In the present education system, maximum emphasis is given towards getting a job, whereas in this, the emphasis will be on character building along with the multidimensional development of the student. Modern society is the result of literacy, education and research. Whatever progress we have made today is the result of education. From matchsticks to smartphones, education and scientific research are the result. But as the society has progressed with the advent of digitalization, the education needs of the general public have also changed. Keeping in view the contemporary needs, a new National Educational Policy has been prepared after every few decades to meet those changed needs. So far in 1986 and the third has been executed recently.
The New Education Policy, the first such policy in Indian history, adopted a multi-pronged and multi-stakeholder mentoring process, which included online, grassroots and national level discussions. The discussions at the grassroots level extended to all Gram Panchayats, Blocks, Urban Local Bodies, Districts and States/Union Territories. He said that the NEP has been prepared keeping in mind the more than 2 lakh suggestions received from teachers, academicians, parents and other stakeholders related to education. This policy suggests many revolutionary changes in school and higher education for the holistic development of the students. He said that this National Education Policy would fulfill the vision of Prime Minister Shri Narendra Modi to make a self-reliant India (Aatma Nirbhar Bharat).
