          After lot of sacrifice of Mahatma Gandhi, the Father of Nation, along with many patriotic persons, India became Independent on 15th August, 1947. We have already passed and celebrated the 50 years of Independence. Still we are much more backward in comparison to the other developed countries. These developed countries not only developed economically, but they are able to develop their countries technologically. India is demographically and geographically different from other countries along with diversity. Even the climatic conditions of different regions of India are different.  From the population point of view, India ranks 2nd position in the World which is estimated to be 17.7% of the total World population. So it is a high level challenge to the Govt. of India to develop the country as a whole. Still we are proud of our Govt. as govt. takes all possible measures to overcome the challenges as far as possible maintaining the uniformity among the citizens.

         Among the other challenges, Education sector is one of the most important challenge as Education is the prime thing to maintain the country in the World platform. Mahatma Gandhi criticised the British Education system by mentioning it as bankrupt and unproductive as it fail to provide global knowledge and cannot solve the problem of unemployment considering future prospect of young energetic Indian generation.

         DIET is the result of National Education policy, 1986. DIET is the apex body for development of Education in the district especially with reference to the elementary education. Inspite of that, DIET has manifold work with other educational agencies and also with the District Administration from time to time.

          Considering the above mentioned views, there is the need of new improvised Education Policy for the future generation, giving up the old and traditional method of Educational practices.

          At present the Govt. of India imposed New Education Policy (NEP), 2020 in the whole country. The view of NEP, 2020 is to take care of our children from the early childhood period (i.e. from 3 yrs) and make them expert in their own interested subject. This policy also emphasise both teacher and students to use technology for gaining and application of knowledge in different field, thereby, provide emphasis on self-dependent and self-employed. It is hoped that these steps of NEP, 2020 will help to strengthen the economy of the Nation and introduce our self in the World as technologically advanced and wise Indian citizen.

        So all conscious Indian citizen should try to understand the initiative and effort of NEP, 2020 and come forward to co-operate with the Govt. of India.

                                                    We shall overcome.
                                                    We shall overcome.
                                           We shall overcome, someday
                                                    Oh, deep in my heart
                                                         I do believe that,
                                            We shall overcome, someday.
