Centre open to views on NEP: Dharmendra Pradhan



The National Education Policy (NEP) is not a document containing a few pages but has a lot of new features for the benefit of students, said Union Education and Skill Development Minister Dharmendra Pradhan.

The Union government is open to ideas and new methods when it comes to NEP, Pradhan further stated while addressing the 34th convocation of Avinashilingam Institute for Home Science and Higher Education for Women in Coimbatore.

Prime Minister Narendra Modi has emphatically said that all should learn their mother tongue and the NEP will help to learn, read and write in the mother tongue in foundational years, Pradhan added. He also informed that the government has asked the National Council of Educational Research and Training (NCERT) to publish books in all Indian languages from this academic year onwards.
