Some times back I needed various pictures from NCERT textbooks. The best source I could think of was the free NCERT textbooks available on NCERT website. But to my utter dismay I could not download the books, it was only the front cover of the books I could download. I do not know whether every one else is facing similar predicament or not.
If you are facing the same problem, then relax. I, after some Googling landed on a great web work. This site has extracted all the NCERT books and has made them free to download. So, if in the new session you are not getting your books, then you have a pick to download them free from: http://ncertbooks.prashanthellina.com/
Also share how your examinations were. Keep writing.
