HRD Ministry Has Been Renamed & New Education Police Has Been Approved


  • New Education policy approved by Union Cabinet
  • The Human Resource and Development Ministry has been renamed as the Education Ministry
  • The draft of NEP was submitted by the former Chief of ISRO

The Union Cabinet, On Wednesday, has approved the new National Education Policy (NEP). Additionally, the Human Resource and Development Ministry has also been renamed as the Education Ministry, officials said.

A panel which was led by the ex-Chief of the Indian Space Research Organisation (ISRO) K Kasturirangan submitted the draft of the new National Education Policy to the Union Human Resource Development Minister, Ramesh Pohhriyal “Nishank” when he took charge of the office last year.

The draft was then put on a public domain to get feedback from several stakeholders and even received more than 2,00,000 suggestions to the HRD Ministry for the same.

A senior official from the HRD Ministry said, “The policy draft has been approved. The Ministry has been renamed as Education Ministry,”.

The current NEP was framed back in 1986 and was revised in 1992. The new education policy was the part of the manifesto of the Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP) ahead of the 2014 general elections.

The drafting experts took the report of a panel into consideration which was headed by the ex-Cabinet Secretary T S R Subramanian and formed by the Union HRD Ministry when it was headed by then Union Minister Smriti Irani.
