The notification is part of the efforts to improve quality of education across all 55,000 government, grant-in-ad and self- financed schools affiliated to Gujarat Secondary and Higher Secondary Education Board (GSHSEB).

It is aimed to benefit 1 crore students. The exam papers for main subjects in primary schools will be set by Gujarat Council of Educational Researchand Training (GCERT) while in case of secondary and higher secondary it will be done by GSHSEB.
All state affiliated schools will have to compulsorily follow NCERT textbooks issued through the Gujarat State Board of School Textbooks, according to the notification.
