Ministry of Education decides to incorporate the concept of consumer protection and trade practices into the curriculum. Although not to be given as a separate course, it will be incorporated within main subjects, including mathematics, English, civics and social science, to both primary and secondary school students.
The move is targeted at raising literacy about fair trade competition and the rights of consumers. The curriculum will be implemented in all regional states and city administrations starting from the next academic year. It will also be put into practice along with the education road map launched last year.
