The state government will introduce moral education in schools from December that will include the Bhagavad Gita, the Legislative Council was told on Monday.
School Education & Literacy Minister B C Nagesh told the Council that there is no proposal before the government to make Bhagavad Gita a standalone learning component.
Nagesh said there is no decision yet on the kind of moral education that needs to be introduced.
According to the minister, students will neither be assessed on moral education nor will there be an exam.
In the March legislature session, lawmakers had demanded that moral education be introduced in schools.
