Union Ministry of Education on Monday said that it would soon release details of the implementation plan of National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. 

NEP 2020, which covers wider spectrum of school education from pre-primary to senior secondary, is the third in the series of National Education Policies (1968 and 1986 modified in 1992) in India and is the first education policy of the 21st century. 

The recommendations given have varied timelines as the policy is made for next 20 years. Therefore, the implementation of NEP is being carried out in a phased manner, the ministry stated.

To achieve the goals and objectives of NEP 2020, it said the DoSEL has prepared a draft implementation plan with Task lists linking each recommendation with tasks, responsible agencies to carry out the task, timelines and outputs. 

The document is being finalised and will be released shortly.

The major portions of NEP will be covered under the new National Curriculum Framework (NCF) and centrally sponsored schemes. Groundwork for NCF is initiated and it is likely to be developed in the next academic session i.e. 2021-22.

The ministry also said that the States and UTs were constituting their own Task Force to steer implementation of NEP provisions in their respective jurisdiction.
