The new National Education Policy (NEP) aims to reorient the education system towards meeting the needs of the 21st century by achieving the twin objectives of inclusion and excellence, President Ram Nath Kovind said on Saturday.

Addressing the Visitors’ Conference on “Implementation of National Education Policy 2020 in Higher Education”, the President said the policy sets the vision of developing an equitable and vibrant knowledge society by providing quality education to all. “Higher education institutions have greater responsibility of making India a global knowledge superpower. The quality standards set as benchmark by these institutions would be followed by other institutions,” the President said.

He said the fundamental principles of the new policy include inculcating creativity and critical thinking. — PTI
