The NEP 2020 was formulated in August 2020 to bring about complete reforms to the Indian Education System after 35 years.  

The NEP Booklet was launched by the Union Minister for Education Mr. Dharmendra Pradhan in the virtual event. The minister also applauded the Government of Karnataka for its efforts towards implementation of NEP 2020.
