The education minister made the statement in response to a written question in the Lok Sabha about whether the government plans to revise the existing reservation norms under the NEP.
The Union Cabinet approved the NEP 2020 on July 29. This is the first education policy of the 21st century and replaces the thirty-four-year-old National Policy on Education (NPE), 1986.
