"The ruling, in addition to providing convenience to children and parents, will also enable them to choose books depending on their preference," it said.
Arguing that the sale of books, stationary and other items sold by the school be treated as "essential requirements", the court last week in a decision refused to put a ban on these activities.
In doing so, the court overturned the April 2017 injunction issued by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), which asked affiliating schools not to indulge in "commercial" activities.
The court said availability of uniforms, non-NCERT reference books or even food items for sale only to the students of the school does not fall in the category of and cannot at all be considered as commercialisation.
Minister of State for Human Resource Development Upendra Kushwaha, in December last year, told Parliament that CBSE has not directed students or schools to buy or prescribe NCERT books only.
