The Human Resource Development Ministry headed by Union Minister Prakash Javadekar is all set to revamp panel that was earlier formed by former HRD Minister Smriti Irani before finalising the new education policy. The panel that was formed by Irani was headed by ex-bureaucrat TSR Subramanian. Prakash Javadekar took over the MHRD in July 2016 when Smriti Irani was shifted to the Textile Ministry. The report that was filed by Subramanian’s panel in 2016 will now be taken as an input for the next report that will be filed by the new panel. Scientists Goverdhan Mehta and M A Mashelkar, former VC of Pune University Professor Ram Takwale, former UGC chairman Arun Nigavekar and former VC of Maulana Azad National Urdu University Professor Talat Aziz are being considered for the panel according to a report in Indian Express.
