Overview of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 was approved by India’s Union Cabinet on July 29, 2020. It lays out India’s new educational system’s vision. The NEP2020 replaces the previous NEP1986, and it establishes a wide framework for elementary, secondary, and higher education, as well as vocational training, in both rural and urban parts of India. Furthermore, the initiative aspires to reform India’s education system by 2040.

How Can India's Higher Education Be Transformed By NEP 2020?

The National Education Policy (NEP) 2020’s purpose and vision is to strengthen India’s higher education system. Its goal is to establish an India-centric education system that adds to our country’s image as a global education hub by implementing high-quality education standards.

How India's education system could be transformed by the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020:

India is encouraging foreign universities to establish campuses in the country. First and foremost, the NEP2020 aims to encourage international universities to establish higher education campuses in India. The question now is: how can international universities contribute to India’s higher education future? To promote India as a worldwide study destination, the NEP2020 aspires to provide opportunities for top-performing Indian universities to establish campuses in foreign countries and for international universities to establish campuses in India.

According to the NEP 2020, if all goes according to plan, Harvard, Oxford, and Princeton will be located in Hyderabad, Kolkata, and Mumbai, respectively, while top Indian universities such as Geeta University will be located in foreign nations. This flow of ideas and resources benefits not only the Indian economy, but also the country’s higher education.
