Bangalore: Edtech company Byju’s in its map, a part of study material issued to students, has shown parts of Jammu and Kashmir as ‘Azad Kashmir’ and Aksai Chin.
However, the company has issued a clarification saying the material does not belong to them and is wrongly attributed. “We will approach the authorities for further investigation and action,” Byju’s said.
A Byju’s spokesperson, through the company’s official handle, said the image in circulation is fake and not from its study material.
“All our content is watermarked and additionally our logo usage is incorrect, we never use an underline below the logo. We strongly condemn the incorrect map of India that is being distributed maliciously with our incorrect logo placed on it,” the spokesperson said.
The image has been attributed to student notes and also to an exam paper of Byju’s, which has been denied by the company.
“This is not part of any material that we have distributed. Our curriculum and all material created are strictly aligned to multiple accreditation boards at the national level, and are created keeping in mind the highest standards. We will be reporting this to the concerned authorities for further investigation and action,” the spokesperson added.
