Union Education and Skill Development Minister, Shri Dharmendra Pradhan had an extensive consultation on taking further steps for the formulation of Higher Education Commission of India (HECI).
“HECI should ensure employability, job creation and global outlook. It should ensure global academic standards and provide more academic autonomy to the higher education institutions,” Shri Pradhan said during the meeting,
He further added that this important recommendation of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 would be one of the many steps in the direction of decolonisation of education system of the country.
