  1. Ok it is nice.What about implementation?We have no higher level Officers in Education Dept.GOI is supposed to take initiation to have “Indian Educational Service” like IAS,IPS,IFS etc.Then only our edn.system will be run in a specific way

  2. I am in 10th this year, so can I mix and match my stream in 11th? (Taking physics with arts) Or will this be implemented later?

    1. The New Education policy would be implemented from the academic session 2022 – 2023, since you will be attending class XI in year 2021, you won’t be able to avail the opportunity of NEP 2020

  3. I was doing B.Arch (2013 – 2018) – but left in 2016 after completing 3 years . Am I eligible for any Diploma or Certificate as per New education Policy.

    1. Yes you can, subject to approval from the institute you are applying. But that would only be possible from academic session 2022 -23 onwards.
