Dr. Sandeep Sancheti briefed the overarching vision and comprehensive framework of NEP 2020 for both school and higher education. Further, he mostly narrated the impacts of NEP2020 as a new regulator proposed for higher education with separate verticals for regulation, standard-setting, accreditation, and funding. He informed the NEP2020 would absorb arts and science, technical and teacher knowledge into its fold, replace several existing regulatory bodies, and ensure a level playing field for public and private players. He added this new educational policy is mainly student-centric and highly flexible. For students, the most meaningful change may be introducing four-year undergraduate degrees, with options for entry and exit at various stages, a credit transfer system, and abolishing the M Phil program. He insisted about the target for policy to transform the education system is about 15-20 years. The National Testing Agency will introduce a pilot version of the common entrance test, used for admission to all Institute of Eminences (IoEs) and central universities in 2021. A fruitful query clearing session started at 3 PM and he politely and confidently answered all the participants' questions with correct essential information. He thanked all the participants and requested to supply valuable suggestions for the improvement of the NEP2020. The event concluded by thanking the keynote speaker, Nodal Officer, panel members, students, teachers, and parents. Weblink for Livestream recordings of NEP2020 Awareness Program:
