Telangana Intermediate board released revised Political Science (Civics) text books for 1st year Intermediate today by the Secretary, TSBIE. The Director, Telugu Academy and all the officers of the TSBIE were present.
The Syllabii and textbooks of II languages viz: Urdu, Hindi, Sanskrit and Arabic of II year Intermediate and the syllabii of Humanities textbooks of 1st Year Intermediate viz: Commerce, Economics, Public Administration, History & Geography were released in the first week of June for the Academic Year 2019-20.
The new textbooks of these subjects are available in the market. The Subject of 'Civics' is not offered at the +2 Level in the CBSE & ICSE. It does not even find its place in other State Educational Boards of India at +2 Level. Further Universities like Delhi University is not considering the Subject 'Civics' as 'Political Science' and denied admissions for Under graduate courses like BA (Honours) Political Science.
Hence the TSBIE has changed the name of the 'Civics' subject as 'Political Science'. However, the failed candidates are permitted to appear in these subjects with old syllabii textbooks in the ensuing Intermediate Public Examinations, March, 2020 and Advanced Supplementary Intermediate Public Examinations, May/June 2020 only.
