Dr.S. Pavai Madheswari, Dr. S.D. Uma Mageswari,Ms.A.P. Niranjana



Since time immemorial India has made rich and commendable contributions to the field of education. Modern education system was introduced by Macaulay in the 20th century and since then, Indian education followed his propositions. Any reforms or amendments made in education policy were based on Macaulay’s system only. The National Education Policy, 2020 attempts to reform the whole system of education right from early childhood education to research studies. A radical shift in the education system is the need-of-the-hour, especially when the world is transforming into a digital world dominated by technology. Moreover, the disparity observed in the performance of premiere institutions with respect to other institutions and the position of Indian universities in world ranking necessitates the reformation of the education system. This paper attempts to critically analyse all the components of the National Education Policy, 2020 and its projected impact on the system of education in India.
