National Education Policy 2020

From the Desk of Principal

Being an important Autonomous Institute, KJSAC has started the ‘NEP 2020’ implementation from A.Y. 2023-24 as it was ordered by the Government of Maharashtra circulars dated 20th April 2023 & 16th May 2023. We have successfully implemented all the suggestions from NEP 2020 and succeeded in engaging at all levels. The very crux of the NEP is to develop and promote the stakeholders to the most so as to make them the universal citizens
