New Delhi: The HRD ministry today said that it would accept suggestions and views on the New Education Policy (NEP) till August 16 instead of the earlier deadline of July 31.
“The last date for submitting views or suggestions has been extended up to 16th August, 2016,” the ministry said in a statement.
The HRD ministry has put on its website a gist of several recommendations made by the committee headed by former Cabinet Secretary T S R Subramanian on which it has sought comments.
The entire report has also been put on the website of the National University of Educational Planning and Administration (NUEPA).
Last week during the Question Hour in Rajya Sabha, HRD Minister Prakash Javadekar had also said that last date for getting suggestion on NEP has been extended.
“Suggestions were invited from all on it till July 31, but we want that all MPs should also make their suggestions on the draft policy and we would be ready to accept them till August 15,” Javadekar had told the Upper House.
