Jamia’s AC, EC yet to approve implementation of National Education Policy
Although the NEP was approved in principle by the University, it still requires approval from an Academic Council (AC) and the Executive Council (EC) for the implementation.
The Registrar of Jamia Millia Islamia Nazim Husain Al Jafri stated that the process of approving the NEP is in progress and will be approved by July 15th.
“Though the policy is yet to be approved by AC and EC, we have begun the process for the implementation of the new policy. We are hoping to approve the policy by July 15. The university has formed a committee for the NEP approval. We are likely to table the policy in Academic Council soon and later it will be passed by EC,” Jafri informed PTI.
The NEP that was approved by the Union Cabinet replaces the 34-year-old National Policy on Education framed in 1986. It is aimed at paving the way for fundamental reforms to schools and higher education to help make India an international knowledge superpower.

The choice of three or four-year undergraduate programs with multiple entries and exit options for degree courses the addition of three and a half crore seats to higher education institutions. These institutions will now be governed by a single regulator, with the elimination of M.Phil programs, as well as the fixing of fees, are just a few of the reforms to higher education that are outlined in the latest NEP.
The process for approval of any modification to the policy on education Jafri explained that typically, a committee is established which submits its report to the government seeking the suggestions of departments’ heads.
Then, the new policy is then approved by The Faculty Committee and thereafter is put before the Academic Council.
“Following the approval by Academic Council, the policy is sent to Executive Council, the highest statutory body of the university,” the president declared.
Although the NEP is not yet approved, several departments have already begun working on the program for the four-year graduate programs.
The departments are having discussions and discussions to develop the syllabus.
“The curriculum is expected to be finalized by July 15,” said Jafri.
