Speaking on the occasion, Prof SP Bansal said the NEP will revolutionize the education setup in the country. He called upon the teachers to play a leading role in the implementation of NEP. He said that the policy not only has taken care of the students but also looks into the training needs of the faculty. Prof Bansal said that the teaching fraternity would need to update their skills because they have to train the students.
Dr. Parvinder Kaushal, said that we have to take pride in our regional languages and need to inculcate that pride in everyone. He urged the teachers to try teaching in Hindi or regional languages in subjects where it was possible so that the same knowledge could be transferred on to the younger generations. Dr. Kaushal was of the opinion that the teachers must read the policy documents so that others can also be made aware of its benefits. He lauded several landmark decisions like the creation of the academic bank credit system and the multiple entry-exit systems.
