“This Budget has clearly taken measures towards holistic learning of the students, upskilling of teaching professionals and Digital learning. With the rise of edutech platforms in the country, we are glad that the Budget has addressed on strengthening digital ecosystem through National Digital Educational Architecture (NDEAR) and training/upskilling of teachers.
With the evolving digital landscape and online learning, the teaching and assessment is also witnessing a dramatic shift. This Budget has addressed on holistic assessment of the child through redesigning the student assessment cards. This move will further strengthen the quality of education and assessment in the country.
Having said that, the Budgetary allocation to Education sector remains the same as last year which is Rs99,300 crore. Increased funding as a percentage of GDP would have ensured strategic allocation in the right direction to support online learning and strengthening digital infrastructure for online learning.”
