Haryana government has set a goal of NEP implementation for 2025, KU has implemented it in this session

Manohar Lal Khattar, chief minister, Haryana stated there is a need need to re-write ‘our nation’s history and free it from the prejudices and distortions’ of western historians. “Our past was glorious and it needs to be taught in its true spirit to our younger generation,” he said

“Many attempts over the past 70 years could not free India’s education policy from the Lord Macaulay’s system of education until the National Education Policy 2020 which has the soul of the country’s culture and tradition,” Khattar added while launching the implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP) at the Kurukshetra University (KU).

Human resources and citizenry play an important role in the progress of a nation, he added.

Congratulating the university for implementing the NEP in its true spirit as per UGC guidelines from the 2022 session, he further said the NEP lays the foundation of “New India” as it is based on a holistic approach.

“It covers significant aspects like holistic, multidisciplinary and futuristic education, quality research, and use of online technology for better reach in education. The NEP will certainly pave the way for making India a Vishvaguru once again and leading the world towards peace, sustainable prosperity and brotherhood,” he said.

He further mentioned that the NEP 2020 is primarily focused on producing quality human resource with modern outlook and firm faith in Indian cultural and moral values. KU Vice Chancellor Som Nath Sachdeva stated that the institution is the first university in the state to implement the NEP with a defined structure template and detailed curricula in its undergraduate programmes on its on-campus colleges.

Sachdeva added although the Haryana government has set a goal of NEP implementation for 2025, KU has implemented it in this session itself.
