Innovative education policy is essential for a country at the academic level because education leads to economic and social progress. Different countries endorse numerous education systems by adopting various stages during their life cycle at the school and college levels to make them effective. The National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), which was approved by the Union Cabinet of India on July 29, 2020, outlines the concept of India’s new education system. The new policy rebuilds the previous National Policy on Education from 1986. The policy is a comprehensive framework for elementary education, higher education, and vocational education training in rural and urban India. The policy aims to transform India’s education system by 2021. Shortly after the release of the policy, the government clarified that no one will be forced to study any language and that the medium of instruction will not be shifted from English to any regional language. The language policy in NEP is a broad guideline and advisory in nature and it is up to the states, institutions, and schools to decide on the implementation. Education in India is a concurrent list subject. Himachal Pradesh has become the first state to implement the New Education Policy 2020. The national education policy should be implemented in all schools in India by 2022.
