Prof Nitin Karmalkar, former Vice-Chancellor of Savitribai Phule Pune University and Chairman of the NEP 2020 Implementation State Committee, recently submitted recommendations to the state government.

The steering committee made several important recommendations, including allowing only colleges with a research centre to run a four-year course and providing exit strategies for students each year.

In response to the committee’s recommendations, Prof Karmalkar stated, “Every year, if a student takes a leave of absence, a certificate is issued to him or her. So, they could enrol in another course at a different institute.”

The state government established this important Steering Committee to improve the implementation of the New Education Policy (NEP) 2020 in December 2022, with implementation beginning in the academic year 2023. Shailendra Deolankar, the state director of higher education, was also a member of the 14-member committee.

Karmalkar stated that in order to implement the recommendations, each college or university must form various committees.

“An independent committee should be formed for financial, administrative, and regulatory purposes,” Karmalkar stated.

According to Karmalkar, the steering committee has now submitted its recommendations and is awaiting approval from the state government.

Committee plan

The Steering Committee is working on various aspects of NEP implementation, including the conversion of various stream courses of 3 or 4 years into 1 or 2 years, then multiple disciplinary syllabus entry and exit in the courses, as well as the implementation of the online programme and ODL credit system.

The uniform academic calendar for all universities in the state, credit equivalence, and NEP 2020 branding and communication.
