What do multiple exit options in degrees mean?

The undergraduate degree will be of either 3 or 4-year duration, with multiple exit options, as informed by the Education Ministry. After completing one year, a student will get a certificate in a discipline or field including vocational and professional areas, a diploma if a student leaves after 2 years of study, or a Bachelor’s degree after a 3-year programme. The 4-year multidisciplinary Bachelor's programme, however, shall be the preferred option and will give degree with research if a student has pursued a project along with it.

Higher education institutes to be divided into further categories

Research-intensive Universities. Those that place greater emphasis on teaching but still conduct significant research i.e. Teaching-intensive Universities. Autonomous degree-granting College (AC) will refer to a large multidisciplinary that grants undergraduate degrees and is primarily focused on undergraduate teaching though it would not be restricted to that.

By 2030, one large multidisciplinary college in every district
By 2040, all higher education institutions (HEIs) shall aim to become multidisciplinary institutions, each of which will aim to have 3,000 or more students. There shall, by 2030, be at least one large multidisciplinary HEI in or near every district. The aim will be to increase the Gross Enrolment Ratio in higher education including vocational education from 26.3% (2018) to 50% by 2035.

NEP to follow three-language formulae, Sanskrit to be mainstreamed
Sanskrit will be mainstreamed with strong offerings in school - including as one of the language options in the three-language formula - as well as in higher education. Sanskrit Universities too will move towards becoming large multidisciplinary institutions of higher learning.

Multilingual education

Will NEP be an India-centric policy
The current HRD Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal Nishank had in several media addresses claimed that NEP will be an India-centric policy which will join the Indian youth with the latest education as well as Indian roots. He had said earlier that NEP will be about ‘gyan, vigyan, anusandhan, vichar, sanskar’ - which can be roughly translated in English as - 'knowledge, science, research, ideas, and tradition'

What is NEP and what changes are ahead for Indian education system?

NEP suggestions: School System to be changed into three stages
The draft National Education Policy (NEP) had made several suggestions. One of them was to change the school education system to 5+3+3+4 format.

Maybe you heard it wrong. Regional language is compulsory till class 5, not Hindi. No one can impose Hindi compulsory sitting in Delhi.
I heard Hindi- which is good for national integration. There was no indication that they will dilute that. Besides- what you're saying is happening already.

We dont need any national integration using a language. Let every language have equal importance
Those questions are already settled as per RSS guiding pricinples (Modi is compelled to), Hindi will become the national language. All road/ stations will be in Hindi plus, teaching in school will be in hindi.

No it won't , 60% of the population don't speak Hindi and no one can impose it ,not even RSS , Constitution has given official status to 22 languages. India doesn't have a national language and it will never have one.....
And RSS HQ is in Nagpur , Maharashtra and its leaders are prominently Marathi speaking , even Modi is native gujarati speaker...

Mate, I agree, Hindi isn't being imposed as somebody claimed in this thread, maybe he is mistaken. However your 60 percent figure is way off the mark too. Maybe it could be 60 percent people don't speak in Hindi language as a first language. I have traveled across South, western and northern India and I am very much sure number of people who can understand and speak working Hindi are higher than 40 Percent by big margin.

But India need one language other than English for effective countrywide communication... or we will make same mistake we are making till now. India need mild native language like Hindi or Sanskrit in my opinion nationally. religious and ethnic nationalist jingoism wont solve our problem.

I sure hope this doesn't turn the IITs and IISc into another JNU or Jadavpur University.

This whole NEP thing is a jumla from Modi Sarkar. After having a cursory look, I don't see anything beneficial except the choice to exit a B.tech degree. Instead of removing all the unnecessary subjects that are taught in engineering courses and improving and making the course more tough, mathematical(less theoretical) ,practical and job oriented, they are trying to increase the useless subjects which just increase the Course volume and stress and provide ZERO benefit. I also don't see any change in the M.Tech or PHD curriculum, They could have atleast tried to tailor the courses in the areas of Material Sciences, Quantum Computing , Machine Learning, Aeronautics e.t.c. in such a way that the students passed can be directly absorbed by DRDO/ISRO or other research institutes.

Also all this hype of AI based exam checking just exposes the incompetency and idiocy of the members of the panel who have drafted this framework, they have absolutely no idea of what they are doing.

Special education zones is another socialist drama to spend tax money like MNREGA which will give zero benefit, instead of doing that Government should have tried to improve the infrastructure of newly created AIIMS/IIT's /NIT's and IIIIT's.

Sanskrit should be made the national language . It is the mother language of all other Indian languages . Hence there should be no problem. If we implement it now by 2040 it will be widespread nationally.

I sure hope this doesn't turn the IITs and IISc into another JNU or Jadavpur University.
This is a wrong move in my opinion . Science and engineering should have been kept seperate . Or we run risk of infecting the same with idiocracy , woke politics and liberandu ideology so common among students in arts department.

You are completely wrong on this. Tamil predates Sanskrit and Sanskrit has evolved by mixing many languages spoken at that time called Prakrit languages. If there is any language which belongs to all the languages of India including Tamil, it is Sanskrit.
The Dravidian itself is not a proper word of any language in India. It was coined in 18th century by a european. Dravid is the proper word which simply means “the land with water on three sides”. So from Gujrat to Tuticorin to Vizag to Bengal is Dravid. Now tell me if Bengali, Oriya, Marathi, Chattisgarhi and Gujrati are also dravidian languages?
The actual term Dravidian was first employed by Robert A. Caldwell in 1856, who introduced the Sanskrit word dravida into his epoch-making "A Comparative Grammar of the Dravidian or South Indian Family of Languages". This word has been lapped up by idots in south to call themselves original Indians and all North Indians as invaders. The British used this very term to create a north south divide which persists till this day.

Good policy in my opinion if implemented correctly.
If we won't to improve education and make sure next generations don't suffer. You need to make sure every child is taken care of...so how to do it? My idea.

• make school in every villages, everywhere with world class facilities directly under central control & monitoring ). What will these facilities consist of ? For start an AC. sir thande ranhegay to kuch pade gay.

• grade these schools according to there performance, improve where defencies arrise.

scientific study + arts and literature Indian as well as foreign like European.... i would say even Japanese....not religious like we wuz ancient alien & s**t & nationalist jingoism. Thooda bahoot sanskar ki teaching chalegi.

• financial education, history, how economy works is a must.

• you need to control media, social media , entertainment, so children are not indoctrinated by stupid things like Bollywood crap.

• little bit sanik military schools type system can work wonders in my opinion.
discipline child raised is better than jingoistic one.

• make sure school provide food at mid day like mid day meals but with better nutrition. I would go on to say a meat diet once a week. Eggs every day. Brain size is directly proportional for higher intelligence & with rampant malnurished kids in this country.... a generation is lost right there.

• make sure to focus on math's, logical thinking ( programming can help ), drawings & creativity... doesn't matter if student is a failure. if push aside those guy create most trouble.

• make sure student are not forced into debt slavery if they won't to pursue higher education like in west through corrupt pvt institutions we see in India. Improve public education. Bring discipline, enforce it.

•discipline, discipline & more discipline is key along with proper environment.
