As a part of Teacher’s Day celebrations, the University Grants Commission (UGC) has released a notification asking the Vice-Chancellors of all the universities and colleges to conduct webinars with regard to the National Education Policy 2020. The Education Ministry has stated that the webinar will be helpful in generating awareness on NEP among the teachers and other stakeholders.
The National Education Policy 2020 has made way for a transformational reform in School and Higher Education. The UGC has thus asked the universities to highlight the role of teachers this year in the celebrations across the university and colleges.
The University Grants Commission has also asked the universities to conduct the programme following the guidelines issued by the government. The programmes can also be conducted through video conferencing wherein the retired teachers can also be honoured.
The UGC has recently asked the universities across the country to begin the provisional admission process for the undergraduate and postgraduate programme for the 2020-21 academic year. The admission process for the Undergraduate and Postgraduate courses was conducted on August 31, 2020, and the commission has asked the colleges to complete the provisional allotment until September 30, 2020.
