“In the context of the new education policy, now is not the time to think, but time to implement it. We all have to move in that direction,” Bhupendrasinh Chudasama said, adding that the education policy has considered the totality of secondary and higher education.




State Education Minister Bhupendrasinh Chudasama on Friday said that all universities in Gujarat have been asked to constitute a “National Education Policy Implementation Committee” for the speedy implementation of the policy,

A separate committee should also be formed to study the new education policy per chapter, the education minister directed the vice-chancellors of state universities during an online meeting held on Friday.

As the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, which provides clear guidelines in the field of education and personality building, has been promulgated and received formal approval from the Government of India, Chudasama called upon the vice-chancellors to work out a clear framework for the implementation of NEP.

“The universities should expedite the implementation of the new national education policy by forming a new education policy implementation committee and prepare a roadmap for its implementation,” Chudasama directed the V-Cs followed by discussions during the meeting.

The minister also asked to organise an online workshop to make the implementation result-oriented.
