To avoid a tragedy like the murder of a seven year old in Ryan International School in future, schools and states have already started sending safety guidelines for the students studying in schools.
On the issue, National Council of Education Research and Training (NCERT) said that from next session all its books will contain the list of dos when it comes to dealing with a child abuse cases.
The books will also contain important helpline numbers and brief information about the POSCO act and National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).
Through this initiative, the NCERT is trying to teach students about the good touch and bad touch and what they should do if they were to face such situation.
NCERT Director Hrushikesh Senapathy said "Ministry of Child and Women Development had approached them with the suggestion and we accepted it".
He further said that teachers and parents do teach their children about the good and bad touch but they are often clueless about what to do and where they should report when something like this happens.
“So from the next session, the inner side of the back cover of all NCERT books will have certain guidelines in easily comprehensible language. It will also have certain illustrations about good touch and bad touch,” he said.
The move comes at a time when parents are concerned about their child's safety after the killing of seven year old boy in Gurgaon School and rape of a five year old girl by peon in Delhi.
