NEW DELHI: The HRD Ministry is likely to convene a meeting of the Central Advisory Board of Education (CABE) on July 18 to discuss the new education policy.

This will be the first CABE meeting after the NDA Government came to power. The CABE was reconstituted on June 11, with 19 nominated members from different fields, apart from ex-officio members, various Union Ministers and Vice-Chancellors of different Universities.  Though the main focus of the meeting would be on the new education policy, a final decision on the ‘no retention policy’ in schools is expected to be taken. All the reports of the sub-committee prepared by the previous body of the Central Advisory Board of Education will also be taken up for consideration.
