National Education Policy will be Drafted by Month-End

Policy Indications

Nagpur: Union minister Satya Pal Singh  declared that the national education policy will be drafted and submitted to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (HRD) by March 31. 

The main focus of the policy will be on the role of mother tongue in education and continuation of three-language formula.

The five-member committee headed by former Indian Space Research Organisation head K Kasturirangan, tasked with preparing the draft, had not asked for any extension, and will submit it most probably by March 31, Singh said.

"The new education policy will be basically focusing on accessibility, equity, affordability, accountability and creating skilled manpower," he said.


Singh said that the key focus will be on the issue of introduction of mother tongue in primary education, and whether to continue the three-language formula of the Kothari commission.
