The New Education Policy 2020 provides a foundational construct for the development of India. It provides a holistic interface for a transformed India, an "Aatmanirbhar Bharat" continuously progressing and marching. Multidisciplinary and technology focused education, based on imparting life skills while being rooted in India ethos, forms the core of the policy. Towards this end, comprehensive reforms in the education system entailing pedagogical and curricular restructuring, formulation of a robust knowledge network and efficient resourcing and effective governance are entailed. Special emphasis has been laid out under the policy, for the historically unrepresented sections of the society (in education) namely Socio-Economically Disadvantaged Groups (SEDGs). In this context, this paper undertakes a thematic study of NEP 2020 recommendations for SEDGs.
