InfoLex Article - New Education Policy 2020 - A Paradigm Shift

Published On: 03/08/2020


On July 29, 2020, the Union Cabinet approved the National Education Policy 2020 (“NEP”), which replaces the 34 years old National Policy of Education, 1986. The objective of the NEP is to transform the country into a flourishing knowledge society by the overhauling of the school and higher education systems. The proposal is to create a system that includes humanitarian and constitutional values, creativity and critical thinking, use of technology, and philanthropic private and community participation, while still recognizing education as a public service. INDUSLAW’s Winnie Shekhar, Jaidrath Zaveri, and Nabarun Chandra Ray summarize and discuss the NEP.
