New education policy will inspire youth to become self-reliant: President Ramnath Kovind

New Delhi: President Ramnath Kovind, while addressing the nation on National Education Policy today, said that after considering the extensive participation of 2.5 lakh gram panchayats, more than 12,500 local bodies and about 675 districts and more than 2 lakh suggestions, the National Education Policy has been prepared. Curiosity has always been encouraged in our traditions. Curiosity is given more importance than 'Jigisha' (desire to win by debate or argument).

He said that "I am happy that in the All India Survey of Higher Education 2018-19, the percentage of women is slightly more than men. However, the share of female students in institutions of national importance and technical education is less than men. This needs to be fixed. I believe that the National Education Policy will prove to be a milestone in the history of our country. This will not only strengthen the future of our youth but will also inspire our country to be self-reliant".

According to the media report, the President said that the NEP wants to end the process of getting students beaten up for marks or grades. It seeks to promote critical thinking and a sense of inquiry. India was a globally respected education centre in ancient times. The universities of Taxila and Nalanda had a prestigious status. But today India's higher education institutions do not have a high position in the global ranking.
