The University Grants Commission (UGC) has asked the higher education institutions across the country to submit their feedback and suggestions regarding the implementation of the new National Education Policy (NEP) 2020. Institutions can submit their suggestions and feedback on NEP 2020 by October 4, through the MyGov portal, the UGC stated.
An official statement, added, “As a part of the consultation process, an outline of the implementation plan covering the actionable points and associated activities as envisioned in the NEP 2020 document has been prepared.”
The statement also added, “The Government of India is using the MyGov platform for inviting suggestions from the stakeholders on the outline of implementation plan on NEP 2020. Discussion on outline of the implementation plan on NEP 2020 is now live on MyGov portal at link: https://innovateindia.mygov.in/nep2020-citizen.”
In a separate letter to institutions, UGC has discussed the need for creating an environment that fosters equal treatment for engagement of gender champions in educational institutions across the country. UGC has asked institutions for a “swift implementation” of the guidelines for gender champions.
Meanwhile, the UGC had earlier stated that the delayed academic session for freshers in universities and colleges will begin from November 1, and the winter break this year, the summer vacation in 2021 and other holidays would be curtailed to compensate for the time lost.
As per the revised calendar, the admission process for first year students needs to be completed by October 31 and classes for the first semester should commence by November 1.
