Curriculum committee has taken a decision to use free software at Higher Secondary level. From the academic year 2017 -2018, only the free software should be used for curricular activities.

Accountancy Study and Free Software use

In the course book of Higher Secondary Commerce group students (as part of Computerised Accounting study) are given the proprietary software MS Excel, MS Access, Tally etc. But, as per the decision was taken by the curriculum committee, this software can't be used for study purpose from this academic year.

What are the Changes?

LibreOffice Calc in lieu of MS Excel

Excel is a spreadsheet software developed by the global software colossus, Microsoft. Instead of this, Commerce group students are recommended to use a free and open source spreadsheet software called LibreOffice Calc. All works accomplished by using MS Excel is possible by this LibreOffice Calc also. This new software to be used for the study of Accountancy subject is available in edu - Ubuntu installed computers. Digital handbook, study notes etc for Libre Office Calc can be downloaded from the below link.

LibreOffice Base in the place of MS Access

The Higher Secondary students have introduced a free database software named LibreOffice Base instead of the database software MS Access developed by Microsoft. LibreOffice Base is pre-installed in Edu Ubuntu operating systems customized by IT@school. Digital handbook and other study requirements for LibreOffice Base study will be posted when it is made available.

GNU KHATA in lieu of Tally

The significant change to be noted in Accountancy subject (Computerized Accounting) for Higher Secondary students is the avoidance of the accounting package, Tally which they study presently. This year onwards the students are advised to use the accounting package called GNU KHATA HSSLIVE rather than using Tally. Tally software has occupied a foremost place in the area of accounting. The practice imparted to the Commerce group students in the Higher Secondary level in Tally package has enabled them much in their higher studies as well as in the realm of employment. But, for using Tally, Windows platform is needed and it does not come under free and open source software are the demerits of this.
GNU KHATA, the new software occupying the place of Tally is a novel pursuit in the accounting field. GNU KHATA can be used by installing it in the IT@School customized Edu Ubuntu systems. Since the business world has not seen using GNU KHATA HSSLIVE for accounting, familiarizing this profoundly to the teachers and the students becomes a tremendous need. Also to make the business world aware of the possibilities of all kinds of accounting activities with GNU KHATA and to universalize the use of GNU KHATA at the pragmatic level, much publicity has to be done. HSSLIV GNU/KHATA was developed by a Bombay based Digital Freedom Foundation. Digital handbook, student notes etc are available from the links below.

Curriculum Revision and Evaluation

How these changes in Accountancy subject of Commerce group students are considered in exam and valuation are also clearly mentioned. 2017-18 academic year Second year (Plus Two) students should be given a chance to study the free software - LibreOffice Calc, LibreOffice Base, GNU KHATA etc. At the same time, even if the students answer in MS Excel, MS Access, Tally software which they study at present, should also be considered in valuation. However, for the 2017-18 academic year students studying Accountancy in Plus one, the classes will be by using free software thoroughly.

Only Free software at schools

Further, in Govt/Aided schools, unlicensed software can't be installed in computers and laptops supplied by the government. The complete use of software in Higher Secondary School level will be that of free software. Circulars from the Directorate of Higher Secondary Education can be downloaded from the link. As soon as the study materials of the revised portion of Accountancy for Higher Secondary Commerce students are available, it will be updated here.
