Proposal on new National Education Policy to be ready after grassroot level consultations: Smriti Irani
According to the information given by Union Minister of Human Resource Development, Smriti Irani in a written reply to the Rajya Sabha on July 27, the Proposal on new National Education Policy will be finalised after grassroot level consultations initiated by the state governments.

Irani informed the house that consultation process was on for formulating the 'New Education Policy to meet the changing dynamics of the population's requirement with regard to quality education, innovation and research, aiming to make India a knowledge superpower by equipping its students with the necessary skills and knowledge'.

According to Smriti Irani, nearly 21,500 suggestions have been received on 33 identified themes and an online consultation process was going on She also stated that the State governments had initiated action for conducting the grassroot level consultations.

At an earlier occasion Irani had assured that the draft education policy shall be ready by the end of 2015. She had said that the decade old earlier policy was finalised by 'a select band of bureaucrats, academicians and politicians'.

Furthermore, Irani sees that the goal of education is the empowerment of self and that of the nation by 'talking about the glorious past and culture of India'.

Meanwhile, as it is quite evident by now, Bhartiya Shikshan Mandal and Shiksha Sanskriti Utthan Nyas have become active to push through their own agenda of education based on so called "Indian tradition".
