To formulate the New Education Policy (NEP), a nine member panel is appointed which will be headed by the former ISRO scientist, Krishnaswamy Kasturirangan. The Human Resources Development (HRD) Ministry has appointed experts from wide-ranging backgrounds to reform the nation’s education policy.

“The panel has been appointed keeping in mind that the members bring expertise related to the diverse areas of education. Significantly, the panel also reflects the diversity of the country as the members belong to different sections as well as regions,” an official said.

The appointed panel includes ISRO’s former head Kasturirangan and:

– Former IAS officer K J Alphonse Kanamthanam
– Baba Saheb Ambedkar University of Social Sciences VC Ram Shanker Kureel
– Karnataka State Innovation Council former secretary member M K Shridhar
– Language communication expert T V Kattimani
– Guwahati University Persian language professor Mazhar Asif
– Uttar Pradesh’s former education director Krishan Mohan Tripathi
– Princeton University mathematician Manjul Bhargava
– SNDT University former VC Vasudha Kamat

The entire set of panelists have various excellent contributions in their respective fields as well as in the field of education. For instance, K J Alphonse Kanamthanam had played a key role in ensuring 100 per cent literacy at Kottayam and Ernakulam in Kerala and VC Ram Shanker Kureel has wide experience in agriculture sciences and management.

“The panelists belong to different age groups which should be helpful as they would be able to bring experience, innovation and also global exposure which are so vital for such an important policy formulation,” an official said, continuing that the diversity would help the committee understand the various issues that are brought up while formulating key policy documents.

Under former cabinet secretary T S R Subramanian who researched on the NEP, the panel will also use inputs from the panel reports.
