The government of India crafted and then launched National Education Policy (NEP) on 29 July, 2020 to reform Indian education system that ensures equal access, affordability, quality, and accountability to each citizen. The policy targeted towards emerging demands and requirements for knowledge and skill to empower the citizen. It has many features including a new structure of 5+3+3+4 curricular that emphasises early childhood care, recognising a need for literacy and numeracy, introducing vocational education, technical education and internship in school from 6th grade, setting up a National Assessment centre called “PARAKH” to ensure learning and development, and ensuring education become more equitable and inclusive, especially to the socially and economically disadvantaged groups. There are some issues such as lack of modern infrastructure, low teacher ratio in schools, colleges and universities; fewer efforts to promote the English language from early education, and lack of resources to provide adequate skill and training to students that need to address for efficient implementation of new education policy. This paper attempts to address recent advancement in technology such as Artificial Intelligence (AI), Machine Learning (ML), and Internet of Things (IoT) plays a vital role to break such barriers and help the government at the initial stage to implement new education policy in an efficient and effective manner.
