It is wrong to say that the government is not spending enough on education. At present it spends up to four percent of GDP. Expenditure on education is still increasing. Many countries collapsed economically due to problems such as the outbreak of Corona virus, the Ukraine-Russia war. However, India is capable even in this situation. This is Jame’s side,’ he said.
Education is a long-term process. Therefore, the policy will be implemented through the partnership of various entities by thinking about the future. India has quality. But the challenge is to give proper direction to this quality. Even the youth of rural areas are now trying to innovate. It will take 10 years to fully implement the National Education Policy. Regulations have been prepared by the University Grants Commission (UGC) to allow foreign universities to come to India. The work of finalizing this regulation is in the final stage.- Dharmendra Pradhan, Union Education Minister
‘The state government should bear the cost’
Under the Right to Education Act (RTE), the central government provides a fee reimbursement amount to the private schools that study the fees of the students up to class VIII. However, if the concerned students are facing difficulties in paying the fees for their education from class IX, then the state government should bear the burden of the cost,’ Pradhan suggested to the state government.
