In pursuance of the goals and objectives of the National Education Policy (NEP) 2020 and to assist States and UTs in this task, the Department of School Education and Literacy has developed an indicative and suggestive implementation plan for School Education called ‘Students’ and Teachers’ Holistic Advancement through Quality Education (SARTHAQ)’. This implementation plan was released by the union education minister.

The Government has rolled out the plan of action of National Education Policy 2020 well within one year. The plan keeps in mind the concurrent nature of education and adheres to the spirit of federalism. States and UTs are given the flexibility to adapt this plan with local contextualization and also modify it as per their needs and requirements. This implementation plan delineates the roadmap and way forward for the implementation of NEP, 2020 for the next 10 years, which is very important for its smooth and effective implementation.
 
SARTHAQ has been developed through a wide and intensive consultative process with States and UTs, Autonomous bodies and suggestions received from all stakeholders; around 7177 suggestions/inputs were received from them. A teacher’s fest, ‘ShikshakParv’ was specially organized from 8th to 25th September 2020 for discussing various recommendations of NEP 2020 and its implementation strategies, which attracted around 15 lakh suggestions. 
 
Union Education Minister Ramesh Pokhriyal urged all the stakeholders to use this plan as a guiding star to undertake transformational reforms in the school education sector. He said that like the policy itself, the plan is also interactive, flexible and inclusive. The major focus of SARTHAQ is to define activities in such a manner that delineate goals, outcomes and timeframe i.e., it links the recommendation of NEP with 297 Tasks along with responsible agencies, timelines and 304 outputs of these Tasks.
