This chapter describes the policy initiatives of the Modi Government such as the appointment of the Hari Guatam and Kaw Committees to review the functioning of the UGC and AICTE respectively and of the work so far on developing a new education policy. It critiques the process adopted for policy development and the salient features of the report of the TSR Committee and MHRD’s discussion draft, the Input Document. It also critiques the far reaching judgment of the Supreme Court mandating a National Eligibility and Education Test (NEET) for admission to undergraduate medical and dental courses of all colleges including minority institutions. It outlines the controversy over teaching German as a third language in Classes VI–VIII of Kendriya Vidyalayas, and the establishment of world class universities. It outlines the measures taken by Modi Government to carry forward the initiatives taken by the UPA Governments to promote skill development.
