Statista Dossier about education in India

On 29th July 2020, the Union cabinet of India approved the National Education policy of India (NEP 2020). The NEP 2020 replaces the 34-year-old NEP which was released in 1986. This new policy is a comprehensive outline proposing sweeping changes to the status quo to drive forward the development of education in India. This includes, inter alia, revamping the school curriculum, making school and college education more holistic, flexible, and multidisciplinary to suit the needs of the 21st century. This dossier highlights the current state of education in the country. It underscores key figures relative to primary and secondary education including number of school enrolments. Aside from that, it sheds light on higher education with information about the leading educational institutes in the country. The last two chapters of this dossier provide data on employability and other key indicators.
