He has ordered action in the matter even as the private publisher has chose to stop the printing and sale of the book.

The Ministry of Human Resources Department on Thursday said that action will be taken against the publisher of a Class 12 textbook that said "36-24-36" was the "perfect body shape" for women. "That is why in Miss World or Miss Universe competitions, such type of shape is also taken into consideration", read the excerpt from the chapter titled "Physiology and Sports" which went viral on Tuesday night.

They are, however, waiting for an explanation from the author and are yet to release an official statement on the controversy.The Ryan International School authorities, meanwhile, claimed that they were not.

The publishers also announced that they have "stopped the printing, selling and distribution of the revised book with immediate effect". A cursory sentence in the section on "Differences in shape" says that when it comes to males, the "V" body shape is considered the best. "It also states that the schools will exercise extreme care while selecting books of private publishers", it added.
