New education policy applicable from 2022, says Modi

Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday said that the National Education Policy-2020 would come into effect from 2022. He elicited positive participation from all stake holders like teachers, administrators, voluntary organisations and parents to cooperate and participate in this mission, while addressing a conclave on School Education in 21st Century.

The NEP will reduce the syllabus and make learning a fun-based and complete experience, the PM said, also allaying reservations regarding the medium of instruction, the language. He also noted that the Ministry of Education had received over 15 lakh suggestions from teachers on the NEP implementation within a week.

While the existing system is limited, the new policy offer many opportunities to students who may want to change their subject at a later stage, he said.
