Early Childhood Care and Education: The Foundation of Learning

Every child in the age range of 3-6 years has access to free, safe, high quality, developmentally appropriate care and education by 2025. Over 85% of cumulative brain development occurs prior to the age of six. Universal access to quality early childhood education is perhaps the best investment that India can make for our children’s and our nation’s future. Access for children aged 3 – 8 years to a flexible, multifaceted, multilevel, play-based and activity-based education is of utmost importance.

Foundational Literacy and Numeracy

By 2025, every student in Grade 5 and beyond has achieved foundational literacy and numeracy. We are in a severe learning crisis: a large proportion of students in elementary school has not attained foundational literacy and numeracy. If action is not taken soon, over the next few years the country could lose 10 crores or more students from the learning system and to illiteracy.

Reintegrating Dropouts and Ensuring Universal Access to Education

Achieve access and participation in free and compulsory quality school education for all children in the age group of 3-18 years by 2030. Bringing children who have dropped out back into the educational fold as early as possible, and preventing others from dropping out is top priority. Access will be increased, especially for Grades 9-12, to achieve 100% GER across school stages.

Curriculum and Pedagogy in Schools

Curriculum and pedagogy are transformed by 2022 in order to minimize rote learning and instead encourage holistic development and 21st-century skills such as critical thinking, creativity, scientific temper, communication, collaboration, multilingualism, problem-solving, ethics, social responsibility, and digital literacy.


Ensure that all students at all levels of school education are taught by passionate, motivated, highly qualified, professionally trained, and well-equipped teachers. Teachers from the very heart of the education process – all teachers will have academic and professional support within a motivating environment and culture. Teachers must feel a part of, and be invested in, the schools and communities in which they serve.

Equitable and Inclusive Education Objective

Achieve an inclusive and equitable education system so that all children have equal opportunity to learn and thrive, and so that participation and learning outcomes are equalized across all genders and social categories by 2030. Special Education Zones will be set up in disadvantaged regions across the country.

Regulation and Accreditation of School Education

India’s school education system is invigorated through effective regulation and accreditation mechanisms that ensure integrity and transparency and foster quality and innovation for continually improving educational outcomes. The regulation will be based on a separation of functions to eliminate conflicts of interest.

Quality Universities and Colleges: A New and Forward-Looking Vision for India’s Higher Education System

Revamp the higher education system, create world-class multidisciplinary higher education institutions across the country – increase GER to at least 50% by 2035. All higher education will happen in multidisciplinary institutions with teaching programs across disciplines and fields to ensure optimized resources, integration across disciplines and vibrant, large education communities.

Institutional Restructuring and Consolidation

Vibrant multidisciplinary institutions of high quality that increase the capacity of higher education in India and ensure equitable access. New institutional architecture with large, well-resourced, vibrant multidisciplinary institutions for teaching and research, which will significantly expand reach and capacity.

Towards a More Liberal Education

Move towards a more imaginative and broad-based liberal education as a foundation for the holistic development of all students, with rigorous specialization in chosen disciplines and fields. A liberal arts education, as so beautifully described and practiced in India’s past, enables one to truly develop both sides of the brain – both the creative side and the analytical side.
