New Delhi, Feb 4: The government has asked NCERT to complete the process of consultations on the new education policy with stakeholders by August and submit a report to it by September.

With the deliberation on the policy kicking off on January 26, she said NCERT should also reach out to various stakeholders seeking their feedbacks and aspirations.

"This exercise is to be completed by August and the report submitted by September 2015," an official statement said.

Irani also accepted suggestions for publishing a book which celebrates the achievements of women in their chosen fields.

During the deliberation, she said NCERT in consultation with the Ministry of Defence should publish a book that contains a collection of eminent freedom fighters of the country and it should be named as Veer Gaatha, officials in the HRD Ministry said.

She, however, did not name the freedom fighters who would find a place in the book.
