20 January 2021


Ashwani Awasthi, Managing Director, RICS School of Built Environment - "The Government of India has announced transformational changes in the education sector while launching the National Education Policy (NEP2020) last year. While NEP 2020 focuses on raising the quality of education however upgradation of infrastructure of public higher education and professional institutions is key to achieving the desired outcomes. Also, the last one year introducing significant usage of digital infrastructure in education, the investment in digital infrastructure also needs to be enhanced. This means that the government needs to make a 12% to 15% higher budgetary allocation than that has been done in the current year."
