M Jagadesh Kumar, vice-chancellor of Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), praised Prime Minister Narendra Modi's announcement of an academic bank of credit scheme on Thursday. The Delhi University Teachers' Association (DUTA) has criticised the idea, claiming that it will result in degrees being diluted.
Mr Kumar stated that the university "would endeavour to implement and take advantage of NEP 2020 in reforming education" as a "top educational institute in India."
"The prime minister unveiled a number of initiatives today, ahead of his talk on "Transformative Reforms under NEP" on the one-year anniversary of NEP 2020. These are the forerunners of India's educational transformation ". In higher education, the Academic Bank of Credit (ABC) plan will assist students in carving out their own learning route to get academic qualifications according to their time preferences and mobility across fields and Higher Education Institutes (HEIs). It will benefit not only students, but also working individuals who want to improve their abilities by gaining access to high-quality education offered in a variety of formats.
He stated that digital education will become the norm in the Indian education sector and that the National Digital Education Architecture (NDEAR) will assist educational institutions in teaching, learning, planning, administration, and governance in order to make education open, inclusive, and accessible.
Delhi University announced in a tweet, "The University of Delhi took part in the "One Year of National Education Policy 2020" celebration. Academic programmes in Higher Education Institutions are welcomed by DU."
