NEP to strengthen regional languages: Karnataka Education Minister – Times of India

MANGALORE: The implementation of the National Education Policy (NEP-2020) will further strengthen Indian languages, including Kannada, and give students the opportunity to choose the language as an open elective, Karnataka Higher Education Minister Dr CN CN Ashwatha Narayan said on Monday.

He told a press conference at Mangalore University here that the policy was aimed at creating a well-organized personality.


The implementation of NEP will not pose any threat to Kannada or any other regional language. Learning Kannada language will be compulsory for 2 years at degree level. Also, an opportunity will be given to choose a language as an open elective, the minister explained.

NEP will change the assessment system and the teaching-learning process accordingly. Narayan explained, this policy seeks to provide all the necessary knowledge and skills.

“To facilitate the implementation of NEP, help lines have been set up at the state and university levels and help desks have been set up at the institutional level. More than 10,000 teaching faculty will be trained and workshops, seminars, interactions, etc. will be conducted extensively,” he added.


Earlier, inaugurating a one-day seminar on NEP-2020 organized by the University of Mangalore, he said NEP hoped that colleges would come out of the current affiliation system and be able to award degrees to each institution just like their own.

He said quality education would only become a reality through strong institutions and pave the way for institutional empowerment by allowing NEP cooperation and partnership, adding that the NEP introduced by Prime Minister Narendra Modi was the biggest reform since independence.

College Given and Technical Education Commissioner P. Pradeep said the policy aims to achieve the target by making changes in the curriculum, pedagogy and assessment.
