Expert Panel Submits Report on New Education Policy

A government appointed committee headed by former Cabinet Secretary TSR Subramanian has submitted its report for the evolution of a New Education Policy, the HRD Ministry said on Friday.

The HRD Ministry had undertaken a consultation process for framing a New Education Policy (NEP) and this process included online, grassroots and national level thematic deliberations on 33 themes.

The Committee examined a large body of outcome documents, recommendations and suggestions received and also had several meetings with various stakeholders and undertook field visits to educational institutions.

The HRD Ministry said the bottom up consultative process across nearly all gram panchayats, blocks, urban local bodies and districts of all 36 states and UTs was undertaken between May to October 2015.

Thematic consultations were conducted both by the ministry and also by institutions like UGC , AICTE , NCTE , NCERT and several universities and autonomous bodies.
