CIP 2020: As the National Education Policy (PNE) 2020 completes two years today, Union Home Minister Amit Shah and Union Education Minister Dharmendra Pradhan will launch a series of initiatives in the education and skills sectors at an event in New Delhi at 4 p.m.
From the introduction of a multi-disciplinary four-year undergraduate program with multiple exit options, the discontinuation of the M Phil program to the redesign of the curriculum and easier board exams, the policy has touched all aspects of school and higher education. However, NEP has been launched for guidance only and is not mandatory to follow.
To take stock of the progress of the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, Prime Minister Narendra Modi held a review meeting with stakeholders on May 7 to assess implementation. Several states including Karnataka, Gujarat, Madhya Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh have implemented the national education policy in the state. Meanwhile, Delhi University is the only higher education to follow the four-year undergraduate program.
