In order to make their education systems effective, different nations use a variety of stages throughout their life cycle at the school and college levels, taking tradition and culture into consideration. India's new educational system is envisioned in the National Education Policy 2020 (NEP 2020), which was approved by the Union Cabinet on July 29, 2020. The previous National Policy on Education, 1986, has been superseded by the new policy. The policy provides a comprehensive framework for vocational training, elementary through higher education, in both rural and urban India. By 2021, the policy intends to transform India's educational system. The government made it clear shortly after the policy was made public that no one would be required to learn any particular language and that English would continue to be used as the medium of instruction. The language strategy in NEP is a wide rule and warning in nature; and the implementation is up to the states, institutions, and schools. India's education is on the Concurrent List. Himachal Pradesh has turned into the main state to carry out New Instruction Strategy 2020. By 2022, all Indian schools should be adhering to the national education policy. Education contributes to social and economic progress, a country's school and college policies must be well-defined and futuristic.
