Dr Yeravdekar described the NEP 2020 as an exciting policy and that Dr Kasturi Rangan was the face of the strategy. She said that Goa is well qualified to reap the benefits of NEP and become an educational hub. The policy had evolved through consultations with all stakeholders- academia, the corporate world and even gram panchayats. In its evolution, the policy had gone through four Education ministers and took about four years to crystalise.
