India’s education sector is going through a major transformation with the government announcing the National Education Policy (NEP) in 2020. After a long haul, the importance of early childhood learning has been realised, and the policy guidelines reflect that. According to the experts, the early education landscape forms the foundation for a self-reliant India, and therefore impacts the country’s economy.

Budget 2021: Edtech startups welcome focus on schools, training programmes; lament the lack of 'adequate' fund

From drawing up the legislation for a
Higher Education Commission of India to setting up a
Central University in Leh to strengthening 15,000 schools and creating
sainik schools as part of the National Education Policy (NEP 2020) implementation plan to the government's proposed
amendments to the Apprenticeship Act and the Rs 3,000-crore corpus allocated for it — most education-related announcements in the Budget have been dubbed "welcome" moves by startups.
However, many believe that Budget 2021 missed the opportunity to make big-ticket announcements (GST cuts, etc.), "adequate" fund allocation in education so as to fast-track the rollout of NEP, and other incentives critical to boost a pandemic-hit economy.

Union Budget 2021: Inadequate allocation for skilling, digital learning a concern
Despite the government’s stress on NEP, a 6.1 percent drop in total allocation for the Ministry of Education is considered baffling for the sector’s premier stakeholders
February 03, 2021 / 01:21 PM IST
At a time when the government is planning to formally begin the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP), 2020, with specific emphasis on upskilling and digital learning, the education sector was expecting a big increase in budgetary allocation this year, as compared to the previous budget.
Instead, what has come is a dampener. There is visible disappointment in the sector since the 6.1 percent drop in total allocation for the Ministry of Education at Rs 93,224 crore compared to Budget 2020, was announced. In the revised estimate of 2020-21, this stood at 9.5 percent higher.

While the National Education Policy 2020 aims to transform the school and higher education sector, Covid has brought online education to the forefront. Is Indian education headed for its brightest days?
[email protected]
For decades, the Indian education system has been plagued with issues. The National Education Policy 2020, which has come as a ray of hope, promises to overhaul it – by focusing on vocational learning, bringing in technologies such as AI, putting thrust on online learning, increasing the budgetary allocation for education to at least 6 per cent of GDP, etc. But the effective implementation of the policy remains doubtful.

UPDATED: September 11, 2020 20:19 IST
The new National Education Policy was approved on Wednesday and here's what education experts across India have to say about the many changes being brought in by NEP 2020.
The new National Education Policy (NEP) was approved by the Union Cabinet on Wednesday and it is the first such policy in the last 34 years. The NEP is ambitious and futuristic but much of its success will depend on how it is executed.
A panel headed by ISRO chief K Kasturirangan had submitted a draft NEP in December 2018, which was opened for public feedback after the Lok Sabha election in May 2019.

The National Education Policy 2020 that was cleared by Prime Minister Narendra Modi-led Cabinet on July 29 seeks to bring a sea change in the Indian education system and make the curriculum of schools and colleges more skill-oriented.
There will not only be a change in the way a student studies but also in the way examinations are conducted and the final assessment is provided. Also, there will be a lot more flexibility to choose subjects in schools and colleges.
However, concerns remain about how it will be implemented. Moneycontrol brings you voices from across the education industry:

Misbah Ansari, a student at Ambedkar University in New Delhi, stands near the door of her house in the Ajmeri Gate neighborhood, phone in hand. “Hello … hello, hello!” she shouts into it repeatedly. No luck. After a few minutes, Ansari gives up and messages me on WhatsApp: “Am facing network issue.”
It’s an issue that is increasingly defining India’s attempts at pivoting its massive education system — the second largest in the world after China’s — to a digital-only learning experience in the face of the coronavirus crisis. The country’s 1.5 million elementary and secondary schools and 52,000 colleges and universities have shut as part of a nationwide lockdown that started on March 24. Schools and colleges are expected to keep their campuses closed until at least June, even if the broader lockdown lifts earlier. Like their counterparts across the world, most Indian universities have started offering, or are planning to offer, online classes. Many public school systems in the country are also making the transition.

With the world’s youngest working population, India is expected to welcome 70 million people into its workforce by 2023. This demographic dividend, with equal participation from the female workforce, can become the driving force of India’s growth story if the young population is provided with the necessary training, education and support. In a country which values formal university degrees, employers report a discernible lack of experienced and employable candidates in a constantly evolving labour market. While the number of school drop-outs at the secondary and tertiary level has significantly risen in the past few years, more than 50 lakh students are now enrolled in vocational training courses across the country under government or private institutions.
