NEP will take education out of narrow thinking and connect it with modern ideas: PM Modi



National Education Policy which was launched in 2020 aims to enhance the quality of the education system which must provide to all students, irrespective of their place of residence, with particular focus on historically marginalised, disadvantaged, and underrepresented groups.

While inaugurating a three-day Akhil Bhartiya Shiksha Samagam on implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) in Varanasi, which was attended by over 300 academic, administrative and institutional leaders, Prime Minister Narendra Modi said the educational system should not only prepare degree holder youth, but also ensure that all the human resources necessary for the country’s progress were available.

The PM stressed that NEP is focused on making children skilled according to their talents and choices. Stating that the new policy introduced after a gap of 30 years would be instrumental in realising innumerable possibilities, he said, “The education system created by the Britishers was never part of the Indian ethos…the basic premise of the NEP is to take education out of narrow thinking and connect it with the modern ideas of the 21st century.”
