Lauding the National Education Policy 2020, eminent educationist K Kasturirangan said the NEP 2020 aims to transform India into a knowledge society with special focus on high quality of research work. K Kasturirangan was also the chairman of the committee who drafted NEP 2020.
The NEP was drafted after a gap of 34 years by the BJP-led Modi government.
Addressing the inaugural episode of E-content production on NEP by the Instructional Media Centre (IMC) of Maulana Azad National Urdu University, Kasturirangan expressed his views.
Appreciating the efforts by MANUU to develop e-content on NEP, Kasturirangan said the University’s plan to create a video library was certainly a very important, critical and probably an imperative step, moving towards implementation of the NEP 2020 in the near future.
“NEP is the need of the hour. It is not just reading of the document, but understanding, analyzing, interpreting and getting a picture of it several steps we need to put together,” he said.
Kasturirangan also highlighted the important features of the policy, which include flexibility, interconnectivity and religious diversity, among others, the release said.
