The matter is of 1962 when the India-China 1961 War started between India and China. The Prime Minister of India started the Non-Aligned Movement at that time instead of being part of any faction. He was leading the Organization of Non-Aligned Countries. However, India finally annoyed the US and Britain by purchasing MiG aircraft from the Soviet Union (now Russia) in the late 50s. But still, America supported India in this war. However, Russia also adopted a policy of neutrality by promising to be friendly with India and neither did it support China or India.

Well … somewhere in the midst of this ongoing battle on the border, the Indian government was constantly trying to improve education. It was very clear that without improving education, we may win the battle on the border but we will lose the battle inside the country. At that time the standard of education in India was very low. But the government too was gearing up to fight against poverty and illiteracy. While we were trying to solve diplomatic issues, on the one hand, we were also engaged in promoting education throughout the country.

CBSE was established in 1952

CBSE was established in 1952 to improve the education system and integration of curriculum in the country. At the time of the establishment of CBSE, its scope was not very wide. Later in 1962, its scope was expanded and it was reorganized during the Indo-China war. And since then, its field has been continuously expanding. Currently, CBSE boards are spread not only across the whole country but across 21 countries around the world. It has about 141 schools in 21 countries around the world.

The first board of education in the country was established in 1921, which was named 'UP Board of High School and Intermediate Education'. Its operational area was Rajputana, Central India and Gwalior. After this, in 1929, the then Government of India recommended creating a joint board, which was named 'Board of High School and Intermediate Education', Rajputana. Under this, the area of ​​Ajmer, Merwara, Central India and Gwalior used to come. It continued to expand over time, but later with the formation of separate boards of states and the establishment of state universities, its area gradually declined. Due to which the government amended the constitution of the board in 1952 and expanded it to 'C' and 'D' areas and changed its name to 'Central Board of Secondary Education' i.e. 'Central Board of Secondary Education', CBSE. It was later restructured in 1962 during the India-China war.

When the Delhi Board became part of CBSE

As part of the restructuring, the 'Delhi Board of Secondary Education' was merged with the Central Board. So at that time, all the schools affiliated to the Delhi Board became part of the Central Board. After this, schools in the Union Territory of Chandigarh, Andaman and Nicobar Islands, Arunachal Pradesh and Sikkim were also affiliated to the Central Board.

CBSE Board Does Not Take Money from the Government

The CBSE board bears its own expenses. It does not charge any kind of expenditure from the Government of India. The board caters to all its financial needs with annual fee charges, affiliation fees, admission fees, application fees for many entrance exams and board publication etc.

CBSE has more than 20 thousand schools worldwide. CBSE board schools provide similar education so that people with transferable jobs are not harmed by the education of children even when they are transferred in mid-session. Every year lakhs of students take part in the CBSE board exams.
