Responses Received on No-Detention Policy

In pursuance of a resolution adopted in the 59th meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) held on 6th June, 2012, a Sub-Committee was constituted for assessment of implementation of Continuous and Comprehensive Evaluation (CCE) in the context of No-Detention provision in the Right of Children to Free and Compulsory Education (RTE) Act, 2009. The Sub Committee during the course of its work held 5 (five) regional meetings and consulted various stakeholders over the issue of No Detention. The Sub-Committee submitted its report in August, 2014. The recommendations of Sub-Committee include, inter-alia, measuring Learning Level Outcomes of all children on regular basis, to catalyse a performance-driven culture and review of ‘No-Detention’ policy and its implementation in a phased manner.

The report of the Sub-Committee was placed before CABE in its meeting held on 19.8.2015, wherein it was decided to request all States/UTs to share their views on the No-Detention policy, in writing with Ministry of Human Resource Development. 22 States shared their views on the No Detention policy out of which 18 States have suggested to modify the No Detention policy.

Additionally, during the consultations held with State Governments for formulation of New Education Policy (NEP), the issues related to No-Detention policy were also covered. Presently, all such suggestions have been forwarded to the Committee for evolution of New Education Policy.

Another Sub-Committee under the Chairpersonship of Minister of Education, Government of Rajasthan has been constituted on 26.10.2015 inter-alia, to review the feedback received from States/UTs on the No-Detention policy.
