Recently, Education Ministry held a meeting with senior officials of all ministries and departments including NCERT, Election Commission of India, ICAR, and DRDO wherein the new NCF was discussed.

To decide on what can or cannot be part of NCF, more than 700 state-level expert groups in States and Union Territories across subjects and cross-cutting themes have been created.

25 National-level expert groups including international experts.

The development of the NCF is being guided by the National Steering Committee (NSC), chaired by Dr K Kasturirangan, and supported by the Mandate Group, along with the National Council for Education Research and Training (NCERT).

The NCF includes the National Curriculum Framework for School Education (NCFSE), the National Curriculum Framework for Early Childhood Care & Education (NCFECCE), the National Curriculum Framework for Teacher Education (NCFTE), and the National Curriculum Framework for Adult Education (NCFAE).
