The Ministry of Human Resource Development has been renamed as Ministry of Education. This decision has been taken during the Modi cabinet meeting. During this meeting, the Modi government has also approved the New Education Policy.

Along with this, the new education policy was also approved. Now there will be only one regulatory body for the entire higher education sector so that the chaos in the education sector can be eliminated. In May, Prime Minister Narendra Modi had talked about the major reforms required in the education sector and he had laid special emphasis on the use of technology in the education sector.
