Former Goa Chief Minister and educationist Laxmikant Parsekar, who heads the 27-member-committee said that five different expert groups have been formed, who are working independently on the roadmap to anoint the implementation of NEP 2020.
He said that all the groups will be submitting their reports by this month end, after which the committee will meet to decide on the final report. Parsekar said that the final report will be ready by January, next year but considering the minute hiccups that may arise, the committee has decided to submit it by March 2021.
The NEP has divided the education into six different phases right from Foundation to doctorate studies, he said adding that the committee is likely to submit that at least one year of each of the phase should start from coming academic year so that the entire policy can be implemented in next 4-5 years.
