Yoga made compulsory in Central Government Schools

Smriti Irani, the Minister for Human Resource Development has announced that all over the country, yoga has been made compulsory in all the Central Government run schools, including Kendriya Vidyalayas and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas.

CBSE board, with over 18,000 schools, is planning a strategy on how to implement the order.

After releasing the handbook and syllabus for yoga sessions in New Delhi, Smriti Irani said, “80 marks will be given for practical yoga. Therefore, this will not become an additional burden on the students.”


Yoga has also been made compulsory for teacher training qualifications. In order to meet the growing demands for yoga teachers, three different levels have also been designed – Diploma, Bachelor and Masters. State Governments too can follow this system if they choose to.

National-level yoga competitions for students are going to be held in New Delhi next year. The first prize winner gets an impressive Rs.5 lakhs.

Reacting to the announcement, officials of the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) said that no decision has been made about imposing compulsory yoga programme on schools that receive CG aid. “But yoga will be made compulsory for Kendriya Vidyalayas and Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas all over the country,” they said.
