News - NCERT textbooks to teach about 'good and bad touch'

With the country witnessing a significant rise in the incidents of child abuse, the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) wants schools kids to know the difference between 'good touch' and 'bad touch'.

The NCERT has told that all its books from the next session will carry a list of DOs to deal with such cases.
Besides, NCERT will also have certain helpline numbers, brief about the POCSO Act and the National Commission for Protection of Child Rights (NCPCR).

Here's what NCERT Director said :

While commenting on the same, the NCERT Director, Hrushikesh Senapathy told that the Ministry of Child and Women Development had approached them with the suggestion and "we have accepted it"
"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 PTI
Teachers do make an effort to educate students to differentiate between 'good and bad touch', but they, as well as parents, are often clueless about what to do in such situations and where to report such cases, told Senapathy.

More on the report :

The move comes in the backdrop of concerns about the safety of students in the wake of killing of a 7 year-old boy on a private school campus in Gurgaon and the rape of a 5 year-old girl by a school peon in Delhi.
