GNDU VC Jaspal Singh Sandhu, while presiding over a meeting of the academic council, said under the NEP, there would be many changes that have been formulated by eminent educationists keeping in view the global scenario and to benefit students. The university has also constituted a council to achieve the target to implement the policy well in time.
