Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal ‘Nishank’ and West Bengal Governor Jagdeep Dhakhar also attended the convocation.
Last year, the government replaced a 34-year-old National Policy on Education, framed in 1986, with the New Education Policy of 2020. Some of the biggest highlights of the NEP 2020 are, 1) a single regulator for higher education institutions, 2) multiple entry and exit options in degree courses, 3) discontinuation of MPhil programmes, 4) low stakes board exams, 5) common entrance exams for universities.
