Union State Education Minister Dr Subhas Sarkar said on Wednesday that the new Education Policy (NEP), published in 2020, has brought long-awaited reforms to help build 21st century India.
Addressing the 9th convocation of the Guru Hasidas Central University in Bilapur, Chhattisgarh, he said the NEP focuses on empirical learning along with regular studies.
The National Education Policy 2020 aims to strengthen emotional learning. It has laid the groundwork for long-awaited reforms that will prove useful in creating 21st century India, he said.
“The benefits of the NEP will be visible if we understand and implement it more closely on the ground. Such a policy will prepare our children and youth to build Aatmanirbhar Bharat (independent India),” said the Union Minister.
He praised the efforts of the Central University of Bila Tserkva to implement the NEP, in which the institute set up a task force and signed several memoranda of understanding.
On this occasion, 141 students were awarded gold medals for academic achievement, and 81 students received a doctorate, according to the university.
