About the Conclave:
NEP-2020 is the first education policy of the twenty-first century which was announced after 34
years of the previous National Policy on Education declared in 1986. NEP-2020 is directed
towards initiating major reforms in schools and higher education levels. National Education Policy
focuses on the principle that education is fundamental for achieving full human potential,
developing an equitable and just society and promoting national development.
The main objective of the National Education Policy is to transform India into an equitable and
vibrant knowledge society. It envisions an India-centric education system that contributes directly
to transforming India into a Knowledge super-power.
The comprehensive transformation aimed through effective implementation of NEP is expected to bring
about a paradigm shift in the country’s education system and create reinforced educational
ecosystem for realizing ‘Atmanirbhar Bharat’ envisaged by the Honourable Prime Minister of
India—Shri. Narendra Modi ji. The policy addresses various factors related to professional
education, adult education and lifelong learning, promotion of Indian languages, technology and
integration along with online and digital education. It proposes innovative concepts such as
Academic Bank of Credit (ABC), multiple exit options with appropriate certification, restructuring
of higher education institutions.
It is heartening to note that various Webinars, Virtual Conferences, and Conclaves on various
aspects of National Education Policy 2020 are being organized across the country by several
academic institutions since it is believed that academic institutions have a greater role to
contribute towards the implementation of NEP with full spirit.
