Human Resource Development Minister Smriti Irani said the proposed new education policy would "fructify next year", amid a series of questions on the involvement of stakeholders from the grassroot level to frame the new policy.
"The government has undertaken an unprecedented collaborated, multi-stakeholder and multi-pronged consultation process for formulating the new education policy. (The consultation process) included online, grassroots and national level thematic deliberations," she said during Question Hour.
Ms Irani stressed that the consultative process included over 2 lakh gram panchayats, over 6,000 blocks and several urban bodies.
Responding to a supplementary, she said results of better co-ordination between CBSE and state education boards will be seen from next year onwards. Her attention was pointed towards the different syllabi being followed by various state boards and the CBSE.
Ms Irani said the 'e-pathshala' project has ensured that all CBSE books from class I to XII are available for free online and through a mobile phone application.
