Sector Specific Report (Education) l June 2021

The Central Government has started the nationwide implementation of the National Education Policy from June 2021. The policy is expected to be completely rolled out by 2035. In the first phase, the government is committed to implementing policy initiatives related to universities and colleges. To monitor the progress of these tasks, the Ministry of Education is setting up a live dashboard. The ministry will review the performance and progress of each task through this dashboard on a monthly and quarterly basis. The task involved in this first phase is generally related to the listing of ready-to-choose subject options in all undergraduate and post-graduate programs, credit bank system, and flexibility to choose multiple entry and exit options at the university level, etc. In the first year of implementation, Central Universities will work on the ministry’s guidelines to complete the identified tasks followed by state universities.
