New Delhi: Prime Minister Narendra Modi on Friday indicated that the new National Education Policy (NEP) can be implemented by 2022.


PM Modi said while addressing the conclave on ‘Transformational Reforms in Higher Education under NEP’ that the education policy was approved after extensive discussions for more than three to four years and taking over lakhs of suggestions into consideration.


Modi said, "When India is celebrating the 75th year of independence, all Indian students should learn according to the direction and provision of the new education policy. It is our collective responsibility," Modi said in 21st century schooling Addressing the two-day conference held at Ministry of Education.


The NEP was approved by the Union Cabinet on 29 July. Due to epidemic-induced disruptions or if its implementation would be pushed to 2021, there was ambiguity after the new policy came into force from 2020.


The education ministry in collaboration with states will have to break down the implementation of the NEP recommendations in a phased manner during 2021-22 and 2022-23 academic years.


The NEP 2020 talks about a systemic reform in the education sector which includes-- multi-disciplinary education, vocational learning class six onward and less focus on exams, board marks, among others.


Modi said teachers will have to learn the new ways, and will also be required to unlearn some past learnings. He urged the teachers’ community to effectively implement the new policy, which according to him will give a “direction to 21st Century India" and help in achieving the new aspirations and realities of the country".


“Do not limit class rooms to the walls…pre-school is the first outside experience for the children. We need teachers’ right from the pre-school level who focus on fun-learning, activity-based learning and discovery-based learning. While some schools and teachers must be doing this, but it should reach all corners of the country," Modi added.


Schools need to focus on experiential learning and discovery-based learning to make education practical and holistic, PM Modi said, adding that, as per the NEP, the foundational learning will get an impetus, and it will be taken up as a mission, so that language and arithmetic skills get honed early.
