The new education policy is certainly being considered as the topmost announcement of 2020. The policy has come up with several features and recommendations. The New Educational Policy or NEP 2020 is linked with a personal success story and also with an educational mystery in the form of agencies like the University Grant Commission.
The features introduced by NEP 2020 could have been adopted by any central university without reading the guidelines. The central universities hold all the requisite powers to adopt and implement all the changes as featured under NEP 2020.
NEP 2020 Indicates Failure of UGC
There is not one but two compelling reasons to prove why Indian University’s lagged and couldn’t implement what NEP is trying to accomplish. The foremost reason is the lack of efficiency and planning by the University grant commission which did not put much effort into betterment.
During the past years, all kinds of feeble and strange authorities and powers have been granted to UGC which run against the seeds of powers of Universities. Even the crucial decisions like the conduct of examination during the coronavirus situation are not in the hands of Universities. The UGC guidelines do impart that our Universities do not have the required knowledge and wisdom to take such decisions on their own.
Prominent Universities across the globe have taken decisions for the commencement of exams as per their feasibility. However, the Indian Universities have not been given powers to take such decisions.
The Fault in our Universities
Some part of the responsibility lies with Indian Universities as well. There must be some mark set to place measures and processes that assures the high-standards and leaderships for Indian Universities. The NEP 2020 will bring no significant change if the implementation of the policy is adhered to properly. Indian teachers teaching in Indian Universities might turn out to be the biggest challenge as the teachers have been taught and following the same old standards.
A Significant Accomplishment
Formulation of effective policies is equivalent to winning half the battle while the rest half is won on accomplishing those goals. The features of new education policies pertaining to higher education are more like a replica of the four-year undergraduate program followed at Delhi University. If these policies will be executed in a precise manner, it will definitely ensure substantial all-round improvement.
The strengthened version of the FYUP program is offered at CIC which has to remain impenetrable to the invasions of the University Grant Commission (UGC).
Cluster Innovation Centre – A success story
The pass out students of the cluster innovation center are already flying their wings high. The students of CIC have not just grabbed high packages in the top corporates including google but have also come out as top entrepreneurs. CIC not focuses just on theoretical knowledge rather it believes in providing practical knowledge to students. Students at CIC are not taught to become corporate employees but are trained to start different successful ventures.
If NEP 2020 is implemented properly, it is expected to bring significant yet great outcomes that will directly empower higher education.
