The Parliament Standing Committee on Education, headed by  MP Vivek Thakur, tabled a report during the special session of Parliament on the “Implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP), 2020 in Higher Education.”

What’s in the report

  •  The report looked at the features of the NEP’s implementation in the higher education sector and the progress made so far.

  • 6% of students in Central educational institutions, stressing the importance of States in providing higher education.

Key Issues in NEP

  • Limited access to higher education in socio-economically disadvantaged areas.

  • Rigid separation of disciplines.

  • Lack of higher education institutes (HEIs) that teach in local languages.

  • The limited number of experienced faculty.

  • Lack of institutional autonomy.

  • Regulatory system and low standards of undergraduate education.

Recommendation for NEP

  • Panel recommends to earmark the suitable funds for the education of Socially and Economically Disadvantaged Groups (SEDGs).

  •  Enhancing gender balance in admissions to HEIs.

  • Providing more financial assistance and scholarships to SEDGs in both public and private HEIs.

  • Increasing employability potential of higher education programmes.

  • Developing more degree courses taught in regional languages and bilingually.

  • Specific infrastructural steps to help physically challenged students.

  • Strict enforcement of all no-discrimination and anti-harassment rules.

Funding Suggestions

  • Panel asked Higher Education Funding Agency(HEFA) to diversify its funding sources beyond government allocations.

  • Explore partnerships with private sector organisations, philanthropic foundations, and international financial institutions. 

  • Adjusting the interest rates on loans provided to make them more competitive and affordable.

Concerns about the MEME system 

  • Indian institutions are currently facing many issues in multiple entry are multiple exit(MEME).

  • MEME should be more flexible as western institutions.

  • Its very difficult to predict how students will make use of MEME.

  • Since institutions would not know the in- and out-traffic, it will certainly disturb the pupil-teacher ratio.
