The Ministry of Human Resource Development has actually relabelled as Ministry of Education, based on the draft suggestions of the New Education Policy, 2020. The official news is most likely to be made by I&B priest Prakash Javadekar and also the education and learning priest Ramesh Pokhriyal later on in the day when they launch the New Education Policy.
It is worth noting that the Ministry of Human Resource Development was called education ministry before 26 September 1985, when PV Narasimha Rao became the first HRD minister in the Rajiv Gandhi Cabinet. Subsequently, the next year, 1986, the New Education Policy was introduced.
The Union Cabinet, meanwhile, has given its approval to the New Education Policy. The new academic session, which is most likely to begin in September-October this year after delay due to the ongoing COVID-19 lockdown, will see the introduction of the new education and learning policy.
According to Hindustan Times, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had reviewed the brand-new plan on May 1. The draft of the plan was prepared by a panel of specialists led by previous Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) primary K Kasturirangan.
