Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal on Thursday chaired a high-level assembly on the implementation of the National Education Policy 2020 and launched an implementation plan for varsity schooling known as ‘Students’ and Teachers’ Holistic Advancement by way of Quality Education (SARTHAQ)’.

As per a press release, SARTHAQ, developed by the Department of School Education and Literacy, is an indicative and suggestive implementation plan for varsity schooling and was launched as a part of the celebrations resulting in the Amrit Mahotsav on 75 years of India’s independence.

“The plan keeps in mind the concurrent nature of education and adheres to the spirit of federalism. States and UTs are given the flexibility to adapt this plan with local contextualisation and also modify as per their needs and requirements,” the assertion mentioned.

It additional mentioned that this implementation plan ‘delineates the roadmap and means ahead for the implementation of NEP 2020’.

Around 7,177 ideas/inputs had been acquired from all stakeholders for SARTHAQ.

“A teachers’ fest, ‘Shikshak Parv’ was especially organised from September 8 to 25 last year for discussing various recommendations of NEP 2020 and its implementation strategies, which attracted around 15 lakh suggestions,” the assertion added.

It additional mentioned that the key focus of SARTHAQ is to outline actions in such a fashion which it hyperlinks advice with 297 Tasks together with accountable companies, timelines and 304 outputs of those Tasks.

“Attempt has also been made to propose activities in a manner, such that it will be built upon the existing structure rather than creating new structures. Thus, SARTHAQ takes care of the spirit and intent of the policy and is planned to be implemented in a phased manner,” the assertion mentioned.
