Overview of New Education Policy:

Formed as a comprehensive framework in order to guide the development of education in India, the New Education Policy was passed for implementation in July 2020. The policy which was approved by the Union Cabinet last year replaced the National Policy on Education framed in 1986. The first policy for the development of Education came in 1968 and the second was framed in 1986 under the then Prime Minister Indira Gandhi.

The inclusive framework of the policy aims to focus on the elementary level of education to higher education by paving the way for transformational reforms in the education system. The key takeaways of the NEP 2020 include teaching the mother language or regional language up to 5th class; bridging social gaps in access, participation, and learning outcomes; achieving a target of 100% Gross Enrolment Ratio (GEER) in school education by 2030; lowering the stakes of board exams; a single regulator for higher education institution, and more.

Among other salient features of the new policy, the most crucial remains to replace the 10+2 structure of the school with a more comprehensive 5+3+3+4 curricular structure, while discontinuing of M.Phil programmes and subsequently fixing fees and implementing common norms for public and private higher education institutions, outlined in the new NEP.
