Say Yes to Life, No to Drugs Pledge: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has issued a new circular, Circular No: Acad-140/2023, calling for a collective fight against drug abuse. This initiative, titled ‘Join Drive Against Drug Abuse: e-pledge for Teachers and Students,’ comes in collaboration with the Narcotics Control Bureau (NCB) under the Ministry of Home Affairs, Government of India.

The NCB, being the central authority on drug-related issues in India, emphasizes the importance of spreading awareness about the harmful effects of drugs. This fight, they believe, can only be successful if it reaches every household in the country.
