“The purpose of education is to make good human beings with skill and expertise…”
– Dr. A.P.J Abdul Kalam
India’s education system has long been criticized for its emphasis on memorization, outdated curriculum, and limited opportunities for research and innovation.
In that backdrop, the National Education Policy 2022 is a welcome move that seeks to address the long-standing gaps in the education system and provide holistic and multidisciplinary education to students, right from the elementary grades to higher education.

The benefits of this scheme will be seen in a few years and then it will become successful.”
