Union Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on Tuesday said the NEP will facilitate creating of jobs and entrepreneurs and help the country’s education system meet the global standards. The New Education Policy 2020 will benefit students, he said addressing the 22nd convocation of IIT Guwahati through a video conference.
‘There was no change in the education policy for almost last three decades. Everyone has welcomed it and the new policy has received an overwhelming response from all segments of the society. Before finalising, we had consulted teachers, students, parents and other sections,’ Union education minister said.
“As former President APJ Abdul Kalam had stated during an IIT-Guwahati convocation programme here that education should create jobs and entrepreneurs, the NEP is aimed at doing the same thing. It will help create jobs and entrepreneurs in our society,’ Pokhriyal said.
