The cornerstone of any country’s development is its people; their ability to drive the country ahead – socially and economically.

And to make this happen, education is key. India is on its path to become a self-reliant US$5 trillion economy and to support this vision, a major responsibility rests with the current and potential youth.

Thus, it becomes imperative for the government to have a deeper and renewed focus on the education sector.

The recently passed National Education Policy (NEP) has already set the pace for revamping the education sector of the country. However, while NEP is a significant move, a lot remains to be achieved across the areas of skill development, education infrastructure, blended learning, and education financing.
