With all the negative things going on in the world today as a result of the issues brought on by the Covid-19 epidemic, the Government of India's New Education Policy (NEP 2020) has been warmly received as a change and a new news. Many people weren't expecting the NEP 2020 announcement. Many academic specialists had never anticipated many of the modifications which were included in the NEP 2020 proposal. The use of technology in education is also emphasised by the policy, with a focus on creating digital infrastructure, such as online learning environments and digital libraries. By investing in research infrastructure, encouraging collaborations between academics and industry, and giving the funding for research projects, this policy seeks to establish an environment that fosters research and innovation. This policy strives to widen educational access and provide students more freedom over when and how they learn. By fostering a more flexible and multidisciplinary approach, improving the use of technology, and encouraging research and innovation, the new 2020 education policy has the potential to transform higher education. However, its success will depend on efficient execution and cooperation between stakeholders, including legislators, educators, and students. Even though school and college education have both been impacted by the education policy, this article concentrates on NEP 2020 and its effects on higher education. This paper examines the NEP's main features as well as their impact on the current educational system. What is the National Education Policy 2020's stance on online/digital education? What initiatives does it recommend for ensuring equitable use of technology in education? Is it an efficient way in the current society of India?
