Prime Minister Narendra Modi has said that New Education Policy (NEP) will transform job seekers into job creators. Addressing Smart India Hackathon 2020, he said the NEP is not just a policy but a compilation of aspirations of all the Indians.

The Prime Minister gave a mantra to students and said, never stop three things in life – learning, questioning and solving. The Prime Minister said that the time has come for increased focus on learning, research and innovation in the field of education. He said, the 21st century is the era of knowledge and this is exactly what New Education Policy does.

The Prime Minister said we are focussing on the quality of education in the country. Elaborating on the Centre’s attempts to transform the content and method of imparting education in the country, Mr Modi said, the New Education Policy emphasizes on inter-disciplinary study, which will ensure that the focus is on what the student wants to learn instead of being compelled to learn.

Mr Modi also said that India is shifting from the burden of school bags to the boon of learning. He said, Languages of India will develop more due to the changes brought about in the education policy. This will not only increase India’s knowledge but will also increase the unity among its people, the Prime Minister told the students participating in the Smart India Hackathon 2020. This year, around 10,000 students are participating in the hackathon.

The grand finale of Smart India Hackathon 2020 (Software) is being held from August 1 to 3. He also interacted with students and enquired about their projects ranging from women’s hygiene products to crime detection technologies to water harvesting. This year, over 4.5 lakh entries were received for the competition.
