This Policy wants to make your school, college and university experience:Fruitful, Broad-based,One that guides you to your natural passions: PM Modi

India’s National Education Policy reflects this spirit. We are shifting from:The burden of the school bag, which does not last beyond school.To the boon of learning which helps for life. From simply memorising to critical thinking: PM Modi
Among the most exciting things of the Policy is the emphasis on inter-disciplinary study. This concept has been gaining popularity.And, rightly so. One size does not fit all. One subject does not define who you are: PM Modi
This will ensure the focus is on what the student wants to learn. Rather than what the student is expected to do by society.Inter-disciplinary studies gives you control. In the process, it also makes you flexible : PM Modi
National Education Policy is big on access to education.Starting from primary education.In Higher Education, the aim is to increase Gross Enrolment Ratio to 50 percent by 2035: PM Narendra Modi.
