At present, the Govt. of India imposed New Education Policy (NEP), 2020 nationwide. The view of NEP, 2020 is to take care of our children from the early childhood period (i.e., from 3 yrs.) and make them experts in their interesting subjects. This policy also emphasizes both teachers and students use technology for gaining and application of knowledge in different fields, thereby, providing emphasis on self-dependent and self-employed. 

It is hoped that these steps of NEP, 2020 will help to strengthen the economy of the Nation and introduce ourselves to the World as a technologically advanced and wise Indian citizens.

So, all conscious Indian citizens should try to understand the initiative and effort of NEP, 2020, and come forward to co-operate with the Govt. of India.

I wish the best fortune, peace, and prosperity to all those who contribute to the noble task of spreading education and manifest qualities, aims, and objectives.
