NEW DELHI: Union minister Prakash Javadekar on Saturday termed the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 as a revolutionary reform of the 21st Century. He also expressed confidence that India’s Gross Enrolment Ratio (GER) would double in the next 10 years from the current level of about 25 per cent.

"The NEP 2020 will empower the youth, who will take the nation forward in the 21st century. The policy is such that it will make the teaching learning experience enjoyable for students and teachers," the Information and Broadcasting Minister said while delivering the key-note address at the centenary year of Teachers' Day celebrations of Parle Tilak Vidyalay Association here via video link.

The GER is a statistical measure used in the education sector to determine the number of students enrolled in school at several different grade levels. It is used to show the ratio of the number of students who live in a given country to those who qualify for the particular grade level.
