Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 has the potential to help India “rediscover” its old glory and deliver high-quality educational opportunities to the youth, said Assam Governor Jagdish Mukhi. “India has the reputation of developing apart from philosophy and mathematics, science and technology of a very high order, which had attracted scholars from all over the world,” said Mukhi while speaking at the valedictory session of the North East Education Conclave on NEP 2020 in Guwahati. “Over the next decade or two, India will have the highest population of young people who will achieve working age. The policy is essentially based on the principle that education must develop not only cognitive capacities of higher order but also social, ethical and emotional capacities and disposition. The rich heritage of ancient and eternal Indian knowledge and thought has been the guiding light for this policy,” he added.
