PM Modi on Saturday chaired a meeting in order to review the progress of National Education Policy and how it is being implemented in the country.

As per reports, PM Modi said that the NEP implementation aims to fulfil the objective of access, equity, inclusivity and quality. He also talks about the school education initiatives like Balavatika, NIPUN Bharat and Vidya Pravesh as they aim for better learning outcomes and holistic development of the students.
