Mr Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank stated that the new NEP is neither aimed towards the forceful imposition of Indian languages on students nor it is against the English language.
Addressing an online interactive summit on ‘The New Education Policy: Readying and Preparing Students for the World’, Minister of Education Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ highlighted some of the features of the latest National Education Policy (NEP). Mr Pokhriyal stressed on how the government has exhaustively worked on gathering suggestions and recommendations from all the stakeholders and the institute heads before presenting the final draft of the education policy. He said that the policy was made available for public discourse at least six to seven months prior to the announcement.
He further stated that the latest policy is neither aimed towards the forceful imposition of Indian languages on students nor it is against the English language.
Advising all the institution heads and stakeholders to begin harnessing the NEP guidelines as much as practicable, the education minister has said that the ministry will soon arrange a meeting to discuss the administrative application of the NEP, which the institution can begin with immediate effect.
Talking about the veracity of the foreign universities, Pokhriyal said that the universities will be invited based on the criteria formulated by the Indian government to maintain qualitative education.
