Today, PM Modi addressed a webinar on Budget implementation in the education sector. The PM claimed that in the Budget 2021, after health, the second biggest focus is on education, skill, research, and innovation.
Modi said, “To build Aatmanirbhar Bharat, the youth of the country needs self-confidence which is directly connected to their education, knowledge, and skill. The new National Education Policy has been developed with this key thought.”
The PM added, “Confidence comes only when one realizes that his studies are giving him the opportunity to do his work and also the necessary skills. The new National Education Policy has been made with this goal.”
Modi stated that the budget has further expanded the efforts made to link Education with Employment and Entrepreneurial Capabilities over the years. “As a result of these efforts, in terms of scientific publications, today India has come in the top three countries,” added Modi.
The PM also talked about the Atal Tinkering Labs in schools and Atal Incubation Centers in higher institutions.

Under the National Initiative for Developing and Harnessing Innovation, over 3,500 startups have been nurtured.
The PM stressed that restricting knowledge, research, is a great injustice to the country’s potential. To strengthen the space, atomic energy, DRDO, agriculture and many such sectors are being opened for their talented youth, said PM Modi.
The PM also talked about the Future Fuel, Green Energy which is very important for self-sufficiency, and for that, the Hydrogen Mission, which was announced in the budget is a very big resolution. He further added that India has tested the Hydrogen Vehicle and the country has to move forward together to make hydrogen as a fuel for transport.
At the end, the PM claimed that the new National Education Policy has given an incentive to use more and more local language. “Now it is the responsibility of all the academics, experts of every language, to know how the best content of the country and the world should be prepared in Indian languages. This is completely possible in this era of technology,” said Modi.
