National Education Policy 2020
| Education Jagat - 01 Aug 2020

A single regulator for higher education institutions, multiple entries and exit options in degree courses, discontinuation of  MPhil programs, low stakes Board exams, common entrance exams for universities are among the highlights of the new National Education Policy (NEP) approved by the Union Cabinet.
 The policy, which was framed in 1986 and revised in 1992, had not been revised since then. The Cabinet also approved changing the name of the HRD Ministry to Education Ministry.
 “NEP 2020 aims to increase the Gross Enrolment Ratio in higher education including vocational education from 26.3 pc (2018) to 50 pc by 2035. At least 3.5 crore new seats will be added to higher education institutions,” HRD Higher Education Secretary Amit Khare said at a press briefing.
The policy also adds that the world’s top 100 foreign universities will be “facilitated” to operate in India through a new law.
