Friends, in this episode few days ago the new education policy of the country has been announced The policy of the 21st century the youth of thinking, their needs, their hopes, expectations and aspirations to see the making of the wider effort has to. 5 years from all over the country in its every point on the Comprehensive Debate and Discussions that each level on the, then This policy has been made after going .

The true meaning of the whole of India , the country of dreams , the country 's future generation of hope Akanshao to your in boasts the new India 's education policy did have. In every region, in every state of the scholars of ideas to contain the was is. So it 's just not a Document Policy is but 130 million of There is also Reflection of Aspirations of more Indians .

Colleagues, you have your choice to see will, today too many children to think is that they have similar theme as the basis to judge the turns in which his interest is not it. Parents , the relatives , the friends , the whole environment pressure that is so that others choose the Subjects read seem to have. This approach The country to very large population that reported that educated you are, but what he read is that most of his work did not come. Degrees to dig the post also that your you in an incomplete feeling that is. Then within confidence born to be, which come Confidence must, his loss he felt that Is Its influence his whole life on the Journey to do is.

Peers, New Education Policy of the medium from the same approach to change is attempted be happening is, before the shortcomings of the far the going is is. India 's education system has now sisatemika reform, education of Intent and Content, both on to Transform the effort is.


The 21st century is the era of knowledge. This is the time to increase focus on: Learning, Research, Innovation. And, this is exactly what India's National Education Policy, 2020 does. This Policy wants to make your School, College and University experience: Fruitful Broad-based. One that guides you to your natural passions.

Friends, You are among the best and brightest of India. This Hackathon is not the first problem you have tried to solve. Nor is this the last. I want you, and youngsters like you not to stop doing three things: Learning, Questioning, Solving.

When you learn, you get the wisdom to question. When you question, you get out-of-the-box methods to solve problems. When you do that, you grow. Due to your effort, our nation grows. Our planet prospers .

Friends, India's National Education Policy reflects these spirits. We are shifting from: The burden of the school bag, which does not last beyond school. To the boon of learning which helps for life. From simply memorizing to critical thinking. For years, the limitations of the system had an adverse effect on the lives of students. No longer! The National Education Policy reflects the aspirations of young India. It is not process centric, It is people centric and future centric.

Friends, Among the most exciting things of the Policy is the emphasis on inter-disciplinary study. This concept has been gaining popularity. And, rightly so. One size does not fit all. One subject does not define who you are. There are no limits to discovering something new. Human history has many examples of stalwarts who have excelled in diverse areas. Be it Aryabhata, Leonardo da Vinci, Helen Keller, Gurudev Tagore. Now, we have done away with some traditional boundaries between arts, science, commerce. If someone is interested, they can learn: Maths and Music together, or Coding and Chemistry together. This will ensure the focus is on what the student wants to learn. Rather than what the student is expected to, by society. Inter-disciplinary studies gives you control. In the process, it also makes you flexible.

In the National Education Policy, Flexibility has been given great importance. There are provisions for multiple entry and exits. No one way streets for a student. The Under-Graduate experience can either be a three or four year journey. Students will enjoy the advantages of an Academic Bank of Credit, which will store all the academic credits acquired. These can be transferred and counted in the final degree. Such flexibility was long needed in our education system. I am happy the National Education Policy has addressed this aspect .

Friends, National Education Policy is big on access to education starting from primary education. In Higher Education, the aim is to increase Gross Enrolment Ratio to 50 percent by 2035. Other efforts be it Gender Inclusion Fund, Special Education Zones, options for Open and Distance Learning will also help.

Colleagues, our Constitution the chief architect of our country 's great educators Baba Saheb Ambedkar say was that education that should be that all of the access to be, all the to access it. These education policies, their this idea to be dedicated to. The Education Policy, Job seekers to make Job Creators rather than on force also is. Ie one Types of these in our Mindset, our approach to the reforms to the effort is. The policy to focus in similar self- young of building to which it decided to prevent that to him Job 's Service to do or even become Entrepreneur 's.

Friends, Language has always been sensitive subject in our country This is a big reason why it is that we here local language of their recent on the left have been, it flourish and further grow the very chance at had. Now education policy in which the changes brought to you, that India 's languages further Will grow, they will have more development The Indian 's knowledge of the increasingly as India 's unity to also increasingly. Our Indian languages in much the same rich compositions are, for centuries the knowledge , the experience is, in all now , and expand it. This world is also India 's rich languages to introduce it. And lot Big advantage it would be to students of his early years in his own language in learning to get.
