New Delhi: Addressing the webinar on Implementation of National Education Policy organized by PHD Chamber of Commerce and Industry, experts stressed that availability of adequate funds will be critical for implementation of the well documented National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Therefore, educational institutions should be allowed to make reasonable profit as this will not only make them sustainable but will also make the system both clean and transparent. Experts underlined the need for training of teachers. They shared that there is need to focus on quality of research in the country because 96% of Research Papers submitted by Indian students are rejected due to poor quality.
Moderating the Session, Mr Vikas Gupta, Managing Director, Wiley India said that the New Education Policy of 2020 brought out after 34 years will revolutionize the education sector and align it to the development and industry needs. He added that the emphasis on multidisciplinary education, Liberal arts, flexible curricula and multiple entry and exit options in degree courses, is highly encouraging. NEP 2020 creates a model to connect education with industry 4.0. Opening of higher education space for foreign universities will bring Indian Education System at par with other countries and will benefit students.
