Home YOU, SHOULD KNOW Delhi School Bag Policy

Delhi School Bag Policy

According to the new Delhi School Bag Policy, the weight of the school bag of students between Class 1 and Class 10 should not be more than 10% of their body weight. The policy suggests that the schools should follow and use textbooks prescribed by NCERT, SCERT and CBSE only.

The schools should also formulate thoughtful time table so that the students need not carry too many books on a single day. The policy envisages to promote holistic development of students through participation in games, art and culture, sports and other creative activities. The students should be practiced with the habit of reading library books. Only single notebook should be carried by class 1 and class 2 students. For students of other classes one notebook per subject should be prescribed.

 As we can clearly see that these days the weight of school bag is really heavy that the own child weight which can lead into serious difficulties and backache problems at such a young age

The Delhi government has also issued class wise weight limit for school bags in order to avoid confusion in implementation of the policies.
Accordingly, the pre-primary classes should not carry bags and should not be issued with the homework’s.
