Pradhan praised CBSE authorities for successfully conducting grade 10 and 12 board exams in offline mode

The Centre is working with the West Bengal government to implement the National Education Policy (NEP) in the state, Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Education Minister stated. “I am not sure for what reason one will be against the NEP 2020. It is employment-generating, modern and contemporary. In the last two years, we got great feedback from all stakeholders,” he said when asked about certain issues raised by the West Bengal government.

Pradhan mentioned that the Centre and the state government were holding regular talks and if there is any gap, they are ironing those out.

The state government recently formed a 10-member committee to examine NEP, and assess the need for a state-level policy on education.

State Education Minister Bratya Basu had stated that the committee will scrutinise various aspects of the policy. “The state will then formulate its response to the NEP as education is on the concurrent list,” Basu had said.

Meanwhile, Pradhan praised CBSE authorities for successfully conducting grade 10 and 12 board exams in offline mode after two years, and publishing the results within 45 days.

“I am also happy with the results that girls outperformed boys in both 10 and 12 grades,” he said.
