new education policy

The New Education Policy (NEP) has not only provided more freedom to the students but also democratized institutions, said former Delhi University Vice Chancellor Dinesh Singh on Wednesday.

He was speaking at the two-day international conference on Gandhi’s concept of education and the National Education Policy (2020) organised by SGT University at Teen Murti Bhawan, New Delhi.

On the first day of the conference, professors from various universities talked on the importance of Gandhi’s concept of education and explained how the National Education Policy would help India move forward.

The NEP is an integral part of India’s culture and the purpose of getting education is not only to get a job but to make it practical in life, Professor Dinesh Singh said.

In his address, Prof. Singh said education policy should be in the interest of the nation. The meaning of education is not to complicate the children but to make it easy for them, he said.

In NEP, the emphasis will be on changing the teachers training programme. In this regard, there has been a demand to recommend changes in training so that there should be good teachers from primary to higher level, he said.

Representatives from Delhi University, CCS University, Shiksha Sanskriti Uthan Nyas, IGNOU and others were present at the conference.

Speaking on NEP 2020, Dr Sachidanand Joshi, the member secretary, Indira Gandhi National Centre for Arts, said India needs dedicated teachers. The implementation of NEP is dependent on teachers of secondary, senior secondary and primary level teachers, he said.

Joshi said the current education system is package oriented and the current education policy has decolonized Indian society.

Apart from Singh and Joshi, Dr. Anand Prakash from DU, Prof. Pawan Sharma from CCS University and Dr. Atul Kothari from Shiksha Sanskriti Uthan Nyas also expressed their views on the NEP.

The conference was organised by SGT University in collaboration with Sanrachna Foundation and Shiksha Sanskriti Uthan Nyas. Day 2 of the event will see Vice Chancellors from various universities discuss other facets of the NEP.

At least 10 schools in Kanpur received threatening emails on Wednesday which triggered panic in the city. This comes after a number of such emails threatening schools and hospitals with bomb blasts in many cities across India, including Delhi were received. The emails have come through servers which are based in Russia.

According to reports, the emails threatened to blow up the schools. The district administration has rushed the bomb disposal squad to the schools in order to sanitise the premises. Joint Commissioner of Police Law and Order, Harish Chander said the police’s cyber cell is investigating the matter.

Speaking to the media, Chander said the Kanpur Police received information about a bomb threat to various schools. The cyber cell is investigating the matter. All officials have been instructed to monitor CCTV footage thoroughly to establish a link between this threat and previous bomb threats which were received by multiple schools, airports and hospitals.

He also urged parents not to a panic. On Tuesday, 8 schools in Bengaluru received emails threatening bomb blasts. Last week, the city’s popular hospital chain, St Philomena, received a bomb threat email. All these bomb threat emails later turned out to be hoaxes.

 Bhavan Bangalore School, Bengaluru Scottish School, Deeksha High School, Jain Heritage School, Chitrakoota School, Edify Schools, Giridhanva School and Gangothri International Public School were among those that received the threat email from the same domain, Beeble.com.

Delhi’s GTB Hospital, Deep Chand Bandhu Hospital, Hedgewar Hospital and Dada Dev Hospital also received bomb threats via email. The city’s administration scrambled bomb detection team, the bomb disposal squad, fire department and the local police to conduct searches. Over the last one month, Indira Gandhi International Airport, over 20 hospitals and more than 100 schools across Delhi-NCR region have received such threats, but all of them turned out to be hoaxes. On Monday, over 50 schools in Jaipur received similar bomb threat emails.

The National Testing Agency on Tuesday said the Common University Entrance Test (CUET)-UG 2024 scheduled for May 15 stands postponed for centres across Delhi due to unavoidable reasons. The exam in Delhi is going to be held on May 29.

Professor Mamidala Jagadesh Kumar spoke about the examination and said, due to unavoidable reasons, the 4 papers scheduled on 15 May in the Centres of Delhi have been rescheduled to 29 May 2024. He further added that the National Testing Agency has taken this decision in the best interest of the students. The revised admit cards will be issued. Exams have been cancelled in 258 centres in Delhi.

The announcement was made a few hours before the examination was scheduled to begin in 380 exam centers across India, including 26 outside India. The students and parents were disappointed as the cancellation of the examination was made at the last minute.

According to a public notice issued by the National Testing Agency, it is being informed to all the concerned candidates and stakeholders that due to unavoidable reasons, the test papers (Biology – 304, Chemistry -306, General Test – 501, English – 101) which had been scheduled on 15 May 2024 stand postponed for the candidates appearing in centres across Delhi only.

The notice further said that the examination scheduled for May 15 will be held in all other cities across the country, including in Gurugram, Ghaziabad, Noida, Faridabad and abroad. The National Testing Agency claimed that the reason behind this postponement is manpower issues caused due to the ongoing Lok Sabha elections. CUET UG is held at a large scale and NTA had selected many exam centres and invigilators are deployed for this process. However, they were facing issues in getting appropriate amount of invigilators in Delhi exam centres for the May 15 exam due to the ongoing Lok Sabha elections.
