the Union Education Ministry has also approved it. This represents a huge development for the 2019-established BSB. The board wants to provide children with a thorough education that combines ancient Indian knowledge systems with cutting-edge science and technology.
AICTE Grants Equivalency to Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) Alongside CBSE and ICSE
The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) and the Indian Council of Secondary Education (ICSE), two other national school boards, have been declared comparable to the BSB, the AICTE has informed engineering and technical institutes and colleges. The Maharishi Sandipani Rashtriya Ved Vidya Pratishthan (MSRVVP) launched the Bhartiya Shiksha Board on March 9, 2019, according to an official notice from the AICTE. The Association of Indian Universities has given BSB equivalency to the nation’s school boards, the council continued to note. The Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) will operate as a normal school Board within India now that the AIU has awarded equivalency to its Class 10 and 12 board examinations. By rejecting Thomas Babington Macaulay’s educational agenda and substituting it with the Gurukul system and Bhartiya Gyan Parampara (Indian knowledge tradition), the Bhartiya Shiksha Board (BSB) seeks to restore Indian knowledge systems. According to the BSB, Indian culture and values cannot coexist with the Macaulay education system that the British imposed in the 19th century.

AICTE, established in November 1945, is a top national advisory agency that assesses the facilities for technical education that are available and encourages coordinated and integrated growth throughout the nation. It is mandated by law to plan, develop norms, and ensure quality assurance through accreditation, prioritised funding, monitoring, and assessment, as well as maintaining certification and rewards parity.
