New Education Policy 2020: Impact on India’s Higher Educational Institutions

ACS Webinars

The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), which was approved by the Union Cabinet of India on July 28, 2020, outlines a bold new vision for India’s education system. For example, it hopes to foster the creation of multi-disciplinary and research intensive institutions that are highly engaged with the local communities, yet globally networked.
