NEW DELHI: The Union education minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ today launched the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 implementation plan for schools, ‘Students’ and Teachers’ Holistic Advancement through Quality Education’ or SARTHAQ. Pokhriyal today chaired a high-level meeting on the implementation of the NEP 2020. The department of school education and literacy has developed SARTHAQ, said a statement from the education ministry.

As per the statement, the plan keeps in mind the concurrent nature of education and adheres to the spirit of federalism. “States and UTs are given the flexibility to adapt this plan with local contextualization and also modify as per their needs and requirements. This implementation plan delineates the roadmap and way forward for implementation of NEP, 2020 for the next 10 years, which is very important for its smooth and effective implementation,” it says.

Speaking on the occasion, Pokhriyal said that the plan is interactive, flexible and inclusive. The major focus of SARTHAQ is to define goals and set deadlines. It links the recommendations of the NEP with 297 ‘tasks’ along with responsible agencies, timelines and 304 outputs of these tasks.

The statement further says: “Attempt has also been made to propose activities in a manner, such that it will be built upon the existing structure rather than creating new structures. Thus, SARTHAQ takes care of the spirit and intent of the Policy and is planned to be implemented in a phased manner.”
