    1. It has been told that English text book for CBSE class ix will be replaced and students are without the new text book. If CBSE wants to replace, they should have done before the commencement of the session. It’s almost halfway now as far as covering the syllabus is concerned. Why don’t you provide PDF of the new English text book of class ix for the benefit of the students.
