new education policy

The new National Education Policy (NEP) is about to complete two years with the aim of major reforms in the education sector. Earlier, the Ministry of Education had started reviewing the steps taken for its implementation. Meanwhile, progress reports have been sought from all implementing agencies including all states and union territories. The Center has made it clear that the implementation of the policy should be expedited, a contingency approach will not work.

It also suggested that the states which perform better in implementing the policy should be given priority in providing financial assistance. Additional help will also be provided to them if needed. The new National Education Policy was approved by the government in July 2020. During this period, the education ministry is focusing on the states which have been quick to implement the NEP, as education is a subject in the Concurrent List of the Constitution. In which the Center and the states have to work together.

Meanwhile, work on the implementation of the policy is going on in full swing in most of the states, but some states like Bengal and Tamil Nadu are opposing it. Bengal has recently indicated its education policy. A high level committee has also been constituted in this regard.

While the ministry is yet to react to Bengal’s move, it has indicated that states that have been lax in implementing the NEP may face difficulties in getting financial assistance. However, the ministry has changed all its plans regarding education as per NEP. In such a situation, the states will get financial help only when they take steps in that direction. The ministry has also started examining the targets set for implementation of the policy.
