'Kasturirangan said the NEP 2020 provides an integrated yet flexible approach towards education and gives importance to holistic, multi-disciplinary education.'

"K Kasturirangan, chairman of the committee that drafted the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020, on Thursday said the vision of India's new education system is to ensure that it touches each and every citizen's life and creates a just and equitable society.

'In the modern-day social and economic landscape, this age-old Indian concept is now finding recognition in a new form.
