Ministry Of Education
The Ministry of Education (MoE), which was previously known as the Ministry of Human Resource Development (1985–2020)], is a Central Ministry in India that is in charge of implementing the Nationwide Policies for Education.
The Ministry has been further classified into two departments: the Department of School Education and Literacy, which is responsible for primary, secondary, and higher secondary education, as well as adult education and literacy, and the Department of Higher Education, which is responsible for college-level education, technical training, scholarship programs, and so on.
The Ministry of Education has existed in India since 1947. The Rajiv Gandhi regime had earlier changed its name from the Ministry of Education to the Ministry of Human Resource Development (MHRD) in 1985.
With the official declaration of the Narendra Modi government’s redrafted “National Education Policy 2020,” the Ministry of Human Resource Development was rebranded back to the Ministry of Education. The Union Council of Ministers approved the revised National Education Policy 2020 on July 29, 2020. In 1986, the NEP 2020 superseded the previous National Policy on Education. The Ministry of Human Resource and Development (MHRD) was renamed the Ministry of Education under the NEP 2020. (MoE). NEP 2020 established a slew of new educational institutions, organizations, and initiatives.
